"Happy Easter"

It is a beautiful Easter Sunday. God has given us new birth.
                                                    My client's beautiful peach orchid.

The table is ready in my little 12 x 12 dining-room.
 It's a tight squeeze. I used my table-cloth from Peru and had to cover it so my son-in-law will eat at the table. He's so afraid of spilling something on this irreplaceable gift from my daughter when she travelled to South America last year. He's adorable.

The dinner 
Ham & pineapple
Samosas for the veg-heads
scalloped potatoes
sweet turnip
a vegetable salad
whole wheat rolls
plenty of wine
upside down apple cake with whipped cream and cinnamon on top
coffee or tea
The Easter bunny has been by with baskets for the little ones and some chocolates & jb's for the big folk.

We'll have an Easter egg hunt after dinner.
After managing to steal a few jelly-beans, Audrey is upstairs in the spare bedroom. Can you hear her yelling? She, Ed & Lily will be tucked safely away from little hands and my table will survive. I've given them food, water, treats, beds, toys and the radio's on. She's still yelling.  "Sorry, Audrey."

It will be so great to have everyone home for dinner to celebrate..

"I wish everyone an enjoyable and Happy Easter. 
And remember ...Keep your paws off other peoples' jelly-beans."

hugs, Deb


  1. Beautiful table! And sounds like a wonderful menu. We too have to put the cats into the bedroom when it comes time for setting the table for a gathering. They really can't understand why they can't sit there in the mist of us... but it's only until we clear the table and then they can join us again. Happy Easter Deb!

    1. Oh yes, I understand. The reason Ed, Lily & Audrey go to the bedroom is because they are afraid of the little ones. Best for everyone.

  10. Your dining room is only 12 x 12? It looks so much larger? How do you do it?

    1. It's a tight squeeze but we manage. It has a 9 1/2 foot ceiling.
