Updates on this and that

I finally had class and did a fondant cake. I'm not overly happy with it but it's ok. I was supposed to use gumpaste for the flowers and used fondant. Oh, well! I'll learn. I made 2 batches of fondant yesterday and a double batch of butter cream icing. I baked 3 cakes today. One was a 12 x 18, a guitar, and an 8" round. The first will be a pay check for so many years of service, the guitar is for Christopher's 18th birthday, and the round is for class Monday!!!!
Now for good news about Jeremy.
This is from Susan, his wife.............
We received good news today, The Leukemia is in remission!!Thank God! We will be in Indianapolis on Sunday evening he starts round 2 on Monday, we got the keys to the apartment on Tuesday when he had the bone marrow done. Jeremy shouldn't have to be hospitalized unless he gets sick or develops an infection. So we should see you in church sometime next week!!
Pretty awesome, huh?
A dear friend passed away, Greg Burket's grandmother, Nellie Brinkman. I need to get ready to go to the viewing so this will be short! later!

Just life......

Well, I didn't get to have my cake class because when I got there the teacher had gotten word that a family member had been killed in a motercycle accident. Tuesday was violin lessons, Wednesday was church and I had the lesson for Chris, Thursday was a school field trip with Brooke to Clowes Hall, (they should spell it like it sounds!!!) and Friday I picked Brooke up early for us to go to Louisville. We took momma to see Aunt Lois. We had a great time except I was around alot of cigarrette smoke and got really sick. I mostly lost my voice, which is probably a blessing to my family! lol
Now for the good news...........Jeremy is doing good, he is eating more and quoting Taylanee, his daughter..."he is bald now which i don't care i am just glad he is home now and he went for a check up and he got good news he don't have to go back till tuesday and his white cells are going up and his backmorel is 150,000 which that means that he can drive now!"

Just Stuff

Wow, what a busy week I had last week and this week isn't much better! I just hope I don't do as many goofy things as I did today. I burnt the chocolate twice on some candy I was making, dumped in too much powdered sugar and had to take some out, dumped in way too many oats in the cookies that Christopher was helping me make (I was TRYING to hurry) and then when I was FINALLY going to get to sit down with my FULL glass of iced tea I somehow knocked it over and spilled it on my skirt, feet and legs, momma's carpet, get the picture!
Anyway, the last I heard from Taylanee was that Jeremy is doing pretty good. He's home and I'm not sure when he's coming back here for the next round of treatments. He started losing his hair so just shaved it off. I don't blame him. So far so good and when I hear more from Jeremy I'll post it!
