It's another fun Monday!!

Cake
A soft, sweet food. Find 'cake' in your space today.


This is a lovely cake we recenly devoured. Mmm Mmm Mmm, I LOVES me some buttercream frosting.

Pretty boring weekend. Poor Scott spent 2 whole days upstairs replacing a vanity and sink in one of the bathrooms and then taking off shower doors and replacing them with a shower curtain. It looks sooo much better. I hate shower doors...all the ick that accumulates on them...and we have such hard water there are always water spots and mineral deposits to scrub off.
I went shopping for some new clothes. Bought a cute little skirt to wear to work today. I was going to wash it and found that they hadn't removed the security button. gggrrr...I was trying to figure out how to use it as an accessory, but I just don't think I can pull it off. So...back in the bag it goes and I'll have to take it back tonght. I think they should give me some sort of discount for having to made a special trip just to wag it back to the store. Yeah, that'll happen.
I think I must have have a spell put on me yesterday. Everything I did ended up wrong or messed up. I went grocery shopping and the checker dropped a big o' jar of pickles on my foot. Glass flew everywhere and I was certain she had lobbed off a coupla toes. I was fine. Just smelled of dill pickles all the way home. No discount there either I might add. Then, I was making some chocolate chip cookies....now, I can make those in a COMA I've made them so many times. But not last night. Too much butter or not enough flour. Either way, they looked more like wafer cookies with bumps than anything else. The kids say they tasted ok, but I think they were just trying to be nice.
Well, this is nice. I got up early to make brownies to take to work and my oven has decided to do what it's been doing off and on for the past couple of weeks....it's not heating properly. Sooo, I have a pile of warm chocolate goo in the oven . Fabulous. It's a gas oven, I don't get it. ggggrrr. Soo...I guess I'll just get ready for work, not wearing my cute new skirt and not taking in brownies. Our cholesterol levels will thank me for that.

That cake looks so delicious - fantastically decorated. Shame about the security tag on the skirt - what a nuisance.
