Cake Wrecks

Whether it's for a birthday, the holidays, or just because, people love to bake (and eat) cakes. While boxed cake mixes and cans of pre-made frosting work just fine (and usually taste great), there are times when you just want something a little more special. For some of us, that means breaking out our cake…

POPSUGAR Reading Challenge 2020: Week Twenty-Two

Good morning, everyone! It's hard to believe we are only a couple short days away from the beginning of June, but here we are. My grandmother's condition continues to remain about the same.

While I desperately want to talk about…

Sideways Stories From Wayside School

Good morning, everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful week so far. It took multiple naps and a really good night's sleep on Sunday night, but I finally managed to regain my energy after participating in the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. The Readathon was a great chance to read a lot of wonderful…
