Since that encounter raised my blood pressure so high, I needed something to relax me. What better than sugar?? This little recipe book came in the Food Network magazine I picked up at the store. 50 .... count them ... 50 CUPCAKES!! There are three basic recipes with 50 ways to change them up to make delicious morsels of sweetness! I think I'll start with number one and make them all!!!
After lunch with friends, I stopped by my quilter to pick up my dog blanket. This one wasn't my favorite at all and was terribly hard to sew with the chenille fabric. Turns out when I saw it quilted, I liked it much better. This one will go on the back of the couch in the rig, me thinks.
It was sunny in the morning until the clouds started to come in. By 2:00 it was pouring, flooding the streets of town. Course it doesn't take much to do that .... these streets flood at the slightly drizzle of rain and have for 40 years!! They've fixed that problem twice that I know of, with no difference whatsoever. It's supposed to keep this up all week .... YAY for California!! We're getting some moisture!!
With all my research, I've decided to go with the Escapees Mail Service. At a first year cost of $165 plus postage versus Americas Mail at $189, $13.75 a month is much better than $80 the post office charges to forward my mail to a friend. I won't have to deal with junk mail any more either, which is a big plus. When home, I can have mail delivered by UPS to my house. I'm hoping the postage to forward mail once a month won't amount to as much as the post office charges. It makes me kind of nervous to change my address, but we'll see how it goes.
One last thing .... what service do you use to access the internet while traveling?? I have been using Sprint MiFi for years, but like my home Clearwire, they have figured out how to cut off all the unlimited services and charge LOTS more for much less service!! Since Sprint bought out Clearwire, they are discontinuing my home service at $40 a month ... new equipment they say ... and now charging over $80 a month!!
Yesterday, I received a letter from SPRINT saying they are discontinuing my mobile MiFi ... more new equipment ... and I have to buy their latest and greatest ... no price yet, but you can bet your britches it will be more than the $60 I pay now!! Maybe if I cancel my garbage service like my neighbor did (stacking it all on my driveway) I will be able to afford my new internet service!!
I need another cupcake!!!!!
