Happy Easter everybody! Today we will be working around the house a bit! The kiddo’s got some chocolates, and since we didn’t go get a kaboodle of eggs to dye, that will have to wait. I’ll still boil a few of the ones we have though, because what’s Easter without some deviled eggs! I cheat and make mine with creamy Italian dressing, instead of sitting there mixing and tasting and taking the time to dice up all the things people put in theirs. I remember one time when I worked in the kitchen of the health care place, and I was actually in charge of “cooking” lunch, and they gave me egg salad sandwiches, and I actually made it with half creamy Italian dressing, and half mayo, and the nurses took all the plates to the floor (217 beds), and every single one of them came back clean!!! Not one person in the whole facility didn’t not eat that day! And several asked for seconds! 😀
So after eggs, we’re going to put together a set of bunk beds that we have for the boys. Got them about four months ago, and they have just been sitting here. One of those boxes that has gotten pushed aaaaaall over the front room, and then eventually under my dining room table. Makes a great foot rest apparently. And then, if anything, we will be taking a lot of the empty boxes out of the living room, and storing them in what I call the chicken house, out back. This house came with a detached garage (which is in horrible shape), and then at the back of the property someone took the time to build a very very nice outbuilding that is partly stucco-ed, so there is chicken wire type mesh on it, so I call it the chicken house, so everyone knows the difference between that, and the garage. 😛 Sure I could call it the shed, or the out building… but it looks like a chicken house. Just needs one of those chicken gang planks, and some roosting boxes, and a boodle of raccoon/prairie dog/rodent protection, and some heat lamps, and it could totally be a chicken house! Or some insulation, some walls, and carpet, and it could be a little 10×15 ft guest house (full of boxes). 😛
Anyway, off to knit for a bit! The town is having an Easter Egg hunt later today, after everyone gets out of church. The sign said 10 and under, so that lets out all of my kiddo’s, except one. 😦 I’m thinking they might only have like five or six kiddo’s in town that are actually that age, so could be fun for a couple of families.
