Cake weekend has begun. The first one, the groom's cake, is baked and cooling. If you are going to the wedding this is the one you want a piece of. Peanut butter cake, ganache filling, peanut butter, butter cream frosting. The house smells wonderful!
I bought an air freshener for the office a week or so ago - clean cotton - and set it in the lobby. No one seemed to notice or complain so I figured it was an improvement.

Since I got my tablet ... coming up on 3 years now... I've wanted a bag/purse combo that would hold my tablet, camera, wallet, and a couple of small zip pouches. I've just about decided I'm going to have to make my own.
