a day off

[photo taken at Leura Deli. their Easter egg display]

Easter Monday. I don't know what that means. maybe there is a religious significance. I don't have a clue.

here in Australia, it is a holiday... so what does one do on Easter Monday? a year or so ago, I would have been at work hard in my garden, tending the plants, mulching, gathering kindling for the coming winter. But today I woke feeling out of sorts... not quite right. so I did the best thing for my soul. Dutch husband lit a fire and I snuggled under an eiderdown ~ napping on and off all day. that is about it.

You are so lucky that it is a holiday. I sure wish it was one for me. Almost called in sick today. I never miss opening day of baseball and totally forgot to request the day off, but alas, I decided to save a sick day for when really needed. Have a wonderful restful day.

That sounds like the perfect way to spend the day! It's rainy here so maybe a fire might be part of my afternoon, too.

I don't know the significance of Easter Monday ~ something I'll have to look up.
I am sorry to hear you are feeling out of sorts. You know it is the waning moon ~ I tend to get a bit depressed and wondering what the heck I am doing with my life.
Snuggle in and feel better.
Love and Hugs))

Easter Monday marks the date on which the risen Christ first appeared to one of his followers -- Mary Magdalene. Some say that Christ's choice to appear first to her (rather than one of the male disciples) shows her true status within early Christianity, which has been obscured by subsequent centuries of misogyny on the part of the organized church.
