Easter Weekend

On Wednesday, I came home to find that David had gotten up early and done all the mulching in our backyard! This year required 6 cubic yards, which was 3 loads in the small trailer. He'd already spread it all out when I got home, so I didn't have to do a thing. I'm a bit spoiled, but very appreciative! The cedar smells so good! Saturday was the first day for this year's Farmer's Market. The weather was much better than last year when it snowed. Christina and I met there and then went to Spring Creek Tea Room in Ozark for her birthday. The tea room is part of an antique store, so after lunch we browsed a little. I had no intentions of buying anything, but I found an irresistible cheap bench, an ironstone platter, and a scrap of the prettiest quilt.
Sorry - another picture of the rotund brown cat. She loves a warm sunny spot, and I can't resist taking pictures of her furry and sizable tummy.

Saturday evening, we went to Jim and Patty's for a delicious supper. Patty was kind enough to share her hostas and I came home with several bags of new friends to plant. They're so pretty!
Sunday morning, I was very surprised to find that David had left me an Easter surprise. This bunny was part of it. He sings and dances and drives Gracie mad. It's really fun to watch. When I found my surprise I will have to admit that my eyes got just a little damp thinking about what a lucky girl I am to have married such a thoughtful man. Thank you David! You were missed at our Easter celebration today.

I went to Monett today to celebrate Easter with my Mom and Dad and Grandmother. We had a great time and ate way too much. Lunch was scrumptious! My mom made these cute bird's nest treats - I'm still too full to eat mine! I'll post the recipe over at the Fremont Kitchen blog in the next few days.
How was your Easter?

Happy Easter to you! Your hubby sounds like a sweet guy!

That Easter treat? YUM. My mom makes haystacks at Christmas and if I'd let myself I could sit and eat an entire tin ful of those suckers.
