One of my favorite Easter decorations is the colored Easter grass used in Easter baskets. The rabbits and chicks are certainly adorable, but the look is incomplete without setting them in a bunch of grass! All those pretty colored eggs placed in a grass filled basket is a very traditional way to display these Easter icons. But the eggs look just as lovely nestled in colored grass in a glass bowl. I still like the green grass, but any of the colors work. Generally, I don’t recommend mixing together the different colors. I did, however, one year alternate layers of different colors in a large apothecary jar that I have. I used nothing else for filler. The effect was rather pleasing and something a little different.

When I was a little girl and stayed overnight at grandma’s house, I was amazed that she would sometimes let us eat cookies for breakfast. At home mom always made us eat traditional breakfast food like cereal.In hindsight, the cookies grandma let us eat weren’t exactly Oreos, but rather a healthy snack disguised as a cookie.

Movie Review

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”By Bob GarverRegular readers know that I’m usually quick to attack Captain America. I argue that he got his powers from taking questionable injections and I consider him a glorified steroid case. I can’t do that with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Injections can’t make our hero so tactical or incorruptible or handy with a shield. So already things are looking up.
