Yellow construction paper, orange construction paper, feathers, googlie eyes and doodads... all laid out, with a larger sheet of paper to glue cute little Easter chickies on... and I had printed
"Spring Is Coming!" on the big sheets of paper.
Like, used the printer and the very last of my black ink, to do the printing.
Very organized, me.
And then the light bulb went off.
(Yes, I have a light bulb in my head, but unfortunately, I think the little filaments are reaching the end of their lives. )
Easter. Spring. Right?NO! I keep forgetting that I'm in Oz, and in Oz, Easter time is more Autumn-ish.
Easter, the time of re-birth and new growth, a fresh start, eggs hatching, new bulbs and Easter Bunnies leaping through the tall grass ....is actually the time of year in Australia, where everything is slowing down.
Cute little fuzzy spring chicks are now half-grown chickens, just ready for the roasting...
Maybe we'll just cook, instead.
Just don't tell the kids.
