Since I’ll be baking a cake while my readers grab their morning cup of hot tea (or alternative), today's blog is very short. I'll tell you what the cake is for in a moment.
I read where it’s a good idea for a blogger to stick to one theme. Would it fit the criteria if I say my theme is what matters most to me in life?
First and foremost, that would be my husband, whose birthday it is today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIMOTHY! Yes, I'm making him an angel-food cake and spending the day enjoying his company, unplugged from the electronic world.
The other love of my life is my son, Alan. He’s a civil engineer and will be visiting us later. It doesn't seem quite fair to say so little about him compared to my next family member, but there'll be other blogs.
Last but not least is our dog, Julius Caesar. He’s a blue-dappled mini-Dachshund, though his front legs are suspiciously long for a purebred. We used to say he was tiny but mighty, except now he’s, well, just mighty. His breed has a strong hunger drive.
Here are some photos of our little guy…

What pets do you have? I love hearing what people name their pets, don't you?
