I just love to see all the signs of new life out there!
...and I'm watching my red maples sending out their first leaves. Thankfully, spring will be here in time for Easter...which is almost upon us! It seems mighty early this year...and for good reason.
Easter is a surprise holiday...we never know exactly where it will fall from one year to the next. Apparently it is always on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. Based on this formula, this year is the earliest that any of us will ever be celebrating Easter. The next time that Easter will be this early will be in the year 2228 (which is 220 years from now). So if it still feels like winter in your part of the world...maybe that's why!
I've only got two weeks left...and lots to do. I'll be baking paska shortly (Easter bread)...which my grand kids love to help decorate.
They also look forward to making little bird nests every year. We make the nests from rice krispee squares...use jelly bean eggs...and place a 'little peep' in each nest. Even the wee ones can help with this!
So, I just thought I'd get you all thinking Easter...since it's only two weeks away. Don't let it surprise you!
