Around here . . . my house is decorated for Easter. I have lots of cute Easter decorations but I haven't put them out for a few years. This year I was in the mood to decorate (maybe because I'm so desperate for spring) and it was fun to get my bunnies, chicks + eggs out of storage.
Around here . . . I've been enjoying snacks on cute little plates. My daughter gave me a set of adorable owl plates for my birthday and using them makes my snacks seem extra special.
Around here . . . I went to a deli for lunch and thought it was cute that they use a stamp pad and rubber stamp to put their logo on their take-out bags. Gotta love a crafty deli.
Around here . . . I went to downtown Minneapolis last week for a meeting at the IDS Building. The Crystal Court is a two story open space that you walk through on your way from the parking ramp to the IDS Building. Since I arrived early I got a cup of coffee and sat in the Crystal Court for a while doing some people watching. I looked up and saw a large American flag hanging from the glass ceiling and thought it was beautiful.
Around here . . . Mother Nature is playing tricks on us and letting us know that it's not spring until she says it's spring. More snow on Sunday was just depressing.
Around here . . . I'm working on my grocery list for Easter. I'm going to my parent's house so I don't have to cook the whole meal, but I am bringing a few things.
A funny thing happened while I was sitting in the Crystal Court the other day, which is a gathering place for homeless people during the cold winter months. It's a nice, warm spot filled with benches, so who wouldn't want to hang out for a while? I was sitting there enjoying my coffee when one of the homeless men came up to me and very politely told me that I was looking marvelous. Hey, I'll take what I can get! He told me to have a wonderful day and then walked away.
So another week is under way. Hey last week of March, let's do this!
