Easter Again

Just waiting around the corner for us „ Easter“ , yes those couple of days off and time to eat more chocolate and enjoy what is in store for us. You probably know that I never really did the Detox diet and now there is the problem with Easter…… The time itself isn’t a problem but all that chocolate out there trying to get my attention when I walk into a store and it is screaming out at me “buy me”….

There seems to be chocolate Easter bunnies lurking in every corner of every store and they seem to follow my around the store too…. Hopefully I won’t have a chocolate bunny nightmare!!! OMG….. The thought of “CHOCOLATE EASTER BUNNIES INVADE LOCAL STORE” … Now that’s a headline!!
But my worries are that there may not be an after Easter diet like there is for other times of the year. This I see as a major problem. Not that I am on a diet or dieting, it is just the fact that I want to look at all those glossy magazine covers and see what the latest dieting fads are, and all I see now is recipes for Easter brunch , cook a great meal for a crowd( okay with a crowd…… Sorry folks my place isn’t big enough for everyone, maybe next time).
What am I going to cook and is it going to look like what I see in those magazines….

Nothing could be worse than…. Just imagine: nothing looks like the pictures; then what…. Okay, thank goodness I saved the magazines. All I have to do is cut out the pictures of the dishes and then place them next to the dish that I cooked, so that if anyone isn’t sure what it should look like all they have to do is look at the picture I cut out and placed next to the food…. Problem solved and everyone is happy or at least I hope so?????
Oh and not to forget the right table deco stuff too… There I need to invest about $500, 00 to have my table look like in the magazine and everything looks so perfect too. If my table looked like that I wouldn’t let anyone touch anything, and say to everyone “You can look at the deco and take pictures & selfies too if you like, but please don’t touch anything”. I know it doesn’t sound very nice but with all the effort and money I would invest, I don’t want my Easter event to be spoiled by one of my friends getting the idea that they can sit at the table and enjoy what they are seeing. NO it will be a simple eat in the kitchen affair and the dining room will be corded off to visitors…. You know sort of like in a museum.
Thank goodness that idea is taken care of, because I have sooooo much to prepare for Easter and so, I am sorry to say I have to stop writing here and leaf through all the magazines to decide what to do and what to eat on Easter and this alone requires a lot of time, even though I know the Easter stuff has been in all the stores since after Christmas….

I am a last minute Easter person, but don’t tell my friends! Thanks and don’t forget to plan your Easter too!

Hot Days and Cool Thoughts

With sweltering summer weather and endless days of sunshine it often brings us to wish for a couple of cooler days. Isn’t that always so??? It’s cold outside so we wish for warmer weather and then it’s warm or too hot, then we want cooler weather. Life at its finest!! What’s the best temperature?

But that’s not what I really wanted to say here. Now reading through the endless bits of marvelous and interesting news stories; I came across something that really got my attention…. What you ask???

Christmas decorations being sold in a store (not a specialty store either)… Well, I guess you can never start toooo early thinking about that time of year and when the temperature is boiling outside I can let my thoughts wander to the cold month of December. I need to put my sweater on!

I can see my Christmas tree now before me …. I should pop by that store and get some decorations before everyone else grabs them all up and I may only be left with some tinsel! I feel a panic attack coming on and I hope my guy gets home in time so we can rush over there and stock up before December. Though I am sure he will tell me that I am nuts and ask if I was sitting in the sun too long today?

But a little secret; I did go up in the attic to check out what sort of decorations I have… That did calm my nerves a bit but then again what happens when December comes and there are new decorations in the stores and I find them nice too??? I got it!!! Have 2 Christmas trees in our house then my problem is solved. Does anyone out there know anyone who normally has 2 Christmas trees in their house at Christmas? I don’t, but I could start a new fad on our block.

Somehow, this Christmas decoration stuff just doesn’t seem to fit into my summer way of thinking and shopping, so I think I’ll just pass and let all of you out there buy what you want from the store while I enjoy myself at the beach…But, I will be thinking of you!
