Happy, Happy Easter!!
(Picture= a bunch of plastic eggs ready to hide for an egg hunt in the yard later this afternoon with my niece and nephew + Ivan’s sister and mom.)
We are going to do an egg hunt for the first time in a long time (outside!). The weather is supposed to be great- sunny and high of 72.
Traditionally, we haven’t always done an outdoor hunt because the weather in Wisconsin on Easter is notoriously….moody. I swear, many years it seems like it is FREEZING outside in the morning on Easter Sunday.
I actually just looked it up, because I was curious. The high temps for the past 5 Easter Sundays where we live were:
34 F(!!!!!) Yes, it’s true. Brrrr. I verified this with official Weather Data!!
80 F(!!!!) 34 one year–> 80 the next year??
54 F (2020)
Lots of variety there, as you can see. 🙂 I remember the 80 degree day in 2019- that was a great one!!
Anyway! Looking forward to hopefully a nice, warm, Easter this year. Next year, who knows- according to the trend, it might snow, so we will appreciate this one. 😊
1 year Blogiversary!!!
Today also marks ONE YEAR since I nervously hit “publish” on my very first post. (I also then put a checkmark next to my line item of “Start a blog??” on my 20 for 2020 list I made in January 2020.)
If there ever was a good time to start a daily writing habit, it was April of 2020, in the midst of the early days of the pandemic. I am grateful (or will be, in the future) to have these detailed records of everything we’ve been going through, right down to the little day to day minutiae.
Thanks to everyone who has been reading and following along!!
A special thanks to Joel for his encouraging words at the beginning: “Just keep going until you hit the 6 month mark. Then, keep going until you reach a year. Then, keep going!” 🙂
Great advice that can be applied to anything we are trying out in life- just keeping going. 😊
I am grateful that some people out there actually read my blog! Lol!!! Really though, I am. THANK YOU!
