Fast food funny

We are on the road, this time not a vacation. Packed and shipped! ETA is Wednesday, early evening.

We stopped for fast food, which is very rare these days. Ro was hanging out on Alan's lap and the girl at the window asked, "is that thing real?"

Poor Ro cat.

Welcome to the land of boxes!

I am moving away... cardboard and packing tape are my friend... I love h-haul packing paper. I have too much stuff.

I have lived in Oregon for 12 years. It is only the second place I have ever lived. Oregon is green and beautiful. Waterfalls, the ocean, and friends. Now I have a whole new state to explore. New food, new hiking, new friends, and now family! We will be living with Alan's family until we find a place of our own. And I will be closer to my family, drivable distance.

Good-bye green Oregon.

This is my 4th of July fun. What better way to celebrate than a cake?! The cake is caramel and the frosting is too.

I sprayed a high percentage alcohol on a piece of crumpled parchment and then I cooked a mixture of sugar, water, and corn syrup to 300 degrees and poured it on the parchment. The alcohol evaporated and created this bubbled look.

Happy 4th!

Hope you are all enjoying time with family, grillin' the meats, and enjoying ambrosia salad. :)

Oh and, don't blow off your hand lighting fireworks.
