Origami Wrapping

Saturday was Carole's birthday and I stopped by in the morning for coffee and cake with all the WaterMonkies. I made a paper flower pot to gift wrap a pound of sun dried, organic, fair trade coffee. Aaron and Lauryn made an insanely delicious chocolate cake with fresh strawberries -- mmm, mmm, good! They also made her Bart and Homer Simpson hooked rugs which were very cool. There were all kinds of original cards for Carole and she made us each special Valentines. Missy brought her fancy canned veggies from her garden, Lauryn knit her a scarf to match the hat she made her a couple years ago... Roger did all the dishes... and this was all before noon! I think Carole had a very Happy Birthday indeed.

Advanced Techniques and Tender Moments

There are a couple special moves on this latest Battle Cats video -- and a lot of prolonged touchie touchie where I was thinking "Are you two gonna kiss?"

If you've got time and inclination to watch until the end, you'll see what a petulant (but lovable) varmint Leo really is. If I knew how to edit video and add sounds I would have recorded, "This is what I want to do to your face!" at 4:39

Peanut Butter Cookies and Brownie Bites

Cynthia, keep your eyes open for a package in the mail. Karen, you'll have to visit Gram to get yours! Erica, did your PB cookies make it back to Maine or were they highway fodder?I like to make brownies in muffin tins or mini-muffin tins... that way they're ALL corner pieces. Yum!
