This is the last post about Easter, I promise. As I am Romanian, my family and friends back home are celebrating Easter tomorrow and via Facebook I get slowly back into the mood. I am not that religious and for me Easter meant more new clothes from the Bunny, spring holidays and mandatory colored eggs.
Another old tradition from Transylvania is the "the sprinkle" (it's so funny, I don't even know how to translate in English). In rural communities on the second day of Easter the youngsters went through the village to sprinkle with water the women in the family and the girls they liked, offering their best wishes. The water was used as a sign of fertility and abundance. The boys received traditional Easter food (lamb, cakes) and of course colored eggs and strong drinks.
Nowadays it's used perfume instead of water and if you received on of the visitors you will have luck all year round. I liked it so much as a teenager because everyone was allowed to stay out late :)
No doubt one of my favorite blogs is My Milk Tooth. ickle and Lardee are the most adorable cute little guys that one can imagine. Each new post makes me melt. They are so adorable, the story is always catchy and the details are unbelievable sweet. I was joking with a friend saying that you can get toothache so sweet they are.
I gave the book to my boyfriend as Christmas gift and it was one of the best choices I ever made. Look at Rabbit, he can't get his eyes off the book. It really makes a great present for friends and kids. I will buy it for sure again also to support the artist and keep the story on. She is doing such an amazing job!
I managed to get some things done: the postcards - usually the most fun part but the most messy one, cleaning, landlords visits, baking a cake (mix of Sachertorte and Death by chocolate - results?! for sure it looks yummy) and of course the not so fun part of cleaning again the kitchen after baking a chocolate cake. For sure I need to better plan my work flow :/
As I'm in Germany and every Holiday is holy all shops were close today. So I will have to leave the eggs colouring for tomorrow morning as I had no paint. Maybe that's good otherwise I wouldn't have time to write this post...Oh was that positive thinking? OMG I'm making progresses
As it wouldn't be enough to be sick, I also have a loooong to do list to finish before even start thinking of Easter! Each at it's time. First a handkerchief, than a ginger tee snuggling under the covers and so on...
