Have a Blessed Easter!

Happy Good Friday!

Decided today, (mid 50's) would still be a good soup day for Mama, so I created a little pot of soup out of thin air and a couple pantry items. Hey, that made me feel like dear Ree Drummond, Pioneer  You will love her if you have never met her!

Next on my list today... Bake some Strawberry Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting... And jelly beans on top...  Cute and yummy. Finish cleaning dining room, my bedroom... Ugh...  A nap sounds awesome, however.

It is looking like we will be three for Easter dinner... My son, my mom, and moi.  We will play some spinner, have some springtime menu/Paleo lunch, maybe hang curtains in dining room....  Sounds delightful. Hope you have a nice holiday, as well... Maybe a little Easter basket or two, some fresh flowers like these from my sister/cousin... Perchance a chocolate rabbit? Of course, a time of gratitude for the season itself and the rebirth, second chances, and Glory of God's greatest gift.
