Yesterday was quite the productive day for me. I vacuumed. I did laundry. I did a LOT of dishes. I watched Salt. I groomed the pooch, including the dreaded task of clipping her nails.
The cupcakes are red velvet with cream cheese frosting as Alice mentioned that was her favorite. I was torn between a few different designs so that actually helped to decide what to make. According to the book, this was an easy design and it was by the standards of sheer simplicity. Perhaps if I wasn’t using cream cheese frosting they would have been less tedious to decorate since the frosting was anything but firm. I am aware that the leaves are yellow, but green candy seems to be nonexistent in the Capital District.
Anyway, Alice and Josh came over for dinner tonight and even though we all stuffed ourselves beyond reason I think a pleasant evening was had by all. Including Miss Yara who charmed her way into a three person game of fetch wherein she chose which of us would have the honor of tossing her ball. There was much food and good conversation and now I am a tired me.
Off to bed!
