But good thing I don't want to! It is such a beautiful day after all the last two weeks that rained so much. I dumped our rain gauge 3 times and had 2.25 inches this morning when I dumped it. That totals 17.25 inches in two weeks. No wonder it was flooding everywhere!
So far my day has been wonderful! I made sure Frank was in a good mood by preparing Muesli and St. John's Wort Tea for breakfast. The tea promotes good moods, and sometimes he really needs it!

We had lunch with Carrie at Jason's Deli; a huge baked potato with a fruit salad. No presents were forthcoming. But I was assured that when I went to her house on Saturday for dinner I would receive a present at that time.
Charlene called and was the first to sing Happy Birthday to me! It was wonderful to hear from Charles saying Leslie was discharged following her stroke last week. I hope to visit her this weekend. The concern at the hospital was the patients with the flu compromising her condition so they let her go home. She will do rehab as an outpatient.
That is a good thing.
|Mouth Watering Doberge|
For those interested in the Doberge origin check this out from NOLA.com:
The 1987 privately published "Let's Bake with Beulah Ledner" cookbook by Maxine Wolchansky, Ledner's daughter, explains how the "Doberge Queen of New Orleans" adapted the famous Hungarian dobos torta to the local climate and gave it a French-sounding name, doberge. Ledner retired in 1981 at the age of 87 and died at age 93, leaving a legacy that lives on in her recipes (bought by Gambino's) for this popular cake that can be found and all over New Orleans.
My grandmother lived just down from the Ledner's Bakery. When I stayed with her on the weekends, after Mass at St. Roch's or St. Louis Cathedral with Aunt Annie, we would go to the bakery on the corner and get sweets for Sunday Dinner when my parents came to pick me up.
I am stuffed, from toes to gills. I could not eat a pinch more of anything.
Have had a wonderful wonderful day with my friends and family. I even loved the bag the purse came in!
The tea worked, Frank was nice all day long! LOL
