the sun was shining, the house was reasonably clean, I found
a box on the dining room table containing yet another piece of
depression glass for my collection. ((big hugs)) for Farmer Dad!
He already bought me the cups and saucers and two enamelware
canisters over the weekend.(I'll have to post a pic of them)
Princess woke up in a wonderful and very loving mood.
She made me this on the computer while I showered.
I spent the morning baking a cake with my lovely daughter while answering
phone calls from loved ones. Princess did such a wonderful job with my cake...
all I did was help her read the recipe and gently guide her.
She even cracked three of the four eggs by herself..no shell!
I did the first one, she didn't tap hard enough. She also stirred
the butter and chocolate at the stove..never did that before. I was right there,
and she was very careful.The only thing I did was put the pans into and out of the oven.
and put the cake on the cake stand. The icing was not really to our taste, but we enjoyed it anyway.
While the cake cooled we had our homeschool open play date. Two new area Mom's joined us
with their children and we all had fun.We came home just before Farmer Dad who arrived moments later
(while we were icing said cake) bearing flowers.Another unheard of treat around here.
We all went to dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant and came home for cake.
More phone calls from family and friends..(thank you all.)Painted a couple of bird houses with Princess
listened to the two of them play me some music.:-)
After cake they presented me with another box with some depression glass plates!
I settled down just in time for the season opener of Deadliest Catch.
How nice of them to start the new season on my birthday!
I fell asleep the minute my head hit the pillow after such a full and wonderful day.
I am going to try to add a slideshow of the cake making.
