Too Much Chocolate Cake

Today was Brad’s birthday and we stopped at the bakery yesterday and he picked out a cake. No, not the one in the photo…but it’s awfully close! I didn’t think to get a pic before we started eating the candy off the top of it or slicing into it. In any case, it was a lovely cake, three layers of chocolate with chocolate buttercream frosting and lots of tasty candy toppings. After eating all either one of us needed we opted to ‘share’ the slightly more than half of the cake that was left and Brad dropped it off at the farm this afternoon.

He got to visit with Audrey and the kids and fluff all three dogs. Two year old Gabriel is learning lots of new words and showed his Grandad what he’s learned. He ended up with patting one of the dogs on the butt and announcing “Good dog!”. That’s our boy!

I stayed in today. The weather dipped down into the 30’s last night and will again tonight with lows in the 40’s tomorrow like we had today. I’m not sure if we will get any rain to speak of, maybe later tonight. There was a light shower at 7 am when I got up but all it’s done the rest of the day is drizzle a bit and stay cloudy.

I’m getting close to the next color in the cowl, a semi-solid in another Fishknit’s yarn. I’ve been watching Law & Order reruns while knitting this afternoon and enjoying a quiet day at home.

The headache is completely gone and I’ve purposely avoided any strenuous work around the house today so as not to trigger another one. I’ll do some laundry tomorrow and leave anything else for Monday. I’ve had my shower early, the kitchen is clean. There is nothing else to do but relax before bedtime. Hope your first Friday of Lent was a good one. God bless, ya’ll.

RED Friday! Remember Everyone Deployed Until They Come Home!

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
