Wednesday Musings.

Donna and I slept in until 06:00AM and then had our coffee, Donna got all the mixers lined in row and started mixing up cakes for this week, when there are a couple of birthday’s coming up for family and friends. I love the smell of baking in the kitchen, but I know I can’t eat most of the goodies she bakes anymore. She started it out with a combination Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry cake. boy will that be nice, she did make some cupcakes in each flavor so I may steal one of those later. Since we are both off today nothing was planned, the Grands went to their Mom’s in Adam’s case and to her Dad’s in Nicole’s. Adam was here for over a week, so now he will spend the weekend with his Mom and then next week I am hoping to take them out to the Lake camping. The house sure quiets down without any kid’s and dogs running back and forth.

Not much to report it’s back up in to the middle 100’s for this area, supposed to stay that way for the next week so camping should be fine, just a day where it says chance of  a thunderstorm, but that can happen anytime in the summer.

Hope the holiday went fine for all. be safe out there. Sam & Donna……


  1. You guys really did sleep in. Nice to have a day to yourselves especially with the smell of baking going on.

  2. Ewwww too hot for baking!

    We barely managed to whip up a supper on the stove, just stir fry chicken and rice. That was enough cooking and the AC is just starting to cool us down now after that.

  3. hope the two of you are staying cool!...nice to have a day off together!!

  4. Sometimes a little time together alone is good,,,,, Sounds like you had a good one. We may actually get a rain today, it is cloudy this morning for the first time in weeks.....
    So keep your fingers crossed, we need some rain bad!!

  5. I am very fortunate that Kelly doesn't bake because for sure I would probably weigh about 2,000 pounds by now. I don't have a lot of self control for freshly baked things coming out of the oven & just can't seem to stop myself from wolfing down all the great tasting goodies. Trying to keep my weight down this past 10 years has really been a tough struggle.

  6. nice to have time off together!!!! and yes you did sleep in!!! Way to go

  7. That Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry cake sounds delicious. Glad that you and Donna had a little down time together. Enjoy your camping trip next week with the grands. Have a Great Friday.
