Here is the BIG cake for the family reunion. I am taking a break so I can see it with fresh eyes after lunch. The candles will go on top so I don't want to add a lot more there. It is 4 layers (staggered), 4.5 pounds of icing (so far). I had... Read more
A walk in the woods.
Today was a very lovely day. It got up to 42, sunny, perhaps a bit windier than I would like, but such an improvement over the past few days. DH and I hit the woods for a nice walk on the trail.

Snow in Alabama!
I got up and put the roast in the slow cooker so I could play with the grands this afternoon instead of cooking. About 9:30 the snow started and by noon we had a inch. DH got off work about 1 and picked up the boys to spend the night. It was ... Read more
Just another one of those days
Today was another gray, rainy, cold, icky day. Went to the dentist and had my teeth cleaned this morning, DH got his braces off (sigh, I have another year). Came home and ate my low residue, bland, little lunch. Decided to load the twin quilt... Read more
Here we go again ...
Last night I got my strength training in, back still tender, but got it in. Sat on the couch waiting for DH to get home from work when it hit. My diverticulitis is flared up again. So now it is back on antibiotics and the low residue diet, wh... Read more
One down, 2 to go.
Finished the baby quilt for DHs coworker last night. Actually it is a bit big for a baby quilt, guess I should call it a youth quilt. One down.

Drinking from my saucer
Spent another day taking Aleve and applying heat to my back. Skipped Boot Camp again. Sort of feeling sorry for myself so I looked through my old e-mails. I found this one my dear Dad sent a while back. I have no idea where it originated, b... Read more

Taking an easy day.
We had the grands spend the night and they keep you hopping. Don't know if it was building the Thomas track, sitting in the floor playing games, or chasing little boys around, but I seem to have pulled something in my lower back. It has been t... Read more
