|Great Grandmother's china, Easter last year|
With the rising cost of food, I'd like to extend our garden this year. I wanted to serve asparagus for Easter dinner but it was just too expensive (the sale price was $2.99 a pound).
Speaking of Easter... we had a very nice time with Miss M. joining us this year. I thought we were going to be alone but the two young people changed their plans, having an afternoon holiday meal with us instead of traveling with her parents. Christopher had to go back to campus and study Sunday night.
The table looked lovely with Great Grandmother's china and my Noritake smoked goblets which actually match my wedding china. The traditional Easter meal was served that I've made for years and Miss M. brought a green bean casserole (which is one of hubby's childhood favorites).
A very generous friend shared her extra memory card with me (and a couple other goodies for the kitchen!) so the camera was available... but I FORGOT to take pictures until the table had been cleared.
I blame it on sleep deprivation, I've been staying up late and/or getting a call around 3:00 to 4:00 in the morning when Christopher is starting home from campus. He has firm instructions to call us if he is very sleepy when driving. Since he plans to share an apartment with two of his best friends next school year, I may not have the "joy" of finals weeks again. Stephanie had many late nights at the end of semesters, too!
An update on my computer bugs... it appears they have all left the laptop and I had no trouble starting the computer this morning. When I told Christopher about the screen which appeared when I started the computer, he (being a computer type person) was very concerned the bugs had damaged the hard drive... so you can imagine my relief when that Windows insignia appeared.
War has been declared once again with the ants!
