Easter goodies, renos and friends

This weekend was productive!

Normally, the social committee does an Easter egg hunt and craft for the kids - while I have egg painting and paper crafts for the kids, someone else takes our huge bag full of plastic eggs and hides them all over the property. I am not sure our exact size, but we've got 72 units here in 13 buildings - we must be a couple or three acres at least.

However, due to the fact that we have been in reno hell for two years now (I know, it's unbelievable, but there it is) and we have piles of siding laying around, partially excavated balcony supports etc, etc, it just doesn't seem like a safe thing to do right now. Case in point:

Oh, Renos!

So instead, we stuffed good bags:

Easter goodie bags, stuffed with treats!

Everyone seemed quite pleased. Because, you know. Chocolate and gummy candies. It's hard to go wrong.

One moment of bittersweet whilst handing out the loot bags - our dear Bevie, one of the hardest working and loveliest ladies I've met through the social committee, died unexpectedly about a week after Halloween last year. A new family has moved into her unit, but her plants remain. When we walked by, I ran a hand through the rosemary bush she planted - I love that smell - and took a snap of this lovely flower, blooming so brightly, as if Bevie was poking through from the other side to say, "Hello ladies! Enjoy the sunshine!"

I'm sorry for the loss of Bevie.

Glad you had a good Easter.

Love the flower!

Thank you! She is missed, but we choose to take joy where we can and remember her fondly.
