Happy Easter Week Hodgepodgers and thank you Joyce for the questions. Find Wednesday Hodgepodge here.
1.What would you say is the most difficult task when it comes to spring cleaning? Have you completed that task this year? Any plans to get it done?
I would say that the most difficult task is washing the windows and screens inside and out. We have not completed this task but we have the window washing guy coming on April 26th and I will gladly pay him to do the task.
2. Your favorite pastel color? Favorite thing you own in a pastel shade?
I really enjoy the combination of pink and green. My Moss Rose dishes by Royal Albert are a favorite thing that I own.
5. Something that makes you feel hopeful amidst all the chaos and confusion this world brings?
The message of Easter, that Jesus conquered the power of sin by His perfect sacrifice and was raised from the dead which is what makes me hopeful no matter what. I’m a sinner. Jesus died on the cross for sinners. I couldn’t pay the price for my sin but Jesus did. “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.” Even though God’s justice demands death for sin, His love provided a Savior who paid the penalty and died for sinners. Christ’s death satisfied the demands of God’s justice, and Christ’s perfect life satisfied the demands of God’s holiness, thereby enabling Him to forgive and save those who place their faith in Him.
Even in the chaos God is in control and we know the end of the story. God will bring us through any suffering we have to go through on this earth and our hope is in our eternity in heaven with Him because we put our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross.

Easter two years ago.
I’ll be gone all day today so I’ll be late in coming around to visit your Hodgepodge posts.

Hello, Have a blessed and happy Easter!
Ham and scallop potatoes are my favorites. You look cute in your Easter dress. Adorable photo of your grandchildren.. We will celebrate and see our grandsons and family on Saturday, Easter Sunday they will go to the in-laws for Easter dinner. Take care, have a wonderful day!
Such cute Easter photos!! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!!
It is such a fun way to get to know you more Ellen. Loved the photos as always. You all look adorable!
Yes, I too enjoy Eggs Benedict; didn’t even think about that one.
…your cuties are ready for Easter.
Perfect answer to question 5. Loved your vintage sibling photo. I had forgotten about white patent leather shoes!
Thank you for your #5!
I loved all the photos you shared today.
I am going to remember that cake. I bake and decorate an Easter cake each year for our family.
P.S. Easter is my favorite too.
the Easter menu sounds delicious. My brother spent a couple years in Ukraine and when he came back he talked about shashliki being a favorite dish of his. I’d almost forgotten about that. And I’d also kind of forgotten that I got a new dress for Easter every year when I was a little girl. Have a great week!
I am so thankful for our crucified and risen Savior!
Love your Easter hodgepodge. Happy and blessed Easter to you and yours! What are you serving for Easter brunch before church?
I think I will never forget my Easter dresses that were so special in so many ways! May your Easter week be filled with many blessings and peaceful reflection!
And that is the plan of salvation beautifully and completely expressed. Thank you Father for your grace. Happy Easter to you and your family.
I don’t spring clean but clean good throughout the year. I even do windows quite often.
Not having curtains it is a must. 🙂
I happen to like pink, all shades of it.
I love seeing all the old pics of children dressed up for Easter. Church has become so casual, but I still enjoy dressing up a little. I hope your brunch goes well and you have a wonderful Easter day with family.
Blessings to you and yours Ellen this Easter! Love all you answers and especially #5! Sounds like you will be busy with the brunch – don’t work too hard. Hugs …
Have a wonderful Easter. Love the photos you shared. I had written a whole paragraph and then I hit something and it went away. I did mention that I liked your teapot and that I should have shown my china. It looks like Easter, all pastel colors.
Enjoyed your answers this last week. Great photos too. That teapot is so pretty. I like those pastel colors too.
