make-do {and make lovely} monday - unexpected

This weekend is a bit of a haze. I think I slept through most of it. I know I missed a lot of things.
Like remembering to buy proper Easter egg dye.
See Friday evening we got an offer on our house.
To which we countered.
And then through a series of mis-communications (mostly to do with spotty cell phone coverage)  we were not 100% sure if the counter had been accepted until late Sunday night.
So see, I was a wee bit distracted. 
Also I was incredibly tired.I guess it was all of it -house, dogs, chickens, work, book - finally catching up with me.
So I forgot egg dye.
And the Easter bunny almost forgot to bring Chocolate Bunnies.
And I took at least 2 long heavy naps. The kind where you wake up unsure of who or where you are.

Despite my zombie like state, we did manage to observe some of the most basic Easter weekend traditions. We dyed eggs. We used ancient food coloring in the back of my grandmother's cupboards,  vinegar, and water,  creating the most lovely collection of 1970's hued Easter eggs of all time. I could almost feel the polyester. 
And we did have an egg hunt. In fact the boys kept hiding them  from each other so the hunting went on for quite some time. We ate amazing food (thank you Sweet Man and Joshua for keeping us all fed) and wore hats and heels to church and spent many hours lazing about on the screened porch.
And when I wasn't in a coma-esque state I loved getting to see my family; my brother, grandparents, cousins, aunt and uncle, mom and dad. But I missed my sisters. Holiday's are not quite the same without them around. Not quite as lively, not quite as funny or silly or vibrant.

Sunday night we came home and found out that the buyer had accepted our counter (praise the Lord!)
So now we are in another week of waiting.
We make our offer on the farm (yes we have found one, yes I am in love ) tomorrow.
The buyers inspection on our house is Thursday.
I am asking everyone I know to pray, pray, pray.
Pray that all will be well.
That it all will be as it should.
Bright and unexpectedly beautiful. Like these crazy eggs.
