Last weekend for my Dad's visit. went to the practice Air Show on the Air Force Base on Friday. sad time for our Air Force "family" with the crash of the C17 this week.

the Blue Angels are still parked on the tarmac outside my office building. I love me some Air Show stuff!

Made 2 plum cakes(Marian Burros recipe) with Splenda and used a 9 inch pie plate. I find that baking with Splenda makes things drier than normal. I add a few tablespoons of sugar to the mix to help with browning and just for a bit of real sugar taste. maybe I should add some yogurt or sour cream for more moisture. they were good anyway, and more of a coffeecake than a dessert.

Saturday night baseball banquet at the University food service hall. A bit disappointed that they served frozen chicken cordon bleu. desserts were lovely though. apple tart and marble cheesecakes.

Put Dad on the plane for Chicago Sunday morning. I packed a small tote with lunch and magazines and his medicine---and yes, he forgot it on the plane. Alaska Airlines called me last night because of the medicine. We'll work it out today.

Back to work today after 2 weeks off, but I'm so very tired.
