Father's Day was a nice day at our house. Two thirds of the brood was here and we received exciting news!
W4D (aka Dadder) was gifted with his favorite things, we had a fun time in/by the pool and grill and it didn't even rain. Dinner was excellent and I was pleased to see everyone had huge appetites.
Kaitlin baked a cake. This is a good thing for The Twerp likes to bake and I abhor baking for the most part. It just isn't fun to have to measure ingredients. Baking stifles my creativity. I don't like anyone telling me how to cook or how much baking powder to use. Baking is too methodical for my creative spirit. Decorating baked goods or finding new ways to present baked goods is fun but all that measuring, stirring and waiting is not my forte. Thank goodness, Kaitlin takes after her grandmothers.
I loved the combination of yellow cake, chocolate icing and fresh blueberries. Yummy!
Very creative, Kaitlin. Thank you!
Speaking of grandmothers, I am going to be a Gram! Michael, one of our two, previously confirmed middle-aged, bachelor sons, and his lovely fiancee' Leslie, are getting married on September 24th. She has an adorable toddler, two and a half year old Andrew, so I get a ready-made grandson! He's smart as a whip, very well-behaved and a delight. Plus, since both Mike and Leslie are 35, they are eager to add a new baby to their new family so this time next year, I will likely have two grandbabies. How exciting is that? Wow!
DH is in Orlando again this week. I forgot to ask if he is giving or receiving meetings this trip. I have promised myself to be good, walk a lot on the treadmill, work hard and get lots of updates done in his absence. It's balmy and breezy here and not at all hot this afternoon I think I might be able to bear summer after all if it never got above 82 degrees and the cool breeze like today always blew out of the north.
In addition to working long and hard ::sigh:: this week, I will also be watching the College World Series Baseball finals. GATORS everywhere and especially in here Gainesville are so excited about the possibilites. It's our very own Field of Dreams in Omaha.
