As is the tradition for us, the Saturday before Easter my grandchildren come over to color eggs. I hard boil enough so each child has a dozen eggs, so that's five dozen! My oldest grand is 12 now and I wasn't sure he'd still want to color eggs, but he did! Yay!
I added a different coloring technique this year that the older ones seemed to enjoy. I put some rice in a little bowl, then put drops of food coloring into the rice and worked the egg around the colored rice which transferred the colors. We got some fun effects!
As usual, things get pretty messy and my daughter loves that I'll have the mess at my house. Heaven knows she cleans enough messes every day at her own!
Once the eggs were colored, Kyle took filled plastic eggs outside to hide, then the hunt was on.
Saturday's weather was glorious! However, later than day, the flu bug hit my house hard. Gary had been holding it off, but it finally put him in bed Saturday evening and I made him stay there all day Sunday too. Meanwhile, I went to church, and the "kids" that could came over for dinner. I gave the house a good spray of Lysol and said a prayer so that no one else would get sick. Unfortunately, Tuesday morning, Kirsten came home early from work, looking like the fever was coming on, headache, and tired. Sure enough, the flu got her too. Knock on wood, I'm okay so far!
Today I was able to take a lovely drive up the Yakima Valley to Yakima so I could shop for new carpet for our office up there. The day was sunny and warm and when you can see snow-covered Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier before you get to Prosser, you know the drive will be spectacular! My mission for carpet was successful and I think it will make a big difference in the sound quality for the office.
So with Easter activities and taking care of my sick ones, all I've managed is to get to the gym to get some steps on my Fitbit. Guess that's something.
