Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.

Alexa woke me up at 6:30 this morning with a Frank Sinatra tune. I fed Henry, made coffee and then got into my car and drove down the street to my friend’s house. Every year I decorate the tree by their deck with Easter decorations. It had rained most of the night so everything was wet. I had a bag of decorations. I do wish I were taller as most of the decorations are on the lower branches. One chick fell over the side. If it had been dry, I would have retrieved it. I hope it doesn’t start raining again as most of the decorations are paper, but the sky is really dark.

Henry loved his Easter biscuit. It was shaped like a bone, covered in fake chocolate and had lots of sprinkles. He licked it first. I guess that’s the dog equivalent of biting off the rabbit’s ears.

When I was a kid, the Easter baskets were amazing. A tall chocolate rabbit was dead center. Jelly beans were strewn around the bottom on the fake grass. There were hard colored candy eggs with a solid white center. Sometimes there was a hollow chocolate chick. Most times there was a coloring book and crayons. My sisters got the stuffed animals while my brother and I got small games. We ate whatever we could get away with until my mother forced us to have breakfast. We’d put the partially eaten rabbits into the baskets. I remember the grass used to stick to the bitten parts. It didn’t matter to us.

My friends and I are going out to dinner which we do every year, to the Ocean House. Even on a dark rainy day it is wonderful to sit by the water and watch the waves on the rocks. I actually wear a dress and my fascinator, a small white hat with a purple brim decorated with colored feathers on a headband. It always gets attention.

It has started to rain. I hope my friends saw the tree before the rain.

Happy Easter!
