*Sets out assorted chocolates and hides Easter eggs* Come on in! It's time for Fiesta! Can't Post

Welcome to another Fiesta Friday! What better way to celebrate a long Easter weekend: some people have Friday off, some have Monday off, and a lucky few have them both off!

Another great reason to celebrate is the 89 new members we’ve gotten since the PF Frodo contest was announced! *waves a welcome* Some of them only posted once so far (*hands on hips* what are you waiting for?), but many others have joined in the discussions and are settling in nicely. WELCOME!!!LaughSmile
(The contest winners will be chosen and emailed by mid-afternoon if you’re wondering).

With that, I thought a fitting tribute to this holiday weekend would be a few scenes from Lord of the Peeps. Enjoy!










p.s. No eating the peeps please. (Ooops! To late Blush)

*kicks juke box – Here Comes Peter Cottontail starts playing*

Happy Weekend, everyone!!!

Yay! I can rush in before rushing out... [In reply to] Can't Post

Chocolate please - and champagne, of course! I mean, it IS Easter weekend, after all... Wink

My show opened well last night and the Green Dragon pub is looking great! Hopefully I'll get some good publicity pics to post here! Meanwhile I'm trying to fit in work, Good Friday service, meeting up with my parents and the second show today. Phew! I'll take that bubbly and chocolate to go, please!

Happy weekend, all!

It's Friday!!! Welcome to our Newbies !!! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings Altaira :) How wonderful that we've had so many join our merry little band! *waves HOWDY*

I LOVE THE PEEPS!! I've come thirsty today… and want to fake myself out that it really is Spring somewhere in the country… so may I have a cold glass of pink lemonade please?

I'm off to visit me Mum this weekend, so I won't be around for Easter. But I want to wish everyone a VERY WONDERFUL WEEKEND and enjoy their visit from the Bunny! I'm including my favourite set of coneys that I've already shared with Ataahua and her Easter celebration.

I also want to wish greendragon all the best during her busy weekend. I hope the production is going just as she dreamed it would (and deserves to have)!!

Cheers ya'll… and stay safe!!

Those always were my favorite.

Things this weekend should be fairly quite here - i've still got to finish unpacking from my trip, not to mention cleaning, laundry and all of that other fun stuff. Maybe squeeze in a movie. Hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Easter.

I need something strong! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's been the toughest week of my life (so far). My daughter and granddaughter moved out of my house and about two hours away last weekend and I miss my little gdtr terribly. I've been like a second mother to her since she was born and have spent most of my free time with her for the past three years. I've talked to her on the phone every day and I know she misses me, too. At least they are coming to visit on Easter and I'm getting her for the whole weekend next week but I want to see her every day.

I guess I'll have Jack Daniel's and water to cry in. Thanks for the peeps, Altaira, they cheered me up a bit.

Happy Easter weekend everyone!

Peeps, LOL! You either love 'em or can't stand 'em... [In reply to] Can't Post

... And everyone I know in RL, myself included, are in the latter category... but I love the pics! Laugh

Now two Fiesta's ago I was supposed to have my last Winter Usual, since it was so nice and warm. But now, alas, it's freezing cold again... even snowed a couple days ago! (Didn't stay though, because the ground was warm, at least.) Arrrgh! Is it spring or still winter? Weather, make up your mind! But then again, that's pretty normal here-- quite often you never know *what* it's going to do! Tongue

So, my Winter Usual again, please, Altaira! Wink


HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!

Darn it all. It sounds like a good step for your daughter and the liitle one, but that doesn't make missing each other any easier! Frown Definitely use that phone as much as you need to (same goes for her), and visit lots!

Stay warm and have a great weekend!

at the beginning of the week but now it's unseasonably cold! Our woodstove fire went out last night and even though it's been burning all morning the house is still freezing. We really try not to use our back up electric because it's so expensive.
