This season of my life is speeding by........my house is a wreck........I completely ignored Black Friday, Cyber Monday and I have no idea what to do next after a little stomach bug threw me for a loop. And I have guests coming this weekend.
Naturally I need to write a blog post while I binge watch "The Crown" (which is quite good) on Netflix. What else can I do, hopefully tomorrow I'll have some energy after work to do some actual cleaning.
Just to catch you up on the happenings, my youngest and and I visited the aquarium and watched the sharks for quite a bit.
It was relaxing to look up into the water from underneath. A nice break from the ordinary.
We came home to find two local cats up on the roof of our house. What a riot!
I think they were trying to visit The Queen since The King rarely graces the out of doors with his presence. As you can see one of them is The King's doppelganger.
We have had such a whirl with the elections, plays and musicals that there has barely been time to think. However, one Saturday while waiting for my eldest to finish rehearsals, I decided to visit a nearby church.
Welcome to Sacred Heart parish.
Let's take a walk to the Marian Gazebo, which is surrounded by rose bushes.
I was able to spend quite a bit of time here in prayer. It was so peaceful, surrounded by the scent of roses.
I made my first cake in three years. I haven't baked anything since we moved from Indiana. Graduate school, internships and work have consumed my time. But my son had a Thanksgiving Feast, and needed something fast at the last minute so.....Drowning in Caramel Cake.
Oh dear me it was delicious! One of the easiest cakes in the world....although the icing is a bit of a trick. Toss everything in the blender for 30 minutes, bake it, then cook up the icing after the cake cools.
The hardest part is not eating too much.........
