Easter 2020


Yes, today was a much different Easter than what we have ever celebrated before.  Since there would be no church we decided to have Easter Breakfast late morning after we came home from private communion.  The girls and I had the table set and the food ready for the oven.  We used the time back for the first time and timed everything perfect as we arrived home as the oven was turning off.  It was nice to have a family breakfast, something that we don’t normally do.


Bacon, sausage, coffee cake, and for two people scrambled eggs.

Kristen had to go to work for 3 hours today.  So we planned on having our Easter Dinner later today instead of around 12:30 after church like we normally do.  I must say, I really loved having time to make the meal and not feeling rushed.  I just might talk the family into moving our traditional Easter Dinner at 12:30 to 4:30 permanently.

Honey Ham, Party Potatoes, Sweet and Sour Green Beans, Fruit Salad and a roll.  Yummy.

On a side note, this has been a clumsy week for me.  The other day, I fell out of bed. Don’t ask me how it just kind of happened because I was trying to do something that would have been easier if I would have sat up and taken care of it.  Then this morning, I woke up to use the bathroom, figured I would need to get up again so I decided to head to the living room to sleep for a bit so I didn’t disturb my husband.  Needless to say, I ran into a box that was where it didn’t belong and somehow ended up pulling a muscle.  Ouch, I never realized how much I use that particular muscle.  It hurts to move, to stand, to lay down, to sit on the commode, and several other things.  So embarrassing, but my girls have really enjoyed laughing at me about it.

Tomorrow begins online teaching and learning for us.

  1. I’m so glad you are still writing! I loved the photos of this Easter. You mentioned maybe moving this slower pace into future plans. I’m beginning to think I LIKE the COVID pace…It might change my life for the better. Take care, friend.

  2. Our dinner was done via Google Hangout with one daughter in Ames and one daughter and her boyfriend in Iowa City. The challenge, make something from food in your kitchen and try something new. My wife made Crockpot Sesame Chicken, one daughter shrimp scampi, the other the smallest spiral ham we’d ever seen! We laughed and ate and just enjoyed seeing each other because it’s been over a month now.

    Your dinner looks delicious! I missed traditional ham, but during a time like this, new is good too!

    Tomorrow, I get my sourdough starter started, between emails from students I’m sure! 🙂
