Today my sofa is to be delivered.  I am hoping for the best.  I am ready for it, the spot all ready to go.  I thought D#1 was coming this weekend but it looks now like that has been postponed in favor of going home.  Poor thing is gone so much I certainly understand.

I have to bake a triple chocolate cake today for my old boss's birthday and take it to him on Saturday.  I have baked him a birthday cake since 1996, his 50th when we filled the offices with black balloons and the elevators with black stuff too.  There were a few years when Sarge was so sick that I didn't get it done and he always mentioned it so I guess it's back on.  He picks the kind, sometimes it's coconut but not this year.  He was the best boss anyone could have ever asked for and he was very close with Sarge, they both spent time in Vietnam and told some stories to each other.  I am still close with his family too.

If I get to see Andre' today it will be session number 50!  Can you believe that?  50!  If I don't get there because of pressing matters then it will be Tuesday.  

I have stopped losing again but have not gained back my progress.  I know this is normal and I shall go forward.  I am back in high gear with eating properly and exercising.  

So that, my dear friends, is what is in my brain for today.  I wish for you an amazing Friday.  I know mine will be, it always is!


  1. Sofa time and it's good living again. It's lovely that you still think about your boss and a cake, a double chocolate cake to beat. I baked a white cake yesterday with white frosting to bring to my daughter's home. They'll be arriving home tomorrow from Calgary and the two grandparents will be there hearing all about their trip. We'll probably just get pizza but I thought my cake would also taste good with coffee.
    Keep it going with the weight. I'm bouncing up & down a little but not a great deal. I'm happy that I've not gained a great deal. I think I've beat the weight battle but I still have to watch and that's what I'm doing.
    Say hi to Roche. I saw a TV program called Rock - a Doodle. Right up his ally. See ya my gorgeous friend.


  2. mmm... chocolate! I made brownies the other day. Yum. I don't think I'd want to live without at least a bite of chocolate a day. I would give up wine and chicken and all sorts of things before chocolate. srsly.

    Sorry D#1 had to change her plans. She'll make it happen though.. soon, no doubt. Fingers crossed for your sofa.

    I tried palette painting this morning and LOVED it! Of course, I use acrylics so not sure how it will ever dry... if ever. I can't wait to try it again. ;)

    big hugs xoxo

  3. You've been waiting for that sofa for a very long time. I hope it's more than you dreamed of.

    Have a fabulous day honey. We are off on a cruise later this morning. Big hugs to you and my very best to Roche. :)

  4. Bee, Your boss was probably a great guy...I have a feeling your were a good worker too. That is so sweet that you made he cakes. Hope your weekend is wonderful....can't wait to see the sofa. xoxo,Susie
