Kids, fleas and baseball

Olivia is finally home for the rest of the summer.  Just in time to help fight the flee situation in the basement.  Sunday we get to bath cats. 
I"ve heard from several people that it's a bad flea season, well when  you animals are indoor/outdoor you sometimes have problems with fleas.  It not only ridiculus but tiring. 
Something else that's tiring.... sitting outside in the heat watching baseball.  Don't get me wrong, I love to watch Dan play but it get so hot and will wear you down. Maybe I can melt away some of this fat.
I did notice tonight that my left foot is swelling up along with both ankles.  Just wondering if it this is from my weight too.  Guess I'll need to make an appointment with my doc.

Shew, it's been awhile!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything.  I've been so busy with life here lately I have had time to think let alone write.  I started another class, this time in photography.  It's an elective for my bachelors degree that meets once a week for five weeks.  I'm hoping I'll learn how to use my camera and take better pictures. 

Besides school I made another cake, actually two, for a luncheon at work.  I was going to try and make a stack barrel cake but chickened out at the last minute and just placed the layers on separate cake plates.
 They were a hit and I brought a small piece fo the chocolate and a little less that half of the vanilla home.

Here are some pics of my creations.  I loved the idea when I saw it on Texas Monkey's site.  Props for the idea. 

On the left is a vanilla cake and

On the right is a chocolate cake

Both were filled with strawberry cream.

I think I'm going to take a little break from the party planning for awhile.  I need to focus on school and my family for a little while.   see ya soon.

a two fold holiday - my husbands 50th and July 4th.

We've been working for weeks getting the house ready for the 4th of July.  Cleaning the house inside and out.  It was all worth it.  You see the 4th of July is also my husbands birthday.  We went on vacation two weeks before the party (july 3rd) and had so much to do that it was ridiculous.  But it was all worth it.  We had a great turn out and everyone enjoyed the fireworks.  Here are a few pics.

Love my family and friends.
