An Aged Elephant And Master Of The Grill

Tuesday July 25th –



I had been hired to make a unicorn cake for a birthday and that morning was my time to finish creating it, as I had the cake and icing all ready.

Things started going from sort of bad, to worse and then just plain awful real quick 😜

The cakes sides had crumbled a little more than I’d hoped for an easy icing process and the no name brand of icing, though it tasted fine, went on fairly sticky and began dripping off the sides.

I figured the fondant would fix that issue and then it would continue on simply from that point… but no.

The fondant was a different brand from last time too and though it rolled out decently, as soon as it hit the icing, the two immediately bonded in a gooey, sticky mess.

Jem Moment for having finally made a unicorn cake!

Jem Moment: Unicorn Immigration


First of all, today is the day we got the news that Michiel’s permanent residence application was accepted and he can now, officially immigrate! 😊

We knew he’d been accepted and that it was only a matter of time but I guess we didn’t realise that time would come so quickly.

So, those horror stories about trying to immigrate and move? Were just that, horror stories to freak us out 😬😝

No the paperwork and information required wasn’t pleasant nor easy either at times but we are so thankful that it all went through smoothly once they were sent in and how the Lord worked with the timing and process of it all.


So Canada, meet Mike.

Mike, say hello to Canada 😉

Speaking of immigrating to Canada, isn’t it funny how you see something your whole life and don’t really notice it?

For me, I’m speaking of  The Coat of Arms of Canada, seen on a big safe in our little local post office.

I’ve seen it hundreds of times and never really looked at it until today and when I did, I noticed it had… a unicorn??!
I looked more closely and yep, it was for sure a unicorn and I wondered if it could truly be Canada’s Coat of Arms and motto.

I know… I didn’t learn a whole lot in history obviously 😬🙄

But still, it seemed too magically fantastic to be our representation. Continue reading “Jem Moment: Unicorn Immigration”
