    HI CHRIS......JUST LOOKED AT THE EASTER CAKE.....WOW......AND I DO HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT IT.

1. WHAT IS MADIERA CAKE?

2. IF I CAN'T FIND MINI EASTER EGGS ON SALE, WHAT ELSE WORKS?

3. WHAT ARE "MALTESERS"?

4. WHAT KIND OF CHOCOLATE?

ENJOY HAVING YOU AS A SPARK FRIEND. IT'S ABOUT ALL I CAN DO TO KEEP UP WITH THE POSTINGS.

    I think this could be the devil's temptation. Boy does it look scrumptious. A 'small' piece? I don't know about that.

    GOOD JOB CHRIS; A VERY GOOD FIRST ATTEMPT. NEXT TIME THOUGH CUT BACK SLIGHTLY ON THE FILLING AND INCREASE THE CHOCOLATE. HOWEVER, IT IS YUMMY AND THE PROBLEM IS YOU FIND THAT ONE PIECE IS NEVER ENOUGH SO I LEAVE WELL ALONE. AND NO, I STILL HAVE NOT BEEN TEMPTED. I HOPE YOU ENJOYED YOUR 'LITTLE' PIECE, BUT I WOULD LOVE TOKNOW WHAT YOUR DEFINITION OF LITTLE IS, LOL.

I THINK YOU MIGHT BE GETTING REQUESTS TO MAKE THIS AGAIN AND ESPECIALLY FROM THE KIDS, LOL.

    If I wasn't allergic I probably would not have any control right now, so at least someone has control. I am about to eat 2 servings of candies. It hasn't happened yet, but I am so close.

Tore a muscle in my chest lifting the pallets a fellow gave

e me onto my trailer this morning after our Sonrise service..

my little nap. My 14 foot trailer is heaped up high so hopefully I can

put the wood or /and the pallets to use soon.

    Keep up the good work. Sorry to hear you got injured. Hope its minor and is gone in no time. Not every day is a 10. I think you're burning those calories. Did you count lifting the pallets?

Our new tiller

Saturday, April 23, 2011

We got our tiller the other day and this is a couple of pics before its too dirty to read the writing emoticon

I let each child try the tiller out. They all agreed it was fun (the first 2 minutes ). Then they all agreed they had enough (the next 2 minutes)

    Now I've used one of those and know the amount of trauma it can inflict. Admittedly easier than a hoe (done that too) but still can make hellacious blisters. I got leather work gloves to wear when I used to use it. Now I'd love to use one of the big riding ones. Talk about feeling powerful. Bandaid makes a liquid bandage for blisters if you need it. Hope you don't. Bet the kids did like it...for 2 minutes. Funny how it gets a mind of its own if you don't wrestle it into position.

I love, love, love your beautiful new machine. But, even more the beautiful black dirt looks great for planting.

vicki - no emoticon fits this one! teehee

    THAT SHOULD TAKE A LOT OF THE STRESS OFF YOUR BACK. I CAN REMEMBER YEARS AGO DOING ALL THE TILLING AND WEEDING WITH A HOE! GOOD WORKOUT THO.

HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER WITH YOUR BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.

our garden april 23 2011

First run mostly done before rain. Will retill before planting to break up the soil better.

    YEA BUT WE PUT THE WRONG ROOFING ON IT ORIGANALLY SO IT DOES NOT ALLOW THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF SUN IN...AND IT BECAME A STORAGE AREA FOR GARDENING AND OTHER TOOLS AFTER THE MISHAP. WE MOSTLY PUT OUR PLANTS STARTERS IN INSIDE WINDOWS.
