Okay, I know it's Thursday but I need to start my Random Friday post early as I have a busy few days coming up. We are counting down to our big fundraiser for the Humane Society which is going to be held on Saturday. Now we haven't had a lick of rain in two or three weeks but it's supposed to rain on Saturday........Sigh....... Guess I'd better find my big golf umbrella and some waterproof boots!
We are meeting today to put together the bags that we are giving out to all of the participants. Each business that sponsored us will have their brochure advertising their business put in there along with magnets, their PAWS t-shirt and other goodies. We have 300 to put together. Yoshi, the resident mascot cat will be there helping us. She always attends all of the board meetings going from person to person to be petted and loved. She is an honorary board member.
Jo-Lynne, my niece that did my new design has made a button to put on my blog sidebar and I would like to give it to all of my readers to put on their sidebar if you would like. I think it is adorable and it will remind you all to come visit me often! :o) If you are in the market for a new design hop on over to Jo-Lynne's site DCR Design and take a look at what she does. She really works hard at getting just the right design for her clients.
Have any of you made the Amish Friendship bread from the starter? My neighbor gave me a cup of starter and today is the day that I mix it all up and bake it off. Each day you have to mush the bag of starter and on day 5 you add a cup and a half of oil, milk and flour. Today is day 10 so I am anxious to see how it comes out. My neighbor says it is just absolutely delicious so I will let you know!
At this point you add all the rest of the ingredients and put it in two loaf pans. It is cooking and my kitchen smells heavenly! Update: It is just scrumptious!
The oldest horse at the stable who belongs to my friend Ellie foundered yesterday. He is a 33 year old Morgan and and can still do most of his dressage moves. We think he got into a wasps nest as he has trauma to his neck with lots of swelling which the vet thinks went to his feet. He hasn't had any rotation in his feet so that is very positive and we are hopeful that he will come out of this.
My blogging buddy Nancy at Nancy's Nonsense bought a pie plate a while back that I just loved. She offered to pick one up for me and mail it and I got it yesterday. It is so NICE! It is deep and has the fluted edges which I love, plus it is red! I just put together an apple pie in it for it's maiden voyage! Thank you Nancy!
Noodles loves it when the grand kids are here. Munchkin, notsomuch! I was getting things washed and packed up the day they were to go home and I think Noodles knew something was up. He climbed into their suitcase and stayed there all morning. I don't think their kitty would appreciate it if Noodles came home with them!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Remember my Mom in prayer on Monday as she goes in to have her knee replacement surgery! Thanks!
Update: Just got home from our PAWS meeting and our fundraiser has been postponed until October 11th due to the threat of heavy rain on Saturday. :o(
