happy late birthday to me April 18, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — clutterlibrarian @ 4:33 am

Oooo, look what I got for my birthday! Isn’t it pretty?! Well, I think so. I didn’t even know I wanted one until my hubby asked me what I wanted and I blurted out, “A Kitchen Aid mixer!”. (Hmmm, maybe I should have said a Mini Cooper Clubman or a trip to Hawaii…) Well, it is a bitchin’ good mixer. I have made pizza dough and cinnamon raisin bread- both turned out really well. The massive thing can really knead that dough! I’m thinking of making brownies tomorrow. Not from the box, which would be a life time first for me. 😛

Otherwise, I am not crafting worth poo. Not blogging much either, not that it matters. What am I doing? Hmmm, I weed the gardens a bit, I clean a bit, I exercise a bit- but most of the time I get snacks for the girls and read them books. I am playing Harry Potter way to often (I would mind less if I was Hermione but my three year old always wants me to be Aunt Marge- what is up with that?!).

Today, as I ignored my daughter’s cries of “Aunt Marge! Aunt Marge!” I sat looking upward. “What are you looking at?” she asked me.
“Look up. What do you see.”
“White flowers. Tree tops. Blue sky. White clouds.”
“That’s what I am looking at. Isn’t it wonderful?”

    great mixer sis. A few of my friends just LOVE theirs, of course I’ve never heard a mixer described as “bitchin”. Brownies with no box, NO WAY!!
    Caleb stopped me from working this afternoon to stop and look at the world, well is was a lovely fat groundhog (which we all call Uncle Willy) sitting on top of the hot tub. I’m off to make cupcakes, sorry box involved.
