I am missing in action around blog land. I am going in so many directions. An update is, my son and his girlfriend went camping and then found themselves broke down in Nevada.
We live in Northern Ca. His fuel pump went out.
He managed to call me, but I wasn't home and when I left the house, I forgot my cell phone.
He called twice and I missed his calls. There was no way to return his call, when I returned home and heard his message. He was having his truck towed to our house. I was concerned about not being home that evening, because we were invited to dinner by some neighbors
Thankfully, my son called us again before we left for dinner.
Being a mother, I was worried about not connecting with him. All went well. We went to dinner and when we returned home, they were at our home.
So, next, we were on a mission to find a fuel pump. After expensive bids. around $1,000 for the part and labor, my husband turned to Amazon and found one for $79.00 on Amazon Prime with a 2 day
delivery and free shipping. Amazon Prime is so worth it.
My son looked online on to see videos on installing a fuel pump for his truck. Imagine, he found a video explaining how simple it is to install a fuel pump in a truck. My son did it himself and saved himself $$$'s.
I tell you, you can find anything online. Happy campers were on their way home.
I was asked my a friend to bake a cake for her husband's 65th birthday. Mind you, I am not a cake decorator. I would like to be, however I am a newbie.....LOL
Through all of this fuel pump dilemma, I had to bake a cake and decorate it. Her husband is a cyclist, so I found a cute red bike cake topper online.
His bike is red, by the way. I bought the 6 and 5 candles in red.
Fondant trial and error was on the menu.....Have you ever worked with fondant?
I need some darn lessons....ha ha.
I was not happy with the darn cake, however my friends were elated. I also happened to remember his favorite cake is carrot cake. You can see the m&m's I used were moving around.
How cute the cake matched his shirt.
Her daughter is getting married in September and they are having a Hawaiian garden wedding.
I snapped this photo the other night. Just sharing a beautiful sunset.
We recently bought some beautiful gold goblets to set a lovely table......I hope to get back on track with a tablescape. Happy 4th to everyone. Beautiful fireworks to enjoy. They were from last year's New year.
