Real time live bloggin' from Pure Florida ...
Here's the poppyseed birthday cake in progress ... deep inside it's secret oven hideaway. It has about 20 more minutes to go. I'll update when it comes out.
Here's the lunar eclipse in progress as seen from my secret PFHQ hideaway. It has a couple of hours to go. I'll update it in a little while after the lunar scenery changes a bit.
The poppyseed cake is out of the oven and cooling off. I went outside and cut a sliver of cabbage palm stalk to stick in it to check for doneness ... that's the green thing laying across the cake pan. She just has to cool off a bit.
UPDATE OF ECLIPSE!
The clouds rolled in for a little while and then slipped away to reveal a rapidly eclipsing moon.
Once it gets this far along, it really seems to move rapidly across the face of the moon.
Final eclipse update. T'was too dark after this point and the rest of the event would be essentially a reverse of these photos, so I'll stop here.
It was really, really amazing ... for once clear skies during a sky event!!
Last cake update too.
All it needs now is candles and coffee ... or milk.
I may take tomorrow off from blogging since I posted twice today and it's past my bedtime.
