Happy Easter my friend! Every holiday my daughter gets to pick a cake, or pastry that we bake together. This Easter she picked carrot cake. Would you like to try some, to go with your coffee? Or tea? If I may say so, it is very delicious! I believe that carrot cake is one of my personal favourites. This one have a little tangy taste of orange as well, that makes it not too sweet.
How are you doing? How are things in your part of the world? I am still working. The schools are open. We are practicing social distancing in our social life. We are urged to stay at home this Easter, not to travel anywhere, not even within the country. We are following every direction we get, and enjoy time at home. (Wishing our neighbours were further away since some of them choose to have overnight guests, who knows from where?)
The Easter bunny left eggs, and we had an egg hunt in the house. One of my colleagues helped the Easter bunny write a letter to my daughter, she was thrilled!
I changed all the curtains in the windows to light spring/summer curtains that invites a lot of light in. All our vegetable seedlings loves it! The tomato seedlings are tomato plants now. They are really thriving. I had to pick some of the leaves of the zucchini plants, because they had been against the cold window and had some frost damage (they are very sensitive to cold.) I’m sure they will come back, as the plant is very strong and healthy. I planted beans and celery last weekend. The celery I cannot see yet, but the beans are growing wildly! All the plants will remain indoors for a while longer, we still have freezing temperatures at night. I am longing to purchase a place of my own (further away from neighbours) to plant a really big garden, with berry bushes, fruit trees and a green house, but that is still a few years into the future. For now I am utilising what is available with a happy heart. This is a very beautiful spot, even though it is too crowded for my taste. We do like it a lot here.
Do you have a garden this year? This weekend I will have more time for blogging, I look forward to that! It is a 4 day weekend here, starting yesterday (Friday,) until Monday. I work again Tuesday. Oooo, I almost forgot, one of my little sisters gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Thursday. It was her first child. My other sister and I sent her a little gift for her boy a couple weeks ago. (We knew it was going to be a boy.) We all live in different parts of the country, and considering the virus it is likely going to be a while before we can meet in real life. All in all, life is good. We have everything we need, including lots of time to read books, which is something we’ve been doing a lot of! Tell me what’s going on in your life ❤
