It finally rained, we needed it bad! I'm about ready to go out and take my walk...even though my entire body is sore from cleaning the daughter's house. (She's moving into an old farmhouse that had 40+ cats inside, and the people smoked a LOT, so we had to wash the wood walls in the room they're making the den. Talk about filthy water!!) We also taped so we could paint the walls....think we're doing that this week.

Next weekend is the wedding in Stevens Point our son is the Best Man in. Can't wait, he's nervous, but hey, maybe he'll meet a nice girl and be happier again! I keep praying for him, but he's so afraid to ask anyone out it's not funny. He's afraid they'll say no and doesn't understand that's life, we've all had someone tell us no! Oh well, God knows what He's doing!

Have a wonderful week, everyone! Time for my walk.

Our daughter said they weren't doing hay today (they were to load up all the hay in their old shed and move it to the newer one, that's a LOT of hay) so we won't be going over to help with that. They're also going to paint the walls before doing the floor, I hope that turns out well for them, I'm just afraid the sanding of the floor will get on the walls, but who knows.

I need to get out there and take my walk, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Rick and his cake. (homemade angel food cake, cut in half, crushed strawberries and whipped cream in the middle, and topped with whipped cream and a few more strawberries)

I was just thinking that between now and the end of October, we only have 2 weddings, 1-50th anniversary, 1 wedding reception (not part of the 2 weddings, my sister got married in Vegas and she's having her reception back in WI), and yesterday I get an invite to a baby shower on Oct. 19. I so don't want to go, but it's a cousin of mine; heck I didn't even know she was pregnant! I don't know her that well, I mean we're not close, but still.....

So add another thing we have to attend, not looking forward to it at all. Next weekend (not tomorrow), we go up to Stevens Point for the wedding our son is Best Man in. Then the following weekend we have my sisters reception, and the following one, a 50th anniversary near Boscobel. Then the first weekend in October (my birthday, we leave), our daughter and I head down to North Carolina! It's a weekend of birthdays because my nephew, Camden's, birthday is 10/2, my sisters (Cam's mom), is 10/3, and mine is 10/4, then my brother in law (sisters husband)'s is 10/9, and their other son's bday is 10/18. (Not to mention I have an aunt born the same year as myself on 10/1; her younger sister born 10/12) We have a lot of October Birthdays.

With any luck, next year we won't have a darn thing going on, and I can enjoy life again. *LOL*

Have a great weekend, everyone! emoticon

    Lots of birthdays. Our busiest months are February and march. Enjoy them and then rest emoticon

    We have a lot of October birthdays also, five I think. As for the baby shower, could you send a small gift with your regrets? Being a busy month and what you said about not being close, that (in my humble opinion) would be appropriate. Just a thought.

Take care.

Today we celebrate 3 birthdays, my Husband, Rick; our niece, Breanne (who turns 18), and my cousin, Lenora, born on the same day and year as my husband.

It's going to be a fun day, we're taking Rick out to eat for his birthday, I finished the cake, but it doesnt' look as good as I thought it would. Oh well, as long as it tastes good.

I made an angel food cake, 2 small ones, put down one layer, put crushed strawberries in the center with a touch of whipped cream, then put the second layer of cake on and put colored whipped cream on top. I hope he likes it. We're going out to eat at Knute's tonight. It's funny, the owner of Knutes is Kerry Knutson...I have a cousin named Kerry Knutson (yep, same spelling) but they're not related. To have a guy, no, 2 guys with the name Kerry is unusual enough, but to have them both have the same last

I hope you all have a fun filled day, I'll see you tomorrow! emoticon


Trying to Understand...

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

I had clicked on one of the runners scrolling to read a sparkpage blog, because it had me a little concerned and I thought I could help. So I left a message, saying things like if you need someone to talk to, and some advice. When I went to check on how she was doing, she'd blocked me from the page.

If people don't want help, why would they post such things on the runner; I didn't say one negative things, I just don't get it. Oh well, I guess it's their loss, but at least I know I tried to help.

I had to go to the clinic today for my mammo, it went well, but for the fact I didn't have my appointment until next week. *L* But they arranged it so I went in place of someone who'd cancelled, so it actually turned out for the good!

Now this afternoon, our daughter called; they're moving into another house but the bad part is, the woman who lived there had cats in the house all the time, and the cats ruined the floor, the smell is horrible in the house, and it needs to be cleaned SO BAD!. This house was rented out by the daughter's bf's aunt, and she just made a total mess of the place, so I'm going over and help clean it. They have to replace the floor because the cats had messed in it so much! It's an old farmhouse, not real old, but old enough, and it will be beautiful, once everything's redone in it. That's where our daughter's ponies and horses are currently, which is wonderful, plus it's very close to where she got her externship, so that's another positive.

She's hoping to get moved in before October, but it's hard to tell.

Tomorrow is my husband, Rick's, birthday and I went into town and was going to buy a cake, but then I decided I'd take strawberries, crush them up, make an angel food cake, put the strawberries between the layers (I'll cut it in half), and then put whipped cream on top. I hope it turns out, since it's just a "wonder if I can do this" type thing. But I wanted it to be special for him...I hope it is.

I'll talk to you all tomorrow, have a GREAT DAY! emoticon

  What other people do/think/feel is THEIR business.

What I do/think/feel is MY business.

This little philosophy has saved me from a lot of grief in trying to figure out confusing behavior in other people.

If the person you were trying to help never responded that's her business and not your fault. "If you are standing straight don't worry if your shadow is crooked."

    I hate when someone posts on my page and they have no page to return a comment. Some new people don't realize how important that is.
Sounds like you will be buying a lot of bleach for the floors.
Your cakes sounds good to me.
