For today's Writer's Workshop I chose prompt #5- What are three things we would love to know about you? Well, I don't know if you would LOVE to know any of this about me, but I'm going to tell you anyway. Don't worry there are no real big revelations or major confessions. Just three simple facts about Lady Di.
#1: I hide chocolate and other delicatable snacks in random, obscure places around the house from my kids....and husband. Although, I think my husband may be on to me because once he wanted to know why a bag of Reese's Pieces were in my apron and oven mitt drawer. Now, why he was in my apron and oven mitt drawer I do not know, but luckily it was unopened and I said I was saving it for "us". He bought it...I think. I have since abandoned that hiding place. No worries, there are others that have yet to be discovered.
#2: I LOVE baking and decorating cakes. I am a self-taught cake maker. I have a whimsical fantasy of owning a cool pastry shop and being a cool pastry chef like the ones on T.V. However, a little thing called "real life" gets in the way of that. No worries, I get my cake fix by making cakes for my kid's birthday's and there are plenty of nieces and nephews around to keep me busy. I even made a wedding cake once. Maybe when the kids are all grown up I will open that shop. Instead of being the Cake Boss, I can be the Cake Granny. The first picture is the Tea Pot cake I made for daughter's 2nd b-day.
My nephew LOVED Superman!
The Princess Cake for my daughter's 3rd b-day
It has black icin'! You can't even begin to imagine how hard it is to make black icin'! (it always just wants to stay a yucky gray color). It was great though, all the kids had black teeth and mouths. This was also for a nephew whose Daddy (my bro-in-law) is a 2nd Lt. in the Army.
#3: I believe in Guardian Angels. I recently had an experience that affirmed this belief. Some of you might already know this. A rather large tree fell on my parked Suburban while I was still INSIDE it. I won't go into too much detail, if you want the whole story and see more pictures (they are pretty amazing) you can go HERE. However, I will say that there was a series of events that saved me from harm. So, I am a believer in Guardian Angels. I am so grateful that I came out of the whole thing relatively untraumitized. Unless of course you consider the fact that I give every tree I drive by the "stinkeye".
There you have it. 3 things about Lady Di. Oh yeah, #1 is our little secret okay (pinky swear?)
