A good morning.

I was awoken with a tray: pancake, maple syrup, bacon, orange juice, coffee (roasted yesterday), and a Green & Black’s 70% chocolate egg.

Life is good.

Happy renewal season to you all. A March/April fertility festival makes as much sense to me in southern Western Australia as it did in Massachusetts.

When we lived in the North, Easter was the time when the Earth came to life again, the weather warmed enough to play outside, things began to regrow, and the world turned from white to green. In WA, Easter falls around the time when the suffocating heat lifts enough to go outside comfortably again, the rains begin, things begin to regrow, and the world starts to turn from brown to green. Aside from the hayfever, it’s my favourite time of year.

  2. Definitely sounds like a great breakfast. We didn’t break out the chocolate until after lunch. Still most enjoyable.

  3. We didn’t do so well on the Easter eggs – just a few, to keep the chocolate intake lowish for the younger members of the household, but we did do a fine line in Hot atheist buns.
    And coffee in bed, courtesy of our elder daughter. Just nine years old, and she makes a fine brew. I treasure that child.

    A long long time ago, as a child, in what was (at the time) a town on the outskirts of Boston.

  5. So were you originally American – or an Australian whose parents migrated to America?

  6. Love the hot atheist buns, Deborah! And the first comment had to be someone berating you about the heart attack risk from the butter *eyeroll*
