The dog days of summer

Today is the first official day of summer at our house. So far, it's been a pretty good day. I was actually able to sleep in. If you consider 7:45 to be sleeping in, which I do. It was so nice too because I'm feeling like poo today. I have one of those amazingly wonderful summer colds with snot and coughing galore. I'm going to have to do something I dread and avoid like the plague. I'm going to have to take all of my kids to the grocery store so I can buy some cough medicine. Just thinking about the trial it will be, literally brings tears to my eyes.

I auctioned off a birthday cake for my ward's Relief Society Angel Auction. I made it over the weekend and will post pictures of it on my picture blog later today. I'm not terribly happy with it. I've made a few cakes in my day, so I have some experience. There have been times I've been able to breeze through them, but this one was a very sweary one. I had a persnickety and irritating batch of fondant that didn't want to roll out well for anything. Also, I probably should have been wearing my glasses when I was leveling it because it's slightly on the lopsided side. I guess I could pretend it was supposed to be asymmetrical. Oh, and it's nothing like how I pictured it to be. I hate it when that happens.

I bet the cake looks GREAT!! I am still kicking myself in the butt for not outbidding her!!

I am sorry that you are sick. It seems that Z is sick too. He has headache, cough and runny nose. Must be something going around!! I hope that you feel better soon.

I hope you feel better soon! Being sick is the worst.

Hoping you're feeling much better. I suck at being sick.

I'll bet your cake was the absolutely the best one there!

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. That makes the first day of summer not quite so fun!

Stay far away from me! I am too busy to have a cold. You have to take all the kids with you to get some Dayquil? Not okay. I wish I lived closer, I would run to the store for you, cause that sounds like pure torture.

I have never made a fondant frosting before. I'm going to try it sometime soon, but I'm a little nervous for it. I would love to be good at decorating cakes but I just don't think it's going to happen.

I hope you are feeling better! I went over to your photo blog but didn't see any pictures of the cake. Pictures. I want pictures.
