I'm hoping that posting a lot of pictures all at once will make up for the fact that I've had no inclination to attend to this blog of mine.  This spring chicken is in a funk.  Funk, funk, fuck, funk.  I hid a secret message.  I'm clever that way.
I felt a certain affinity with this bird.  He kind of has this WTF look about him, that I've also been sporting lately.  
Castle & Woods.  
I decided to go the ambitious route for Easter eggs this year.  The girls and I went to the market to pick up ingredients to make natural dyes.  Our home smelled of cabbage and beets.  If you ask Aaron, this is not a good thing.  
My favourite was the cabbage.  I was not expecting that kind of blue.
Claudia went to school on her birthday with carrot cake for the class.  They lit birthday candles for her and sang her happy birthday "in two languages!".  But the best was seeing her face when Granddad and Grandma came and picked her up after school.  I think Peter may have had his breathing compromised from the ferocious bear hug he received.  It was a really great visit, and so much fun to show them around Münster at this time of year.  I think the girls loved their two worlds colliding.  I liked having a spotless kitchen for five days.  Thanks Donna!  xoxo

Finally, a new post! I was about to ditch you completely for my other favourite blog. She posts daily, you should try it. I'll always be keen on reading your daily ramblings. On a side note, your orange tree is still alive, great work.

Found your secret message.

I was leaving Su's yesterday and saw something orange curled up snoozing on a lawn on my way out. I said to myself, what an unusual color for a dog. Then the "dog" looked up at me. It was a fox. Gave me the same look the bird gave you. Seeing how he was all of ten feet away from me, I chose to book it before he figured out WTF.

Nice eggs.

Ellie's look reminds me of Damien in The Omen - just before the church steeple falls over and pins the priest to the ground.
