Easter 2015

In between doctors' appointments and all the trouble with hubby's stone passing we decided we could not go to the beach house this Easter. This was our first Easter away from the beach house since 2006. And the weather was so good!
But still we had a great time in the city with family and friends.
So here is how we spent it.

  • Church going.


  • Meeting my nieces who were in town from Athens for an hour on their way to their village.

We only managed to walk the seafront and have a coffee and chat but it was fun!







  •  Spending Easter Sunday at my best friend Gia's house in the suburbs.

We made kokoretsi.

 The food was delicious.
 As you can see everyone is on their plate!

 I contributed with pasta salad.
That chocolate pie was divine!
 And so was the homemade strawberry cake.
We walked around in nature a bit after dinner.







 And I collected some branches for my new vase!
 And here's my friend's gifts to me.Easter bread and eggs and chocolate...
...and this great book.


  • In the evening of Easter Sunday there was the most beautiful sunset!


  • Spending Easter Monday at the seafront...

... and with the family.
Lots of food this week!


I should go on a diet all next week!

Τι υπέροχες φωτογραφίες Αριάδνη μου!!! Χαίρομαι που είχατε τόσο όμορφη παρέα το Πάσχα και περάσατε όμορφα! Ευτυχώς που το πρόβλημα υγείας πέρασε όπως είδα σε επόμενη ανάρτηση, καταλαβαίνω όμως πόσο θα ταλαιπωρηθήκατε. Πεντανόστιμα όλα τα φαγητά και τα γλυκά και η φύση πανέμορφη!! Πολύ ωραία τα δωράκια που έλαβες!! Πάντα να είστε έτσι χαρούμενοι και χαμογελαστοί και να περνάτε καταπληκτικά!! Φιλάκια πολλά!!
