Summer fun.

Life has been filled to overflowing! Blogging has been hit and miss these days. We’re leaving this morning for the weekend but I thought I should at least share a few pictures of what’s been going on.

There has been so much more going on.  That’s all there’s time for though.  Will be leaving here soon.  Have a jolly weekend you all! 

And again, I apologise for the lack of blogging on my part. *smile*

I have been knitting ALL day.

(no joke)

My fingers are hurting.

I have to be done by Saturday.

I sure hope it all turns out nice. I started knitting yesterday afternoon. (when I realized fair entries are due this weekend) So far I have finished a cupcake, a teapot, and I just have to put a handle on my teacup. I have left to knit: one teacup, one cupcake, and possibly (if there’s time) two saucers, one sugar bowl with lid, a few sugar cubes, and a teabag.

Oh boy.

Back to my knitting….

Cake….for whose birthday?


The birthday cake.

     Yes, I finally baked that cake I had been meaning to. I baked it here this morning and decorated it at at Alyssas’ house. I put candles on it and let the (closer than not) birthday girl blow them out. We ate cake for lunch.


     I think it was the first cake I had ever really decorated. It wasn’t even anyones birthday either. It was Alyssas’ un-birthday, I guess.

     The Z is not my friend anymore. Yesterday was the first time I had ever considered selling him. So sad. Mama is making stuffing for our roast chicken dinner. It smells so good! I believe it is one of my favourite things.

     ♥ Go bake a cake! ♥

     I woke up this morning and I was cold!  Compared to last Wednesday it is freezing.  Last Wednesday at the zoo was the hottest day I can remember.  The zoo was fun though.  The ice cream cones melted…very fast.  Today is pretty chilly.  I don’t know why I am drinking a ‘creamsicle’ on ice.  They are quite delicious- Orange Juice, Cream, and a splash of Vanilla – Yummo!

     Saturday we went to The Village Theatre and saw Showboat.  I got shivers when ‘Joe’ sang Old Man River.  It was wonderful.  And for days I was singing ” …fish gonna swim, birds gonna fly…can’t help lovin’ that man of mine…” .  I love going to the plays.  Meet Me In St. Louis is coming up next season at The Village and White Christmas is going to be at The 5th Avenue this winter.  I kinda doubt I’ll get to see them but they sound fun.

     I’m trying to learn French… it’s not coming so well.  I’ve wanted to learn for so long and I’m finally setting down to it.  We’ll see how it goes.  I’m sure it’ll take quite some time.

     My sisters’ birthday was July 29th and I really wanted to bake her a birthday cake.  It was too hot to turn the ovens on and I never did it.  Now I really want to bake one…and decorate one.  I don’t want to have to eat the whole thing myself though.  Oh dear… such a dilemma.

     A votre santé!
