miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1.  One week!...I can't believe it's been an entire week since I've posted.  I'm also a little behind in reading blogs...I plan on catching up today.

2.  You can eat cake...Look at what Rondell made to take to Thanksgiving dinner:

He made a 5-flavor pound cake...yum (don't be fooled because it doesn't look like the cover of Martha is delicious!).  He's the baker in our house...I love that about him.  My mom gave him the recipe years ago and my Granita gave it to her.  It is a hit at every family function.  This year we came home with an empty cake holder :)

**Note:  I thought I had the recipe electronically to share with you, but I don't.  I'll look it up and post it later :)

3.  You know you're getting older when...So, the kids and I drove up to Cleveland to hang out with my family while Rondell was managing the crowds at Best Buy (he had to be at work at 4:30!).  While we were there I got to see two of my good friends, Melanie and Shonda.  Everything was going just fine until....

Melanie (to my brother who is 19):  ...insert random question here...

Evan (to Melanie):  "Yes, ma'am"

MA'AM!!!  He called her ma'am...let's just say it was a sad moment for us, but also a good laugh.

4.  Out with Fall...I started taking down some of my Fall items in preparation for putting up our Christmas tree and decorations.  I sure will miss this little guy:
(This also made me realize that I need to clean my windows!)

I'll take Madame... Yes Madame. But ma'am? Never.

Glad you are back and glad you waved at our exit :) You would have been welcome to stop! We do have a fun scrapbook/paper goods store downtown called the Pink Tomato... might be right up your alley :)

Kelli, hope you and the family had a wonderful thanksgiving. I passed the Ma'am stage a while ago :-)

Hey--You ARE alive! ;o)

That cake sounds DIVINE and I must have the recipe--when you find it. :o)

Ma'am? Yeah, that one hurts a bit. I was getting "yes ma'am"d when I was first teaching at the age of 22. Boy, that was a doozy.

However, I knew I was getting old when I was no longer carded buying alcohol. When you go to the liquor store in a college town and they DON'T card you, it's NEVER a good thing for the ego...;o)

I can't wait to see your decorations! :o)

LOL about the ma'am! I've been called ma'am by the bag boy, and my heart just sinks. Do I really look like a ma'am? Seriously, I feel 20! :)

Kelli @ RTSM said...

That cake looks so yummy! Makes me want to make a pound cake:) I've been called ma'am before too and it makes you feel old for sure! I'm way behind on reading blogs, but I did manage to get some stuff posted this week...not like anybody was reading it though:)

Angie said...

Oh my goodness...can you send me a slice of that cake ma'am. haha!

I love pound cake...Yummy Yummy!!

Usually the cakes that look like Martha made them don't taste nearly as good as the one you pictured here!
