Happy Day After Easter ! Hope yours was a very nice one however you spent it. Rather obviously I made a cake :) I've been craving cake for weeks now and then I realized that it was nearly Easter and said to my self, "Thank goodness there is a Holiday coming up! Sounds like a good excuse to make a cake " . Hah! Like I need an excuse .....
We started our Easter by getting up early and heading over to the Airport Fairgrounds once again. Yes, that's right, it was time for my 2nd vaccine dose. Can you believe that many people gave up spending their holiday with friends and family just make us all safe? Wow! I was seriously impressed. When I was first issued the appointment I thought it was a mistake. Really? On Easter Sunday? But yuppers. That's when it was.
And exactly as the previous time, it was very well organized and with the help of the National Guard, went smooooooooothly. But man oh man, there were a Lot of people there. All for the same reason.
At times it kind of looked like a magicians trick because the line seemed to go on forever and ever, amen, amen. But we were in and out, including both the actual shot and the 15 minute post-shot wait time, in less than a hour. Not bad.
Once we returned home we commenced some serious relaxing. There was absolutely nothing imperative on my schedule until it was time to fix dinner. And naturally I wanted to fix something a little special. Not fancy. I don't do fancy. But a nice roast chicken with mashed potatoes, green beans and home made biscuits don't hurt anybody's feelings. Well maybe the chicken but I'm not goin there. And the, of course, the après dinner aforementioned cake. Which, by the way, was pretty good. I know that was very braggy but honestly, it was good.
I even broke down this year and bought one of those Paaz egg decorating kits. Haven't done that since the boys were young but I've been eying them in the store for quite some time. This year I said, "what the hell" and scooped one up. I was surprised at how little they have changed. Well, I didn't need boiling water this time, but it still required vinegar, they still have the little wire egg dipper and the box had the punch outs to put the eggs to dry. That was a really fun flash from the past. Why not? I'm not afraid of looking childish, although I prefer it to be called, child like.
So today, as I write this, I'm just shy of 24 hours post vaccine and yes I'm a little achy, a little tired and a little, not quite myself today. BUT as I told another friend recently, I'd rather have some achy/tired for a couple of days than dead forever. Really wasn't much of a choice. And the side effects? Not stopping me today. I'm moving slower, but I've not stopped. And this too shall pass. Just a minor blip on my personal radar.
So that was our Easter. How was yours?
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
