VBS was fun last night. It was the last night for this summer. The apple-carrot-pecan-cheesecake cake was great! I had just a bit left, which I polished off today. I made it without the rich icing, but with a light dusting of powdered sugar.

Today I didn't do much of anything. I did have a nice workout on the Wii. Today I did Shape Boxing and Wii Fit yoga. I'm trying not to do the same thing two days in a row.

Jack called late in the day. He'd been hiking in a volcanic crater with son in-law Jack and grandson Matthew. He said that he wished I were there, and I believed him. :)

Busy day!

Well, for me, anyway! I did my Wii workout, spending 15 minutes on Fitness Coach and then 20 on DDR. I got Full Combos on 2 songs, and one was a first-time -- Keep on Movin' -- one that's dogged me till today! I'm feeling really strong, with lots of sore muscles. I always feel better about my workouts when I have sore muscles. Not sure that I'm supposed to revel in sore muscles, but... there we are!

Next I decided to swallow the toad and get my dishes done. I always do them by hand, since it's just me and I don't wash my sterling in the DW anyway. I usually do them daily, but had loafed for a couple of days.

Then it was cake-baking time. I did an apple-pecan-carrot cake with a cream cheese ribbon. I'll let you know how it is, after the VBS supper tonight. :) It surely looks good, though! This was another one of those nearly-every-bowl-in-the-house projects, though not as involved as the lemon-pecan torte that I'd done for the MI party.

Kayakers just floated past on the river. What a beautiful place this is!

I'm not sure if I mentioned this or not, but Jack's in Hawaii with his family. He arrived last night and I guess a good time is being enjoyed by all. I went over and looked in on Eddie and he seems oblivious to the fact that his Daddy's gone for a few days. I'll go and see him again today.

House for Sale

Yes, it's still for sale! The people who came to look today have a house already, thinking of moving, and need to think harder. I got up this morning and worked out with the Wii, doing Shape Boxing. Then I dusted and vacuumed both downstairs and upstairs. I did two loads of laundry, and then readied the house for the showing. I was still taking the trash out when Judy showed up, 10 minutes early. She told me that it would be ok if I stayed, so I did.

Then, after meeting the people and answering a question or two, I drove into town. I checked on Jack's house, moved Eddie's food timer up a bit, checked our mail (none), perused the downtown Farmers' Market (buying some apricots, a tomato, and a tiny zucchini bread), went to the bank for some cash, and then went to Meier for some edibles.

The rest of the afternoon I cooked dinner for myself, ate that, and then, as I watched Hell's Kitchen and Master Chef, I snacked endlessly on fruit that I'd bought today. :)

Monday after

Today was the Monday after the play's end. Monday, after the play's end, is always a sort of bummer day for me anyway. I didn't leave the house at all, but spent the day working out, playing on my computer, and watching tube. I didn't even clean the house -- my usual thing to do on Mondays.

Tomorrow I'll clean in the morning, because I have another house showing in the afternoon!

The news guys are on and are talking about how miserably humid it is. LOL I just stuck my head out and thought, with it so cool and nice, I'd open the windows! These folks don't know humidity!
