Easter Eggs, Chocolate Bunnies, and a Lab that think's she's a Log.

Palm Sunday and the church bells are ringing.  Breakfast would be later this morning.

But first, it appears the redheaded Easter bunny left some eggs around the house. You see, my husband is hitting the road this week and if there are any storms and cancelled flights he might not be back for Easter.  So we did our Easter egg hunt early.  It's something my brother and I loved as kids and after my brother died on Good Friday in 2014, I kept up the tradition if only to get a smile out of my Dad when I share the photos.

I spotted the first one (that computer tower is made out of a 1940's analytical balance - when scientists get bored)

"If you call me Flopsy - someone's going to get hurt"
 In the office
 In the shop - how hard IS an easter egg
Someone hid them everywhere.

All around the house - more candy eggs.
Even in the kitchen

Time for breakfast!

We're waiting for warmer weather to finish the plasterwork in the remodeled kitchen but so happy to have it back together (a sink used to be in the middle of that counter - that used up a lot of work space).

Then it was time to get the heavy bedspread off the bed and put up the pawprint blanket that's comfy without being too hot. (yes, the bedroom is as small as it appears - it's at the back corner of the house and VERY quiet.  The big master bedroom at the front of the house was made into a den/office where I can write and we can curl up and watch movies with Abby between us on the couch.
And open up windows up and downstairs as it's going to be in the 70's today!
But first - my husband had never blown up a Peep.  Not with a microwave, not with C-4, sigh.

Time to remedy that!

Into the microwave.
And watch them blow up. (when you are a kid this was mindlessly entertaining.)

VOOM!  (next year - a vacuum chamber!)

What do do with those?

Peeps Over Easy with Bacon and Toast?
Hmm.  Maybe not.

If I don't move they'll think I'm a log and accidentally drop the bacon.

How about Danish Braid with Raspberry Filling to go with that bacon.

I'll just have the little end piece.  Because there's still the chocoalate bunny.

What to do with the rest of the peeps?
You all enjoy the rest of the Easter Season. 
At home or wherever you are.


  1. What a fun egghunt!!! We used to do that with the grands, but they all seem to do it at their own homes now. Maybe it is time to do one for our humans:)

    Mom is drooling over that danish - hard to find a really good one these days with so few good bakeries around.

    Woos - Lightning and Misty

    1. These are bake from frozen sold at a local Catholic school's yearly fundraiser. Butter Braids is the name and they are even better than the one's I make. We usually buy 3 or 4 of them every year.

  2. Abby I sure do hope your plan to get BACIN WORKED,
    Hugs Madi and mom

  3. Love your Easter egg hunt and that pastry looks delicious!!

    I laughed out loud at Godzilla and the peeps. My son collects those figures and I can so see him doing this with them ;)

    Happy Easter

    Bell Fur Zoo Mama

  4. Growing up it was jelly beans we searched for. Haven't done a hunt for years, maybe we should next weekend.
    Happy early Easter!

  5. Using the peeps for an Easter Egg hunt is a good idea. Plus the don't go bad and spoil when they aren't found. It was very clever. And Peeps for breakfast sounds great for us. Happy Easter

  6. Ghostwriter remembers Easter with her 2 siblings back in the 60s. Brother always built a special cart out of Legos for his chocolate bunny, and kept an inventory of every jelly bean and peep. Have fun!

  7. I will have my furst easteregg hunt... and I'm totally egg-sided.... I love the idea with the chickens and the microwave....hope I will find that chickies in my easter basket ;o)
