We celebrated the first day of Spring with an egg hunt where the Spring Hare had also left our 4-year-old daughter a basket with a bright new [to her] outfit, colorful sidewalk chalk, a chocolate bunny and some chocolate foil eggs.  The eggs that she hunted were all plastic eggs with jelly beans and malt robin's eggs inside.   I made a meal of keilbasa and eggs before we headed downtown with the chalk and three bundles of flowers that we had picked up from the...
