Cooking, Cleaning and Cakes!9:01 AM
Good Morning everyone, you know I realized that I hadn't done a sky photo in a long time, so here you go, a glimpse of our sunrise!
I would love to tell you all that I got a great night's sleep, but I didn't. Nicholas is having some sleep issues since we went to South Africa and it's affecting us all, especially me. I'm just hoping that when he starts Kindergarten next month, that maybe, just maybe, being tired and all he'll start sleeping not only in his own room BUT by himself without crying out for me every 2 hours. It's like having a baby in the house but without the diapers, the bottles and that yummy just bathed baby smell.
Any advice ladies? Throw it my way, at this point I could use anything just to ensure an uninterrupted night's sleep.
But moving on, I've posted two recipes over at the Food Blog. My Roast Fish and Potatoes and the Vegetable Lasagna, if it's something you're interested in, go on over and take a peek. I'll even give you pictures to tempt you, I'm a visual person and seeing something usually dictates whether I'm interested or not. Don't laugh, it's true, I do it with food, I do it with book covers and perfumes and all sorts of things...it's a sickness I tell ya.
I have a few things that I need to get to today, like putting away the 2 baskets of laundry that I ironed yesterday AND the other basket that is coming after I iron it today. What's with laundry anyway? No matter how much you think you're caught up and on top of it, it's always growing, it has a mind of it's own doesn't it?
Once I'm done with that laundry I have Today's Small Thing to do, it's all about spots, so I'm going to grab my Green Works bottle and head to the bathrooms where those little mirror spots seem to appear daily...I blame the kids, I always catch them in there playing with the water. Jasmine is usually giving her dolls a bath or Nicholas is dunking his army soldiers saying that it's the ocean and they have to make it from one side of the sink to the other. Poor things....must be hard swimming with feet that are stuck together. *snort*
If you're looking for some good reads this morning, I suggest one of your stops is over at Sheila. She's doing her Wifey Wednesday post and she's talking about How Women See It....and this quote had me literally laughing out loud.
My friend Paul Henderson, who scored the famous 1972 goal in the Canada/U.S.S.R. hockey series, uses this analogy when he speaks at marriage conferences. He can be in the living room having a rip roaring fight with his wife, but then she'll walk into the bedroom, and his hands will start to wander. All over her. And she gets mad. "What are you doing?!" She'll yell. "We're fighting!". And he'll say, "We were in the fighting room. Now we're in the sex room. So I thought you had moved on!".LOL How true is that? No really, you have to go read her entry today, it's that good.
BTW, I haven't forgotten about the South Africa Trip photos, I have so many more to share and I just haven't had the time to sit down and compose the entries. But here's a preview of what's to come tomorrow:
I have to set up my webcam today so that I can chat with my family back in South Africa, I know I know, I've been horrible about it but I honestly haven't had a chance for much around here. So Bruno, I haven't forgotten and I promise I will get it up if not today by tomorrow definitely. Love you *bats eyelashes for better effect* LOL
Well it's time to get off the computer and start the day. I need to get the steaks out for dinner, I'm making portuguese steak with fries and egg and a salad. For dessert I'm making an Orange Cake, one of my favorites. (I'll share the recipe later today)
