My youngest reminded before bed "Yeah!! the Easter Bunny is coming in the morning!!"
Since I "forgot" to buy those pain in the ass little plastic eggs that I stuff with candy every year and hide all over the house for the easter egg hunt in the morning (she's 13 and won't give up santa or the bunny) I was feeling guilty lying in bed and just got a great idea.
I'll go outside with little baggies of peeps, jelly beans, and chocolate bunnies and hide them in the grass outside. The grass got green overnight -- I CAN't BELIEVE IT!!! SPRING IS HERE!! (I forgot to buy that pain in the ass easter grass too)
I'll leave a note from the "bunny" on the computer screen to play this video I just found. SHE WILL CRACK UP!! It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard and I can tell she thinks the same cause she always plays it in the car on the way to school. We've been listening to this song Whispering Grass - non-stop for about a week now, ever since I found it over at Londonlee's (the best Mp3 blog in the WWW!) The Ink Spots originally did the song in 1940. I'm sure she'll never listen to it again in the same way. Watch the video - you'll see what I mean. It's sung by Windsor Davies (Sgt. Major Williams); and Don Estelle (Gunner 'Lofty' Sugden). They are part of a British comedy show, It Ain't Half Hot Mum from the '70's. "The humour centres on the exploits of a Royal Artillery concert party, and their hapless attempts to boost the morale of troops stationed in colonial India during the Second World War".
All right! Gotta go stuff those baggies and head outside. Where's a post-it....
NOTE: "watch video - go outside -- ask the trees....."
I'll do the Windsor Davies voice from the deck ("hot - hotter -- cold - warm" ) as she scavenges around the back yard looking for breakfast.
Happy Spring (that's our celebration today) to all, and enjoy the season to come... listen and watch in awe, as mother nature works her magic.
