But apparently we find ourselves at Easter … and Good Friday most specifically.
Good Friday is an odd kind of day … the one day of the year where there is really nothing going on. No shops or pubs or activities … but without the "gotta go and visit as many family members as possible in one day" pressure of Christmas.
It's a lazy kind of day … well it is for us nonpracticing religious type folk.
First on the agenda for the day was a bit of baking … Hubby is currently turning into some kind of Betty Crocker … and decided to whip up a batch of hot cross buns.
This is despite the fact that I bought THREE packets of them in Coles yesterday … because a) it's Easter and it's kind of a legal requirement to have hot cross buns in the house at Easter and b) I fell victim to the buy 3 for the price of 2 sting … when as it turns out I didn't even need 1.
They did look pretty good … Hubby's buns not Coles … I don't know Coles that well ;0)
After partaking of the buns … and feeling them making themselves at home on our thighs ... we decided a little physical exercise was the order of the day.
After all it was a beautiful day outside.
The boys played with their balls.
While I walked Buster from one sniffing post to the next …
and everything in between.
After which Buster settled into the only shade he could find to watch those boyish shenanigans.
Catching the ball.
Fighting over the ball.
And sometimes missing the ball entirely.
Time for a couple of quick Easterish portraits.
A quick run.
And home again.
Then Hubby and I ventured off on a scenic drive … where I took a couple of photos of said scenery.
And one of the barbed wire … just for the sake of it.
And then … even though we are nonpracticing religious type folk … we decided to have fish for lunch … because a) anyday is a good day for fish in my books and b) it was the only place open.
Now I'm off to google just why it is we should eat fish on Good Friday.
Happy Easter Everyone!!
