Carrot Dog

Spring has sprung! We’re not sure if it sprung a leak or sprung out of nowhere but here it is! With it has come spring cleaning, new buds on the trees,  and birds doing their chirping thing. Spring also brings us the holiday they call “Easter”. It involves a giant bunny who somehow took over an egg empire that was started by chickens and paints them different colors. I am assuming that this was a hostile takeover as I have never met a chicken who would ever let a bunny tell them how to lay an egg. There’s also candy and special family holiday meals.

For Easter this year each of us is in charge of one aspect of the dinner. For example, Marslean is bringing her special “carrot dogs” for us to snack on. She, like Mr. C. and I, is a vegetarian so she replaced the meat in a hot dog with a carrot. I think it’s brilliant. Mr. C. Cow thinks it’s brilliant because it’s food. It’s a win-win for Easter family dinners everywhere.

I’m planning on bringing a cake shaped like a bunny. I am thinking that, by shaping the cake like a bunny, it shall appease the great giant one that brings candy.  In all honesty I should say I am bringing a cake that I hope looks like a bunny and not like a blob with ears. If I screw up the bunny cake shape I’m afraid I will incur the wraith of the rabbit. Whatever that is.

Mr. C. Cow has been FORBIDDEN to bring anything with cud in it this year. Last Easter he brought cud casserole. For Thanksgiving he brought a cud salad. One time he brought cud dip to a party. Bishop put his foot down and asked (nicely) that Mr. C. think of a dish that did not utilize cud as an ingredient. He’s bringing a veggie tray instead.

Bishop has been busy cleaning up his shop so that I can put out a place for us to all eat. I wanted a nicely decorated table for us all to sit around. Bishop felt we should just put a piece of plywood on the saw horses and throw a tarp on it.  When I asked Bishop if he thought the pink bunny placemats matched the easter egg table cloth I wanted to use he went to make a pot of coffee. I’m thinking he’s not into cordinating table settings or decorating the shop. I do know that he makes great coffee!

I hope that, whatever you do, this upcoming Easter you do it with the ones you love. Family isn’t just about blood. It’s about those you care about the most. We hope you spend the day surrounded by your loved ones. From all of us here we wanted to say….

“Tipsy” Cerulean

Our Easter card to you was made from a photo I took in Second Life then used a photo editing program to make it look all festive.

If you don’t know what Second Life is then check them out HERE.

We also wanted to mention that we have been sending you all postcards for over a year now! (Our anniversary was last month and we totally spaced on it!) Thank you all for sticking around and enjoying this as much as we do!

Rain IS Happy

Salutations postcard people! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday. For me it’s all about spring and nature this time of year. Traveling around in a camper really allows us to find some of the most beautiful spots this world has to offer.

At times the sun gives way to clouds and the rains start coming down. It’s to be expected. It can’t be sunny all the time. The rains make the flowers bloom and the trees happy. A little rain doesn’t stop us as we turned off of the main highway and onto a path through the woods. At first we were a little worried that our camper wouldn’t fit through a canopy of trees. Mr. C. Cow offered to eat all of the leaves off the trees but I explained to him that he was not a giraffe and we safely got through with no issues.

I want to take the time to tell everyone to stop for a moment and go outside to enjoy life. (You can wait till you’re done reading our postcard!) Take the time out to go and visit a park near you. Don’t just stare at nature. Be a part of it!
