Happy (Belated) Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! How did you spend the holiday? We spent a quiet day, just the two of us, beginning with reading the Easter story and brunch: polenta squares with spinach and bacon, coffee, and mimosas.
That afternoon we dyed Easter eggs and watched Charlton Heston in "The Ten Commandments". I learned that as fun as "glitter eggs" are, we will never do them with children. I think we'll be finding glitter in our kitchen for months!
And we finished the day with a fabulous Easter dinner of pickled shrimp, marinated asparagus, wild rice, and lemon rosemary roasted chicken with rose wine. It was such a happy spring day to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!
Today is Marathon Monday in Boston and Patriots' Day, a state holiday. It's hard to believe that a year has already passed since the events of last year's marathon.  I'm thankful that this year finds us safe and ever Boston Strong.
"He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay." Matthew 28:6
