Hello my friends! I loved all the comments on my last post and I thank you for all of the encouragement on my involvement with CASA. I know several of you are in the professions of either social work or caring for children in foster care in some way. Your words mean so much to me. I've been out of the workplace for several years and haven't had to study for anything for ages so this is a giant leap for me. So much to learn.
It's still cold and frosty here. Remember the hoarfrost from my last post? It's still here, only thicker now. Many of you were concerned about my driving in it. It doesn't seem too bad on the streets except in the outlying areas so I haven't had any problems. The sidewalks and outside steps however, are a different story. Very slippery.
This morning I cleaned all three bathrooms, dusted and vacuumed the house and I have laundry going now. I have to do my normal Thursday & Friday chores today since I'll once again be in class all day tomorrow and Saturday. I also baked a Rubarb cake as you'll see in the following photos. It is a time-consuming task as there are several steps, but it's oh so GOOD when it's done. We'll have it for our treat after Bible Study tonight. I usually do my baking on Thursdays so we can have help eating the goodies. Hubby & I definitely don't need to eat a whole cake ourselves.
The first step. Read the directions. And there are lots of instructions with this cake.
e rubarb normally, like this cake.
Studying for this weekends class. I think I may be too old for this. Teaching a old dog new tricks and all...but I WILL persevere, if only to earn the faith you all seem to have in me. :-)
Stay warm, wherever you may be and I'll be back again soon.
