Chocolate Cake and Fence Posts

     Today is lovely day to have off.  It is the last of the fabulous February days that we will get at school, and I am trying to enjoy it entirely.  The weather is PERFECT. It is a Spring-like day to drool over.  The weather man says to expect 78 degrees!  I have the front screen door on duty while we enjoy the loveliness of an early spring day. 

     Today, I am baking a homemade chocolate cake.  I found the recipe through another fun blog, and I have been really wanting to give it a whirl!  I thought today would be the perfect day.  This afternoon, my mother is coming over to help me visualize and plan for the English garden I have been dreaming of creating since we bought the house.  I have picked out some fencing, and we are going to map out the space.  I am so excited!  She is wonderful with all things green, and I am...well...I am learning!  It will be quite the project, I am sure.  But, I am thrilled to begin.  Now...if only I can spark the same excitement in the hubs!  He says that my garden ideas just make mowing a nightmare...but I think I might can spur him on with a new weed eater surprise...or maybe a new edger. 
     So, it is off to the store for cake ingredients and coffee.  Anyone feel like putting in a fence post or two for me?
