Sunday :)

What a lazy Sunday afternoon we're having! Mark, Luna, Mrs. Norris, and I all took naps - and the animals are still sleeping now :) I've never napped so much in my life, I don't think... I guess that's what having a busy busy puppy will do to you.

Mark is catching up on some reading, since he was sort of out of commission for a while. His mouth is healing well, and all looks good. He never hurt very badly, but is still taking his good pain meds every now and then, so I'm sure that's helping. I'm just glad the worst stuff is over with - there are more appointments that he has to go to, but all the extremely major stuff is over with.

I'm trying really hard to keep my mind off of the cake that's sitting on the table... I know this more belongs on the food blog, but I'm just so proud of myself. Last night, we were craving something baked, and I had a box of cake mix in the cabinet that will expire next month, so it needed to be used anyway. (Normally I don't use cake mix, but I bought it back a while ago when they were on sale, and never did use it.) Anyway, it was just a normal yellow cake, and I wanted to make chocolate buttercream. I couldn't ever find a recipe I liked much, and so I decided I would just make one up myself.

I did, and it's FANTASTIC. Sooo yummy. I was just SO pleased with myself... it's silly, but it made me happy :)

I mean, really, YUM.

Kelly spent the night with us last night, and this morning we went to Oak Mtn. State Park where her car was left with the keys locked inside :) We called a locksmith, and took cute pictures while we waited. I'll post them if I can ever get my film developed...

Hope everyone has a nice, peaceful, restful remainder of your weekend!

    Good job on that buttercream! I wouldn't know where to start.
