Our Easter Weekend

                             We had such a lovely weekend. The sun was out. Friends were frolicking.
                              Sugar was coursing through our veins.

                                 Some friends of ours from Meeting have a house out in Kingston.
                                 Washington, not Jamaica. They invited us all out for a potluck
                                 egg hunt.
                                  Brixton forgot what he was hunting for. The big kids got him
                                  back on track.

                                Then everyone spread out on the lawn to inventory their loot.


                               
                                 Then we went to the beach. Chris and I decided we're ready
                                 to retire to Kingston too.


                                  Today we went to Meeting for Worship. In keeping with Quaker
                                  tradition, we have the same kind of silent unprogrammed Meeting
                                  we always have, nothing is different for Easter. The idea is that you
                                  should feel and act the same way on "ordinary" days as you do you
                                  holidays.

                                 Nevertheless. We decorate and get dressed up. It's a middle ground
                                 I guess.


I made this too. Not our ordinary dinner.

Happy Passover, Happy Easter, Happy Spring,
 Hallelujah Oh Susannah Amen.

What a beautiful place!! I'd want to retire there too if I didn't live on the east coast! Sounds like a perfect Easter weekend!

I love the idea of a Quaker meeting, especially being how you are on holidays as you are on every single day - a sort of celebration of our best selves for each and every day. Makes total sense to me. Funny, as much as I ride the Anacortes run to our island, I always look at the schedule and wonder about the other destinations, like Kingston. Looks totally gorgeous.
