The almond cake was still quite good without butter. It was a bit crispy on top and a bit chewier and tends to crumble a bit. It's good to know that I can make without butter if I'm out of butter or low on butter. I do prefer it with butter.

We have moved our older washing machine into the garage so that I could sweep and mop where it was, it is amazing how dirty it gets!

Been relaxing on the lounge watching some Masterchef, it is so cosy as it is quite cold outside, love it

Almond cake sounds good with or without butter.

I have had many "Duh" days. Those days do make you wonder why you keep trying.

We are going to one of our sons house for supper tonight to have our Easter meal. It is the only time this weekend we can all get together. I bought the ham ( which they are cooking) and then everyone else is bringing the rest of the food. I can't wait, we have some really good cooks in the family. :-)

Another weekend, another gun show. I'll be heading there in a couple hours.

I am waiting for my scooter to recharge. I have to make a store run. The little store that I usually go to never has anything in anymore. Too bad. I liked going there. It is nice and close. So it is up the hill to 7-11. The owner lost his Lottery privileges. He got caught buying more scratch tickets than he was selling and not paying for them. Not a smart move. Without a Lottery, you lose business real quick.

My daughter is stopping by later today. I have an olive oil bottle that she wants. I have two of them and never use either one. She starts her monthly chemo tonight.

Here, they have cracked down on lottery sellers who win too often or too much. They tell you to put your name on the lottery right away or at least before you let the store owner check if it's a winner.

Have a good time and don't buy too much.

I'm watching the girls rediscover the yard. There are four of them sunning on the deck...two checking out the dog dishes (I feed and water the dogs outside--except in the winter, I do keep a dog dish of water in the shower. And the toilet lid is ALWAYS down--I hate the thought of dogs drinking out of the toilet. Anyway, the water dish in the shower is for my safety--I do not enjoy doing the splits at my age because of dog "slime" on the floor after the dog has taken a drink. I knew a walk-in shower large enough to bath a Saint Bernard was a good idea); two hens are investigating under the willow tree, and several others are themselves sunning against the wall of their coop. A couple are taking "sand baths" in their sandpit. I could watch them all day!
