Easter Monday

Easter at Di & Al's

Great day yesterday, hope yours was too. The hound and I took a very peaceful walk at the Phillips Exeter trails in the morning (more on that tomorrow).  Then midday, Gar and headed over to Di and Al's for the annual Easter celebration. 

Memere and Sylivie came down from Canada (4 hours), and the Robinson gang from Jefferson (3 hours), nephew Joe home from college (2 hours) and all of us local yokels made for a full house.

The weather didn't quite cooperate, but there wasn't any rain. It was a bit chilly though.  It didn't stop the kids from playing outside and Garrett teaching Cayden a new football touchdown dance. Nephew Pat pulled his niece Sophia around and around and around in the wagon. She went in circles most of the day. (Funny, how most of my nephews on this side of the Atlantic are now Uncles.)

A good day had by one and all....

My poor parents were taunted and taunted by the Red Sox, who ended up blowing it in the 11th. Ah well, at least it's only the beginning of the season. Our Yankees didn't fare much better.

As Gar and I drove home, I said 'Look at the pretty glow of the sunset.' It was a very muted yellow. That didn't last long.

Sunset Meadows

It was quite a long sunset last night, and it was the first time the sun had really shown its face all day. It was worth the wait. The two of us were on the couch and I said to Gar, looking at the color streaming in from the window, 'Did that sunset just completely change?'. He stretched his neck to look and said, WOW! Out I went with the camera again.  Wish you'd all been able to see this one. Truly spectacular.

Mellow yellow..............

Sun going down.............

All of a sudden, sky on fire.........

I stood there in awe, snapping away...........

This one reminds me of the scene with Scarlett in Gone With the Wind...."As God is my witness, as God is my witness they're not going to lick me. I'm going to live through this and when it's all over, I'll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again."

What an beautiful end to Easter. Quite a show.

Peace out,
