Without a treasure chest hidden in the basement, attic or a random beach somewhere, my treasure isn’t so much about:
- squillions in the bank, although it would be lovely,
- a yacht – oh spare me the seasickness, rogue waves, sharks and the kraken!
- the best job imaginable although this is currently debatable
- my never-to-be-revealed secret super power
it’s more about social connection with family and friends, the sharing of special moments, support when times get tough, food, laughter and fun.
For the assignment on Treasure and close-up, it was all about Easter 🙂
One such treasured gathering is the family’s annual Easter egg hunt. As in previous years it begins with the colouring of hardboiled eggs on medium heat. Patience must be your BFF because it’s time-consuming and can get messy with the dye mixture. It’s also tempting to handle eggs before they’ve dried thoroughly.
Hint 1: use white eggs to highlight colour
Hint 2: wear something other than white
Hint 3: if it’s a rainy day hide the eggs quick and hunt like it’s your last before the rain cleans the dye right off the eggs
Next year I’m reverting to colour coding the eggs, much more fun – and fair 😉
