As promised, here is a picture of the cake I did for my friend's wedding shower this afternoon.
I think it turned out rather nice, and Bethany said the flowers match her actual wedding bouquet. Score! Which makes me happy, since I couldn't find a darn thing I actually had wanted to decorate with. Wedding colors are blue and silver, and the blue beading at the waistband was the best I could do. Blue flowers were pretty hard to find, for some reason.
In other news, I think I've fixed my car! As we were leaving the restaurant this afternoon, my car firmly refused to move. Great. Here, I am, it's raining, and I have my mother with me. And we aren't far from home, but I do not want to have to maneuver a wheelchair through mud and gravel, in the rain. So, remembering that my second choice (after fuel delivery system) for identifying its problem was the air intake, I popped the hood. Darned if my air filter wasn't in all crooked and wadded up, and getting worse all the time, apparently. I straightened it out and made sure everything was as tightly closed up as it was getting, and now the car seems to be behaving just fine. I am a happy sponge!
Betting that helps my gas mileage, too. :) I also feel both a little smug (because I fixed my car!), and a little silly (because I didn't clue into the problem sooner).
But, that's the quick update for the day. Happy weekend, everybody!
