Pancakes

   My arthritis doesn't stop me from doing everything. I have been making some pretty wicked pancakes with my friend 'D' every time she comes over. We made a letters, stars, swirls, hearts, and perfect circles. Last time we made them, they were either burned or practically just batter. This time, however, we passed!
   "D, how do you expect me to flip a swirl?" I asked. I was flipping and monitoring the pancakes while she was pouring the batter in unique shapes on the pan. We laughed as I attempted it, which only broke it into two pieces. The second piece was in the shape of a liver. So I ate the liver pancake, and she got the swirl.
    We don't make full-sized pancakes, only Silver Dollars. So it took us about an hour, even though we had two pans going at once. I have determined that I like experiencing the process more than eating the pancakes.
    I read a recent blog post where the author wrote everything that was on her bulletin board. I decided that I will do this, just for the fun of it, and for your amusement.

4 Drawings - One of a sunset, one of a person, one of a kitchen, and the other a person as well. (All drawn by me, except the kitchen one, which was drawn by my sister)
Foam Cross - That I made in like 2nd grade in Sunday school. It says faith and has hearts and a dove (all stickers)
California Postcard - My fifth grade teacher went to California and brought us back postcards.
Fancy Name Thing - I drew it, and it says Rachel, with different colors around it. Hard to explain.
Birthday Card - From my friend 'D'!
Note - A very sweet letter from my friend 'A'.
Amusement Park Ticket - From our 6th grade field trip
Bakery Contact Card - I got it after they let me try a free cupcake before a running race.
Bookmark - My sister made it, and it says my name.
Build-A-Bear Certificate - From last summer. I'm convinced that I'm secretly five years old.
Hospital Bracelet - I got a pink hospital bracelet because the nurses love me. I am showing it off. ;)
A Giant, Orange 'R' - That my friend made for me as a birthday gift.
Collage of Song Titles - My friend randomly made this for me, and I absolutely adore it.

That's all for now!

Love,
Rachel
