easter 2007

before another sunday comes to past, i need to catch up on last week's festivities. as usual, i spent another sunday at jackie and the hippie's. amy also joined us ... as crochet had been mentioned. we spent much time laughing on sunday, ... and spilling things. oops. (sorry about the tablecloth jackie!!!)(but i wasn't the only one!)

the main event of the day's menu was roasted leg of lamb !!! yum! see how pretty it is? and it was so delicious ... it was so tender and flavorful. jackie is an amazing cook.

and the spread ... whipped sweet potatoes, baked broccoli with parmesan, an au jus from the lamb drippings, yummy red wine, and laughter and friendship. and afterwards, a small serving of strawberry shortcake (and another spot on the tablecloth)(oops)(three out of four of us did that too!)(of course, not jackie).

and, what's easter w/o the easter bunny? well, the hippie had knitted stuart a little friend, which he's been working on, off & on, for several months ... i think her name shall be lulu.

stuart's been really busy lately, i'm not so sure if i should let him near knives .... nevertheless, i really needed to free up some counter space, so i purchased a knife rack. yay!

this illustrates more than you can decipher. all the notes are over on flickr.

i love twilight, and i love my sunflower lights ....

yum! another batch of tasty hummus!

things are changing ... that's the beauty of a season ... change is good. change is different. change brings new opportunities and hope.

one thing i love about this time of year is the extended daylight hours, minus the (yet) crippling heat of summer.

and my colors are off and over exaggerated ... but, the color (i think) expresses the feeling of the late afternoon sun, bouncing off a wall .... glowing . i love the glow.

i moved my bed from infront of the windows to across from the windows ... and it's (the bed) just beneath the sunspot in this shot. some people can stare endlessly at fish in an aquarium (and yes, i can do that too), a lava lamp, a campfire, the clouds drifting across the sky ... and i can stare endlessly at the sunlight dancing across a wall, lawn, lake .... it's like a campfire.

now, the pollen is another story.

what else? i got some new duds the other day ... with my rei membership and dividend, i got some soft and stretchy prana capri pants. i also splurged and got a skirt! i wore the pants today, with a top i knitted last spring.

it is spring here ... though it's starting to feel much more like summer.

... and the diet? well ... it's all good. though i'm feeling the need to revisit phase 1. and, lately, i've been craving steak. hmmm ....

good thing i've mastered my broiler and can cook these babies medium rare!
