easter eats

Auntia expects creamed eggs on toast every easter sunday ... she even went outside to the garden leftovers and brought in some chives that were stretching toward the sun...
isn't that the cutest easter plate EVER?!?

i can count on one hand the number of eggs that i have intentionally eaten since last september and THAT was one of them ... i miss eating eggs!!!

every time i pick up a book to read 
or decide which movie to go see
 i am ever so grateful that i don't much care what anyone else thinks about what i decide to spend my time on...
 i enjoyed each one of these books - and it is totally okay with me that they will never be Classic Works of Great Literature
teen-aged angst in a dystopian environment and Steve Rogers - what's not to love?!?

none of these were a waste of time ... and a couple of them actually made me think!!!
