If I knew you were coming

That's right; I'd bake a cake. So I did. Even though you are not actually coming. Here is the cake , in all it's glorious, highly-caloric scrumptiousness. It only takes two days to make and three years of strenuous cardio to work off. Perfect. It is called "Put the Lime in the Coconut Cake" . I wish I would have made it this weekend instead as Ashley, Josiah's girlfriend, is coming up because he is in a wedding. And needed a date. :-) So, hurray! We get to visit with our favorite Idaho/Utah girl.

Feel free to stop by for a bite of cake if you are nearby, as Rod and I are determined to eat it for every meal until it is gone or Jesus comes back. One more reason to pray for His quick return.

Spring is trying to emerge here, so that means Rod and I rush out and buy all the fruit trees and bushes and vegetable seeds and plants we can find. Even though it is 20 degrees in the morning and we'll likely murder anything we plant. Here is Rod planting the newest members of the family, Blu-ray and Duke, both types of blueberries.

Yes, this is, in fact, snow on the ground. But we are from hardy peasant stock and digging deep holes in frozen ground doesn't deter us. (by "us" I mean Rod. Just so we're square.)

Speaking of Rod, I was absolutely delighted yesterday when he received a package from Cabela's, the Outdoorman's Valhalla. It contained a backpack, camouflage, of course. It is comfortably padded, and has a place to carry water and drink from it. Kinda like a giant sippy cup. It is camouflage(the importance of this feature cannot be overstated) which goes with everything and it says "Cabela's" on it in big letters just in case the odd mule deer can read, or the other hunters need to stop their stalking and rush to Nebraska and pick up one of these babies.


The price tag was $109.00. WAY more than "THE SANDALS."

I'm just sayin'.

Needless to say, I am doing the happy dance, wearing THE SANDALS.
