Happy Birthday, Dear Teesie!

Today we are going to celebrate dear Teesie’s 20th birthday.

In preparation for the festivities, Reb and I decided we needed a few ingredients from the store, such as unsweetened chocolate, to make the Sour Cream Chocolate Cake that Kayla requested for her special dessert. As we were running our errands, I realized that the twinge I felt in my back this morning was NOT going to go away, but was rather getting worse the longer I stayed out.

When we arrived back home, the girls brought in all the groceries and put them away while I made my way, slowly and carefully, to the foam mat that Kayla laid out on the living room floor so that I could ease me poor achin’ back. Rebecca then proceeded to bake the cake (Thank you, Dearie!).

Then, dedicated blogger that I am (silly one that I am), I slowly and carefully moved myself on over to the office so that I could do my promised daily blog post.

One nice thing about needing to stay (mostly) supine is that I am finally reading a book that was highly recommended to me by the children: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. It would be a really good idea to read this book before its movie version is released, because, in my opinion, books are always better than movies, and I don’t want to form any false impressions of the book from seeing the movie first.

I believe Kayla is going to be preparing her own birthday dinner, with Lydia’s assistance. They’re planning on making some homemade pizza (yummers!), and serving a green salad with that. Guess I’ll have to wait until Monday to bake bread (sigh).

I wish for you a blessed Lord’s Day tomorrow. Now, I think I’ll get back to my book.

    Sounds like an uber yummy cake!! Had Cadety made it before? I’d ask for the recipe, but my baking ALWAYS flops.

    I wonder if something is wrong with your oven’s thermostat? That could surely mess up your baking, but wouldn’t be too much of a problem with casseroles.
    I don’t think Cadety had tried the recipe before. It turned out deliciously. 🙂 She’s completed a Foods class at the high school and done some baking in that class, too.
