I have some last-minute before-the-storm stuff to do, so I'll make this brief and mostly in pictures. This weekend was good, but I didn't exactly get anything done that I set out to accomplish.
That's not to say I didn't get anything done, however.
Birthday cake trial #1: Pumpkin chocolate with a modified version of this raw chocolate pumpkin frosting (for Ada, the rest of the guests would get regular butter-and-sugar frosting).
Success. But could use tweaking to be lighter and fluffier. The texture reminded me more of a muffin than a cupcake.
* Some party supplies * Furniture rearranging * Toppings. We JUST got a froyo place up in this town * My favorite (original tart with sour gummies) * A photo-shoot of an adorable 5-week-old named Olive *
The winds here are just starting to pick up ever-so slightly. Stephen's school is letting out early, so he'll be home soon. And I'm off to tackle one of the biggest first-world problems I can think of: Batteries for the white noise machine. Here's hoping the power doesn't go out.
If you're in the path of Sandy, stay safe, my friends!
