Today is Easter Sunday – I send out good wishes to everyone this year. It’s our second year in a row that the pandemic has loomed over Easter, and broke up family traditions because of precautions being taken by avoiding get-togethers indoors.
It’s understandable, as no one wants to be responsible for getting someone else sick, especially those who are especially vulnerable as am I since I am on immune suppressant drugs for my kidney transplant. But we all miss those family moments, and we look forward to their return, and believe they will.
Reflecting back on moments – as a youngster my Easter Sunday was brightened by Easter Bunny deposits of jelly beans and chocolate.
The Easter Bunny had always vanished before I awoke, but his trail was visible because of the jelly beans and little treats scattered in the living room. In room corners and under pillows we found the bright coloured jelly beans, and under pillows were little chocolate Easter eggs (in boxes♥).
I also have lasting memories of Easter Eggs of a longer lasting type, and sentimental memories they are. My Ukrainain grandmother (Baba) taught me how to dye and paint eggs with wax. These are the memories you make when you are young and only later in life do you realize how priceless the moments were. How irreplaceable.
I share them here in a past post and such wonderful times they were and that now I appreciate even more.
Thanks for visiting! – David
Keeping with the Easter theme, recently I rediscovered how pleasant it is to slow down and did some colouring with pencil crayons. My masterpiece is below♥
It actually was difficult to not be multi-tasking, or tapping on a keyboard/screen.
After while I concentrated and it felt nice to step back from electronics which seem to dominate daily life.
Driving north from Penticton, there are multiple places to stop along the lake. I didn’t remember the name of this one but the view was spectacular from that spot.
I am glad I took the moment to stop and take some pictures when I was on driving “date” with my wife. Just a rolling date, buy some apples from a fruit orchard, drink coffee and spend time together. What a name for a park! Kickininee Park.
