Spring?

Posted on: 2014/04/19

I think spring is FINALLY in the first here in Western New York.   It was a cold brutal winter and I look forward to Warner days. That is probably one of the reasons I am so excited about Easter this year.
In general I am not a holiday person. I believe that has more to do with not having children than I care to admit….until now. I am looking at this as a celebration of Spring and ask that brings. I have a delicious meal planned for the two of us.
After a 1 1/2 hour hunt for a ham for two people I refused to accept failure–I was not willing to spend $8 on said ham. I settled on a 7 lb spiral ham. Talk about leftovers. Ham in hand I headed home to decide the menu and this is what was decided on:

Spiral Ham
Parmesan Smashed Potatoes
Bacon & Shallot Green Beans
Roasted Spaghetti Squash
Beets & Horseradish
Purple Eggs (pickled)
Pumpernickel Bread
Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting
Raspberry Jello with whipped topping

Wonder if I have enough food….lol

I came to the realization that I have spent little time on learning to Crochet. After thinking on this a bit I learned something….I am too tough on myself. I wanted to learn new things and that spiraled out of control. I was trying to do too much. So I decided that if the only be thing I work on for this year is Crocheting that is okay with me. So I gathered my supplies and will be spending time learning this weekend. Mid May I have a meet up with needle crafters. I am looking very forward to this.
I also learned that trying new things whenever the opportunity arises is my new look on life. I feel like I didn’t pay off the day spring cleaning my mind. lol I feel recharged and refreshed.
May you have a bright and cheery spring!
