Easter Reasons to be Cheerful

I'm joining in again with Reasons to be cheerful. It's so nice to reflect on things in general but even more so in this difficult time. 

This week is the start of the Easter holidays here. We have kept some home ed for routine but mostly we have been having fun. A and Midge have had a water fight this week and finally managed to get me to drag out the paddling pool.

I've enjoyed some of the beautiful flowers in my garden.

We celebrated Passover together this week. For the first time in years I made proper home made bread. I made a loaf of wheat bread and pictured below, had semi success with a gluten free soda bread. 

We lit our candle, had a lovely meal and some comforting prayers led by Mr K. 
We've enjoyed a fish supper tonight and will look forward to our Easter Sunday roast as a big family.

Hope you can all find something positive this week. Much love!

  1. You are doing a great job in the garden. Happy Easter and thanks for joining in x

  2. Simple and beautiful pleasures. A very strange time but if we are loved and love we are blessed and can get through it. I want to bake but cannot find yeast #R2BC

    1. I was very lucky to find yeast in the back of the cupboard. With the soda bread you don't need yeast so that was helpful.

  3. I'm now seeing the attraction of a garden. Yours looks like it's giving you loads of pleasure. I'm intrigued by the loaf of bread for passover but I know that some people do bake passover rolls instead of eating matza. I hope the rest of your week was good. xxx

  4. Very cool that you created an Easter garden, we always do a small one in a tray, but nothing on the scale of yours. I hope you've had a good week. Mich x
