We made a 'doggie door' in our scrren door a few years ago. We have to change th screen flap every year, but that is better than the whole screen.

I thought about getting pet screen. I can't remember for sure why I didn't get it. I bought it about two years ago - I procrastinate, as you can tell. I think the pet screen cost three or four times as much as the regular kind. I remember talking to the guy at the store and he may have recommended a heavy duty screen as being as good as the pet screen for much less.

I'm looking over the grocery store ads before I go shopping. I am also looking for a cup of ice café au lait that I misplaced. I remember picking it up to go look at the ads, but I don't remember putting it down. I made another cup, so it should show up soon. Back to the ads now.

Andy, I am about to start making a Lemon Cake

Mine is a Lemon Yoghurt Cake

I am making a nice Lemon frosting for mine...are you making a frosting/icing or making a syrup?

My lemon cake came from Alix. Her recipe is great. You can find it here: Lemon cake

The cake comes with a sort of glaze. Dissolve sugar in lemon juice, poke holes in the cake when done and still hot then pour the juice over the surface and let it soak in.

PS: I doubled the zest for the cake and increased the lemon juice and sugar for the drizzle each by 50% as I am a lemon freak.

Survived the second day of back to work after having some summer off. I'm not nearly as exhausted as I was yesterday.
