This Easter Weekend finds me alone without my home family for the first time in my life.
Daughter is in Mexico, and husband and son are camping. Tall house guest is away too.
(I'll explain about tall house guest in another post).
I had to go to the post office, and there, beside it was the grocery store. Beckoning to me with it's quarter-eating buggies, muzak, and the heady sound of checkout beeps. Hmmm......maybe I'll get myself a treat......
Emerged an hour later and $247.00 lighter with a number of items. Among them:
Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale (sweet nectar of goodness and bubbles - half gone because I couldn't help myself).
Marinated Artichoke hearts. I love these and they love me back because they are HEARTS! They, too, are half gone because I made myself a pasta dish for supper. Drool. I heart hearts.
Maple Fudge. I love you Maple Fudge. You are all for me and I am all for you. Like Tom and Renee: We complete each other. I am perfect except for lack of fudge, and fudge is perfect except for lack of me.
Later tonight, when the blinds are drawn, the fireplace hissing romantically, the lights down low.....the two shall become one. The fudge and I will join together and let no one tear us asunder. Oh, fudgie baby!
(Did you notice the expiry date on the fudge? July? This fudge will not even get to see tomorrow, never mind July!)
Ahem! Before the fudge and I go on our mutual voyage of self discovery later this evening, I am first having my parents over for one more thing I bought:
Easter Cake !
Excuse the misty plastic covering. It was in the fridge.
After mom and dad leave, then the fudge and I will ..... Set the Night on Fire!
Being alone for Easter is a lot easier than I thought it would be.
Happy Easter weekend everyone!
