Holidays: 65/365

I wish I had a lovely photo of our Easter eggs colored with homemade beet and tumeric and cabbage dyes. Yes, I actually did that last year.

But we haven’t dyed any eggs, and it’s not looking like there will be time. I remembered to hard-boil a few this afternoon and then popped them in glasses with some old food-based dyes and vinegar. No child participation, just a big rush.

The lead-up to the holidays always feel like a scramble. In my defense, our holidays involve a minimum of two events but usually three, travel, and a good amount of baking. It will all come together. If only I could find a way to feel a less frantic…

  1. I so relate to this – somewhat perfunctory tradition – popping a few hard-boiled eggs in…but I like to remember “The perfect is the enemy of the good”…we too have travel & multiple events for everything (first growing up half Jewish half Irish (background…) celebrated double the holidays…)…I’ve been taking it easy on myself a bit recently when I stop to consider that I have so much family nearby, and keep in touch with so many layers of first, second even third cousins…abundance…but it also means I’m always being pulled outward…

    1. Double the holidays–that is a lot of celebrating! I need to complain less, embrace more when it comes to holidays, but I seem to inevitably feel overloaded. I love the way you state it, “abundance…but it also means I’m being pulled outward…” So true.
