How was your weekend? We had a house full and I cooked Easter dinner after not cooking for that holiday for seven or so years. I started directly after morning Mass. Last night after the kids left mid afternoon, I crashed on the sofa and breathed a relaxing sigh of contentment.
Saturday, my daughter and I attended a bridal shower of a dear friend of the family. We had a good time seeing many people we knew and reconnecting with people we haven't seen in a while. All wonderful. Later our family went out for dinner and sadly, the meal was woefully late.
Is it a thing to not update you as to why your meal is over an hour later after salads? Grr. What was frustrating is that other tables were getting their food in a timely manner. I doubt we will go back and this was once a favorite restaurant.
This morning I'm on the last load of laundry and I'm catching up on the internet after a long weekend break. I cooked enough food yesterday so we have plenty of leftovers and that is even after loading my son up with some leftovers.
I'm becoming my dad and my gram....

Because we had a house full, Holly hid most of the weekend and Frodo is exhausted from being with his beloved family members. So there were no cat chases! We also installed a pretty fancy baby gate at the base of the steps (it swings out!) and that is stopping Frodo from following you know who up the stairs.
Of course the humans had trouble navigating the gate. I'm thrilled to NOT be climbing over a broken wooden gate - that was dangerous but exciting whenever I cleared it successfully. Just imagine, I used to leap over baby gates while holding a toddler and a cup of coffee....ah, youth!
Today there is SNOW and I chose instead to show you the beginnings of spring and blue skies.
