[dropcap]Happy[/dropcap] Easter everyone! 🐰 Hope you’re all having a wonderful Easter Sunday and enjoying your Easter long weekend. It’s been great for us to sit back/relax and reflect/celebrate together. The weather’s been excellent over here – sunny and warm during the day – perfect for mild celebration. We’ve been enjoying it mainly indoors with some light reading, work and movies. On Good Friday, I cooked the red fin fish that mum gave us and turned it into a modern Lao fish soup – complete with padaek and fish sauce, tomatoes, leafy greens/herbs and sliced nori sheets as garnish. It turned out very tasty – we enjoyed it with toasts. I also dyed some eggs red with dye given to my partner last year. The dye is outrageously intense/concentrated and the eggs turned out beautiful. We’ve enjoyed hot crossed buns from the local bakery and made short work of them. We replenished them today – they just taste so good grilled with morning coffee.
Also on Friday, my partner wanted to download and watch The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), but for some reason the internet/download was so slow on the day. It didn’t finish downloading until Saturday afternoon! We found a dvd of Gaslight (1944) hiding somewhere in the pile and watched it on Friday night instead – it’s a great/classic b&w movie that we recommend. We finally watched The Last Temptation of Christ on Saturday night – it was well worth the wait. It’s an epic/artistic and informative/controversial depiction/story – another great/classic movie that we enjoyed very much and recommend. Have you watched a good movie lately? Do you like old/classic movies? Earlier in the week, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about for today’s post but it made sense to write about Easter. My partner suggested that I arrange/compose an Easter special still-life and a collection of objects/ideas came to mind. The end result is a slight mishmash/ensemble of favourite Easter objects. I hope you like it. Have a happy and safe week all! smile
