24 Weeks.

Look, a picture on time! I'm very impressed with myself and the hubs. Not only did we manage to take the picture on Friday, but I'm posting it right away. As you may have noticed last week's image just did happen.

I feel like my belly has exploded over night and is officially getting in the way. It is funny how you are used to your size. I find that I keep hitting my belly since I'm not use to extra clearance need to pass. I'm just waiting for the day when I won't be able to squeeze behind a table or something. I'm lucky I have done anything too clumsy or embarrassing... yet!

So there you go, me and the nugget at 24 weeks!

Happy Valentine's Day. Now get some Whoopie.

Whoopie pie that is!

As a treat my friend Joy and I made 72 red velvet whoopie pies yesterday. OK, so there were a couple of casualties. We had to make sure that they were delicious before we handed them out. They are delicious.... dangerously delicious!

I made a slew of them for my Valentine to take to work. His submarine is in the shipyard so the guys have been working very hard, long hours. I hope these tasty treats make them smile.

Aren't they beautiful! I took this image from the website with the recipe. If you get a chance make sure to try these Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.

Singapore Treasure.

While I was exploring Singapore I was introduced to calligraphy brushes. Not just any only calligraphy, but beautiful Chinese decorative brushes. They come in a variety of sizes, I saw some several feet tall and others several inches. I purchased seven of them in a different styles and in "reasonable" sizes.

I love them.

However, when I got home I couldn't quite figure out how to display my treasures so they sat tucked away on a shelf. As I gave up on finding a creative way to show them off I asked a friend, the wonderful, Caitlin to use her contacts to get a stand from Chinatown in Singapore. And well, what do you know I received the PERFECT birthday gift from her. It even had exactly seven hooks for my brushes.

So here they are proudly displayed on my desk!

Aren't they gorgeous!

The brushes are made with horse hair. 

 Some better lighting from the Lanai.
