Happy Easter

I was determined to make today a lovely Easter. Even if it meant staying up way too late and working a bit harder then my body really wanted to me. And, at least, I succeeded!

I straightened the whole house last night, made decorated rice-krispie treat eggs, got our London Broil marinating, and made a batch of sugar cookie dough (completely by hand since my egg beater gave up the ghost - what's with me a egg beater deaths?).

I then laid out Geoff's easter trail. It turned out pretty fun, even if there wasn't anything on the trail that was a particular surprise. We woke up and collected our items from our trails and then I made a delicious Easter breakfast of Bacon Egg Cups. I'm not sure I've heard Geoff 'mmmm' that much over breakfast in a very long time!

After the first session of Conference, I showered and got looking decent and decorated my sugar cookies. As usual, I forgot a vital detail when shopping for my ingredients - so I only had two colors of frosting - yellow and orange. This was a pretty big handicap when it came to decorating. I did have some white melting chocolate that I used to pipe the cookies (this was my very first attempt at piping - I've got some learning to do). They are bright and happy and delicious and will be coming with me to work tomorrow for my co-workers who I feel like I haven't seen in ages. It'll be good to be back to work!

Geoff and I and the dogs went on a lovely picnic down by the river. The dogs had a blast and even though it was a little chilly, I'm so glad we went and did it. We followed up the picnic with a short bikeride - which felt great in the slightly damp weather.

Anyway, I think I'm going to try to drift off to dreamland soon so I can get up for day one at the gym and feel rested and ready to get back to work. Happy Easter!
