What about colour eggs and noticing I worked "poached" into the original post. Eggs, poached, get it?

But since there can be no socializing, and NO packed churches, then what?


Last time I coloured eggs... Nixon was the US president. [icon_lol2.gif]

We'll probably have a couple of grandkids over, damn, do we ever miss them.
We'll be sitting on the backsteps watching them hunt for the Easter eggs, but first, and even before hiding the eggs, I have the job of picking up all the little "chocolate droppings" left behind by Bambi.
I would be in trouble if there was any confusion.

Use a shop vac for that job?

:-X Easter. Family stuff. Logicalview.
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

We haven't coloured eggs in years, haven't done the chocolate thing for at least a year. I will put on a roast, make a sugar free dessert. Kids are still living with us so we don't need to worry about not being able to see them because of self-isolation.

Our church has a Good Friday service and Easter Sunday services planned - online. I'll be streaming those. Nice thing about humans is that we can adapt and overcome challenges. Really feeling grateful for the tech that allows us to do so. After the services are streamed they have a Zoom hangout, so if you really miss the socializing you can see all your buddies.

We've always been pretty low-key for these holidays, this will not be a huge change for us.

Yup. She's lucky to have you. :D :D When I brought dad over here to show him my new wreck of an old house, he fired up his chainsaw and cut down some trees that were growing into the garage roof. Nevermind that he was fresh out of KGH.
