Stir Crazy

Our oldest daughter, Corynn, has been taking part in a study for NASA that evaluates the effects of weightlessness on the body. That's pretty cool.

She has to stay in a bed and prone for like 60 days. That's insane!

She has about 13 days left before she can get up and she is about to lose her mind! She can't even get up to go potty.

She did however, get to meet one of the female astronauts in Houston. I'm ashamed to say that I don't remember her name.
I hope you get your earth legs back soon!

Carter's Sunburst

This is one of the camellias that we sell at the paying job. Gorgeous isn't it! The blooms are humongous!

Mini Cakes And The One Eyed Baker

The 21st was my boss' birthday and I planned to make mini cakes for her birthday lunch.

I planned to start them Sunday afternoon to have ready by the following Thursday.

My plans didn't quite work out...I poked myself in the eye (like an idiot).

That sucker puffed up like a toad and started watering like a faucet. I couldn't see, had a horrible headache and looked like Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. By the time I could see again it was Wednesday and I ended up doing a rush job.

They look okay from far away...
but when you get close up it's not so great.

My chrysanthemum turned into a lazy water lily.

The roses are a little stubby but it was my first try. They may not have looked perfect but they tasted awesome! I did half in a lemon sour cream cake with a ginger cream cheese filling, and the other was crazy chocolate cake with espresso filling. YUM!
