Easter is time of renewal for spring and a holiday for Christians. Other religions also celebrate near the same time.
My Easter Lilies are up about three inches and will not bloom until summer. They don’t have a calendar, I guess. But the yard is greening up. If we weren’t in such a drought, it would do better. It is still cool but in Oklahoma that will come to a blazing halt very quickly.
I talked to my cousin in Texas, and they are having a fish fry—a staple for them at Easter. I heard our dinner might include lamb chops. But that’s not set in stone. I’m not cooking, other than the Deviled Eggs I’ll bring. We’ve been invited to our daughter’s house for dinner. I’m looking forward to seeing family and that is the main reason for being there.
Easter is the beginning of spring and warm weather. It is a time of renewal and plans to do things differently than last year. I’ll have a better lawn and I’ll get more exercise—maybe. I always make plans at New Years and Easter and other beginnings. There’s that unfinished novel or two that I need to get back to work on.
Whatever your plans for Easter and the beginning of warmer weather, I hope your plans include friends and family. Whether you are religious or not, and whether your celebration includes bunnies or crosses, have a good celebration and enjoy the season.
