How did it get here? – We’ve always celebrated Easter at my brother’s house. He made his famous Chicken Kiev. Then my sis-in-law broke her shoulder. Last year was low-key but this year we are all back together…at my house. I really don’t mind. I’m doing ham. Easy peasy. No fancy Chicken Kiev from me!
Is it time for change? – Since Easter dinner is at my house, I can switch up the menu. Perhaps try a German Dutch Baby pancake! Or an egg casserole to go with that ham. (Throw easy peasy out the window here!) We’re doing an early afternoon brunch meal that will allow some folks to make another pilgrimage afterward. All good. The thought of wearing sweats at suppertime is thrilling.
Memories – Easter was always a favorite holiday. It was busy with church services and traditions, more so than Christmas. Weather was better too. I loved the special foods my mother made just for Easter. She always had a ham — the kind that you need to cook. So yummy. Her homemade potato salad was the best. There were also pickled red-beet eggs that you ate with horseradish, egg cheese and coconut desserts. There was always time for a walk afterwards to work it off.
No, I don’t need a job! – When I worked I joined LinkedIn. It’s a networking site for business people. I haven’t been active in years except when I get a note that someone I know changed jobs. Then the curiosity gets the best of me. Over the past two months or so, I keep getting notices that companies are visiting me for possible jobs. If I needed a job, this wouldn’t happen at all! I like retirement.
So how was your week?
