my own town

I received word this morning that I am to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony of the town named in my honour. I know . . .I was shocked as well. Who would have thought? I have a hard enough time finding little pens and notepads with my name on it and here it is My own namesake town. Granted the population is quite small, but I have confidence that the numbers will continue to grow. I am tickled pink. After yesterdays kitchen disasters . ..this was fabulous news. Surely with my own town I won't have to worry about mundane things like is my chipped nail in one of the 7 dozen little cheesecakes for my friends open house that now will be offered to only my best and forgiving friends when they pop in for a cup of tea. Yes, things are looking up. I'm feeling optimistic as I venture into my kitchen this morning to tackle Lemon Bars . . . Have a wonderful day my friends and don't let anyone pull your leg.

PS . .thanks Stu for the help with Photoshop

  1. Ooohh...Ohhh...I want a Lovella Town Tee-shirt!

    That way I can *eventually* say:
    "Been there, done that, got the tee shirt!"

    If I start with the tee shirt, I can do the saying backwards!

    Shoulda gotten the Dustin Oklahoma tee shirt while I was there!

  2. By the by, there is a street called Lovella Way in Sacramento Calif.

    If you ever go there, I guess you can have "your own way" all the time.

  3. Are you serious? There is a Lovella Way? I'm a little leary of believing anything this morning.

    Go to Google maps. Put in Lovella Way, Sacramento CA.

  9. How funny! The sad thing is, because of being so busy all day on Sunday, I wasn't able to read your post until April 2. I actually fell for it! Reading the comments reminded me of yesterday's date.

    Your little cheesecakes looked marvelous. Your incident with the stale crumbs reminded me of a pie I made for my then-boyfriend-now-hubby oh-so-many years ago. I was trying to impress him with his favorite pie. I decided to bake the pie just before leaving on the four-hour drive to visit him at college. I mixed everything up, even making a scratch pie crust, and popped it into the oven. It had been in there about 2-3 minutes when my mother walked through the kitchen and asked me if I had intended to "put those eggs in the pie?" The eggs were still in their shells on the counter! She helped me scoop the filling back out and remix the filling. Not good. The pie filling was crunchy. He proposed to me anyway, bless his heart, and he has never criticized my cooking and baking in 29 years of marriage!

  12. I almost fell for it except that I'd read someone else's April Fool's joke when they had help with the photo shop, too. :)
    Very well done, Lovella!
