It's the day before Easter Sunday and I ate all the Easter candy, including 24 small chocolate covered marshmallow eggs, and a bag of fruity jelly beans.
I went to the corner mini mart this afternoon to avoid going into town and bought a bag of small Hersheys bars for the kiddies tomorrow and a bag of fruity jelly beans, the good ones. The Hershey bars are almost gone already - I knew I shouldn't have opened them. I only had one but fed them to the grandkids who were helping R work in the yard. They did a super job and I owe them more than a candy bar. I did give them lunch as well. So, now, what to do for candy tomorrow when the kiddies come?
I hope Susan makes a WalMart run this evening. I can usually count on her.
I'm wondering what your favorite candy is for a holiday or just for every day.
My blogging buddy from the farm, Gail, said she loves malted milk balls. I do too.
I'm trying to find a candy I do not love just to stock and have in the house when we have the kids over. So far everything currently being made is my very most favorite.
I've been on a writing hiatus since getting two entries in for the WV writers contest Mar. 31. I love the feeling that comes after being so productive.
I've been shopping, cooking, cleaning for tomorrow when we'll have dinner for the family. Yesterday, I actually helped with pulling weeds, my least favorite thing in the world to do. AND I cleaned the grill until it looks like a new one. I had grease from head to toe. Insane? Probably. I doubt anyone will see that since we aren't grilling, or know or care that the yard is spruced, or that I cleaned all the floors and dusted the furniture - most of it anyway. The pieces visible.
That's the fun of having people over. When they ask what you've been doing you can always say, "Nothing." Then, "Right."
That's it. Just want to report that R and I are working our way through the FRIENDS episodes. Seasons 1-10. WE are now on nine. Season eight was a hoot for some reason, funnier than most. Last winter we worked our way through the series, The Gilmore Girls. If you haven't watched that series you must. It's heartwarming. I was sad when we watched the last episode. It's full of interesting characters for those of you who create characters and the town itself is a wonderful character.
