We were fortunate to have a full table for the family Easter dinner at home this afternoon. We had ham from Alpine Butcher, small red potatoes, green beans, and pineapple on the side. For dessert there was an apple pie and vanilla ice cream, plus assorted homemade cookies and a box of fancy chocolates. Everything began with a champagne toast. I hope our readers enjoyed their day. Sometimes you have to tune out the news for a few hours and be happy about what you’ve got. This was the first morning that we had windows open all over the house. I opened up the upstairs back porch and re-established our cat’s living quarters there. It feels like we’ve turned the seasonal page.
