The napping.

It is catching.

June 29

As far back as I can remember, my mom catered weddings.

As far back as I can remember, I got to lick beaters.

Cake batter beaters

Icing beaters.

I heart licking beaters.

And as far back as I can remember, the Mother would admonish Sister and I “Don’t run in the house, the cake will fall.”

And look something like this.

I didn’t run through the house, but when I ‘foil tented’ them, the rack jiggled…which has the same effect as running through the house.

Reminding me that the Mother knows what she is talking about.

Fortunately it doesn’t affect the taste.

These Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes that Wendy of Pink Stripes picked for today’s TWD taste like a sugar cookie that has been dunked in booze.

In other words, it is gooooooood.

Very good.

Go check out Wendy’s blog and get the recipe.

You can make it without the booze and it will still be fabulous.

This past week and a half has been rather busy.

To complicate matters, the DVR decided to record only sound and no picture.

I heart my DVR.

I didn’t know just how addicted I was to it, till it decided to give up on our relationship.

When the new DVR arrived, I put the boy to work installing it, because all those wires going to different places make me just a little woozy.

Just to keep things honest around here I’m showing you evidence of my obsession.

Thankfully, none of these shows have been canceled.

But some of my new favorite shows have.

LOST….I will miss you forever.

And Numb3rs….I could just cry because you have been canceled.

I love me some good food TV too.

Mercy…GONE.

Will Veronica get back with her husband?  Will Sonia get in trouble for killing that woman?  Will Chloe fall for the new guy?

I’ll never know now.

Why yes.

I do watch Soap Operas.

I do it solely for the fashion.

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

I love the Undercover Boss.

I wish they would come to our Stuffmart.   Things might change for the better.

Miami Medical is gone too.

I loved this show.

Dear TV

Please quit canceling shows I love.

53.

I have 53 shows set to record?

Seriously?!?!?!

Obsess much?

20 years ago, I was in labor for my boy.

Happy Birthday Sunshine!!!

Today is Friday, Internet and I am nosy.

  1. You’re late and you have to run out the door right now! Before dashing out, what do you grab to wolf down on your way?
  2. What’s a popular breakfast you dislike?
  3. You’re going out for breakfast anywhere you want, and someone else is treating! Where do you go and what do you order?
  4. What do you have when you need a simple, healthy (or healthy-ish, for those of you who just don’t do healthy!) breakfast?
  5. You’ve been invited to a breakfast potluck. What are you most likely to bring?

You’re late and you have to run out the door right now! Before dashing out, what do you grab to wolf down on your way?

A poptart

What’s a popular breakfast you dislike?

Fruit topping on pancakes

You’re going out for breakfast anywhere you want, and someone else is treating! Where do you go and what do you order?

Hmmm….A local place here in town called The Mill.   I would get pancakes, hashbrowns with onions in them, and sausage patties.

What do you have when you need a simple, healthy (or healthy-ish, for those of you who just don’t do healthy!) breakfast?

Healthy???   Uhhh….errrrrr…..eggs?  oatmeal?

You’ve been invited to a breakfast potluck. What are you most likely to bring?

Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.   YUM!

Dear Firefox,

Thank you for fixing yourself so quickly.

Signed,

change drives me insane

I have had a bunch of loose jewels laying around for some time, so for our 18th wedding Anniversary, Superman said “how about a ring” and me being the Frugal Princess that I am, I suggested that we use all the loose stones that we had.

Away we went to The House of G. A. Fisher to see what could be done.

I have been waiting since April for a box.

A box holding the ring that I designed.

A box holding this.

It arrived last night.

Superman, you have outdone yourself.

Internet, I am typing to you today from Internet Explorer.

Dear Firefox,

Please fix whatever issue you have and do it quickly.  IE is killing me here!

Signed,

I don’t like change

I had some brilliant things to say, but all this fiddlefarting around with IE this morning has cause my brain to explode.

And the exploding brain has led to me not feeding the cats or the dog, which has led to some serious meowing, and pleading eyes, which has seriously put me behind in my daily duties.

I haven’t even gotten on Facebook yet.

Oh.  The horror!

I did, however, manage to eat some cereal, clean 2 inches of dust out of a box fan, and eat 3 bites of a Scrumdiddlyumptious bar.

Priorties.   It is all about priorties.
