Happy Easter to all!

It has been busy busy busy here! Friday night we had a mini Passover seder with just myself, DH, BIL, and SIL. Saturday, we drove 3 hrs from southern NJ to Lancaster, PA, for the big family seder, hosted by DH's niece and family. And her brother and family. And BIL's daughter and family. And one of their friends and family. Plus DH/BIL's cousins and family. And one of the nieces-in-law's mother. Oh, and the nursing assistant for one of the cousin's wife. Hmmm, plus a dog. It was insane and fun and wonderful to be surrounded by this huge crazy family, retelling family stories, remembering Passovers in the past, and catching up on everyone's lives.

This crew in the photo, ages 4 to 12 or so, made a movie retelling the story of Passover and the exodus from Egypt - on their iPhones and an iPad, and the one boy in the group (the 5th grader) spliced it together. It was hysterical, and I'm so impressed that these young kids, not a teenager among them, and that bright, creative, and industrious to produce something like this! Plus they sold movie tickets and raffle tickets, and made enough money to buy a green screen for their next production!!!

I sure wasn't that much a tekkie when I was a pre-teen, were any of us????

Happy Happy Joy Joy all around!

My quiet Easter with just my dad and my son was very nice. We watched the Cubs game while i cooked. My son was very helpful setting things out for me. I cooked way too much. I try to clean as I cook but it never lasts long. OY I'm a sloppy cook.

I took a walk earlier this morning then again after they went home. Beautiful weather here today.

Happy Birth-day to you Nell! What a big day indeed!

I've always liked that Robin William's quote Toni!

I'm exhausted. Hitting the hay early. Hoping the garage door company calls me early to come out tomorrow to fix the garage door. Good thing I had pulled out of the garage before the door broke!

Healthy and happy wishes for a positive week ahead for all!

Hi team,
As Bess said, blessings on all of you regardless of your faith (or lack thereof).

I printed and put the state taxes in the mail today, and figured out how the underpayment penalty works. We didn't get penalized this year, but next on the to-so list is to make sure we're having enough witheld for 2019 taxes.

I also got in a short outdoor walk, and will pace the house for my remaining steps. Now to do a tiny meditation and practice piano. Have a great day!
Hubby and I will cook at home for dinner, so that will be nice.

Happy Easter and also from me whatever day you are celebrating even if it is just a glorious Sunday.
Dinner went well yesterday so today is a quiet day to relax and just be together.

I did go to the gym this morning so I am a happy girl.

Enjoy your day everyone........

Good morning!

Easter/Spring/Passover, life in general. As Bess wisely said—whatever you celebrate, enjoy the day.

We’ve had a rollercoaster of weather and today is sunny so far. Spring IS such a mix, is it not? But I love Sparkguy’s quote from Robin Williams so I will pass it along in case you have missed it:

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
-- Robin Williams

So party on, my friends! emoticon

Good morning back at you, Maree and thank you for getting this thread started.

Blessings on all of you, no matter what you are celebrating even if it is just another precious day of living. Some "just", eh?

And thank you for being so kind about my odd little stories.

We are having a quiet day at home today but I, for sure, will go out into my Enchanted Forest and give thanks. Da Pwincess will stay home with her very pregnant mother and her sleepyhead daddy. They are Romanian Orthodox and will celebrate next Sunday.

Believe it
Do it
Become it
