Really Random Thursday, 4/4/24

 April already? I know I always seem to say that at the beginning of each month, but time just seems to go by so quickly!

Here are the books I read in March:

Here are the results for the first quarter of my "book madness" bracket.

Winner of the first quarter. While my favorite genre is mystery/suspense, this book completely stole my heart with its beautiful writing and story line. Highly recommend.

Easter Sunday was lovely. There is also a photo op background at church.

Then we handed my phone to our pastor. He took the first photo and then kept coming in closer and closer, so when I looked at the photos later, this is what I had (Jason and Jill had headed home by this point):

Every year we have brunch at our house, and as in past years, it was nice enough to eat outside. Mark always makes a lot of crepes and we supply strawberries, sausage, and deviled eggs. Christa and Jill bring savory fillings like turkey, bacon and avocados. It's all so yummy.

This year, Jill said she and the girls had found a fun interactive game to play for the Easter egg hunt.  It was so much fun! Basically, in addition to the usual candy-filled plastic eggs, there were eggs that had letters in them. On the table were prizes. The kids had to collect letters, put them on the prize they hoped to win, and the person who added the final letter would get that prize. There were enough prizes for two each. I think we should make this a yearly tradition. 

It was a great day.
