Easter - happy to you!

Woke up at 6 am to close the windows since it was starting to rain and we prefer the rain to stay outside of the house.
Got up at 7:15 to make breakfast and monitor candy intake.
At church at 8:15 to prepare for choir at the 8:45 service.
Poured down rain during the church service (indoors) and caused us all to feel like school kids when Pastor Jim said to us all "Pay no attention to what's going on outside and pay attention to what's going on in here!"
Hung out at home while the rain dried up.
Went to an Easter egg hunt at the Wildflower Center, ate lunch there too - EXCELLENT food. I got the black bean soup and it was as good as mine, especially when I added the red onions from Paul's garden salad (which he loved). Giselle enjoyed her tuna salad on a croissant so much that she didn't offer us ANY of it; although she was too full to finish her pasta salad. Got a really cool new wind chime at the gift shop. Once Scott is done painting the house I'll hang it up.
Started cooking dinner while we watched Star Wars The Clone Wars the movie.
Thomas came over and we ate dinner - roast pork with carrots & onions, green beans, butter-sauteed mushrooms & onions with sour cream, and jumbleberry crunch pie for dessert.
After dinner we all went for an hour-long cruise in the 65 Caddy.
Put all the dishes in the dishwasher, cut up the veal liver I got at The Market (Claudia is big on liver lately so I'm going to give it a try with my crew), bagged up the frozen chicken for the dog, and started rendering the fat from the roast.
And here I am. Forgot to start the laundry and everyone has gone to bed so I can't get the dirty clothes out of the bedrooms. I'll have to do it first thing in the morning before the new online science class starts.
