The blue is dyed overnight soaked in vinegar and red cabbage. The yellow took just an hour or so in tumeric and vinegar. Both substances were boiled first before the soaking. And there is one brown egg there for good measure (the others were white eggs pre-dye). The cracks, which I like, are (I believe) due to the fact that so long in the vinegar weakens the shells. And Mike took them out of the dye with tongs instead of a spoon. Which led to a conversation. After Easter Vigil Mass. That did not go well. And led to his doing the dishes and my pouting upstairs.
Then of course I realized I was NOT SUCCEEDING AT ALL and let it go. I got some sleep and Sunday went reasonably well.
Next year? Must dye eggs Thursday. Everything falls apart starting Thursday night. As well it should.
