I spent most of this week working on a Sweet 16 Cake Pop Cake. I made it for a neighbor’s daughter. We started out talking about a basket of pops, but I was thinking that a sweet 16 birthday was in need of something a little more special. I had never made a display before.I made several trips to Michaels and JoAnn’s looking for ideas and just the right materials to make it work. I found a great deal on cake forms on-line, much better prices than anything I could find locally. I had so much fun this week in the kitchen making the pops and in my crafting corner working on the stand. I had a “oh I remember moment” of a science project of long ago that taught me you can’t paint styrofoam with spray paint without priming it first! Nasty mess, hopefully this time I will stay in my working memory;0) I ended up using crafters paint and that worked awesome! I had a great time! I am hoping the birthday girl is as happy with it as I was!
In the library I started a couple new books, although I didn’t finish any of the others I already had in my basket. I am hoping to set aside more reading time this month. One of the books I started was a recommendation of a friend. She sent me a copy of Adrenal Thyroid Revolution by Aviva Romm, M.D. on audible. I started listening to it while I was working on my project and it rang true for this over 40 not quite 50 lady. I did pick up a hard copy because I am thinking I could use a little wellness reboot(the whole graduation and sending a kid to college had a significant impact on my scale). I like to keep notes in my nonfiction, trying to be better books like this so I definitely wanted a hard copy. Hopefully I can get some more reading/listening in this weekend and start on the program next week, but no promises.
I must confess my time on the mat was next to none and I can feel it! I am challenging myself to do better next week. I know it makes me feel and think better, but for some reason it is the first thing to go when I get busy.
Well that is my week in review. Have a great weekend! I know I will! I will be enjoying fall and watching a little football with my hubby, Roll Tide!
