What was left out

It was a busy week at sixtyone45 with Mr. out of town for the most of it. Little and I had heaps of fun, out and about everyday it seems.

A typical day for us is broken into Act One (6am to 1:30pm), then my everything wonderful naps for a couple hours (Intermission), followed by Act Two (4pm to 7pm) This play runs seven days a week, 365 days a year. This week looked like this...

Let them eat cake.

I am not a baker. Still.

(Coconut flakes pre-toasting. During this brief blogging journey I have learned that toasting both spices and nuts have changed how I cook.  Rather they have changed how things I cook taste and therefore changed how I cook.) I know I have said it before, but its still true. NOT. A BAKER. But (and its a bigger butt then it should be, literally. pun intended) I dare say I am improving. I decided this week to bake a cake. Without opening a box. I know right? I recently learned that you can make a cake without Duncan or Betty in the kitchen. Go figure.

Izzy. Found.

She's home. She's home. She's home.

Five days in the deep woods, gained a few scratches and lost a few pounds. But she made it and is back in the loving arms of her family.

Thank you Universe (and the amazing crew of people who spent long days looking). Thank you.

All is right again.

I love making lists.

(Making canned pumpkin since 1880 something? That's comitment.) I think that is why me and banking had such a harmonious relationship for so many years. Banking is all about lists. (ya, ya its also about keeping your money safe and all that but you know what I mean) Whether you are verifying cash in a vault or lending someone money to buy a house, there is one or two or seventeen checklists you need to complete. Since arriving in mommyville, it’s one thing I have missed. My son did not come with a checklist.
