What’s worse than overzealous security personnel on a United Flight? Little Bunny Flu Flu!

Little Bunny Flu Flu,

Hoping through the air ducts;

Jumping on the passengers;

And giving them a bug!

My husband came home from a trip to Colorado with some extra baggage, a really nasty virus. That left me to take care of him and prep for Easter weekend and a cabin full of houseguests, one of whom was a Home Ec teacher. This wonderful lady actually made a career out of home making and is really good at it. She does not judge, but I can’t help making sure my home is extra polished for her visits. As if that isn’t intimidating enough, she’s also an amazing cook. Here’s what she brought for the weekend:

  • Homemade cheese;
  • An assortment of meats;
  • A bundt cake;
  • Two dozen pastries;
  • Fruit Salad;
  • Green Salad with homemade dressing;
  • Pierogis;
  • Asparagus-feta tarts;
  • Shrimp ceviche;
  • Two bags of thick-cut potato chips;
  • Butter in the shape of a bunny; and
  • A Partridge in a pear tree!

This doesn’t even include a wide assortment of beverages both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. As you can imagine, this lady is in high demand as a house guest. She and her husband are booked months in advance.

My husband managed to rally a bit by the time the first guest arrived, but was still pretty weak so I volunteered to drive with one guest to the Easter vigil at the Catholic Church on Saturday night. That sucker lasted two and a half hours. There must have been a lot of grace going on in there.

When we got home from church at 10:00 pm, we found the oldest and youngest cousins had discovered my stash of Easter candy for the next day and were hunched over it like zombies with a particularly plump corpse. Did I mention these cousins are 26 and 49? Apparently they also tucked into the stash of Gin, because they thought this whole scene was hilarious!

The good news is we all had a fantastic time with great conversation, great food, an amazing session of star gazing, and a lot of laughter. This Easter was another hosting opportunity that made me truly grateful for the blessings of my family and friends.

The bad news is, as that last guest pulled out of the driveway I felt that tell-tale tickle in the back of my throat. I now have the flu. Thanks a lot Little Bunny Flu Flu.

Thank you for visiting,
