April 2022 Calendar Picture

Hello everyone!

We are now in the month of April and entering Spring in my part of the world. The sun we've had the past couple of days is most welcome, as we've had a very rainy and cloudy March with very little sunlight and opportunity to go out. I hope you are all doing OK!

This month, as usual, I bring you the picture in the SF Calendar

And it is quite the lovely illustration, very colourful and perfect for Easter! We have several of the children and babies of the village having fun with chocolate eggs, as well as decorating the huge one in the center! Egbert Highbranch, the giraffe father, seems to be supervising everyone. Love the ribbons, the flowers and decorations made of fabric and the tiny baskets. A very cheery picture indeed! The colours are beautifully pastel IRL, my photo doesn't really do it justice. 

Have you managed to find all the hidden eggs? Do your Sylvanians have plans for Easter? Do tell! :D

I have not been able to do much with my Sylvanians recently because a couple of weeks ago I started working full-time for a new client in a very exciting position. I am still adapting to my new schedule and feeling a bit tired as a result, but I hope to get back on track soon, as I have plans for a story mentioning the nursery, as I mentioned in previous posts. I did get the building and the furniture I want to use out of their storage and started setting everything up, so all that's left is for me to gather enough motivation to continue! The fact that we have more hours of sunlight now will hopefully help. 

We also took Vega (our dog; not a puppy anymore, really, as she's recently turned 1!) to the vet for her sterilization surgery this past Friday, so we have been a bit worried about her and giving her lots of attention this week-end. She's doing fine, though! She doesn't seem to be in pain at all anymore and is slowly showing her playful personality again. Hopefully in just a few days she'll be 100% back to normal. 

I hope you're all doing well, stay safe and healthy and have a wonderful day!
