While hubbie entertained g-son I started baking , I baked 24 caramel, 4 chocolate, and 4 pound cakes.The plumbers came in around 11am ,so I had to catch some water to use in my baking just in case they had to leave the water turned off for awhile.
They found out the entire shower faucet was cracked. So they put some water cut-offs on the lines and took the old faucet set to get us a new one. They said it might be tomorrow before they could get back.
The weather has been iffy all day with intermittent clouds and sun but the clouds finally won and the thunder boomers commenced shortly after lunch.
Wednesday is usually cleaning day for the livingroom, hall,office and bedroom but as I looked in the living room and saw g-son spread out with his racetrack and other toys I decided I needed to come up with a "summer" cleaning schedule.
The plumbers were back in the later afternoon and got things all fixed up and all the leaking stopped thankfully.
The rains were nice today, slow and steady with only distant thunder. I poured about 1/4" from the gauge at chore time.
I spent the rest of the day in the kitchen icing caramel and chocolate cakes and getting ready for market. I have the big 10 caramel cake order for the camp tomorrow plus a couple other 1 and 2 cake orders so I should have a pretty good day.
Since I wasn't out of the kitchen long enough today to make any photos for this post it is a good time to finish up the June decade pics with what was going on in June 2003.
Back in those times we were making a family trip to the Outer Banks of NC each summer. This year #1 son and daughter took their best friends along on the trip.
Getting ready to cross the bridge onto the island,this bridge has since been replaced after one the hurricanes in later years caused some structural damage.
We stopped at the Wright Brother's memorial where they took the first flight.
We stopped at the Bodie Island light house.
This is hubbie and daughter with Andrea as the photographer.
At the bottom of the island chain we drove on the ferry for a ride to Okracoke Island.
The Outer Banks is one of my favorite places to visit.
I am writing this on Thursday night and back dating since it was midnight when I finished icing and headed for bed last night.
Grateful to God for the blessings of this day.
