The ice storm that came through my hometown last night couldn’t have provided a better reminder to stay flexible this Easter weekend.
As you can see, every surface is covered with about 2 cm/0.5 inches of ice. When the wind blows, the sound is eerie as the trees creak and strain under the pressure. Then suddenly there was a big CRACK sound and a whole limb came down. As the stress mounted the encased rigid branch couldn’t take anymore and it broke.
For me, Easter is a weekend that is filled with food and family dinners with all the fixin’s. For binge eaters and over-eaters, there isn’t much that creates more stress than a weekend full of food. The stress often begins days (or even weeks) before Easter (or any holiday for that matter.) Chocolate and candies show up in the stores; all of the ‘special’ foods that are only available this time of year. (Every holiday has them. And they emerge long before the actual holiday itself.) Temptation is abound.
Until next time,
Live Life. Love Food. Be Free
