How was your weekend? Ours was pretty good. I was ready for a weekend after learning the ropes of distance learning last week. It wasn’t bad but I was really tired of staring at screens and my brain hurt from learning new things. Much of what I had to do was record keeping for my 146 students. It was tedious and time consuming. This week will be even busier but I think I have figured a few things out.

Friday night I decided to get the local Mexican. I used Door Dash instead of picking it up because I figure the driver is local and needs money.


I made my own margarita while I waited!

Saturday morning I took a nice walk by my school and saw some geese enjoying the grounds.

I need to do a better job of having vegetables cut up and ready to go so that is what I did for lunch Saturday. Everybody could grab what they wanted. Did you see my post Saturday? These are my brownie cookies made from a brownie mix. Check it out if you didn’t see it!

I only boiled 6 eggs and I tried a vinegar and food color dying method. It was cool.

I made another whipped coffee.

I was so happy to take it out to the patio and I had been waiting since Tuesday to be able to make one. Kroger failed and didn’t put it in my order so I ordered it off of Amazon. It came around 11 and I was so happy to receive this pack of 80.

After the eggs dried this is what they looked like. I should’ve rolled them around in the paper towels more.

I will probably always do Easter baskets. They were pretty light this year because one item did not arrive on time. The boys really laughed at the t-shirts – funny references to a show they like and they really liked their blue light blocking glasses for this new online school life.

Then, we had a Zoom with my sisters and mom and all the kids.

It was rainy Sunday. We watched online church, some other t.v., I did school work, boys did school work, and I cooked a lot of stuff.

Here is how our Easter dinner turned out. We have lots of leftovers.

How was your weekend? Are you ready for another week?

Take care!

  1. That’s a great deal on the instant coffee. I drink that some mornings if I don’t feel like making a whole pot. I just did some candy in the Easter baskets this year. Hope you have a good week.

  2. We are getting lots and lots of rain today. We had a very nice Easter though I had to put my boys gifts into a gift bag because I could not remember where I put their baskets!

  3. My mom did Easter baskets until we moved out of the house and then, pre-Wells, always sent me something. NOW, Wells just gets a bunch of stuff from her. Of course.

    If I had more than Scott and me here to eat (like two hungry teens), I’d have made a full dinner for sure.

    1. I love holidays and my boys never ask for anything so I use holidays as a time to give them things they need or to treat them. I usually did swim trunks and goggles but they don’t need those this year. They love funny t shirts. I ordered their college of choice sweatshirts but they didn’t come in time.
