Hi my friends...Just checking in
Last weekend was a very busy time meeting up with friends, celebrating a very dear friends birthday and getting things sorted and cleaned out...
I've been doing some revamping and reorganizing...
It's not my most favorite thing to do, but the time has been way over due.  I am for the most part very organized, but sometimes things have a way of getting piled up a bit.  I'm in the process of cleaning out cabinets and organizing my "stuff" into plastic containers for a more organized way of storing.  I have found it to be much easier to store groups of items in open and easy to reach plastic containers inside cabinets than to stock pile things on top of each other in hopes when you want a certain item, it's within reach or not towards the back or bottom of the cabinet.  Storing in containers allows you to pull the container out and search for what your looking for.  No more pulling on one item to have 10 other items fall on top of my journeys over the past few months to different stores had me looking for plastic containers in specific styles and sizes.  I have a nice collection so now the revamping starts....
Last Friday evening was a meet up to celebrate a birthday...
I baked one of my Chocolate Cakes and surprised the birthday Lady.
Here are a few pictures of Judy with her cake..
Judy was so excited she started to light her own candles

After we realized Judy was trying to light the side of the candle,
the lighter was taken from her...
Seeing Judy's look, I'm not so sure she liked that lighter being taken from her...LOL

A little bit excited


Notice the haze of smoke....Good thing I didn't put a candle on the cake for each year she was old..!

Good times, always!  

This week the temperatures will be in the high 20's.  Winter is making its presence for sure here in PA..Bundle up

Remember, try to do a little more than yesterday, but rest as you go.(you know the drill) Over doing it will only cause issues later. Loves Ya and Hugs, K
