Once again, it’s Sunday, but not just any plain Jane old Sunday. Today is the wonderful, fabulous Cindy‘s birthday! Whoo hoo and happy birthday Cindy. One of these years I hope to eat cake with you in person.
I had every intention of exercising today. My co-workers talk about going to Zumba classes and doing other health-minded activities. They look great, while my arse continues to take up more and more of the chair. Unfortunately, the only part of me that got a workout was my pancreas. I baked in hopes that we’d have some take-and-go breakfast foods and lunch desserts for the next week.
As usual, everyone picks and nibbles until his/her/her/her/her eyes glaze over in a sugary stupor and not much is left for the intended meals. At least I was civilized enough to use a plate and fork!
The Kaliedoscope silk hankies from Cabin Cove Mercantile have been spun into singles (see above). The link actually shows silk caps, but the colorway is the same.
Last week there was a recognition night for A1’s JV Cheer Squad. It was held at one of the other parents’ homes. While there, their kitty, Fred, made himself familiar with me, my purse and my knitting bag.
He was utterly charming! At one point I heard my beloved first-born tell a friend, “I told you she was going to be The Cat Lady!” Embarrassing your children in public is a parenting delight I truly savor. It’s Karmic payback for all of those sleepless nights spent driving around the block listening to Linda Ronstadt singing lullabies, while hoping she’d finally fall asleep.
We don’t watch the Super Bowl here, as we aren’t big professional sports fans. Because so many people will be glued to their television sets, taking advantage of deserted grocery stores sounds like a great idea. After the morning’s baking stint we’re out of eggs, baking powder and the sugar bin is almost empty. If I push the cart fast enough and squat to pick up heavy items does that count as a workout? Cheers all!
ps, my DH went to the store for me. I may try doing jumping jacks while changing the sheets.
