Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

I came back home yesterday. Had a wonderful time with my family... sons, grand kids, nephews and cousins. Sis and I decorated the table, cleaned the house and decided that I should always come down a day early on every holiday so we can do this together. It was much easier for my sister and it was fun to do it together.
Lafayette is big on walking and biking.... with dogs, so we met quite a few dogs, and their people, on our hike.
This walk was a beautiful beginning to the Easter Weekend.
In the afternoon Sis and I took a Lily to Mom....
Later we decorated and got the house in order for Sunday dinner. We set the "children's" table. Sis used my felted soaps for decoration. They made the whole room smell good.
We had a wonderful ham dinner, great vegetables, salad and potatoes. We finished with an angel food cake covered in pineapple whipped cream frosting with orange rind in it and sweetened strawberries on top (One of mom's old recipes) and, of course, some extra orange rind on top. My daughter in law made chocolate covered strawberries that were the biggest strawberries we had every seen. Delicious!!
I wish we lived closer. I miss their sweet little smiles...
Maybe the goats could learn to live in a suburban backyard.
No, probably not. I'm not sure that the Prospector and I could return to civilization. Not yet, anyway.
For now... I will drive down there to them, so I can see my little beans as much as possible.
Love ya, little cowpokes. See ya soon.....
Lily, the shorthair, says.... "Fozzy! Lets go look for Easter candy and leftovers .FOZZY! Where are you?"
Fozzy was curled up on the sofa sleeping. It was a long day and he was tired.
I hope everyone had a happy Easter.
