Miscellany Monday

What fun to connect with Carissa for Miscellany Monday. No rhyme or reason, just our "  random thoughts."   

1. For the first time in probably 5 years I had my nails painted on my last visit to the nail salon. I have had white tips and just decided that I needed to spice up my life with a little color for a change. It was really hard to  
"step out of my box"   but I was glad I did until I took this picture of my hands and I'm afraid they probably look every day of their 58 years. ~smile~

 2. Do you remember those little Welsh Corgi puppies I posted 4  weeks ago in this meme?  Well, here are those precious little puppies now.  I guess the worst things about puppies is that they grow up to be dogs. ~chuckle~

3. We celebrated our son's 34th birthday last evening. His birthday isn't until the 3rd, but our family has 4 birthdays the first week of Oct. so we decided to start celebrating a week early so that we could get them all in.  When we celebrate a birthday I put out a special birthday plate, fresh flowers and a little "  fuzzy fella"   on the kitchen island in their honor.  I think everyone should feel extra special on their birthday and hopefully this adds to that feeling for them. 

4. Our son's favorite dessert is pound cake so that is what he got last evening. Served up in grand style on the "  birthday dessert plates" , topped with ice cream and strawberries. Doesn't it just look  yummy? I was really proud of this picture but my family really thought I was a bit crazy to stop the entire partying process to snap this picture. ~smile~  That's okay, I'm the Momma and I can do as I good and well please. ~big chuckle~

5. I absolutely love the little Mini-Bundt pans  and I usually make one every time I make a cake in a regular Bundt pan. There's always enough mixture to make both a regular size and one of these little mini ones. I love having one of these in the freezer to share with someone. They are great for a single person or for a couple.  The recipe for a regular Bundt cake will usually make about 4 of these and I've done that before too. But, these little pans are ridiculously expensive and I've priced them all over the world (better known as the internet).~giggle~

 6. Now, this precious little cowboy will be the next one to celebrate his birthday in our family.  He will be a whopping 2 years old this next Saturday and is he ever going to love the Fisher Price barn and farm animals that his CiCi and Poppa are giving him. I never knew one so young could get into this whole "  cowboy thing"   but after all, he was born in Oklahoma.  Go figure!

A happy week to you and we've been promised fall temperatures this week so I'm plum excited about that.
