Just Spring Ramblings

So much has happened since Easter Sunday, it is wearing me down. With the illnesses in our family and the tragedy at Virginia Tech, I find I am becoming obsessed with the news, searching for a reason someone would gun down innocent children. I have decided to step away from the news today and try to find some normalcy in the day.

This is a picture I took of our table Easter Sunday. The banner in the background was a free download from Allsorts blog.

I made the chocolate Corvette for my husband for Easter. He loves Corvettes! And for my son a chocolate guitar! They were surprisingly easy to do. I had only made very small chocolates in molds before and was somewhat intimidated with the larger molds, but I think they turned out pretty good.

Remember the peepers in my pond? Well look what I found this weekend! Gazillions of tadpoles are now happily swimming around! In a few more weeks we'll have tons on frogs jumping around.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. It sent a shiver through me realizing how close you are to VT.

I did enjoy seeing your tadpoles in your pond, I'm going to go do a visual inspection of my own pond to see if there is any signs of little frogs. Such fun.

Oh, and I also noticed that you made Paska. How terrific. I hope you enjoy many more years of Easter Bread.

Great job with the chocolates, they look wonderful.
No sign of little frogs in our pond yet, but we're a little colder up here.

Wow, you have a lot of tadpoles! I remember catching them from creeks when I was little!
