Congrats Barbara! Writing is something I wish I had the talent for.

I have 2 celebrations, #1- Savannah went back to school today & is feeling pretty good. She was still a little tired this morning but didn't want to stay home.

#2- Hubby & one of his friends took TC bass fishing last night, in all they caught 14 fish, 2 of those TC caught by himself!! He's caught fish before with help, but these 2 he did totally alone, took them off the hook & released them too. He was so happy when he got home last night that he was bubbling!

crewsk,
now this is the kind of news it's worth getting out of bed for I'm glad Savannah is feeling better, poor little girl had a rough time of it. And TC, wow, he is getting to be such a big kid He deserved that fishing trip and so did dad..They both were troupers during Savannahs illness..And mom, now you can relax a bit and just enjoy looking at your babies...

Thanks kades! It was a wonderful feeling to have both kids up & getting ready for school, even though I had to remind them to hurry it up a couple of times because I let us oversleep.

Glad that Savannah is feeling better Crewsk!

My celebration is small but worthy IMO.
I went to ballet this morning to take class. The teacher told me twice after class that she loved watching me dance.

If that isn't enough to celebrate, I donated a cake for a silent auction. It sold for $30.

I meant to post this sooner but just never got to it. I've been making the N.Y. Times bread a lot and have been using my big cast-iron skillet to bake it in. The skillet works great but it's quite heavy, so I've been grazing my area thrift stores for a suitable substitute.

Hooray!!! On Wednesday I found a 5-quart Magnalite Dutch oven (sans lid) for $1.50 at Goodwill. You can be sure I brought that baby home. I had a lid that fit so I was in business. I made the bread over the weekend using the Magnalite pot and wound up with the nicest loaf yet.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! That's my celebration.
