Good Morning everyone. I woke up to finding our local newspaper slid under my door. We have a Charter School here in Eastie that wants to build a high school. Right now they are occupying two separate locations for their students in grades 1-8. You can't find a better school anywhere. The kids in this school come out #1 in the State for the MCAS tests each year. You know how kids at the end of the day are yelling and running around when they get out? Not these kids. They are so polite. These kids are a definite asset to this community. They will be building right next to the brand spanking new library we got this year.
Last year they bought a Catholic school that had been closed and completely renovated it for their middle school kids. It is right around the corner from the building where I live.
I got a call from Poo already this morning checking up on me. It's a good thing I don't have anything planned that would not be in my best interest. I would never get away with it.
Tonight Doc Martin is on. Spike makes it here every Wednesday, rain or shine to watch it with me. I can't wait until the new season starts. The two of us sit roaring our heads off. We are both in agreement that we need someone like him in our family.
Today I am going to get all the dry ingredients measured out for the chocolate cake. And I have decided to make it a poke cake with chocolate syrup in the center. I will also have to make the syrup today. I have a couple of tiny funnels that will work perfectly to pour the syrup into the holes. And then there are the holly leaves that need to be made from royal icing. Those are fun to make. And yes, I will take pictures.
Ta ta for now, I am off to the kitchen to get busy!
