Why does the August long weekend not have a name? Just August Long or Civic Holiday. Couldn't anyone think of a cool name, like Last Chance Before School or It's Hot Go Swimming or Less then Half-way to Christmas. OK maybe that is why nobody named it:) Anyways we spent this day quietly at home. Leah's closet was in desperate need of a clean. This is MOST of her clothes. In the end we took a black garbage sac full to charity and a white sac to the garbage. Seriously, it was crazy. Oh and another sac full or clothes that are too big. Why would you keep a closet full of 3 sizes of clothes. Well I have a in-my-dreams-someday-I-will-get-into box in the basement, but I am not 11. In my box the pants are not really short because I have grown out of them. We got it done though.
Dave took Blake back out to the farm again. They did not stay long. Dave is getting a little frustrated. He has gone out twice to doing cutting and the weather is not cooperating. Soon it could be to late. The girls and I cleaned, ran, and did church stuff. Then I made this amazing cake. A couple days ago I pinned from a friend this caramel cake with caramel icing. If you are a caramel lover this is a must try. It is still on my Pinterst Dessert and Drink board, so go repin it and make it. It takes a little extra time, but soooo worth. Even Dave said it was good after asking me a number of times why I couldn't just make chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream icing. Usually I can't make cake from scratch. I don't know why I can make pie or bread or anything else but not cake from scratch:( But this turned out. Light and fluffy and very good. Now go make it. And enjoy.
