Friday the 13th

Really, there's nothing scary about Friday the 13th.  It means nothing that one of my staff members is out, getting ready to take his daughter to college.  And another staff member is out because she found out last night that she has jury duty today.  And another staff member is out because she broke her toe last night.  And another staff member is out on a camping trip.

I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with the fact that it's the 13th day of the month...and it's also a Friday.

So...that leaves me and two other co-workers to tackle all the crazy things that come up.  It helped that one of my peeps brought in a Tastefully Simple Almond Pound Cake to share with us.'s really good.  She's having a party and surprised us with a tasty sample today.  Thanks Kerry!

Here's what's left of the cake:

Enjoy your weekend bloggers!

P.S.  Here's an almond pound cake recipe I found online.  I'm going to try it this weekend.

Happy Friday!

Hey bloggers!  Another week has flown by.

Still haven't made anything, but I did make a trip to the thrift shop today and found a great deal on some good-looking fabric.  A big bag of it for just $2.19.  Some of it looks VERY promising.  I'm seeing tissue covers, key fobs and lanyards in my future.  Stay tuned.  (But please don't hold your breath, okay?)

While you're waiting (ahem) I thought I'd share four of my summer time favorites.

My two favorite kids and my two favorite veggies.   My youngest son looks like he's being attacked by the Killer Tomato plants....honestly, they have gone crazy with all the rain and humidity we've had.  Typical weather here in Indiana...what can I say?  Now...if all those hundreds of little gems would ripen, we'd have a heyday (and a tummy ache too).

Enjoy your weekend!
