ephemeral easter eggs

I caught up on the last 2 episodes of Grimm while I was sitting in the recliner and sketching... Oh, that David Giuntoli is such a hottie. Even if he was less handsome (or his eyes were a less sparkly blue) the show would still be fascinating. Sometimes early Sunday mornings are just like that.  Time to relax, enjoy capricious things, but really, just not think about anything and get lost in the moment.

I spent a lot of time taking less than spectacular photos this weekend... meh.
I spent a lot of time cooking last weekend... and then we had ham for 6 days.
Yes, that was Easter dinner. Ham, baked beans, homemade stuffing, wheat rolls, carrot cake, and the most important holiday dish: pink jello salad.
Every year I go out and buy a carton of eggs to boil and dye. I'm not sure why, I just do.  And I like my eggs in wild colors and abstract patterns, not unlike my paintings...
Well, the eggs have been eaten now, so their colorful shells are but a memory.

Anyway, it was a sleepless week and I feel like in spite of the amount of time that I spent not resting - that I got nothing done. Maybe this week will be better.

I like to color eggs,but they loose their gusto after eating them for a few days.

I totally know the feeling. It seems like no matter how much I do, there is always even more to be done. Blah.

Your eggs are beautiful though! I can never get mine to be so deep and bright. So awesome!

And we had pink jello salad too but ours was waaaaaay pink haha : ]
