Fay won't go away

She's still hanging around on the east coast causing flooding, and a ton of rain here in Marion county..its worse today than its been all week.. You can't really see how hard its raining in the pictures, but its a steady rain..

Fay is still hanging around

The weather is much worse today..not hurricane worse, but definitely don't want to be out in bad. The wind is picking up, and its still dark and dreary outside.

Pictures before Fay

Just thought I'd post some pictures before the part of Fay we're expected to get (not much) arrives. Its actually kind of nice out right now, a little windy, and drizzly off and on though.

Its hard to believe

That I took this picture only about 10 minutes ago..You can't even tell is daytime in this picture.Its going to be a nasty, dreary day. There will be no washing the car, or cleaning the patch of yard out for the compost heap today. This looks like an all day event. Oh well, at least I'll get some more laundry done. Today is my last day of vacation, I go back to work tomorrow (yay! I start getting paid again!), so I have plenty of things to do indoors to get ready for the school year. I've got all the shopping done..I may need some new shoes..I just bought a pair of skechers, and they are a little pinchy..but, maybe they'll loosen up. I am so ready to start working again, I've missed it.

I'm pretty happy

I just got a call from a friend at work..My son has exactly who I wanted for his 4th grade rotation class. He has a male homeroom teacher, and my friend for Math and science. I'm so happy for him..and he is so relieved!

On another note, I made an awesome lemon cake the other day..want the recipe?

Of course you do!

2 boxes Duncan Hines lemon supreme cake mix, make according to 2 layer cake directions

(you need 4 layers)

3 boxes of lemon jello pudding (Make according to directions for pie filling, cut milk by 1/2 cup per pkg)

1 stick margarine/butter

1 8 oz cream cheese

lemon extract (1-2 capfuls)

vanilla extract (1 capful)

lemon zest

confectioners sugar

Make the cakes, let cool completely. When assembling the cake, put pudding between layers. Frost the cake, carefully. Do not try to cut tiny small pieces of this cake, it will fall apart.

Make icing..very easy, cream butter and cream cheese, add lemon and vanilla, and lemon zest, and confectioners sugar..blend until its the desired consistency.. I used one bag of confectioners sugar..about 2 lbs..I have some left over.

But, here's the wallaby..isn't he cute?
