We decided to celebrate easter a day early. Sunni's first easter! I gave him a small paper cup with green paper shreds inside for grass, and millet buried under it. I added toy parts and other treats with broccoli. Then we had an easter egg hunt with tiny paper stars filled with millet. Hanging from his cage, between bars, on platforms and in toys. Probably the most enriching holiday he's ever had lol. We then went on a walk to see wild birds and get some sunshine. And it's only 10:30 in the morning. Usually I'm waking up at this time!

Anyone else celebrate early?

You're so lucky you can do that, Mizzely! We still are vaccinating in the 75+ range, so we'll be doing something outside, socially distanced, in waves, as the limit is 5 people outdoors. Makes no sense; they're driving irresponsible people inside. I also tried unsuccessfully to get a ticket to a mass this weekend. Didn't work. Thanks, COVID.

That said, I am celebrating, all week - I took it off as vacation - always do! And I went & ordered some new toys for the budgies from two vendors - one new, one not.

I'm sorry :( My mom, dad, grandpa, and husband are fully vaccinated and my sister and me are halfway there. The kids aren't in school so our risk is very low and we are currently allowed 15 people indoors. I'm very happy we are able to get together :)

I love dyeing eggs! I don't remember ever not doing it on easter, but we might not have time this year.

Cool idea with the Q-tips! I'll have to try that.
Yeah we had never tried it before either! Works pretty good :)

I bet it would work great with acrylic, Mostly the eggs we dye are decoration, nobody I know really cares for boiled egg lol. Now that I think about it, dyeing eggs is such a waste for my family! I can save some not dyed ones for the birdies though!

Made a few hard boiled eggs. I felt in the mood & share a piece with Penny.
I did not color them though no sense for me.

Easter is a bit of reflection this year although I did buy some gummy snakes I like so I have candy.

Last year I spent it in Australia with Mom. This year I am alone.

Happy Easter

I usually spend easter pigging out on chocolate eggs... but this year no eggs. I don´t know what happened , brexit maybe, but the British shop had no eggs. My mum didn´t send me a box with eggs in either this year :( No family, no chocolate eggs. We´re still limited to 3 or 4 people per gathering but we never have folks round here anyway so no big deal for us. We have Jacob and the birds, we don´t need more than that. I´m sure we´ll have a lovely day at home :)

I might ask my mum to do a big haul of discounted eggs after the weekend and post them to me :D

We didn’t buy any eggs this year in prep for Easter (we don’t need the extra calories!) but I’m sure we will end up with some later today as my son is just about to go to the supermarket and they’ll now all be heavily discounted.

Regarding colouring eggs, you can make designs or write on them using clear crayon or wax. :)
Yes! I was wondering if anyone else did this...one of my favorites was pale blue dye sky on top with white crayon clouds, and blue and green overlapping for the sea with crayon waves and sailboat

Yeah, I usually use the clear wax or white crayon on the eggs, but it's so hard when you have no idea where the white's going on the white egg! It's like drawing with your eyes closed lol.
