Happy Easter to those who celebrate. In normal times I'd host a dinner or brunch but, since part of our family hasn't been eligible for vaccination yet (soon though) we will skip the family get-together for one more Easter. I was able to see (2) of my granddaughters at our house earlier in the week to give them their presents so that was a nice treat. Do you have any plans for Easter?
On the vaccination front, both my husband and I are fully vaccinated. I got my second dose of the Moderna vaccine on Friday and the only real side effect has been extreme fatigue but, of course, I just don't sleep well anymore either. Our first real restaurant dining will be in early May for our anniversary which we will be looking forward to. For those of you who are fully vaccinated, did you or your family have any side effects?
Hope you all have a great week - and now for my review of Miss Benson's Beetle which I had finished the end of March.
