Taxi, I had to laugh out loud about you leaving the butter and almonds out of your cake. Those are my tricks, and why I don't bake. I'm just about to attempt making a pound cake and I'm nervous, but I want it to serve with fresh strawberries and whipped cream after Easter dinner. I'm also making Broccoli salad to take to my son's house but Steve is doing most of that for me. It's just a gorgeous morning, and I'm hoping to spend some porch time with my Nook book when the chores are done.
Kylie, I'm horrified to see what washers cost these days! Ykies!

I'm glad I made you laugh and I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that. The unintentional experiments.

Good luck with the pound cake.

Going to pick DD up from work the Easter baking. I will be baking a Pizzagaina (Easter Meat Pie) from my Mom's recipe and a cheesecake later for tomorrow.

Truth be told, no. Nothing at all that peaked my interest. Even my buddy said it was a waste of time, but at least he bought some ammo for his new .22. Fortunately it was close by. We should have heeded the advice of the people leaving as we were arriving.
Thanks for asking You win some...

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!
Pretty soon it will be time for them to dig up the garden again.
