I feel very blah today. All I wanted to do was sleep. I'm not sick or anything, just blah. I grabbed a little bit of rest between the 10 loads of laundry I did. I didn't sleep, but I sat on the couch and read a book about how to make cakes. It made me want to try to make one from scratch. We've been slacking on the science for the past couple of weeks, so I'm thinking of having some food science. The science of cakes. The book was written, I think, by someone from England. The recipes called for size 3 eggs and caster sugar. I wonder what size eggs American chickens lay?

I also received a package in the mail from Target. I got some birthday money from my parents that I was instructed to spend only on myself. I obeyed and bought $50 worth of clothing from Target which also got me free shipping. I bought 2 cute dresses (same dress just different colors), a white shirt in 2 different sizes, and a pink shirt. It's been a while since I've worn a dress. I'm usually a shirt and skirt person. But when I tried it on and was trying to decide if I liked it, Wendy came walking in the room and said, "Mommy, is that your nightgown?" I think I'll be taking those back. Aww, that's too bad. I might just go to the store and look at the clothes racks. It's too hard to shop online. The online images with models with tall bodies and big boobs isn't realistic.

I think I might actually go to bed early tonight. I know my kids aren't going to forget that it's waffle Friday tomorrow and I need to get enough rest to be in the mood to make them.

No pictures today. Sorry. I did take a picture of two lizards, but I might have to up my blog rating to PG-13 if I post it. It was a good picture though. Poor lizards. They get no privacy.

  1. Size 3 eggs are an old measurement, just use Large eggs. I guess size 3 is officially 63g.

    Oh, and caster sugar is just super fine sugar. You can put regular sugar in a dry blender of food processor and pulse away to make it more fine, otherwise you probably need to find a baking specialty store, I doubt its on the shelves of most grocery stores (though I could be wrong). Its not quite as fine as powdered sugar, plus powdered sugar has cornstarch added to keep it from clumping so you should use regular sugar if you don't want to grind it yourself.
