HAPPY EASTER ALL Y'ALL!
Easter is a great time of the year in Michigan. I look forward to it every year! Winter is over, it's time to put the heavy coats and gloves away. It's 3 weeks into Spring, and the sun is shining, it's getting warm and it's time to go get the potting soil and get the porch planters out. Put the lawn chairs out on the porch, and find my sunglasses. After all, it's Good Friday!
Wait... What's that outside? Sounds like rain? Let me look outside...
What the heck? It's SNOWING! And then it's HAILING! And then it's RAINING! Then it's SNOWING again! And it's 28 degrees out! Now there's a covering of snow on the ground!
C'mon! It's April 10th and I'm still wearing long underwear and have to look out for ice when I do my daily walk. Where's the Global Warming when you need it? Just sayin...
And just wondering...
According to reliable resources, "Easter, also called Pascha (Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD."
So, how did a bunny become the predominant icon for Easter? What does a bunny have to do with the resurrection? And then, what is the deal with bunnies and eggs? Bunnies are mammals... they don't lay eggs! They have... little bunnies! And they're all hopping down the bunny trail!
But I digress...
Anyway, we were at the Shea house, we're ready for our "Social Distancing" Easter. We bought a dozen eggs, hard boiled them and then decorated them. Then we hid them all over the apartment! As senior citizens, we're relying on our poor memories to make the hunt more exciting. We plan on spending the day searching for the Easter eggs but being good kitty parents, we're going to let Jenny Fur find most of them. (Although she tends to play with the eggs rather than eat them!) But I have dibs on any chocolate bunnies... Hopefully our memory will be good enough that we won't forget where we put that last egg. But if not, it should become apparent in a couple of weeks.
And with that, we're outta here to search for jelly beans, bunnies and Easter eggs.
Hope y'all have a safe and healthy Easter!!
