I hope everyone had a good Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate! (Or turkey or ham or anything else.) The boys dyed Easter eggs on Saturday.

Their Easter loot. The Littlest One got a Nascar basket, and the Oldest One got a Monster Garage basket. Plus there was the baskets from the Easter Bunny with chocolate bunny, mini Monster Truck speed demons, dinky car, and chocolate eggs. Plus the standard egg hunt throughout the house, carefully placed by the EB so Jewel wouldn't get them.

The little bugger even has strong enough legs that he could jump way up to my candelabra and hide eggs! They needed help getting these down.

Nothing finished on the knitting front. Too many things on the go, I feel at the moment. I have the body of nephew's sweater finished and one sleeve almost done. I should set everything aside for a day or two and make myself a new pair of slippers since I have yet another pair wore through. I had to drive to the city yesterday morning to get hubby. The truck broke a spring on Saturday and couldn't get repaired over the weekend, naturally, since everything was closed. He hitched a ride to the city terminal with another driver, so I had to go get him. Today he got a ride back in with a company driver, then he'll have to hitch a ride with another company driver who's going to the Moncton terminal where his truck is. It's always something, no wonder we never get ahead. This on top of the bill for the new bumper he got. I haven't seen it yet, but the old bumper was shot, so he got a moose bumper. I'll have to take a picture when he gets home. (Click on this link, and the truck with the guy standing by it looks just like our truck, so I'd imagine hubby's new bumper looks similar.) He's wanted one of these for a long time now. The company he works for pays for half, but still, they ain't cheap. But if he hits a deer he can keep on truckin' no problem, and this will greatly reduce any damage if he ever does hit a moose. They can write your truck off and/or kill the driver with their massive size. He runs New Brunswick a lot, and the moose season is coming. Having one of these also reduces the insurance deductible on an animal strike.

Anyhoo, I really should go work on something. I took my sweater yesterday to knit on the drive home. I really need to finish something!

Happy knitting!

Easter sounds like it was tons of fun. The nascar and monster garage make me laugh. I guess most of my friends have girls so I usually see bunnies and dolls.

I hate it when life gets in the way of my knitting. I totally understand the need to finish something. Anything so long as it's finished.

The boys dying Easter eggs pictures are great. I remember loving to dye the eggs when I was a kid. And of course the baskets themselves were always lots of fun.

We don't have moose in our streets, just squirrels. But they're bad enough when you're not expecting them.

Just keep knitting. Finishing will happen.
