Manicure/pedicure . . . and some chocolate cake!

Thanks to John and Elizabeth - I indulged in some me time yesterday. And get this, the Vietnamese gentleman who did both the manicure and the pedicure was named Lewis!! Of course I had to tell him about little Lewis, my new nephew from Vietnam. We had quite a talk about that. Fun.

So today I'm not playing in the tea room. Just doin' much needed stuff around the house.

Oh, I found a site that I really like. It's for 'foodies', of which I am (I recently discovered). It's Click HERE for it. (Or, of course, go to
Here's a sample picture. If you're like me I just want to take a fork and partake. . . and I'm not usually a chocolate lover - like most women in the galaxy.

I don't crave chocolate like most women do. Another thing we have in common. But, I DO agree -- that photo makes me want ot scarf up the whole cake. Good thing I have a birthday coming next week, cause I've been wanting some cake ever since watching an old Andy Griffith show on TV and Aunt Bee served a chocolate layer cake. Ummm. Of course, my cake will probably be a spice cake with coconut pecan icing, or a carrot cake with sour cream icing, or a plain vanilla cake with lemon icing. Ooo-la-laaaa!

OH, and I forgot to mention how much i enjoyed all the photo's of Rob and Caroline's wedding, and Laura's birthday. And the babies -- so many babies and all just beautiful. LOVED the one of Will with little Caroline and the music lesson -- so sweet. Your children were cute and fun as kids and now they have grown into such beautiful adults -- inside and out. You and Sam must have done something very right all these years.

thanks for the mention! and a post that combines a mani/pedi and chocolate cake couldn't be any better (unless there is a massage involved somewhere)
