Just a blah old Wednesday

It's been a long week so far. How are things for you? I did get my sock monkey put together, but she hasn't any clothes, jewelry or facial features yet! I'll have to get on that right away.
The weather, while warmer, is grey and wet. The barometric tchanges brought me a terrible headache yesterday. Joe brought me sinus medicine, hot and sour soup and diet root beer. I feel much better today so it must have worked.
These ice cream cones are actually full of chocolate cake! I thought they looked cute. Just mix up you're favorite cake recipe and fill them 3/4 (I think a little more would be better) and bake until done. When they're cool, frost and decorate.
While visiting this blog:
I found this poster. BOY OH BOY do I need that!!! I used to think it was too much caffeine in the mornings making me all hyper, but you know what? It's not. I just need quiet and peace in the mornings and my life doesn't often allow me that gift. Maybe I need to try yoga or something...

It's been 5 long years since the war in Iraq began. I want to take a moment to thank each and every person who has served and to especially remember those who made the ultimate sacrafice. God bless you all.

I love the sock monkey!!
Can not wait to see her with a face!

I adore that poster and think I need one around here. It must be British...or, at least, it looks to be! I love that attitude!

It is gray and brown and raining and yucky here. I had to actually force my poor doggie to go out and go!

Stay warm and dry!

Very cute monkey. We have the same weather. I hear spring is coming tomorrow, yeah right. Your cupcakes look good. I hope you have a Happy Easter.

I made cupcakes like that today for my little Puddle Ducks so was tickled to see that we were baking the same thing at the same time!
Hope your weather gets better. We have warmed up here, but it's still raining to beat the band.

Two of our boys have both served in Iraq and are both scheduled to go back for their second tours this spring. Thank you for remembering them all....
