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.
