Easter … ish

We’re three days into the long Easter weekend.

In the past when I’ve posted around Easter time I’ve added pics from the village of tableaus – eggs, chicks, bunnies, baskets.

This year, except for Saturday it’s been either wet (which it’s been for several weeks now) or just grey and meh. Not conducive to tableaus and not terribly exciting.

Plus, we moved to British Summer Time Saturday into Sunday morning. So, I’m seriously time perplexed. Will take a couple of days to feel ‘normal’ again.

I don’t have anything Eastery to talk and I don’t have a specific Easter perfume. I’ve been wearing the same fragrance for the past week as I’m going to post about it next Monday. So, see, I can’t tell you about it yet.

In any case, if you celebrate the holiday, I hope it’s been nice. Perhaps tell us what you do for Easter, what perfume you’re wearing, and which Easter foods you love (are you a chocolate egg fiend, into hot cross buns, devour bunnies head first?).

    I was kind of melancholy for me tbh… we made such a big production of the kid baskets, and the Easter Bunny came until I moved out here (i.e., into their young adulthood.) I really enjoyed all of that, and now that I don’t “have” to do it I miss it a bit. Slowly chipping away on my move (got access to the new place on Friday.)

      Good wishes on the move. I miss setting up Easter egg hunts. When I lived in a house in London set on communal lawns we did this annually. It was such pleasure to watch the kids.

    We had our young adult kids over for Easter dinner last night. Had a really nice meal. I sang with my small choir in a special Good Friday service and again on Easter morning. Now it’s time to put the Easter baskets and plush bunnies away for another year. Our weather is also rainy today, but at least it was pretty yesterday.

    Well we have had rainy weekends these past couple and this was no exception. We did have the sun sort of peep out for a few hours so I went for a drive to my favorite spot- a side street off Coldwater Canyon where on sunny days after a rain you’ll get a view all the way to Catalina. Didn’t see quite that far today. But it was in my new (to me anyway) car that is part of my post on Wednesday. For scent I decided to grab Jicky, which was perfect on this slightly chilly day. Then beat the rain back to the apartment to finish off the ham and pineapple pizza I got. (hey. it’s Easter) and I will open the Cadbury Creme Egg I got at the gas station on Santa Monica Blvd, which oddly has a great selection of Brit candy, like flake bars, et al.

      New car? I think Cadbury is now owned by an American company … but I may be wrong. Every times you write about LA it makes me think of Robert Crais’ Cole & Pike series, which is set there. Next book is out this summer. Looking forward to that.

    Hey Cinnamon,
    We are not a very religious household but I did get the players at Trivia last night to do an Easter Bonnet Parade. That was fun.
    Weather has been so gorgeous. Frosty mornings and sunshiny days.
    Jin and I have been fairly low key but have seen a couple of friends.
    I demolished a pack of Speckled Egg Peanut M&Ms in one sitting and have had a few of this little solid milk chocolate eggs. My BFF gave me a couple of Gooey Caramel Centered Eggs from her hoard. So much more than I should with my diabetes but also much less than I could.

      And Easter Bonnet parade: did people dance? Sigh . Caramel anything makes me go ooooh. However, I am still perplexed, after many years, by how we ended up with so much salted caramel.

      • Portia says:

        HA! No dancing. I had them sashay around in a circle. The girl who had gone to the most effort won, it was fun and silly.
        Caramel was ALWAYS salted, they just started saying it a decade or two ago. It’s the salt that makes it ZING!

    Oops I love a Cadbury’s Crème Egg but haven’t indulged today

    We had a sunny day yesterday. We went to see the eldest & his fiancée to introduce Mr Jarvis to his nieces. It didn’t go particularly well. One of the girls settled down with him but the other is reactive from fear & barked none stop. They’re Romanian rescue sisters. Mr Jarvis coped very well & ignored them. It’s his gotcha day tomorrow so I’ll take him to a park & cafe to share a yummy sausage roll as DH is working.
    Been wearing Boujee Bougies Verdant today thinking it would be sunny again. In today’s overcast mist Verdant is grey/green to match the weather. On sunny days it sings in every shade of fleshy leaf

    • cinnamon says:

      Ah, dogs. Things get so complex. I have 3 of the old style Boujee Bougie small candles. It takes a bit of burning but once they get going good throw. There is something so more-ish about cream eggs. Maybe the goo inside …

    I’m a chocolate Cadbury mini egg and hot cross bun person, been indulging all week. ? Still very cold and windy with more snow coming later this week, but I see green shoots coming up.
