There are so many ways to describe the joy that comes with Easter.
None of the following pictures will capture the joys, exactly but they do offer hints.

    I hope you had a lovely Easter! I had somewhat of a magical long weekend. I’m not quite ready to let the weekend go just yet.

    • oh says:

      Mandy! Hope you were able to slide back into the week, following your lovely holiday. Doesn’t Easter happen at the perfect time of year?

  • ds says:

    Ahhhh…Hope it was a good one!

    • oh says:

      Dear DS,
      What a great long weekend. Always glad when there’s an “extra” day in the week. I tried to squeeze in some reading, but ah, well, it was a sunny gorgeous day with lots of family around. So tonight? I crack open a delicious book!

  • anno says:

    It looks like are ready for Spring! Hope you enjoyed a wonderful day — Happy Easter!

  • jeanie says:

    I’m liking Easter in Oh-Land! Egg salad or deviled?

    • oh says:

      Jeanie, you are not going to believe this but I have 3 dozen eggs ready to be dyed or whipped into salad. So, I had to laugh – salad or deviled? Neither, not just yet.

  • Carrie says:

    Looks like it was lovely!

    • oh says:

      Carrie! How lucky to have a beautiful day and we snapped pictures like crazy. I have also decided it’s high time (and excuse) for a new tablecloth. What is it about linens that’s so compelling?

  • qugrainne says:

    Spring has sprung in St. Louis. We are working on it here. The table setting looks delightful – with whopping big wine glasses! Did you make lamb?

    • oh says:

      Q, Thanks for your lovely comments – No, I didn’t make lamb but went for a brunch approach and ended up with nearly a dozen different dishes! Egads, we’re still feasting off leftovers. Somehow, I got into the kitchen early on Sunday morning and had the best time.
      But how the time flew!
      Did you get any of those darling stuffed animal bunnies and ducks for that g-baby?

  • shoreacres says:

    So curious – it looks as though only one of those eggs is peeled! Was someone in the middle of her project when she thought, “Camera!”?

    Lovely table, too, but best of all is the pup 😉

    • oh says:

      Dear Shore – It DOES look like one is peeled, but it’s not…just damp from a bit of a wash. And as noted above to Jeanie, we haven’t done a thing with them yet – they’re in the fridge waiting to be “salad-ed” or “deviled.” Or, still, maybe dyed – if the family is able to light for a few minutes to play!
      I have told the pup (almost 16) that you mentioned him and he has given me his coolest dapper look, a single wag and sauntered into the foyer to lie on the rug and stare out the glass doors! Funny little fellow, he is. Gotta love him.

  • CLo says:

    Huck knows how to live.

    • oh says:

      He might have his eyes closed but his nose is always “open.” He did well on Sunday, enjoying some very particular snacks.

  • Jeannine says:

    I love your Easter posts, oh. The pics above offer me a glimpse of what seems to be such a romantic life. . .

  • oh says:

    Jeanine! Thank you for your lovely comments. It is very sweet here in the middle of the country. Yet I am always fascinated by your country…we need to be wishing you a happy autumn/winter now,right?

  • Ruth says:

    I feel the simple, the quiet, the holiday sense, something special is going on. You know I just thought of something. It used to be that holidays with family felt more hectic than regular life. Now I wonder if they aren’t less so, and a time to really do something different: spend face time together over a meal. Has it always felt like that? Or do I just feel like that from your photos?

    (I think I am being incoherent. It was a long day at work!)

    • oh says:

      Ruth! You make perfect sense. It’s great to rediscover the intrinsic joy of taking it easy with people we love at times of celebration. In fact, we moved from kitchen table where everyone pitched in to help with some dinner aspect to dining table once the meal was ready and brought to table and then outdoors to patio table for coffee and conversation and enjoying the spring air. And you’re right: the theme here is: the table!
      Hmmm… wonder if I have the wisdom to approach Christmas with the same sense of relaxation?
