Project 365 Week 24
Project 365: Take a photo a day and see your life in a whole new way.
6/13/11 (Monday) – I am not one to purchase an item because I want it. The majority of my purchases are because I need them, like socks, underwear, food and gas for my car. My purchases of socks and underwear don’t happen very often. I love to get socks as a gift because that means I didn’t have to buy them! I have been admiring these Gerbera Daisies ever since I started going to the best greenhouse around for the last four years. This year was the year I splurged and paid $3 for this plant that will die once fall arrives.
6/14/11 (Tuesday) – We met friends for a hike and then went to the beach. The kids worked together to make a pool. Why do they need a pool when we have a 61.2 acre lake to swim and play in?
6/17/11 (Friday) – Another pillowcase.
6/18/11 (Saturday) – I made this cake for a friend. Her daughter asked for a marble cake, shaped like a cat, vanilla frosting, light purple cat with blue eyes. I baked and frosted a 9″ x 13″ for the base and 9″ x 9″ for the cat. After I cut out the cat shape I put my heavy layer of crumb coat on the cat before putting it on the base, something I should have done with the dinosaur cake (from my Week 17 post).
I went to bed after getting this far on the cake and feeling like it needed something more.
This is what I came up with…
The best part is when Lydia saw the cake she said, “Oh Miss Jenny, I love it!” My favorite part of cake decorating is seeing/hearing the reaction of the person who is getting the cake.
6/19/11 (Sunday) – Father’s Day. These photos were taken earlier in the week. I mixed up my photos because I didn’t take any photos today.
I believe these photos fit well for Father’s Day, since we have a great Papa who includes our boys in all of his interests and teaches them amazing things.
