Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!

Ben and I had a very relaxing and leisurely Easter this year. We slept in. We hung out at the dining room table and chatted over breakfast. I made a cake from scratch. We had a lunch feast down the road at our family cabin with my extended family. Then we came home and took a nice stroll through the trails along the Hudson that are just across the street from our house.

I took a few photos to share from our walk...

There aren't tons of flowers in bloom in our area yet, but I did manage to find a teensy daffodil, some interesting white woodsy flowers, and violets!

We trekked down a little hidden trail that was an offshoot of the main trail and found this old bridge ruin. You can't really see in the photo, but there's a goose sitting (on a nest?) on top!

I snooped in the water for a bit and found a type of water snail I've never seen around here before.

And one of my favorite springtime activities....lifting up old logs to see who's living underneath. One worm, a pill bug, and a brown spider under this one! I used to spend hours looking under logs in the spring when I was kid. The ultimate rare find? A salamander! No salamanders today though. :)

And I know I'm a little late, but tomorrow I'll be posting more photos of my Easter decor.

I hope everyone had a great of a holiday as we did!

What a great way to spend Easter ! Your new house is in a very nice location - good for you ! I like where that goose is living as well.
