Day 241/365 - Princess Cake, originally uploaded by sunmallia.
This is a Princess Cake, or what is left of it anyway! This is the one cake I insist upon every year it is made up of a standard white cake mix with layers of fluffy whipped cream and raspberry jam, then covered again with whipped cream and a sheet of marzipan, then molded into a little dome shape. It makes me feel like a princess for a day, that and the tira I wear while eating it, ha ha ☺
So I think in 59 years I have learned these 5 things:
1.Don’t hold a grudge, it is not worth your time or energy
2.If the urge to twirl overtakes you, then you must twirl regardless of where you are
3.Never judge a book (person) by its cover, open and read it if you don’t you will have done yourself a great disservice.
4.Pay it forward, help those less fortunate then you, and believe me they will remember. When I was little we were helped by some wonderful people until we were able to get back on our feet and I have never forgotten and always keep then in my prayers
5.Take 15 minutes a day and just smile, you can do this in private or in public, although I must say the public one does frighten some people but that is their problem not yours.
Have a great day my friends, take a minute and enjoy your view. ☺

I would love to know why did you choose your pet, what was the one special thing that you saw in those eyes that said this is the one. Also do you think you look like your pet, I have 5 dogs and I think I look a bit like all of them :)

Well I knew just where to go and as I drove up there they were all grazing in the grass, looking right at me and some even approaching so I thought WOW this is great I am going to get a fantastic shot it will be an EXPLORE 1st page this is such a great scene. So there I was setting up ready to click the camera when who wakes up, my 3 hounds who proceed to wale and they scared the beejeezas out of the poor little lambs who started running for their lives as I was yelling wait wait they won't hurt you and the more I yelled the more the hounds howled! So anyway folks here is my version of Brads gorgeous photo but on the back end.
This year I told myself I was going to learn lessons in photography, well note to self when out shooting farm animals do not take the hounds! Happy Furry Friday all :)

I am always a sucker when it comes to a dog staring me down with those big old sad eyes of theirs. Sophie here is waiting for mom to take her photo so she can have that big old cookie in her hand. Now Sophie is on a diet the Vet told us she had to lose 3 lbs!!!!! Wish I only had to lose 3 pounds, but I digress. So should I or should't I give this little person a cookie for being such a good girl with big brown eyes.........
Yup, she gets a cookie, resistance is futile........

Well most people would thing that Coonhounds should be out chasing raccoons or squirrels and such. Well not my Presley as she is way to busy picking tomatoes from her tomato plant to do that! She especially likes the little yellow ones guess they are sweeter or something. So this year I planted her her own plant so she would leave my tomatoes the heck alone, and she has been quite respectful of it as she always goes to this one plant as she knows it is hers for some reason, or could it be me yelling stay away from the other tomatoes! Well that is my Presley a Vegan like her momma :)
