Pretty in Pink….

So my darling niece M just turned 26…and she has wanted a Barbie cake for as long as I can remember.  No one ever got her one.  So I decided that this year she would get her cake…and she can eat it too! ha ha ha

It’s just a plain yellow cake with chocolate icing, covered in white fondant.  I brushed on edible pink glitter and made polka dots from flattened jube jubes, added some silver dragees and ta da!

I hope it makes her day!



Found – One Kitty….

Last night while grilling some steaks, I heard a mewling cry down below the balcony.  I went to investigate, because I knew that one of the kids in the complex had lost his kitty.  When I got down there, I found this handsome devil; who is, unfortunately, not the missing kitty.

This little guy flung himself at me, and when I picked him up, he snuggled in, purring loudly.  I put him back down on the ground and he wrapped himself around my feet.  He has no collar and isn’t neutered; he can’t be more than a year old.  He is such a lovey-dovey boy that he must belong to someone!  I just have to find them!

As much as I would love to keep him, we just can’t take in another cat.  We already have five!!!!!

So if I can’t find the owner, I need to find someone else who will give him a forever home……

Long Weekend!!

It’s a long weekend this weekend, and even if we are expecting rain, I’m still looking forward to an extra day off!

In Ontario,the holiday Monday is generally known as Simcoe Day, in honour of the first Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada.    However, in many municipalities, the holiday is named for local historical figures.  Here in Guelph, we celebrate John Galt Day.

I may take in some of the festivities downtown at our newly renovated Market Square, buuuuuuut…… if it’s as stinky hot as they are predicting, I may just spend the day by my pool.

Monday is looking to be one stellar holiday Monday!  Sunny and hot.  I’ll be q’ing it at the Parental Units visiting with K, J & Wee E.  I can hardly wait to give wee E a cuddle and pinch those shmoooshable cheeks!
So, to everyone – Have a happy holiday weekend!
