A note that I got today from the bride and groom I catered for on Saturday. They are on their honeymoon but emailed me this morning to tell me that the care package I packed for them (peppermint patties, Chocolate strawberries, meringue sandwiches (some with lemon, some with chocolate), three kinds of Nanaimo bars, brownies with ganach and brie baked in phyllo with ginger marmalade) was their supper on their wedding night! They have given me a standing order for strawberries and peppermints each year on their anniversary for the next 10 years!

Well now I've gone and done it!

Yesterday during my regular shopping trip I stopped at the Goodwill Thrift Store and saw a kitty play "tower." It was a cylinder about 2-feet tall on a square base. The whole thing was covered in carpet and, at the top of the cylinder, there was a spring with a fuzzy ball at the end of it.

Oh, boy, 2+ feet of pure kitty play heaven. Price? $1.50. How could I NOT buy it for...Tumble?! The money changed hands and I put it in the car.

I haven't been disappointed. Tumble has played himself silly with it, as have Miss Rodeo, Tween and Sally. It's been knocked over a gazillion times already, which I fully expected. When I got up this morning and entered the family room, it was nowhere near where it was when I went to bed. Someone had a party during the night.

Can't wait for tonight's action!!!

someone telling a story about how she tried to grind nuts in a KA and they turned into cement. her parting line was:

"Moral of the story: Don't put your nuts in the meat grinder."

I went to Costco last night to pick up a boat load of groceries for tomorrow's wedding. I was able to deliver most of it right to the church and just came home with a box containing 4 litres of milk, a large container of canola oil and some chicken broth.

Dad and Tony met me at the door to see if they could help me unload and I showed my box saying "$500 sure doesn't buy much anymore"! We all had a good smile and a chuckle.

Reading the Note to Uncle Bob Thread. LPBeier has me snorting my coffee and giggling like a teenager this morning.
