Memorial Day

Today is my Memorial Day since I have to go to work again tomorrow. Today was my first day off in 21 days and it may be my last day off until the week of July 4th. I have to say, I definitely enjoyed it but it is hard to cram a lot of stuff into one day. We went to town and I bought a new flag since the one we have flying outside now is an Army flag and I wanted a regular flag to go with it. We then went and visited my brother. My sister-in-law works for a magazine distributor and she gets Cake magazines for me for free! She had one for me today. My brother also told Phil how to figure out if the old Cavalier needed a new fuel pump or not (we now know it probably does).
And I made a cake! It was so nice since I didn't think I was going to get a chance to make one for a long time. It didn't really turn out as nice as I had hoped but ...more experience (lots of work).


It is red velvet and blue velvet (No, I had never heard of blue velvet before either.) It was pretty tasty.


I made a New England boiled ham dinner for supper as well. Can't that is all that hard though as all you need to do is boil a ham, potatoes and carrots.
Hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day and please remember the reason for it.

  2. Nice cake, Becky! Love the colors! So glad you finally had a day off! I hope your weather has cooled off a little. Ours has, since we are experiencing rain. It's still quite muggy though. Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

  3. OK, that cake looks good enough to eat, I think you did a great job. Doesn't matter what a cake or even a pie looks like, they still taste good. LOL

  9. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
