Thursday Thirteen #6
1. Make A LOT of royal icing violets for a birthday cake
My best friend's baby girl is turning two. *insert heartfelt awwww here* She's having cupcakes with icing flowers. :D I'm the resident cake geek so I volunteered to make the flowers. I finally managed to gather up all the stuff I need! My supplies have become somewhat unorganized since my little guy thinks that they are his personal toys.
2. Clean the whole house
This needs to be done anyway, but my best friends are coming over to aid me tonight in the flower creation.
3. Weed the Rose beds
I actually have my first rose of the year finally! It's not the color it was on the label...but oh well it's still pretty.
4. Finish the chapter I'm working on in Fiona
I have my doubts that this will happen with the munchkin running rampant.
5. Feed my pet crow
Okay, he isn't really my pet, but an ADORABLE little bitty crow comes to my bird feeder and eats everyday. In fact between him and the others they empty it once a day!
I'm not actually allowed to do this myself. Bryon has some sort of macho belief that only the man should do the mowing... Whatever, as long as it gets done!
7. Weed Eat
I do this because otherwise he chops down flowers and baby bushes that I spent hours planting. He'd do that mowing too but I've marked them all with big neon flags now. I'm telling you, those flags are one sexy fashion statement for my yard! One step below giant pink flamingos!
8. Change the cat litter
Ugh! I've seriously considered getting pregnant again just to avoid this job. hehe Okay not really!
9. Read approximately 15 books and play about 500 games with my son!
What can I say, he loves his mommy. I think he must have sensed me write that because he just brought me The Cat in the Hat.
10. Clean up the piles of fabric lying on the floor of our spare bedroom.
I was trying to find some fabric I wanted the other day and I pretty much tossed my collection of unused fabrics all over the room.
11. Remove all the rocks from the pasture so it can be mowed.
ROFLMAO Yeah, like this is going to ever happen! We have a field that is about an acre, and the people who lived here before had like four horses on it. I don't know if you know anything about horses but let's just say that is TOO MANY horses on one acre. They ate everything living out there including the bark from the trees most of which have died. I live in the mountains and when water runs over ground with nothing growing on it you get top soil erosion. What's under the top soil? GIANT BOULDERS and various little rocks! Well at least I'll never have to buy rocks for landscaping. :D
12. Cut Down the aforementioned dead trees
13. Post my Thursday Thirteen
And promise myself that I won't go another ENTIRE week without posting a single thing on my blog.
The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged!
