This cake is the bomb!

This cake is the bomb!

It was a Bachelor weekend for me as B. went up to Ottawa for the weekend with a bunch of her girlfriends. So It was just the dog and I. Dogs are much better companions than cats. I like cats more overall, but Tanga is a good buddy when Iโ€™m alone at home. Saturday we went for a long Bruce Trail hike. We didnโ€™t see anyone, just three white tail deer. I always see deer in that section of the trail. I watched the Sabresโ€™ faltering continue both Friday and Saturday night. Pretty brutal play. I also got my haircut. My hairstylist is a Leafs fan so it always leads to interesting discussion. Iโ€™m curious if this will work.

Are you ready for some football? I thought I wasโ€ฆ suddenly around noon I developed a massive headache, fever, upset stomach, dry wretchingโ€ฆ Iโ€™m guessing it was food poisoning, but I canโ€™t imagine what it could have been. Strangely as quickly as the symptoms developed they passedโ€ฆI felt okay by 2PMโ€ฆ Very strange. So the family ended up coming over to watch the Superbowl. Iโ€™m very happy to enjoy sports in HDโ€ฆ it really kicks it up a notch. Superbowl 44 was the favoured Colts v. the Saints. It was a great game and the underdog Saints ended up bringing the championship to New Orleans! Congrats to the city, Iโ€™m sure it can use a little positive energy. Food. My gawdโ€ฆ both my sister and mother brought a ton of food both for dinner and dessert. We will eat well for a few days. The winner by far however was the cake my sister brought. There is a bakery in Orillia called Mariposa and they make something called the Bomb cake. it isnโ€™t much to look at, but so good. Chocolate, peanut butter whipped cream and chocolate cakeโ€ฆ yes hon I saved you a piece. It was a nice ending to the weekend.
