a little story about Dyed  Easter Eggs

Years ago when my granddaughter and her friend were much younger we had a fun-filled afternoon of dying Easter eggs.

We sat up a plastic covering on the floor,arranged all our hard boiled eggs and cups of dye.

My glass of wine sitting close by.

The colors of red on the plastic after wine spilled.

After we finished we loaded up the car and went back to my daughters to share our creations.

Months later on a very hot summer day, a terrible odor was perpetuating from my car.

Upon investigating, two eggs were found and very quickly disposed of.

Hard Boiled Eggs easy to peel has too me felt like a game of Russian Roulette. Sometimes they were perfect , other times they made great egg salad Open-mouthed smile

I have used old eggs, new eggs, baking soda, salt OR vinegar in the water

Nothing seems too matter.

So each time I boil eggs I either have perfect deviled eggs that peeled like easy peasy. Or I just use in salads.

Hempy the Hamster loves them anyway he gets them.

My secrets that work sometimes.

  1. Eggs must not be fresh (Use Old Ones)
  2. Don’t let them boil forever, bring too boil and let sit 15 minutes.
  3. After cooking, let the eggs rest in an ice-bath to “shock” them.

Say a little prayer…Please my little eggs “Peel for me”

Easter’s Pink Moon


It’s 2015…April 1st.

We’re making paper mache eggs on Friday.

Changing calenders. This everlasting calender was given to me in 2000. Ortish-Easter-CareDad and I changed the dates together in January 2001. He died January 31st 2001.
I also put together my Easter Care Basket.My special paper mache egg that Buf and I created in 2002.I even blogged about making them.

My mama always said it was a FULL MOON night when I was born.

Full Moon: Being born in the middle of the cycle means that your talents lie in bringing matters to fruition. You are adept at tempering logic with instinct and practicality with creativity. Moreover, this period acts like a bridge, linking you to the past, but also projecting your ideas into the future. The negative side is that you may suffer guilt and irrational fears, especially when it comes to personal relationships. Only when you learn to take control of your own feelings, rather than taking your emotional cue from your partner, will you find a way of sustaining a mutually rewarding intimate relationship. Your best efforts will find their flowering after middle age.

Easter always falls after the first full moon of spring.
which is always the first full moon after the spring equinox – therefore the beginning of spring.

This is how later, the calculation of the Easter date had been determined: Easter takes place on the Sunday after the first full moon in spring.
