Happy heavenly birthday.

 My big brother would have been 67 years old today. Growing up we were pretty close. Although there were times when I really got on his nerves. It's the job of a little sister to be a pest. Or so I thought. 

This picture was taken the day Wade and I got married.

Mike was five years older than I was and passed away when he was only 57.

What would have been.

 On this day in 2006, Wade and I got married. If he were still alive we would be celebrating our  18th anniversary.

Some days it feels like it was only yesterday and others it seems like a lifetime ago.

And here is the inside.

in the still of rhe night

Or in this case it's the early hours of the morning. Sunday and Wednesday mornings I am the first one in. The other day I snapped a few pics while the store was nice and quiet. I hadn't even turned on the lights other than the ones in the deli bakery area.

Spring shelf

I finally got around to putting away my Easter decorations.  That left the shelves empty. I decided to use items that made me think spring.

These items I dug out of the magic cabinet that holds decorative items for different occasions

The jar on the left is one I've had for years. The pink basket and tulip are from my Easter decorations.

Two candles and a bunny. After all, bunnies aren't just for Easter

More of my Easter decorations that just say spring more than Easter.

When the toilet paper is gone.

Most people would just throw away the empty roll. I'm not most people. Besides, blog friend Sandra was having fun with hers and she put ideas in my head.

I held the empty TP roll up against the camera lens on my phone. First I aimed at the house across the street

Then a garden decoration in my front yard.

Finally I aimed it at Gibbs

Two recent cakes I've done at work.
This unicorn cake is one I've done twice before. It was ordered by an ex employee who I had the pleasure of firing. She called the next day after she picked this up to tell me how amazing the cake was

The next one, the customer asked if I could do a horse, which I said I could not. Then he asked if I could do a horseshoe. That I figured I could handle. After I got home I thought I would see if I could either make a template or something I could actually lay on the cake. I went to clipart-library.com and found a horseshoe image.

I uploaded this image to Cricut's Design Space then cut it 4 times from cardstock and twice from a metallic vinyl. I used the 4 layers of cardstock to make it a bit more sturdy and the vinyl so that it would hold up better laying against the icing on the cake.

The customer seemed pleased with the cake.

Here's a closer look at the horseshoe.

In other news, we had another employee meeting yesterday. The sale of the building fell through. We still don't have a bright future but it did buy us a little more time.

Mellow yellow

I couldn't resist taking pictures of the yellow blooming in my yard

And daffodils.

 After the conversation I had with Bing's co-pilot where it recalled information from a past conversation, I decided to test it.

This was our conversation.

What do you know about me?


I don’t have access to personal data about individuals unless it has been shared with me in the course of our conversation. My design is privacy-focused, and I’m here to provide information and assistance based on the topics we discuss. How can I assist you today?

I want to know what you know about me from our past conversations


I’m sorry, but I don’t retain personal conversation histories or details about individuals. Each session with me is designed to be independent to ensure privacy and confidentiality. If there’s something specific from a past conversation that you’d like to continue discussing or need help with again, feel free to let me know, and I’ll do my best to assist you!

Yesterday I asked a question and part of your answer mentioned a specific like that I have that was not mentioned in the original question. When I asked if you remembered past conversations your reply was yes.Your answers here today contradict that.


I apologize for any confusion. I’m designed to not retain or recall personal data from conversations to ensure user privacy. Thank you for understanding.

This is when it told me it might be time to move on to a new topic. I guess it didn't care to talk to me about why it told me one thing that day and something different the day before. Maybe Co-pilot is just like both my husbands after all.
