Up here, one thing I've noticed is that you really do need to find your own reasons to celebrate. You've gotta find a reason to make things special. Otherwise the monotony would drive you batty. So, to celebrate the first day of spring, I decided to dye some easter eggs. This is the first time I've made my own dye rather than using the little pellets that come in the kits with paper egg stands to dry them on. It's stupid easy, I don't know why people bother to buy dye, besides not knowing they can do the same themselves. It's just water, with drops of food colouring, and a table spoon of vinegar to help the colours set. Easy!
