Goodnight and I spent most of our day sitting with a relative in hospice. We’ve been going every weekend since she got out of ICU in March.
I made the cake I had planned and it looked cheery enough to share, so I prepared it for the long drive.
I explained the cake in a previous post, but it was in memory of the little bunny babies we had in my half-barrel planter last May. The Kit Kat chocolate strips worked very well to build the planter on top of the cake. Because I also have a 4×4 post embedded in the barrel that is my flagpole, I had Goodnight make an Easter flag to go atop the cake. The photo below shows the cake from the top so you can see how the Kit Kat candy was used as the barrel staves.
I had knitted a prayer shawl for my relative and took it to her today. She has been looking very fragile on most of my visits, but today she sat up and wanted to get outside in her wheelchair for some fresh air. Her daughter covered her with the prayer shawl.
After a long stroll around the complex, we sat outdoors in a courtyard for over an hour looking at old photos. This relative knew my grandmother. My grandma was her aunt, so I got to see some photos I had never seen before.
My relative also had funeral cards for my great-grandfather and two of his brothers, none of which I had seen before. It was like a family history lesson to look at the cards.
It was a lovely Easter, really. I hope you had something in your Easter that made it lovely, too.
