SHE'S MAKING SURE SHE IS NOT DREAMING
I had lunch today with the one club member out of over 180 people who expressed interest in taking over one of the THREE board positions I'm currently handling. 184 members, I just checked. This sort of thing boggles me still, but no longer surprises me, after 13 years.

Who turned off summer again? It's COLD. Also grey, windy and wet. Brrr! Eyjafjallajokull, was it you? Bad volcano!

It's a busy weekend, heavy on kid activities, both of which are outside and the forecast is for more of the cold-windy-grey-and-wet. *sigh* A soccer match tomorrow morning for Karin and Martin is participating in a charity run on Sunday with his school to raise money for Haitian children.

Saturday is also Anders' birthday and his family will be coming over for dinner, and I need to bake a cake at some point. Spice cake, our favorite old standby. I asked him if he wanted me to bake a cake, meaning an American cake, from a box mix, and he agreed on spice cake. When I went to the pantry, I discovered that we have an entire SHELF full of cake mixes. One double Orange Supreme, 2 Krusteze Cinnamon Crumble cakes, 2 Rainbow Chip Party cakes (bought with kid birthdays in mind), FOUR spice cake mixes and a Reese's Dessert Bar Cake mix. Mmmm cake!

I suspect this will be one of those weekends that just whizzes by and leaves me floundering on the other end of it staring another crazy busy week of work in the face.

Yes today has been way too damn cold and windy. Not any feeling of May and spring at all...

After a tough week, it's time for weekend. Keep your fingers crossed that it stays calm without any more scares... :(

I hope that you will enjoy yours, despite the busy schedule! :)

It hasn't actually rained yet today and the sky is high and white, and when we walked to Karin's soccer game I didn't think it was actually as cold as it was the last couple of days, so there's that.

I hope you have an excellent relaxing weekend, Mia!!

We are experiencing Winter II as well. SNOW is in the forecast, they said we will wake up to an inch or two on the grass. I was expecting snow in March, and even in April...not a flake. Now? It is MAY, Mother Nature. Isn't there a statute of limitations on such things?

Happy Birthday to Anders...enjoy your CAKE! Are you making just one?

Re: From Megsie

NO SNOW! We haven't got that again (after the one incident), and I hope it stays that way.

And yes, just one cake. I am a sucker for spice cake so having even one in the house is a terrible temptation. :)

Ooooh! I love spice cake! Happy birthday to Anders!

You and your board sound just like the one my mom has for her chorale. Frustrating just scratches the surface.

It's like this in any organization, methinks. Ah well.

Mr. Volcano would like everyone to stop blaming her/ him. It's just the way God created Eyjafja.llajokull. Besides, it has not been a good 2010 so far.

:-P

Opps. That was me, Joy!

Haa! that volcano deserves all the abuse he/she gets!

Be nice to me or I spurt ashes all over everyone! Rrrrooooohaaarrrr! Hear that?!

'bsides... I was just trying to make friends by sharing my treasure I have... honest. Won't you be my friend? ;-j

Ooooh, spice cake, I LOVE spice cake with cream cheese frosting. I haven't had spice cake in years and years.

I'm making regular buttercream frosting, but it's SOOOO good.

Happy Birthday Anders! Enjoy the cake and the family gathering! Love, Lizardmom

That is exactly what my movie-making weekends are like. I love, love, love that course, but I also have these funny little attenuated weekends. Starting another, etc. Great.
