welcome october | weekend wrap up

October 10, 2011 § 1 Comment

Oh heavens, cool weather! Who would have ever thought it would once again not only rain but that the highs would be in the eighties?! On Sunday we woke up to the sound of rain and it was fantastic. More highlights…

What I would say a pretty successful attempt at duplicating the morning glory muffins from the coffee shop where I work. I substituted a bit of the molasses and banana for pumpkin puree. They’re filled with raisins, pecans and shredded carrots. Would have included apples had I felt like peeling and chopping them. But I didn’t. Perfect for Columbus Day morning, where I plan to soonhereafter return to bed to read. {May be reading Moby Dick for school but am telling myself that still counts as vacay.}

There is a wrinkly edge on my travel map and with most things I attemp it took about two hours longer than I expected {which is why I don’t attempt much} But a container of rubber cement, super glue, spray adhesive and mini nails later, it’s at least on the wall…

Green is where we’ve been together. Blue is where Taylor’s been and Yellow is where I have been. Blue+Yellow=Green

…get it. Clever, I know.For Meggie’s birthday party on Saturday I successfully baked and constructed my first real cake. Only to discover it was less than portable. It had a wild ride through the streets of Austin before Meg and I jostled it back together and did some icing repair. It was quite a humorous ride {after I got over my frustration with the negation of all the time spent carefully icing} as Tay gave the play by play of all the sliding action.We did not have to fork the cake out of the cake dome and the party was made complete by some fantastic friends and an A&M victory.

Back to bed with the window open to read more of Ishmael’s fated sojourn through the dark waters of Ahab’s vengeance.

    Erin, I LOVE morning glory muffins! I also loved your tale of the woes of transporting your first cake, all with Tay’s “play by play”! ;-) Sorry to laugh at your misery, though. ;-(
