Cake pops and birthday parties
I have an entire day before me when there is nothing scheduled, nothing at all... except a quick trip to Menard's to return the plumbing items which were not needed. I guess that is something. But I like going to Menard's. ;)
Yes, my sinuses have been giving me problems. I have been SO nauseous with this crazy weather, not to mention my head pounding at times. Taking Benedryl all day helps a lot but can make one drowsy. The non-drowsy formula doesn't work as well for me. Christopher took two Benedryl on Tuesday evening and slept for sixteen hours, missing his Latin class!
It's not uncommon in the Midwest to have up and down temps but I don't remember the last time it was such a roller coaster ride for weeks and weeks... and weeks.
I have some writing which must be done, e-mails to answer, snail mails still waiting, soup to get started, and cup cakes (or cuppycakes as Cookie Monster calls them) to bake and practice icing with the pastry bag.
All of which need long periods of home time. It's looking like that is going to happen now... God willing and the creek don't rise! That's how I can accomplish more with a chronic illness. When I'm away from home a lot, I'm often too exhausted to even think by the time I get back and I'm afraid a blog post would look something like... io#rhi opa*etel.
Birthdays were always a big thing at our home but Stephanie surpassed my efforts long ago. Some readers know she has a degree in Interior Design from the University. I love how she uses her God given talents to make her home a special place to live (and visit!).
In her post, she shares about Elisabeth's party but also what she has learned about making cake pops... here. I wish I had been there!
