Goodbye & good riddance Bush, you old bastard.
Today is a very exciting day. And to celebrate Obama’s Inauguration, I made cupcakes. Devils Food, of course, with buttercream frosting.
And I decorated them to show my (finally renewed) sense of pride in being an American. See?:
And before you ask, no there are not exactly 50 stars. My lovely husband enquired whether there were (at that point there were only 9 per cupcake and 9×4=36) and when I said no he laughed. So then I had to make sure there WERE the correct amount of stars. Except I stopped paying attention and went WAY overboard so there are actually 67 stars.
Know any territories that would like to be made into US states?
In other news we got our new dining room table, chairs, stools and side table. S actually saw them in a discount furniture store a week or so ago and we went this past Saturday to take a look. Well, I followed S and fell immediately in love with this set. It’s amazing. It got delivered yesterday and S and I spent the night assembling chairs. Want to see a picture? OK!!
And another shot, showing more chairs and the side table:
It’s a bit dark, but you get the idea. The block of wood in the front of the picture is one of the stools – meant to be the chairs for the table, but we thought they might be a tad uncomfortable so we bought actual chairs as well as some stools. The two dark squares on top of the table are the tops of the “legs” which are two solid square blocks of wood.
