Quinn stories of the day...
I got home and got the report from Grandma and Grandpa...today Quinn was super-excited about his new "M'ia clothes" (tie-dye pants and shirt from flyingwolf--you can buy your own for boys and girls of all ages at britecloth.com). He was so excited that he did two extremely unusual things--he dressed himself (including pull-ups, which may be a first) and he stated that he wanted to go to the potty without prompting, and stuck with it much of the day before finally having an accident.

Needless to say prettypammie and I are very sad to have missed all this. We were out all day "kissing frogs." None turned into Princes.

Quinn was very industrious--helping Grandma pull down wall-paper and wash the car--he really liked the buffing and polishing part. He also did some chalk artistry in the back yard and playing with the little boy across the street. A very full day for the young feller--he was out cold by the time we got home.

Before we get asked again: WE HAVE NO EASTER PLANS WHATSOEVER. It's not our holiday, remember? (Heh--I know most of you know that already...I've mainly been asked umpty times by strangers in the last couple of days). For those of you who do celebrate it, I hope you have a good one.

Hugs to all!

You'll forgive my lack of sympathy over your being asked umpteen million times; you're hardly the first person in the world to experience this. People mean well; learn to deal with it.

wow! I'm so glad Quinn liked the outfit so much! :-)
Thanks for the plug. Ack. A typo on the first page. Sigh. Well, Can't fix tonight.

Noone asked me if I have plans tomorrow, but I do. Tried to tell my grandmom that our visit has nothing to do with easter. It's just the only day between now and vending starts and then school starts that I have free and I haven't seen her since, well, right before my vision went all bonkers so I convinced my sis to meet me in Reading.

Thanks for the plugs! As you know, I don't advertise enough. Mostly a time issue. Did you get any pics of the little fireball?

I'm so proud of him! Now that he can dress himself, lets see how good his taste is. :)

He may just like them because they are from M'ia, and he likes M'ia (I agree with his taste), not because the clothes themselves are cool.

I must admit, it was tempting to start handing out brochures on "the true meaning of Eostre."

The following are random websites that seem to roughly jibe with what I've seen before.

http://www.spiritofold.co.uk/wheel_eostre.html

Eostre is another name for the Spring Equinox, when day and night are of equal length. It falls on or around March 21st. Other names include Ostara and Eostar.

In Old England, the Anglo-Saxon name for April was "Eostremonath". Eostre was possibly a Goddess of the Dawn as the word "Eostre" is related to "East". As the Sun risies is the East each day and this is a time of growing light, this is very fitting. The Anglo-Saxon year consisted of two seasons - Summer and Winter. Winter began at Samhain and Summer began at Eostre

http://www.zenzibar.com/Articles/easter.asp

Easter celebrations were held hundreds of years before Christ was born as festivals of spring honoring Eostre, the great mother goddess of the Saxons. This name was fashioned after the ancient word for spring, Eastre. The goddess Ostara was the Norse equivalent whose symbols were the hare and the egg. From this comes our modern tradition of celebrating Easter with eggs and bunnies.

Heh...in my circles it's mainly referred to as Ostara, wacky neo-pagan sort that I am.
