the farmers' market.
Anyway, I got some delicious peach lemonade from one of the stands, and we sat down to listen to music. The temperature actually felt okay, if you sat in the shade with an iced drink and the wind happened to blow.
I mentioned in my last post that I possibly going to see the Civil Wars. Yeah, well, I should have known it was too good to be true. The only reason I had hope was because the website didn't say it was sold out, unlike other shows, but...apparently it was. (Might be useful info to share, website-people!) Not entirely surprised but pretty disappointed. So then I set my sights on seeing Adele...but my mom looked up the tickets and the cheapest ones were like $270. Yeahno.
an almost-cake disaster.
Yesterday I decided to make a cake for my mom's birthday (which was really Friday). Everything was fine; the cake was in the oven; I had tasted the batter so I knew it was going to be okay. I went off to go do something else, and then I heard my sister's voice. "What's that smell?" Well, that smell was my cake. I pulled it out, and half the top was charred black and hard as a table. Great. It still had like ten more minutes; I didn't know what went wrong. Oh, well. I let it cool until my parents got home.
"So, how'd your cake turn out?" "Well..." "Did you remember to change it from 'broil' to 'bake'?" Silence.
Really, it makes me laugh how easily I can mess stuff up. The good thing is that it was salvageable! A little black on top, sure, but nothing a knife and
crazy cat lady.
So, my grandma sent me this shirt as an early birthday present. It says, "Cats are like potato chips, you can't have just one." And my cat walked right in front of the picture. >.< Not sure exactly how I feel about this representation of my personality...but thanks.
i saw a back-to-school ad today.
Really?! This is the sort of injustice that makes me want to use expletives. It is July; no one goes back to school in July! I hate being reminded of school until maybe a week before it starts. I certainly don't buy supplies until the last week of August. I don't even want to think about it right now. Gah!
one final note.
You should go check out Libby's blog birthday giveaway. She made everything by herself -- how cool is that? :)
Have a wonderful rest of your day!
