Easter Weekend

Easter weekend begins tomorrow and it is supposed to be a partly sunny day.  Easter Sunday is supposed to be raining.  That means any grand kid coming here will have to hunt Easter Eggs inside this year.  Seems like so many of the near past Easters have been cold and snowy or rainy.  I can't remember when the last Easter was that the little ones could hunt outside for their eggs.

I don't even know if any of the kids are coming to bring the grand kids over.  I asked, but haven't heard back from anyone.  We've been invited to Bumpa's aunt and my friends home for dinner, but I hate to accept in case the kids do bring the grands over.  I tried to see what Amber is doing, but haven't heard from her either.

It's really a yucky day today.  Gray and gloomy and a fine mist just enough to make it feel really cold.  Bumpa has slept almost all day so far.  I'm waiting for him to wake up so I can see what he would like to eat for supper.  It is already 6PM and I hate to cook too much later than this.  I absolutely detest cleaning a mess up late in the evening.

Bumpa and our oldest son, Brian, have been out Turkey hunting most of this week.  They didn't go today because Brian wasn't feeling good.  But I believe they are all supposed to go tomorrow when the weather is nicer.  Even Doug is planning on joining them I think!

Perhaps we will have a fresh Turkey for Easter!

Well, Spring has finally arrived here in Michigan.  Yes, today and this weekend are supposed to be cold and rainy, it is still spring.  We had three nice days in a row and our weather is unpredictable due to the Lake effect air currents and wind either from the north or west.  Still, it is much better than snow!

As I sit here looking out the window in the computer room/office, I can see the trees whipping around as if they can't figure out which way the wind is blowing from.  And the clouds in the sky resemble snow clouds much more than they resemble the spring thunderstorms we usually get.  I'm not complaining about not having any thunderstorms as oldest dog, Prancer, is afraid of them....I just want the warm weather that goes along with the thunderstorms!  I wonder if Spring will ever show up, or is Mother Nature just going to tease us with a nice day or two and revolve back to winter without spring, summer and fall between!
