On Top of Spaghetti...

Not covered in meatballs, at any rate!

Seems like my Thursday recipe post for meatballs was "post"poned again! :(  Gary went in for some minor surgery on Thursday and I overestimated the amount of free time that I would have while he recuperated!  In the last four days, I have logged about 500km in carting the kidlets around to swim practice, gymnastics, birthday parties and shopping!

He's doing well and on the road to recovery - in fact, the kids and I are dragging him to see How to Train Your Dragon this afternoon! 

We've all been waiting for this to come out and the reviews have all been fantastic!  I'll be sure to let you know what the gang thinks when we get home...

I also have photos to share from the tea party last weekend!  For those of you who may not know, my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2009.  Last year, she hosted a tea party on International Women's Day.  Now, if you don't know my sister, then you've never been to a party!  She served tea, purchased at Harrod's of London while on a trip to the UK with her daughter, who is now working abroad there (*waving madly at you, Sarah!*), along with scones and Devon cream, finger sandwiches and all kinds of tasty delights.

Due to her diagnosis this year, she was unable to host on that day again, but wanted to have a fundraiser tea, to raise money for the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation, who has been so incredible to her on this journey of kicking some cancer A$$! :)

So, miraculously, with a strength that I attribute to very few people, she organized, baked and hosted a tea party for almost 40 women!  Everything was delicious and I met alot of wonderful new friends and got to visit with some old ones too, in between snapping photos!

Stay tuned - I'll share them in a few days!  Now I have to run before my family leaves without me! :)


  1. I want to see this too! we are thinking Friday when we are all off work! :)

  2. I am glad she has the energy to do this. My mom passed away 6 months ago to breast cancer...yesterday was to be her 57th birthday.
    My fingers are crossed that she continues to kick ASS.


Thank you for your comments - I appreciate the feedback!
