I found more pictures!
These are the Easter eggs we dyed. We used purple cabbage, red onions, yellow onions, and beets. (In the picture, from front to back: cabbage, beets, red onion, yellow onion.) I put a piece of white muslin in the dye with the eggs just to see what would happen, and someday I’ll dye some fabric this way. The fabric that was in the cabbage dye looks lavender, but it turned more blue later. It has a iridescent, two-tone look. I love these colors! The eggs sat in the dye in the fridge for about four days. Then Myka helped me shell them and we made deviled eggs. Then I ate at least six deviled eggs a day, probably more. I really like them, and they needed to be eaten anyway.
We invited some people over for dinner on March 15th, the Ides of March. So we jokingly said it was toga party. Myka and Emery wore togas….for three minutes because they hated them and wanted them off. Now. I’m not sure if Myka is laughing or crying in this picture. I’m guessing laughing, but I’m sure she was unhappy soon after this picture was taken.
Family time at the pool makes me happy! Just the short walk there is exciting: Emery wanting to walk, tossing items out of the wagon, Myka excitedly going the wrong direction. Haha! There was laughter, there were tears, and we love it. That one picture of my feet – that’s about all of me that got in the water. It’s still quite chilly, hence the wrapped up Myka warming herself beside the pool. Not to worry; I’m sure it will be all too toasty soon. I’m told the water gets too hot to swim in during the summer. When that happens I think we’ll all just stay inside. Can it be called hibernation if it’s summer and hot out?
