As you can see in the picture above, I am totally embarassed and overwhelmed by all those Easter eggs (paaseieren) !!! "Mom" is just lucky I sat still long enough for her to get this photo of me...but I was not pleased. I'm listening to the Utrecht Dom tower chimes (the tower in the background), but I"m not too happy about it ... hee heeeeeee! Who's going to help me eat all these Easter eggs??!! lol

Speaking of eating Easter eggs, "mom" did finish her drawing of the chocolate ones I wrote about on Friday's post ... and there are still some left-over chocolates hiding in her studio. I don't think I would have left any behind!

It hasn't snowed yet here today, (though the skies look rather weird right now) , but it's really very cold for the end of March. Our heirloom tulip pots are remaining covered the blooms are too fragile at this point for freezing and below freezing temps like we had overnight. ( - 4 celcius this morning).

I think I'll go peel some Easter Eggs now...wish me luck.

And here's wishing all who celebrate the holiday, a very ...

Happy Easter from Utrecht!

Vrolijk Pasen vanuit Utrecht!

tot ziens,
Sacha




P. S. - "Mom's" knee surgery is scheduled for this coming Thursday...we might be gone for a bit, until she feels like typing again. doei! (bye!)
