I'm getting this done today because I know I'll never get it done tomorrow. Today I'm dying eggs and I actually read the directions on the dye box and found out that I've been doing it wrong for years. You're supposed to dye warm eggs not cold ones, so mine are out on the kitchen counter attempting to get warm. It also said to let the dye tablet dissolve completely before adding vinegar and to only put the vinegar in the blue and green dye, not the red, orange or yellow---who knew! About the only thing I've been doing right is that I use warm water not cold to dye them.
I was out in the garden attempting to plant things this morning, but mainly doing damage to myself. While cleaning out a spot for my Impatients I was attacked by an Asparagus Fern, had to clean it out with alcohol and cover with a bandage and go find my gardening gloves. Who knew they could be so spiky, they look gentle enough, But I got the Impatients in.
Mac put the Chrysanthemums in and then we heard our neighbor calling his dogs, he has big ones, and as they were running loose we went to go get Miss Kitty off the back deck. I held onto the railing going up the stairs, as one should, and ran a splinter into my other hand. Gardening was definitely done for the day.
I'll leave you with some pictures of what Easter looks like around here.
