Tag and Twins

My twin pear cakes that I made for two Christmas parties...one tonight and one tomorrow! This is the same recipe as in an earlier post. I will make the caramel fresh for each cake.

This is what surrounded me when I took this photo.

1) My trusty notepad that is always laying around in case I need to make a list!
2) My mini pointsetta, I love having flowers on the table and even better if it is an actual plant rather than cut flowers!
3) A receipt from Sears for some tights that I need to return.
4) My huge set of office keys! There are at least 15 keys on that ring!
5) Mini Swiss Army knife. It has great little scissors for fine work.
6) Our set of dinner (black) and ambiance lighting (red and white) candles that are pretty much permanent table fixtures.
7) A pile of shirts that I am cutting up and using as part of different sewing projects. On top of these, the two long tubes are light bulbs for our new fish tank that we are setting up.
8) My purse which is inevitably on the table or one of the kitchen chairs...on top of some light reading (yeah right...scientific papers are almost never light!) for a manuscript I am writing.
9) A new CD from my favorite Quebecois group Les Cowboys Fringants, this album is called L'Expedition.
10) My sewing machine tucked back into its bag but at the ready for another project!

You don't realize how much stuff you can be surrounded by until you have to do this!!! We always have to fight against entropy (disorder) and I think most times it wins!

This second photo is part of a game called "the real deal" tag. I was tagged by Sherrie from Frenchy's Finds. Actually, she tagged everyone who reads her blog!

Here are the rules (copied from Frechy's Finds):

"Here's the low down.... take a picture the way you would normally do to post on your blog, preferably crop it to showcase the subject. Then show us the "real deal"... the nitty gritty daily clutter that we sometimes try to avoid posting. Talk about the messes you cut out in the cropped picture. We'll still love you!!! Then tag at least two people and link back to your post. OK? Sound fun? Can't wait to be invited into everyone's real life."

Like on Frenchy's Finds, I am tagging all who read this blog that have one of their own!
Have a good Thursday!
