Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Monday woes are Tuesday's pros



It's time again to step up into the lime light. Where did you shine? Did you get your to-do list completed? Did you make something fabulous in the kitchen? Did you step on the scale and see the needle drop? Please tell!!!

Did you read my Not Me's from yesterday? No? Good, then continue reading...

Here's what I have to Toot about:

Our neighbors decided the day before that they would host a Memorial Day party. I was asked to bring a dessert. With such little time, I came up with the ingenious idea to buy a simple lemon bundt cake from the market along with a quart of strawberries. I slid that yummy cake onto my own platter, sliced up those fresh strawberries and lined them around the cake and even filled the middle. Voila! A beautiful tasty dessert and every last bite was eaten!

And while at this party, everyone was insisting that I let my adorable little toddler get into the pool even though we didn't come prepared to swim. How could I let all of those Glynis fans down? They really enjoyed watching Glynis giggle and squirm in the frigid water. Great entertainment for all.

Normally on Wednesdays I shoot up to my son's school and volunteer in his classroom, but being that school is almost over and there is less to do, I decided to go visit my husband's new office. Glynis and I even brought him a plant to sit in his big sunlit window. It really made his day.

And I finally made it up into the attic to retrieve the boxes and boxes of baby clothes that Glynis has outgrown. I took a few pictures and posted them on Craigslist. I finally got my first call this evening. I'm hoping to make a few dollars and then donate the rest of the lot to a friend's new grand daughter and to the local children's hopital thrift store. It'll be really nice to have that clutter out of the house.

Now it's your turn. Write your Tootie post and include the smashingly cute button from over on my side bar. Do you know how to do that? Just copy the code beneath and paste it right into your post. Easy Breezy. Then come back here to leave your link using Mister Linky. And don't forget to chirp away in my comment section below. That makes it way more fun!
Can't wait to listen and learn all about how wonderful you are. I'm a fan of YOU and God loves you too! (I know, that's kind of corny...sorry)
**ONCE AGAIN, MISTER LINKY IS HAVING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY. IT MAY OR MAY NOT APPEAR FOR YOU, BUT THEY'RE WORKING ON THE ISSUES. IF IT IS NOT WORKING, JUST LEAVE A COMMENT SO WE'LL KNOW WHERE TO FIND YOUR TOOTIE POST**
