It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Hot Baking Day.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario.

When Kathy and I got up this morning we already knew what the weather forecast was supposed to be. It was only going to reach the century mark as far as the Humidex was concerned making it at least ten degrees lower than the last few days. After coffee and toast we went to read the morning blogs we follow and were surprised that our scheduled blog post from last night had not been published. That was immediately rectified before anything else was done. 

I needed to do the laundry today while Kathy started baking the birthday cake for tomorrow’s celebration of our granddaughter Kylla’s birthday. While I sorted dirty clothes Kathy was gathering all the ingredients we had purchased the other day. Since we no longer have the large kitchen we did in our house baking any kind of cakes is limited to family and close friends. I got our big Kitchen-Aide mixer out so that she’d be able to put together her own chocolate cake batter and then she’d also have to blend a lot of chocolate icing for later. Can you tell this cake is for a teenager? 

With this being a Saturday I was surprised to have the entire laundry room to myself. Could it have been the fact that the Humidex was already up to 95 F (35 C) by 10:30 in the morning. With all the clothes in the washers I headed back upstairs to remake the bed but also made it on time to help take the first batch of cakes from the oven. 

I headed back downstairs just on time to get everything into the dryers. Time was flying because I went back upstairs just on time to help take the last two cakes from the oven and then to help Kathy make lunch. We watched the Weather Channel showing storm damage that occurred throughout Ontario and Quebec last night. 

By 1:45 I was back with the folded clothes just on time to wash up and start helping Kathy chop Peanut-Butter Cups, then start leveling and assembling the cake. If you are a Diabetic this cake is not for you because it would surely put you into a coma. However if you’re not and you like a Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake this is for you. At six inches tall weighing ten pounds and costing fifty dollars just for the ingredients and is so rich you can only eat a sliver of it at a time. Again can you tell this is for a teenager? 

We’re looking at more storms tonight but a clear cool day for celebrating tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
