The Weekend and the Week Ahead

I hope your Easter weekend was nice; ours was. We enjoyed perfect spring weather here -- big, fluffy white clouds in bright blue skies, and just a hint of a breeze. The spring flowers are blooming all around the neighborhood, and trees are starting to bud and bloom. Looking at all of that just made my heart feel light and happy. My soul felt the same way -- as we celebrated Easter.

I spoiled myself this weekend by picking up a spring tablecloth (on sale) to use with Easter dinner:

basketweave tablecloth

I love the basketweave pattern, but I love that's it's 100% polyester even more -- no ironing! :-) I'm gonna find out if any other colors are available, if so, I'm snagging some more! The table setting was simple, but pretty, with my Martha Stewart placemats from *years* ago, and some spring flowers in a basket. Simple is good. I can't call dinner a total success; there were those at the table that were already full of Easter candies, chocolate bunnies and sugar cookies! (insert pretend grumpy face here) LOL

This week is Spring Break here, and the days ahead are already full of family and projects and perhaps trying out a few of those stay-cation ideas... I'm gonna take a little break and enjoy it all.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

See you in a few days!

Sun and now the rain. I do love spring but need more sun to make it seem real.

Have a great week with all your adventures. I cannot wait to see what fun you have......
