“Happy Easter” seems like a strange thing to say given the religious meaning of the holiday, but I’m not religious in any way so I’ll say it and not feel guilty. For me, Easter is sort of like Thanksgiving: a time to give thanks for all the good things in life and to spend some time with family over a meal.
Easter is also a celebration of rebirth and spring, and here on the Wet Coast it’s when all the flowers really start to kick things into high gear. Everything is turning all those wonderful shades of green that months of falling rain can inspire, and we even get the occasional sunny day during which to admire the colours.
Today we had a great meal over at our sister and brother-in-law’s house. We had a good visit with folks as well, and I enjoyed every minute of it. We left a bit early to try to make time to visit Irene’s horse, Spirit, but of course it started dumping rain on us as we neared home. We drove on home and waved in the general direction of Spirit’s pasture, and Irene promised to come back another day with her horse’s Easter apple.
I finished the main story in Tomb Raider: Legend last night. I really liked the game, but I have to say: talk about a set up for part two…which hasn’t been released yet, grrr! Ah well, I guess I’ll just have to wait and hope that the usual gaming industry shuffle doesn’t result in part two never being produced…
