Our Easter Weekend

April 25, 2011 § 5 Comments

Along with the new couch came, inherited from a friend, a glass table and chairs set…

that I absolutely had to make room for.  As you can see, Hercules agrees.

It’s a great little set up for coffee in the morning or if I want to whip off some cards and don’t feel like cluttering up the dining room table.  I can also sit there with my laptop and maybe work on my novel.

The in-laws came over for dinner and it was lovely.  MIL brought me this gorgeous arrangement…

and I picked up the tin basket and coloured eggs (I’m not sure what they’re made of) at our local craft store for less than $10.00.  I snagged the ribbon off of something else, so that was free.

Last night we had roast beef, roasted carrots and turnip, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, homemade buns, cheese sauce and gravy.  Oh, and trifle for dessert.  It was awesome…

…especially the gravy.  I swear I could live off the stuff.  Thanks to my MIL who taught me how to make her German Mennonite mother’s gravy.

Today has been about taking it easy.  I’m making a stew with leftovers, putting away the good dishes and gathering up the laundry for the week.

Hubby, well…

he’s doing taxes.  Poor buggar.  Despite the hours spent in the kitchen and laundry room, I still think I got the better end of the deal.
