A Beautiful Easter Morning



I awoke to one of the most relaxing and beautiful scenes this morning. My In-Laws place is on the water and the view is just breathtaking.

I woke up and felt instantly relaxed. It is no matter that I am the only person up right now. Everyone else can sleep while I enjoy this beautiful morning.

I am thinking about getting outside for some exercise, but I am worried that it isn’t nearly as warm as it looks.


Sketchie loves the view too. So much so that he pawed at our door until we I let him in this morning.

Yesterday was so much fun!

We played Trivia Pursuit for most of the afternoon. It was couples teams! We never actually finished but Eric and I were in the lead with 5 pie pieces. :) I was surprising myself how many questions I got right! Biggest lesson learned: Go with you first instinct, always!


Everyone loved the cookies I decorated for my niece- she just loved them!


Oh the intensity!


I did a B.Y.O.T. (as per usual for me)- Bring Your Own Tea. :D

I brought some Echinacea tea, and some Stash Goji Berry teas. I always come prepared!

There was a beautiful sunset last night:


Part of the century home:


This is part of the extension below. You can see the stone wall which is where the original century home ends. I love that they incorporated the exterior stone right into the house!


We had a late dinner around 9pm. We were all starving, and that was after I had some fruit and saltine crackers while playing the game. I also had 2 servings of Nature’s Path Kamut cereal and a granny smith apple in the car.

On the menu for dinner was chicken and beef shiskebabs, baked potatoes, strawberry salad, multigrain bread, and red + white wine.


I had 2 veggie shiskebabs, a baked potato, salad, bread, and a 4oz pour of white wine.


I ate all of that plus more salad and some of Eric’s potato and veggies that he didn’t eat. :) I had about 2 tsp of margarine for the potato and bread. Mmmm. So good.

For dessert I tried a bite of Eric’s cupcake but was too full to have much else!

Mr and Mrs. and my MIL :)


Eric and I bunked in the ‘music room’ and Eric serenaded me with the banjo before slumber. lol.


Well, I think I am going to get into a nice warm shower and start my day. I think we will be going out for breakfast this morning likely around 10:00am. I am going to need to dive into my snack stash before breakfast because my stomach is growling!

I would like to get out for a walk today too!

Was the Easter Bunny good to everyone?? Drop me a comment below and let me know how your Easter weekend is going!

I will be posting on the drive home later this afternoon. :) See you then!

Happy Easter to you!
What a beautiful home – is that on the St. Lawrence? We have a cottage in Alexandria Bay in the Thousand Islands, which would be across from Rockport

I have come to my grandparent’s in Port Hope for the weekend and managed to get my Irish grandfather to drink two green monsters so far! When I asked if he wanted a smoothie he said “What’s a smoothie?” Am loving this great weather!

Everything looks so much fun. Him serenading you looked so cute. My family is 13 hours away and I miss them, especially on days where I know my mom cooked amazing food.
