Easter 2008

I hope everyone had a wonderful and peaceful Easter. Especially that you've all had the chance to spend quality time with family and friends. Dave and I feel so lucky and appreciative to have two wonderful children. Our daughter was home (with her cat, the fiancé had to work) from New Brunswick. Here are random pictures of our wonderful weekend together.

Everything starts with a glass of wine...

Moving along with baking. While I waited for my daughter's arrival Thursday evening I baked these pumpkin carob muffins...

... a pumpkin creamcheese pie and two strawberry pies (one of which was given to my mother).

Breakfast Friday morning. As I've mentioned many times before, I love baking and cooking but my favorite is cooking a ''big breakfast''.

Our daughter's cat ''Puss'' and yes he's on the table.

Then Friday evening things turned into a slight cold for me so I medicated myself with herbs, supplements and vitamins.

Saturday's supper - creamed lobster on toast with fries.

Easter morning.

A beautiful gift from a good friend, Winnie. A coral replica. She offers gifts for no reason at all... that's the kinda good person she is. It is going to look very nice in our bathroom. This is exactly the kind of decor I love for our home. Thank you so much Winnie.

Easter Day breakfast - another ''big breakfast''.

All the food looks so good. Boy do I ever recognize that golden foil bunny rabbit.....mmmmmm Lindt chocolate is the best. I hope you get over your cold quickly; but sometimes it is the only way we can get a rest now and then.

Thanks gals for leaving comments. Receiving comments just make my day a little more perfect then it already is.

My cold is not really better but I will see the doctor that comes on campus every Wednesday morning. Have to get something for that horrible cough I have. I hate having to give in to meds but this time I don't think I have a choice.
