The weather was pleasant for Easter Sunday. After attending sunrise service we welcomed kids and grandkids for lunch and an egg hunt. Sitting outside after the hunt was very nice even if it was windy. Thankfully the rain waited until today.
The white peony is in our yard, but the pink and yellow roses are at the health care facility. Wish their stunning blooms could last for a longer time. Excessive winds and pelting rains contribute to their short appearances.

I was inspired by Town and Country Mom to try the cocktail napkin covered eggs. Her blog shows her beautiful eggs and gives wonderful instructions. You will definitely want to see her successful batch of these decorative eggs. http://townandcountrymom.blogspot.com/
Mine were done with some leftover autumn napkins.
I was not crafty enough to do but a few.
Maybe I'll decorate more eggs in another pattern in another year.
I feel like I just got April back. Let me explain. Ever since April 1st I have been calling each weekday to find out whether or not I had jury duty. Well, on Monday I had to report in at the Federal Justice Building in Memphis. The selection of a 14-member jury for a criminal case took hours. Thankfully my name was never called. I don't believe I would have made a very good juror. For one thing my mind might have strayed to my mother. Her confusion is increasing. I try my best to ease her mind when I am with her. Just to be home today and not in a courtroom was blissful.
