They don't sell white eggs here.

So I used beet juice and old wine to dye some brown eggs murky.

Then I dropped them. That was an accident.

They're very tender and lovely inside. But are they easter?

Just treasure the stuff they make us. Aida from second grade presented me with this pop-up card last week. Outside it says PARA SOUFi (for Sophie) and her name, and inside it says ¡PARA TI! (for you!) and there is a pop-up blonde crosseyed queen with heart cheeks. Ooh! I think it's me!
