Happy April


As we wave goodbye to March and say hello to April, glad that there were no April fools gags here.

Well friends, I hope you enjoyed the weekend.

We had a wonderful weekend with the family and friends ...  Darling daughter  and Handsome Son came home so it was great to catch up with them. I am glad that Easter is once a year, ... all the  chocolate Easter eggs and treats can make for a sugar  overload.
 The smell of home baked goodies is wonderful and as  my hot cross buns were devoured in a flash I had to bake another batch the next day. The house really did smell divine with the cinnamon and mixed spices wafting from the oven.

 I am thankful for each of you,  and very much appreciate you visiting  me, sweet blogging friends.
Wishing you a wonderful week
hugs
Carolyn

  2. Carolyn, I can imagine the awesome smells of your home from reading this post. Omg, it makes me want a chocolate bunny and a hot cross bun.

    Sounds like a great time was had by all.
    How fun to have both your kids home. Nothing puts a bigger smile on a mother's face than having her kiddos putting about the house.

    A happy new week to you!

  3. Carolyn,
    I'm so glad you had a nice Easter and got to spend time with your daughter and son. I also had a blessed Easter with all the family. Can you believe it's April already? Your hot cross buns must have been a hit, as you had to make another batch. You are the first person today to remember April Fools. Hahaha I remembered too. Have a good week, Carolyn.
    Much love,

  7. Yes we had not anyone who did april fools of us. It's probably because the children are now adults.
    It's great with a long holiday with the family and wonderful we are now in April, so I hope, now we get a little spring.
    I wish you a lovely April with plenty of sunshine.
    Hugs

    That sounds like you had a perfect Easter season with lots of love and family around. Baking again for a happy family is just a labor of love and I've always enjoyed doing this.

  16. Can you believe it's April already? Time is going by way too fast. We had a busy weekend and the rest of the week will probably be the same. Hubby and daughter are on vacation so they have a lot of things planned for us to do. Just wanted to stop by to say hello and wish you a wonderful week. Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter with your kids at home and all the yummy treats...those cross buns look sooo good. One day I will have to give that recipe a try. Sending you a great big hug.

  24. A pretty Easter display. So glad you had a lovely Easter which is always a special occasion when some family members are able to come. The hot cross buns are always welcome and it's good when you can make your own. Baking and sharing treats is very satisfying. Have a relaxing week, Carolyn. x
