Re:Daily Diary of Joy - Wednesday, January 26, 2011 8:29 AM
My daily diary of joy - I am thankful for 2 teenage boys still in my house - and these WEEKLY snowstorms give them an excuse for hot cocoa.
I am grateful for that boiled cake resipe - I think I may try it - but whick fruits do you recommend?  and sodium bicarb is baking soda? Then why do you need self rising flour?
We have a yearly superbowl party here - I don't follow it, but I am told I am appropriately sad about the Jets.  I think..
Jean, I remember your post about living long enough for your grandchildren to remember you - and now you are expecting 2 more?  Well girl, that givew you (and us) 2 more reasons to live!

Good morning - 

Mary L, I think Sharon should make the cake since it's her recipe and she could fly it over to Pat's - lol.  

Pat - are you ready for company?

Hug,
Elaine

Elaine, guess what.......it's snowing again!!!!  It stays so cold that it never melts.  We have mountains of snow.  Florida really sounds nice and it sure would be fun to get together and eat cake.  I could bring snow cones.  I hope Pat has her pool heated.  Hug,  Mary L

I love wearing my bright pink I "Heart" Boobies bracelet from keep-a-breast.org 

Today I was conducting hearing screens for children ages 4 - 6.  Near the end of the day one of the little girls asked, "Is that a boobie bracelet?"

"Yes." I said, then asked her if she knew what it was for. 

"Yes," she replied,  "it's for boobie cancer." 

Just made me smile...

Another funny story...

I had a right side mastectomy in May.  After my drains were finally removed... 4 weeks post op, I went out for dinner with my 14 year-old son and husband.

We all studied our menues. I asked my son what he was going to have.

Not looking up from his menue; straight faced, he announced, "I'll have a half a rack..."

We ALL broke up with hysterical laughter!  I love that boy!!!

Sharon, we got 10 more inches of snow last night.  No one is going anywhere today.  I hope you have fun skiing.  Is Spring almost here???????     Mary L
