Went to Yoga,

came home and made 5 dozen cupcakes, went to lunch bunch, went shopping, came home,  finished key fobs, and now straightening the house for an 8 pm meeting.

That has been my day.

Apparently my

brain does not operate first thing in the morning.  I walked to yoga this morning because Natalie was using my car.  It wasn't until I was putting my shoes on to come back home that I discovered this.

Well, at least they are both black.

I was teaching

a primary class today about Prophets.  I didn't have much time to prepare, as I just got called to substitute yesterday.  

The lesson plan suggested having a man come in to portray King Benjamin giving his sermon from the tower.  So, I asked the first available man I saw, and he was a very good sport.  He did a great job, and looked very official, wearing my blue bathrobe.

The quote

"Pride comes before the fall" was literally the case with the boiled raisin cake I made today. 

We went to dinner at Charlene and Greg's and I wanted to make a boiled raisin birthday cake for Richard.  That is his favorite cake that Mom made.

I was so proud if myself because the cakes came out perfectly.   You'll have to trust me on that, because I didn't take a picture.   But, believe me,  they were perfectly rounded.  And I was proud.

But I didn't have time to let it cool before frosting it. That's when the "fall" happened.  

I guess the only redeeming thing is that mom's always had a few cracks in it, too, but I think I out did her on this one.

I'm trying

not to add a lame post like last night. I have so many books and calendars the girls have made for us that I want to post and preserve digitally.

Here is a sample of 1 of them.  I was looking at this book because I'm supposed to make a sample of a recipe that has either come down to me or that I am passing on to my family.    Since it is so late, I don't have time to scan all of it, but here is a sampling.   This was put together by Tiffany for Mother's day in 2008.
