Sunshine of a sunny day

Our Easter break at the cabin was filled with all kinds of sunshine. Even though someone was sick, someone didn’t sleep very much, and the waffle iron didn’t work properly, we had a wonderful time. It was grandbaby’s first time sleeping at the cabin and after a few hours of busy exploring, he settled down very nicely. It doesn’t take much to entertain a two year old, does it.

The birches are getting tall, all lean and beautiful and just sporting a light shade of green on the top

providing a wonderful backdrop for our red, white and blue.

Husband and I got our workouts keeping up with the little one and playing highly competitive bandyhockeysoccermatches on the patio with the big one. It is hilarious.

Other than that, I didn’t really do much of anything than being with my family. When we first started celebrating Easter up there, I would spend a lot of time in the kitchen making roasts of lamb and sauces that took forever and the in-laws would visit and we would eat a lot. Then grandson came along and I would rather spend the day with him so we started serving precooked chicken. Now that we are the proud grandparents of two little boys, we have moved even further away from the traditional Easter dinner, serving precooked beef burgers with an assortment of toppings and veggies. Happy lazy grandma:)

My knitting project was still safely tucked away in its bag when we went home, and my slow needlepoint project was also left untouched, but I did finish the hand stitching on Teddy’s Quilt which was handed over at school this morning.

So how was your holidays; did you spend them doing chores or happily relax them away?


  1. Almost no sewing done, but lots of good times with family.:) Sounds like you have the holiday all figured out!

  2. Sounds like a perfect time. Love grandson's snow suit....lazy grandma cooking is my style now too....Only once in a blue moon do I cook fancy. You will get back to sewing soon enough. xox

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter! We were on the road coming home from Boise Idaho where we did not find a suitable home available. (6 days - not working on my deadline quilts!)
