When I try to frantically get everything done on a busy day, bad things happen. Friday was one of those days.
I slept late - never a good sign on how the day is going to go. But, still recovering from shingles, I've been fatigued and just tired of the constant pain. So, sleep I did.
When I finally got busy, it was time to switch things to high gear. I wanted to bake two cakes for our church's lenten fish fry. My stove has an upper and lower oven. I rarely use the lower one. But today I decided to bake one cake in the upper oven and one in the lower. So I quickly moved one of the oven racks to the center on the oven I rarely use. Quickly is the key word here. Quickly is not good. Lopsided comes out of quickly.

If you ever wondered, the result of a cake baked in an oven with lopsided racks is a rather strange looking cake. You might even call it lopsided. (lopsided is the word of the day).

So what does one do with a lopsided cake? Why you just lop the skinny end off and ice the fat end. (sorry, I forgot to take a picture of that). So the church got a cake and 1/2. That's better than none - right?

I finally broke down and bought myself a new computer yesterday. This one has been giving me fits. For some reason it won't stay connected the internet. It is slow as molasses, even after numerous tune ups, and when I type, the cursor jumps all over the place. Blogging has been quite a challenge. Now I am faced with the fun job of loading software, setting up email, transferring email addresses (is there an easy way to do that Iggy?), and getting used to a new operating system (Windows 7). I think once I get used to everything, though, I'm going to love my new laptop. Wish me luck!
When Jim gets home from work this afternoon, we are going to grab our muck boots and head out to pick up a few sheep to graze our pastures and fatten up through the summer. Maybe I'll even spot a barn or two for Barn Charm! Win!
By the way, have I lately told all of my bloggy friends how much I appreciate you? Your comments are precious to me. They make me think. They make me laugh. And sometimes they make me cry. They also make me realize what a very lucky lady I am. You are, each and every one of you, very special to me. I hope everybody has a wonderful, upside right (not lopsided) weekend!
