“She’s resting comfortably” #prime
rib roast... My wife’s out of town, so I thought I’d cook a small prime rib for Easter weekend 👍😎. She’s going into the oven soon... All seasoned up... #readytogo
Olive oil, grinded black peppercorn, rosemary, garlic (inserted into the roast), sea salt, a secret spice/seasoning mix & a touch of oregano... Starting at 450 degrees for 30 minutes, then down to 325 degrees for 13-25 more minutes per pound. #yummy #goodness #lifeisgood

Wow. This custom Harmony clutch turned out amazing! Who wouldn’t want to snuggle this buttery leather under an arm? Inside is a great pop of classic Pendleton wool used as an open pocket along with 2 card slots. This baby is sleek, classic, and can hold all your necessities.
This one is sold, but I have another available for sale on the Etsy shop usinf buffalo plaid waxed canvas inside. Look for Uptown Clutch Large 👍. Link in profile.
Today I worked from home, & for un-related reasons, had a really terrible day at it, with only myself to blame. Thankfully, my boss is very cool, & after we talked about everything that happened, she let me know that she's not upset with me & that mistakes happen.
She told me to go home early since we both had such shitty days... & then realized I was already home, haha. So I told her I'd keep working, but would crack a beer. She said that was a great idea.
So I decided to grab this glass that my amazing wife got for me, because throughout everything that happened today, I knew that even if I were to be fired (that could still come down from corporate on Monday) she would be by my side, supporting me in the job search. She's amazing, & I'm the luckiest man on earth that she chose me.
Also, this pilsner is a fantastic spreadsheet beer.

With yesterday being the nicest weather we've had since moving here we decided to go on a small road trip back west, into the Willamette National Forest for a hike.
I truly express to you in words how amazing the entirety of the scenery was. I keep going on & on about my surroundings.. it's because I can't get over it!
There was still quite a bit of snow along the park, not too suprised since we were about 2500ft up. The trail led next to the river for the majority of the hike and provided breathtaking views of 2 awesome waterfalls along the way. This river was one of the clearest bodies of water I'd ever seen to date. Melanie had to verbally fight me a few times to make sure I didn't dive in 😆.
We even found a little spot down off the path that I deemed a "spooky spot" because any picture @mlwxo
would take of either of us down there wouldnt save on her phone!
I can't wait for more!

The Chinese people have to be some the most hospitable and caring people I’ve ever met. Check out the story below for a pretty cool story from our travels.
The next couple photos are from our first couple of hours being in Lijiang. When we arrived there was some miscommunication of how we would be getting from the airport to the hotel. So here we are stranded in China not able to converse with any of the locals, no cash to take a cab (because we had to rush to catch out connecting flight in Beijing and didn’t have time to take out money) or even a Chinese address to tell the cab where to go. When all hope seemed lost this man named Mr. Chen stepped out of the crowd with a translate app asking to help, at first we were extremely hesitant thinking we were being scammed but Mr. Chen was able to walk us through the route we needed to take to get to our hotel. At this point Mr. Chen was able to barter with our American cash to get us some bus tickets to the city. For the next 3 hours Mr. Chen stayed by our side ensuring that we did not get scammed by the other busses/taxis that we had to take. On the bus rides Mr. Chen and I each had our translate apps out asking questions back and forth of what life was like in each of our countries. The last little bit of the journey to our hotel required walking about a mile into the old city and Mr. Chen yet again blew me away with his hospitality refused to let me pull my suitcase (last photo) because he said we looked tired and need to focus on the beauty of China ☺️. After taking all kinds of transportation and walking a few miles we arrived at our hotel thanks to Mr. Chen. Before he left we insisted that we pay him the remaining cash we had on hand and he absolutely refused. On the bus ride I remembered that Mr. Chen said he collected foreign currency and he mentioned that he did not have a $5 bill, so I reminded him and insisted that he take the money to add to his collection. Mr. Chen’s face lit up when I handed him a crisp $5 bill. We were so blessed to have met Mr. Chen, and probably would have found ourselves in some trouble if he did not come along when he did. Thank you Mr. Chen, you are truly an incredible man!☺️

Thursday, the school I teach at had our annual field trip to Fox Hollow Farm in Issaquah. —
After leaving the Turkey, I headed over to see the Emu. He was just hanging out and people were in there petting him. Once the family that was in the area with him left he came over to greet me. Another family came up and were talking about him. They reached their hands in and he was pretty friendly until he saw someone’s painted fingernails. He pecked at her nails and suddenly went running all over like a total goof ball.
I posted a very short clip in the last slide showing the end of him running around being silly. He was so cute and a lot of fun to watch!

Resurrection isn't what happened on Easter, it's what Jesus has been doing since Easter. Who are you praying for that needs resurrection in their life? We’ll be celebrating on Sunday morning. All are welcome!
