For a family dinner, I made the family recipe for a chocolate cake. I used Seco cocoa, per my son’s tweeking of the recipe. It was delicious! However, I didn’t realize the oven rack was tilted- so the cake baked tilted- somewhat like a Mansard Roof, or perhaps, a Half Mansard Roof.

While in Salem, the E Quilt (E-Taupia or E-Some! or ???) went to live with Ericka. I’m really thankful I got to be a part of this collaboration with 3 women (mother, aunt and niece).

A trip to IKEA led to this purchase of three fabrics, a soap dispenser, and one more folded little purse. Back home, the dispenser fits right in!

We woke up to snow this morning! It felt a little like an alien world, with snow-frosting glopped on the bitter brush and trees. Can’t resist showing the “before” snow pile with the “current” snow pile left today. Oh yeah, so sad to see that pile go (not). We haven’t inspected closely, but it looks like our deck survived!

    Yum on the cake and fun to read of what else you have been up! I have some cool fabric from IKEA I need to use sometime…Yes our weather is so weird – I am tired of “Sprinter” :-)
