The Easter Bunny is an Essential Worker–the Tooth Fairy Too!

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern offered reassurances to the children of New Zealand, announcing that the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy had been designated essential workers. She cautioned that, because of distancing rules, “the Easter bunny might not make it everywhere this year.”~~New York Times

When my son was in kindergarten, I was on-call for helping out with any activities the kids were involved in. So I got a call to help hide Easter eggs at the elementary school. Some of his classmates saw me and said, “Your mom’s here hiding Easter eggs!”

There was Blaine with most of the class watching at the window, their noses and hands pressed against the glass as I “hid” the eggs. Which meant just scattering them all over the freshly mowed grass. When I picked him up from school that afternoon, he was so excited. I had helped the iguanas hide the Easter eggs.

“Iguanas?”

“Yes, they were in charge of laying the eggs.”

“Kiwanis?”

“No, iguanas, Mommy. They lay eggs.”

So that year I helped the iguanas put out the Easter eggs. They might not be essential workers this year. Then again, there isn’t any school.

I did my walk today, more people out than usual. I went to the grocery store on Sunday, so I’m home for two weeks, just in case I picked up anything while out. Three weeks if I can hold out that long.

Hope you all are doing well. Breathe in, breathe out (in isolation), stay safe.

Back to the Teddy Bears

St. Patrick’s Day Bear

I just finished one and have to run and ship it today for a newborn, and forgot to take a picture.

I’ve been writing 3,000 words per day on Flight of the White Wolf, so for my break, I had to run into town and get groceries (the fridge was totally bare–and worse, I haven’t had potatoes for a week–that’s the Irish in me talking, and I HAVE to have my potatoes.)

I also went to Old Town Spring for a lunch with ladies, and I wasn’t going to go shopping, I wasn’t. No. Way. *sigh* But I drove all the way down there, and what the heck, I needed to walk all the way back to my car–couldn’t find the cafe, so finally just parked and used my GPS while I was walking. That meant it was a long distance from the car, and a couple of the shops begged me to come and see what they had.  I got my exercise in also.

And found darling props for my Easter bears and a bunny. I also found a book for the baby coming up. You use a flashlight to shine through the circles on the page to see what you can see. Wow, what will they think of next?

Okay, garbage is out. I need to get to work on the story, and then it’s time for running to the post office. 🙂  Oh, and I got a bunch of tulips for the backyard, though now I’m hearing you have to dig them up. Say what? But they were only a $1 for a bag of 10, so I’ll see how they do and hopefully be able to take lots of pretty pictures. I still have about 20 to plant.

And that’s it for chatting. Need to get to work writing! I’ve learned that the story absolutely, unequivocally, without doubt, will not write itself.

Make someone’s day and give them a hug, or make them suspicious. 🙂
