Good Friday

This is Good Friday at my house, eegs, bread and friends. It was a brillant day, warm and spring like, a rare treat for Easter here in the Great White North. We had friends over to make Ukrainian Easter Eggs, but I forgot about the camera until after they left. It was a lot of fun. We went to church and messed with Calvin's routine enough that he needed to start misbehaving before we came home. I explained to Calvin that he had a choice about his behaviour right now and if he choose to have a tantrum he might not like the weekend long time-in that would result. Amazingly he managed to control himself and did not have a tantrum. Sometimes being firm like that works, other times not so much.
Today is another busy day, lots to do for the all day eating party that is Easter when you are Ukrainian. I am looking rather forward to spending the day with friends and eating until I am ready to burst. I hope that they boys are able to handle the day with out too many issues.
I am off to the store for cheescake supplies and wine. What more does a girl need.

Nana would be pleased with you... Not so much with me. We had dim sum & a sunny playground. Miss you all. C

Your eggs are great! I watched a documentary on them, it is a very long detailed process.
I am jealous of the cheesecake and wine. Hmmm. May need to go to the store.
We have no plans except to stay home and not kill each other. My sister is having a baby any minute and all things are on hold until baby appears.

So glad Calvin held it together. Beautiful eggs!

Did I miss it? What are the bread things? The eggs are beautiful.

Your breads are gorgeous! Is that a traditional Ukrainian shape and/or recipe? I am always looking for such, so if it is and you wouldn't mind sharing, I'd love it. P is taking more and more of an interest in his Ukrainian roots (used to be adamantly opposed to hearing any mention of Ukraine...).

If you have spare wine and cheesecake, please send!

Wow! The bread looks amazing - and the eggs are beautiful. Holidays sound so special at your house. I am still in awe of pierogies for 85 people this past winter!!!!
