Spring weekend -- winter memories

Winter Memories

Happy whatever you are celebrating this weekend.
I am not religious, but my children (grown up) love
the Easter egg hunt.  So much so that our married
son Christopher and his wife Megan, will visit on
 Sunday for the egg hunt at lunch time, and again for
the ritual turkey dinner in the evening.

Every year I think maybe this year they won't want it,
but who am I kidding, it's one of the funniest days
of the year.  We hide pounds of chocolate around the
house and Christopher, Sam and Megan gather all of
it in baskets.  Lately Megan has been finding the most
chocolate, which is fair because she loves it
more than anyone.

Today I'm painting and I wish everyone a wonderful
long weekend whatever you're doing on this
lovely spring day.

Here's a little iPad drawing of a beautiful house near
my brother's house down a country lane in Chelsea,
Quebec.  I'm sure the last time I drew it there were
far fewer trees.  It's starting to look like the magic
princess will have to find her way through the forest
to save the prince.  I think my brother lives in a
paradise, and actually so do his neighbours in the
yellow house.  The snow is melting in the countryside
around Toronto, and is all but gone in the city.  It
was very beautiful this winter in Quebec.

Have a happy-spring-weekend.

Happy Easter to all of you, too, Barbara! And lots of fun with the egg hunting - wish I could be there as well!

Hi Liza,
Oh now that would be so much fun!!!
The hunt is starting so late today, that we may have to put the turkey in the oven for dinner before the hunt begins.

Happy Easter to you and to your family.

XOXO Barbara
