LIFE update


Sometimes it is just nice to show you what I've been up to. The weekend of March 17-19 ... it was a quiet & calm March weekend. The hubs and I jumped in the car and went to new kayakin' stop here in Virginia ... got a few rowin' moments in before a thunderstorm popped up. Rumbling away, we decided, we best be getting our butt out of the water, ASAP!! Wild how those thunderstorms come out of nowhere!! It was a gorgeous day, only took my Iphone. 



I made a homemade Angel Food cake. Have you ever had to get 12 egg whites? ... separating eggs is not an easy task. Ever needed cake flour before? Take a cup of all purpose flour, take out 2 TBS of that flour, put back in 2 TBS of corn starch. Simple as that!! NEAT, HUH??! Did you know that it take 30 mins, 2 have something become "room temperature"? I really did learn a whole bunch from this homemade baking recipe. SO FUN, not sure I will be  making another angel food cake a while ...but fun all the same. You see an angel food cake has to be inverted to cool ... no bottle that we have in the house is the right size to fit within my pan. So I got the coffee percolator, which was the right size, then to hold down the percolator I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. My brother did ask me, WHY DIDN'T U USE WATER N THE PERCOLATOR? Honestly, I didn't think that way? My Dad ask me, you know the cake is not flat, I didn't think about that either? Does a cake have to be flat to cool? No clue??! It was delicious, by the way, with fresh strawberries and everything. YUMMY GOOD!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy your day! Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Next time you make one cut it across in half..layer it with black raspberry ice cream (or the ice cream of your choice) and freeze it..Yummy

A woman has to be inventive now and then Beth. lol The angel food cake sounds good but 12 egg whites?? wow. That's a lot of separating.

Homemade Angel Food Cake,YUMMY! My Mom used to make it that way all the time, but that was when we had chickens on the farm and more eggs than we could use.It is the best.

My mother used to make angel food cake, and then break it up and put it into a strawberry pudding.

Had to laugh about putting water in the percolator...but it does sound delicious.
What a lovely cake (and innovative way to cool it)...I've never made an angel food cake. I didn't know you can remove 2 T of flour and replace with 2 T corn starch to make cake flour!

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;

Sculptures at Hershey Gardens

Such amazing sculptures there at "Hershey Gardens" ... let's check them out. As I say there are so many areas to walk around there at the gardens ...gorgeous trees to stand under if you are dealing with lots of sun. Great shades. Herb gardens, a perfect place for great visit no matter the season. So fun!! I think my favorite will be the butterfly girl ...she just looks so happy and free. 2nd fave is the girl smelling the rose. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well today. Take care.

Such a well cared for, gorgeous locations for camping and have a ton of fun... this is one of the best campgrounds we have ever stayed in ...Beth how can you say this you might ask? ...the bathrooms were well cared for, gorgeous views, pretty easy access to water for water exercise, kayaking, areas for group togetherness and locations to walk and just time to relax. Even close to many locations of MUST SEE SIGHTS, waterfalls, hiking and suchness. We were there for "Eggs on the Hiawassee" one of our Casita rallies. SO FUN!!



Please enjoy the vlog from that day. You can hear lots of bugs and birds. We just hopped into the waters behind our campsite and just rowed away. We have 2 other couples who did borrow our kayaks to enjoy these waters as well. So fun. I love going out on waters to enjoy the day and take some pics. There are duck families every where, but they didn't like it when you got close ...s…
