BUSY BEFORE EASTER MARKET DAY

Misty rain greeted me as I hurried through chores to get ready for market this morning.
I got out my Easter vest that I get to wear a couple times each year to get into the festive mood.
I always get so many compliments on this vest because it is the perfect Easter outfit.(have no idea what made that shadow on the bottom of the pic)
Daughter was already at market when hubbie and I arrived. We got set up and had a very busy day as expected.
After lunch daughter walked up to a coffee shop on Main street and brought back a couple of delicious capuccinos for us. I took down all the Easter decorations while she was gone so I wouldn't have to do that next week. I need to find a more spring looking table cloth than the one we put back on today.
We got things loaded and she left to go home to help hubbie paint her front porch rails and I headed out to pick up baking supplies for my first Thursday market day this year. No more getting an early start to my leisure Saturday evenings.
I made stops at Ingles and Aldi then went by Lowes to pick up a couple Easter lilies for church tomorrow.As I carried them to the check out I didn't realize how strong these things smell,whew !! I made it home about 4:00 and got everything unloaded and put away. I also picked up a ham and some other fixins for our Easter lunch tomorrow.
Got a surprise photo message from d-in-love that showed g-son's first lost tooth.
He pulled it himself without saying a word and handed it to his dad. I have a feeling he will start loosing many of them in the next little while.
Our renters wife Rebecca is in labor today with her first baby so we will have a little girl around here soon.
As I fed the chickens this evening I thought I heard little peeps but as I hopefully looked in on the now not setting Silkie there were no chicks but the eggs were warm again as she had been setting on them but I think they got too cold yesterday,today was the 21st day.
One more day in this crazy month of March and the weather for that last day sounds like it will only be fit for ducks,not Easter bunnies !! Today's temperature got into the mid 50's with a little sun but mostly clouds. The rain is moving in overnight and continuing through the day to end March on a very soggy note. Guess we will need to wait and see if it goes out like a lion.
Spent the evening relaxing and reflecting on  God's love for us.
As tomorrow's sunrise comes so does the true Son rise, a savior for all of mankind.
Good Night and God Bless and Happy Easter.

We finally had a day without rain. That was probably why the Smokies were crowded... (Yesterday it rained ALL DAY LONG.) AND--we have rain again tonight...

Glad you had a good day at the market. Hope you all have a blessed Easter.
Hugs,
Betsy
