My Easter basket sits to the left of my desk, pink "grass" rising up above the candy. I like to bury my candy beneath the "grass", because I think it's fun to "find" it later.
The day was fun, fairly mellow. We went down to my mother's in the afternoon. When we arrived, a handful of them were playing hackey sac outside (I would have joined in, had I not been wearing heels).
Dinner -- Chicken cutlet parmigiana and lasagna. Dessert -- apple pie from Julian. Our visiting family has been keeping busy! It's Monday, which means I'm working hard, with a few piano breaks here and there. One has to keep sane, you know.
Last night we watched the original Around the World in 80 Days (best picture of 1956). My favorite thing about the movie? AMAZING dialogue. It reminded me of P.G. Wodehouse, though Jules Verne came earlier. Fabulous diction, excellent vocabulary, I'm inspired to add "propitious" and "persiflage" into my daily rhetoric. There's something to be said for the old English Gentlemen, I love the way they communicated. Poetic.
Without further ado, here's a pic of me with my sister Jenny (I dressed in pastel for the holiday).
