Just To Let You Know I’m Still Here

Blueberry Raspberry Cake

You know, there are days that alter your priorities. Like, you decide to do some ironing before going to bed (because you’ve been falling asleep at 5am for the last 3 weeks and you need to find a way to relax before sleep) and get an electric shock when plugging in the iron. As they’re taking you to the hospital in an ambulance, all you can think of is that you never again want to see that expression on your relatives’ faces and that nothing really matters except for your own and your family’s health and safety. Just half an hour ago you were doing your chores, planning your tomorrow and text messaging to your friends - it’s unbelievable that your cozy and comfortable life has an evil face too, and sometimes it turns with that evil face towards you. When you finally come back from the hospital, you delete half of the bookmarks on your blogroll, because you don’t feel like reading about shopping and first date ideas. All you want is to be forever with your family, at your home, even if there’s too little space and you’ve wanted a new sofa for ages.

But, at least, this cured my insomnia and I’ve slept for 12 hours in a row :)

I’ve also received a bunch of silly questions at the hospital, like “do you have bared wires there?”… I guess every doctor and every nurse asked me if I had been messing with bared wires!

And here’re just a few shots of the birthday cake my Mom made for her own birthday (I’m afraid I made her a bad present) - it’s another variation of Strawberry Cake we made for sister’s birthday in June. This time it was made with two types of blueberries and raspberries. I liked it even better than the strawberry cake, it resembled a fluffy parfait with whipped cream and fresh berries. The large garden blueberries, which I generally find too watery compared to forest blueberries, worked out perfectly on top of the cake. I will ask Mom and post a recipe later - there’s little difference from the Strawberry Birthday Cake. Right now I’m off to bed - my own bed… home sweet home!

    Oh No! What an ordeal you have gone through! So happy you are home and recuperating. Who would have thought something like this could happen from something as simple as ironing!

    Glad to stop by and visit with you!

    PS my 18 year old daughter is having a really hard time with insomnia. Falling asleep is so hard and she is awake through the wee hours of the morning before sleep finally comes. Not sure how to help her.

  2. Whoa, that’s crazy. At least you got some sleep ;)
    I want that cake and I don’t even like strawberry shortcake!!

      On the other hand, after watching the inbeitavle YouTube clips and some Swansea and Roma matches from the past few years, I was prepared to fall head over heels in love with Borini, and he did not disappoint. Nothing like an early first goal to bed in a striker; a few more and maybe we’ll have not only a high-energy pursuit machine, but the ruthless poacher we’ve so desperately missed.Know you mentioned it Nate but hard to underestimate just how important it is to have Reina back to his sweeper-keeping best. Pretty sure any decline of his form in the last season or two is down to changing his role away from what he was so good at under Rafa.Also, zonal marking. Thank Christ.Elsewhere even with possibility of Downing’s revival (man, did he ever fit in well today), still want to see another winger (anything we get for Cole, even wage reduction, is gravy); also hope we flog Adam and keep Shelvey around. And if Carroll does go, a forward, possibly on loan–don’t need top shelf goods, just someone with willing legs and, like Georger noted, positional flexibility. The Allen signing is huge because it lets us rest Lucas sometimesI know there will be some times this season where the system breaks down, but good god am I looking forward to seeing things come together. Pretty sure the first XI is a match for anyone excepting maybe Man City, but past that point is where the success of the season will be determined.

      Hot Damn!! Glad I found this incredibly uusefl resource… and it comes from the Google Gods themselves.For starters you’ve led by example, for instance a cursory glance at this blog reveals to us in the SEO industry the answer to an important question:”What should a business blog look like in terms of layout and use of feedburner tools?”I feel quite vindicated now!I’m greedily snatching up every thing I see here!

      This information was hpfulel, but I noticed a lot of this advice was difficult for those of us who have a website hosted by Live. Since I cannot verify my account with google due to not be able to enter codes in the heading of my site, it makes it difficult to optimize, etc. Do you have any tips for us Live website owners?

    • I simply had to thank you so much yet again. I’m not certain what I would’ve implemented without the entire opinions shown by you about my industry. It previously was a very fearsome scenario in my view, however , taking note of this well-written fashion you resolved it made me to cry for gladness. I’m just happy for this guidance and even trust you really know what a powerful job you have been providing teaching other individuals through a web site. I am certain you have never met all of us.

    It’s good that Google is trying to help on getitng more people from different cultures to read our content, however this doesn’t mean that we are going to get indexed by Google’s additional languages or Search Engines in different languages so basically is a good approach but is not necessary the best approach to reach new visitors.On the other hand is computer generated translation and is a great translation for a free service, but if you’re serious about reaching new emerging markets you should try to really focus on a translated website, there’s one particular company that I think has a very clever idea and created a hybrid translation method that actually is taken as %100 human translation without the big over head of creating a brand new website, if you want to take a look at it their website is for creating a great and easy to use tool for us with budget limitations.
