Pumpkin Butter Cake

So I made Paula Deen's Pumpkin Butter Cake last night. I have to say, this is a serious crowd pleaser anytime of year (if you like pumpkin). We are having a little Halloween celebration today at work. They are so popular that I get requests!

John is at home sick with a cold. I have it too but I seem to be on the mend while he is just coming down with it. I fixed him hot cocoa and oatmeal, fed him Tylenol and Alka-Seltzer Cold Medicine before going off to work myself. I imagine we are in for a few days of moaning and groaning until he is well again.

This is my second cold this fall. ENOUGH ALREADY! We got our flu shot so hopefully, we will be healthier the rest of the season.

Song Lyrics

I’m Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
Bow when I go by.
I’m a corporation now,
Not me, myself and I.
Oh how that marriage license works
On chambermaids and hotel clerks.
Oh, sit me in the softest seat,
Quick, a cushion for my feet.
Do for me, buy for me, lift me, carry me,
Finally got a guy to marry me!
I do my nails,
Read up on sales,
All day the records play.
Then he comes home, I tell him
Oy--what a day I had today!
I swear I’ll do my wifely job,
Just sit at home--become a slob!

Funny Girl

I have been considering starting a blog for a little while. However, having read the blogs of others, I hesitated to get caught up in the great blogging whatsit. Some are very, very good and therefore, intimidating; some of them are incredibly boring and therefore, cautionary. I think I can strike a happy medium and so have decided to give it a try.

On April 26, 2008, I married my best friend much to my surprise. I had always enjoyed being single. I knew John when we were children. I was his Sunday School teacher when he was a teenager and I was in my twenties. We lost touch for a few years and then we got back in touch in August, 2006. It was at a time when he needed a friend. So we started doing friend things together. After six months or so, he wanted more but I didn't so he waited patiently for two months until I did. By October, 2007 we were engaged. We've been married six months now.

Part of my hesitancy to get married was the prospect of having someone else around all the time for the rest of my life. But, since it is John, I am okay with it. As schmaltzy as it may sound, I am a better me with him. We love each other very much.

The title of my blog comes from the movie Funny Girl. The day after John and I were engaged, I went to my friend, Muriel, and said "I am going to be a Sadie." She immediately sang out "SADIE, SADIE MARRIED LADY!" bless her. I have moved from being a happy singleton to being a happy Sadie.
