And WORK IT! (quoted from Mulan)

Well, Anna & I went to the YMCA this morning at 9am. Sarah & her brood met us there. We hit the treadmills for 30 minutes, then I hit the track for 20 minutes followed by 15 minutes on those weight machine thingys. It feels sooooooooooo good to be exercising, and I felt like we should have held a mini enrichment meeting because I think I saw 10 other girls from church! It was fun, I'm glad that I can go there and WORK IT now. I plan to go mon-sat.

The plumber came. He saw. He conquered. I now have a kitchen sink that is functioning! I've done 3 loads of dishes in the dishwasher and I have at least 2 more to go...

I had thought that because I am now exercising in the morning that I would have those precious 3 hours while Anna's in school to be extra productive. Well, this is what I did during those 3 hours:

Black Forest Cake

Well, we were invited over to Valene's house for dinner/games and she requested that I bring a dessert. I felt like renewing my skill in decorating cakes (I used to work in a bakery when I was 14 and the lady in charge taught me how to decorate cakes). I like to stay in practice. I recognize that I'm not a professional cake baker/decorator, but I greatly enjoy producing a dessert that is not only delicious but also LOOKS appealing. We took the cake over and it was a BIG hit. :) We played a card game called SET and then played SCUM. It was a fun evening, Anna didn't want to leave!
