It’s Friday!

Hello there.  I’m feeling pretty good for only three hours sleep.  Ask me again tonight when we’re at a poker get-together at some friends’ house and it’s midnight.  Yes, I’m socializing!  The horror!  I have all day to psyche myself up to not be a freak about it.  Oh, the pain.

I made another Tiramisu Cake yesterday to take.  I’m usually the one that brings the dessert for everyone and I thought I’d impress everyone with this beautiful three-layer cake.  I tweaked it this time by adding more coffee and Kahlua to it and I also doubled the filling.  I’ll repost the recipe after we eat it and see if it’s better than the first one that was made strictly by the recipe.


For those of you who don’t know, this is Kahlua, a Mexican coffee flavored liqueur. 

I small_heart Kahlua

In other news…


I couldn’t get a good picture of this potholder to save my soul.  I made it last night in about three hours while watching TV.  It has a separate back and then is crocheted together so it’s nice and thick.  Here’s another pic taken inside:


See what I mean?  Not a good picture.  If I try to lighten it up or enhance the colors, the red gets way too bright and looks fake and blurry.  Anywho…You can find the free pattern HERE.


funny people dividerThey are so cute!


In celebrity news…

We were in the grocery store the other day when The Captain turned to me and said…

Captain:  Hey, did you hear that actress – what’s her name – Reese something?  She was stabbed while jogging in the park last night.  What’s her last name?  Reese…

ME:  Witherspoon?

Captain:  No, with a knife!


Did I get you?


  1. You got me!

    Cute potholder and I L-O-V-E Kahlua. It has such an amazing flavor.

  2. Hi Pammy!

    Kahlua is good...:-)

    And that joke... well... " lets just leave it at that. " ;-)


  3. Love the pot holder, love Kahlua, love the joke! Love Reese!! Hey...don't you socialize?????? Have fun Toots, and take a nap!

  4. That's my kind of joke!!! I love stupid, corny jokes dang it!! I'm gonna tell it to somebody today. Don't know who yet...but I'm gonna.

  5. I've not had Khalua for years, but I love it poured over vanilla ice cream ... perfecto!

    That cake recipe looks good and so does your pot holder. I can't believe I burnt myself today - it's a shame for someone who crochetes kitchen accessories to not use a pot holders!

  6. p.s. good joke! I've never heard it before and at my age, I heard most of them...I have got to remember that one!

  7. Korny joke. Sounds like something Art would say.

    Hope your cake is a big hit and you have fun tonight. I don't like Kahlua but Art loves the stuff so we usually have some around.

  11. Anything with Kahlua is worth my time. If I had some in the house right now, I'd pour it over ice cream and when the it was all gone, I'd lick the bowl clean.

    FUuny thing, I HATE coffee but LOVE Kahlua.
