Easter 2010

We had a very low-key Easter this year, but it was also very nice. We didn't have any family or friends over, so it was just my mom, my younger sister Chandra and myself. We had a yummy dinner on both Saturday and Sunday so that I could enjoy the meal two days instead of one since I was having surgery on the following Monday.

I told my mom that the Easter Bunny better not bring me any edible treats since I'm trying hard not to put on weight! (Sometimes I ask my mom not to buy me sweets, but she does anyway because she can't resist.) However, this year she complied with my wishes and bought me a completely non-edible present. She bought me a new African Violet. I love African Violets because they have the softest leaves and the prettiest flowers. One of my friends bought me an African Violet almost 2 years ago for my 24th birthday, and I (or I should say my mom) has managed to keep it alive, and it has flourished and grown.

My mom thought my birthday Violet needed a companion, so she bought me a new African Violet for Easter. I love it! It's the perfect gift for me! Here are a few pictures of my new Violet (although, the pictures definitely don't do it justice!):

Let's hope I am able to keep Easter Vi alive as well as I've managed with the original Vi!

Beautiful! I have this thing for African Violets, especailly ones that are on sale for cheap (like $1) because they are half dead. It's like a personal challange to bring them home and bring them back to life. I enjoy them as you do!
