Easter Ducks

Rainy and cold, yet everything is so green and lovely.......I think I have thought about Ireland so much the past few months that I have somehow brought their weather to Alabama.  I have heard so many complain about our cool rainy spring, but this spring has been the calmest one we have had in years......we're talking calm tornado wise.  I will wear sweaters and jackets until June if that is what it takes to prevent the violent storms that we have had in years past.

As far back as I can remember the Easter season has always brought violent storms.....this year has been different and I am so grateful.

I am sure many of you are getting ready for egg rolls and egg hunts and family gatherings....Easter frocks and baskets and bonnets are waiting for their moment.  Easter has always been a mixed feeling holiday for me.......I liked the baskets, hated the ruffled dresses......I like to dye and decorate eggs, hated to hunt them....Easter was the first time I shaved my legs, there were many band-aids under my first pair of nylons.  I loved the little chicks and ducks that we use to get when were kids.....of course, I understand why that is no longer a custom, I probably single handedly caused that fiasco.  The one Easter that I got a duck was not a happy one.......I thought the duck was thirsty, I stuck his head in a bowl of water, well.......he drowned.

Safe travels to you who are on the road this weekend, enjoy your traditions......and remember, ducks just don't get that thirsty.
Happy Easter

  1. OMGosh, Jilda. That is just a sad/kinda funny story about the duck. I guess that kind of puts a pox on the term "lucky duck". Happy Easter to you- glad your weather is nice this year! xo Diana
