A Little of This and a Little of That—Sunday, April 5, 2015

Over-PlateauThe eclipse was really cool to watch the other night.  Because we are way out in the country, and we live down a country lane, we don’t sleep with our curtains or drapes pulled. On full moon nights the moon beams stream into the bedroom right onto the bed and in my eyes.  Therefore, I was awake and ready to watch the Super Moon be eclipsed.

The eclipsed started close to five in the morning…turning a dull brick red around six or so.  We never had a full eclipse because the sun started coming up before the moon could be completely covered.

That’s okay…I enjoyed watching every minute of what we had anyway.

Easter-EggsThe kids got all their Easter eggs dyed  ready for the big hunt today.  It was fun having an egg dyeing party once more in my kitchen.  It’s been a long time since the last time eggs were dyed here. 🙂

PearWe’ve had several nights of freezing weather—I’m sure the apricots are gone, and now the pears.  The plums, sour cherries and the apples just might make it this year, but only time will tell.  Still the blooms on the pear trees are pretty.

Easter MornEaster morning is beautiful.  Today is our last day with the kids, they will go back to Craig, Colorado, late this afternoon.  But first we (all of our daughters and son-in-laws and grandchildren and even Jason’s Dad) are all going to the Uncompahgre Plateau for an Easter Picnic.

I am wishing for each of you a marvelous and wonderful day today!

Happy Easter my Friends!

  1. Great to learn that the family gathering over this Easter was a great success and that the weather was co-operative – that is a bonus. Not so fortunate on the Pacific side of Australia,
    but Sunday the sun did shine for the beach-goers around northern NSW and Qld – so a great sun and surf day. Today (Monday 6th) – the final day of the holiday period has started off with lovely clear blue skies – perfect for the holidayers. This afternoon the roads will be clogged with them all returning home and the police are out in force for the agitated and impatient people. More road fatalities this year so far than previous years – I guess patience is no longer a virtue!
    The eclipse was not seen here in most cases due to the cloud cover – it happened about 10.00 pm.
    Have fun up for the picnic on the Uncompahgre.


  2. The Blood Moon! I woke up just before 5am to see it, stayed up for about 15 minutes, then went back to bed. You must have had an amazing view!


  3. I don’t think trhat we would have seen the blood moon as it was so cloudy here that nothing shone through….Its good to see the Grandkids and I am sure that you all had a great time


  4. I hope your picnic was super. Sorry you had to say goodbye to those wonderful grands. Love your photo of the sun on the horizon in your header and the moon shot. Gentle spring rain here today.


  5. One day I’ll dye eggs with grandkids. My kids haven’t done it in years, plus they don’t like hardboiled eggs. I remember the fun of the ‘secret’ names on the eggs with white crayon when they weren’t looking. I’d write their names on the eggs before they dyed them and then watched as they discovered “their” eggs. ❤
