Of late birthday gifts and days off

I came home from work Wednesday night to find that my sister Rhoda had locked herself in the bedroom and I was not allowed in. So I talked to her from the other side and made her laugh and I was helpful and sent her a scissors under the door..... Finally she comes out with a package wrapped up in snowman paper {'cause that's usually all we keep on hand :)} and gives it to me. She said it was a birthday present. My birthday was in October & I told her I thought she had already given me a present but she had forgotten... or something.... but who declines to two birthday presents? {note: we do normally wait about 5 months to give each other presents 'cause that's normally how long it takes to find that one thing that would be perfect. }  I felt the package like always and discovered it was a book. But first there was the most funny, delightful card with a Winnie the Pooh quote on the front that needed to be read first. {Seriously people. If you have never been privileged to read one of her cards than you're missing out on some really encouraging humor. -or humorous encouragement, however you want to say it! } I tore through the snowman paper to discover that it was what I thought it was. Run Baby Run. She knew I had wanted this book for ever so long but since I had 'thought' she already got me a present, I wasn't expecting it! I read the book for about an hour before washing the supper dishes. I like it. :)
The next day was the only day this week that I could be home all day so we made cupcakes and decorated them. It was grand fun. We made 24 big cupcakes and 6 mini ones....

 I told Rhoda that I don't feel like I have good teaching skills when it comes to things like this.But a few of them did turn out looking like they came straight from a cup cake shoppe! Yay!

I find days off to be exciting and usually relaxing.... sometimes to the point where I don't feel like I get anything accomplished.. ? But that's just reason to look ahead to the next weeks day off and decide what you will do that day. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't! Sometimes it is a relaxing repeat of the previous week! :)

Have a wonderful weekend folks! 
I'm excited 'cause I get to see my brother & sis-in-law this weekend! Yay!
