Salon Bella is doing pink hair extensions and ribbons for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. My daughter and I now have pink hair. I am digging it and thinking this may be a new trend for me! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A hair extension and a ribbon is a very small thing done with a heart full of love and honor for our friends who have/had breast cancer. Ladies...early detection is the key! Please, please feel your boobies and get a mammogram.
As many of my friends know I have a love for the arts (of every sort) I was visiting my granddaughter's dance class on Thursday and there amidst the wee dancers was one teeny, tiny girl with natural, beautiful talent. Sadly, her parents are unable to afford dance lessons for her or her sister. I am pondering a solution to this...maybe a little chat with the studio's owner will provide a way to enable talented children an opportunity to participate. After my hair appointment on Saturday, I had the VW Beetle washed at the Palmetto Dance Center's car wash to support the dancers' competitions. It was heartwarming to see even the youngest student washing cars to earn money. I think most things are appreciated more when they are earned.
After the car washing, it was a trip to the local grocery store. Spending what seemed like a small fortune...I returned home to bake a Hummingbird Cake for our church Boy Scout Bake Sale. I encouraged my darling husband to purchase the cake from the bake sale for our family get together on Sunday thus contributing to the boy scouts, my ego and Sunday dinner! It was a delightful, busy weekend filled with service, fun and family!
Here is my lunch today...EVERYONE is out of the office and I am here with Hummingbird Cake!!! I am counting it as a fruit...it has lots of bananas and pineapple in it...that is my story and I AM sticking to it.
Christina. Apparently it is one of Southern Living's most requested recipes of all time. It is definitely scrumptious! What is there not to love about a cake full of goodness with cream cheese frosting? The recipe can be found here.
So my pretties, have a lovely day...enjoy the beautiful weather...celebrate if you have the day off...you know what? Just celebrate!!!
