At least the car crash was on the way in to servicing, not right after. I know I would be cursing extra if I had just paid for maintenance.

Excellent advice buckytom. Andy you never know what injuries you may have inside.

Anytime someone is in a car accident, a checkup should be included as "necessary in your insurance policy. Otherwise the policy can be cancelled by the company."

Always look after yourself first.

I am exhausted. I breaded the two Japanese eggplants and the big Italian one I had. I was on my feet the whole time. But I got smart. I used my Fry Daddy instead of doing it in a frying pan and having to flip every piece. So it got deep fried. But I did go through a lot of paper towels. And I left the kitchen spotless including my Fry Daddy.

Tomorrow I have three pork chops that have been marinating in a Soy Sauce with Worstershire Sauce and seasonings. Mashed potatoes with them and some veggie.

I was doing some surveys and noticed that I made $40. So I cashed out and it went into my PayPal. That will pay one bill off. Yea! I know I will get more to do tonight, but I am just too tired. By the end of this upcoming week, I will have made another $30. Just for answering questions.

Good night everyone. Here's hoping I can fall asleep fast.

Thumbs up

Starting my day looking through Facebook when I came across this:

https://www.facebook.com/justaguywhofliesrescue/

I immediately thought of our very own Souschef and wanted to share this with my forum friends..

There are moments when I feel blessed to see the good people do.. This is one of those moments..

Spending another fine evening watching the dog wander around the back yard. Perfect temperature. Frogs and crickets talking. A fine evening for sure.

We spent time with family from out of town, ate too much, and generally had a "grand ole time" last night. Being lazy and doing a whole lot of nothing today that I don't absolutely have to.

Following through on a threat I made earlier this week after grocery shopping. I'd brought home all sorts of fresh berries and proclaimed they would become a mixed berry pie. The berries have been cooked, the crust is baking and pretty soon the refrigerator will receive the finished pie. With any luck, we'll have pie for dessert tonight.

Yum, sounds great, Katie!

For the first time in over a year, I am in full throttle cake mode!

A woman at the dog park is having her 30th birthday and wants a Louis Vuitton cake but no retail bakeries will do it because of the copyright. I don't have a license anymore so don't mind making it. I was even able to find some cutters and a stencil.

My young next door neighbour is coming over today to help with fondant kneading and fine detail work.

I decided that it was Clean out the Fruit Drawers day. Got out my trusty Nesco, and threw in a bunch of halved and pitted cherries, some tired grapes, a couple of elderly peaches, any other bits and pieces of whatever other fruit I found, some sugar, lime juice, and a vanilla bean. This will cook on low to medium low. We'll see what I end up with.
