BAKING

Made my favorite, easy "go to" cake, after returning from my 3 times a week Physical Therapy session.

Needed something sweet to take my mind off my aching joints (& the rain deluge w/ wind - thank goodness it finally stopped).

Bless everyone in my city celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Just wish it was not in my neighborhood!

The celebration is half a block up the street from my apartment building, in the city's public square - has been ongoing since 10:00am, even through the earlier rain. It is really getting on my last nerve; the incessent thrump, thrump, thrump from the music, is fast driving me crazy. Hard to hear my TV - have the volumn turned up 8 notches from my usual 14.

Only thing left to do is put in some earphones & listen to music, although, even that will not fully block out the sound. Oh well, Happy Cinco de Mayo. No, really! I mean it!




P.S.: Could the above images be considered stereotypes?? If so, truly sorry.

AT LAST!

That raucous noise (alright, music) coming from the city public square, has finally stopped; I think the city ordinance states they were supposed to quit at 10pm - they played & sang until 10:15 pm.

Now I am aware that to most people, 15 extra minutes does not sound like that big of a deal. But, it is when you have been driven insane since early this morning! I'm tempted to contact the Mayor's office, first thing Monday morning & lodge a complaint.

I'm blaming the stress I've been under all day for eating 3 pieces of the cake I baked earlier - only thing I've had to eat all day. Yeah, blame it on Cinco de Mayo, sounds about right to me!
