It's only a few more days until Easter arrives. Our weather is still very chilly, and I wonder if this year's Fifth Avenue Easter Parade might suffer. I am still wearing my down coat, and am often glad to have gloves and hat nearby. A showy bonnet would be totally out of place.
As the above photo reveals, I have some chocolate eggs in my home. My Lenten chocolate fast will soon be ending, and I do look forward to that first Cadbury Creme Egg. I might not enjoy the second Creme Egg quite so much.
I've been busy with all sorts of required tasks during the past week, including actually focusing on filing my 2012 taxes. This is a tedious task, and I am much relieved to know that my forms have been signed, sealed into envelopes and mailed to the required governmental agencies.
Let me assure readers who left comments before my recent laptop purchase that I am still quite happy with new my Mac laptop.
I made another visit to the neighborhood Apple store on a beautiful day, and was granted easy permission to take a photo through the skylight ceiling showing the blue sky through the clouds surrounded by some big neighborhood buildings.
Have any of you all read any novels by Ruth Ozeki? I had the pleasure of meeting her several weeks ago, and since then have read her first novel, My Year With Meats, and am now reading her new novel, A Tale for the Time Being. She is an interesting person, and writes books with multiple layers.
Most of my time in the recent weeks has been spent indoors. We have had chilly days, accompanied by rain, by sleet, by snow, by fierce winds. How I do hope that true spring weather will settle in hereabouts very soon.
After all, Easter is almost here. It's time to get outdoors and enjoy see green leaves, flowers, and gently warm, sunshiny days.
Thank you all for all your visits and comments, and a very Happy Easter to you, too.
