    Somehow I like the number, in principle, but it's scary thinking how long I have been putting out a daily blog. Why, I ask. Seriously. ;-)

    Hope your day is as sunny as ours here today!
    Yes, the snow will melt, sure. We are already above freezing. Barely.

    Cheers,
    Merisi

  2. Why? Because we'd be poorer without it. Long may you continue!
    Exquisite eggs - the hand-painting is not widely done here; some day I'd love to do an Austrian or German Easter!

  20. Joyous Eostre! Eggs are, as you know, historically part of a pagan celebration, a representation of the fertility of springtime - only later adopted by Christianity as the church tried to melt pagan holidays into their own and dissolve them. Happily, it didn't work. 8-)
