In a Happy Mood  
Yep, just bought tickets to see Michael Buble in Orlando next March. Upper level but I was not about to pay over $300 (3 tickets) around Christmas so I hope my friends can deal with it. We missed him last time around to miscommunication so $50 a pop is better than $90 to my mind.

I was thinkiing about hitting the shops today as I still need presents for my brother and his family. They'll be little things but I really haven't figured out what. Howevver as it is almost 11and I haven't changed out of the PJs yet, I think shopping will be Sunday. I will make an attempt to work on cleaning my room and make it look somewhat presentable for company.

Oh, then there's the baking I plan to do. Every year I make a spice cake for work from a recipe and friend of my mom's gave her ages ago. It's always a big hit. Then I was thinking I might try the cheesecake I made last year for Thanksgiving for Christmas as there will be enough mouths to gobble it down. Or I might try a recipe for a 3-layer apple cake that I saw on TV. What do you think?

Writing and stitching still both progressing slowly.

I've seen DVDs of his performances and we just couldn't get our act together in time for his last trip to FL. Is it March yet?

I should try the spice cake recipe. You wanna send it up?
Glad you got your tickets. I just got in from shoveling poo and have soooo much to do, including that shopping thing. Argh. But you'll have fun Saturday. We had a great time with those guys last week.

Make the cheesecake.

No, I always make the spice cake, that's not the question. So you think cheesecake would be the better choice? I've made each cake only once. I think you missed out on the apple cake from the family gathering on ROund Hill. I need to make a shopping list...

Yay to you on the quote and the songs. The ones you didn't get I wasn't sure if you would but hopefully someone else will
