It is a beautiful sunny Easter morning and I am sitting here listening to the girls going through their Easter baskets (and the neighbor's dog barking - he does that all of the time!). They are most excited about the jelly stickers, and a bit disappointed to find licorice in some of their Easter eggs. Easter in Australia began early. The stores brought out the chocolate eggs over a month ago. It was challenging to find anything but chocolate in the stores. My 6 year old doesn't enjoy chocolate all that much so it was a bit tricky to find an alternative. Yesterday when I was on a run it was strange to see the trees had changed colours to Autumn yellow, orange and red. I have to remind myself that it is Easter weekend in Autumn. Christmas in summer was unusual, but I must say this seems even stranger to me. The weather is gorgeous - 21 degrees C and sunny. We are joining the Calis for Easter dinner later today.
