Here I sit, all alone. The kids went to Gym Night at Greater Vancouver Baptist Church this evening, and Wes went out early to get them and buy some gas on the way, while it's cheap (right!). I enjoy a few minutes alone here and there. The quiet is nice, although I have turned on some music. When I'm online, I like to listen to Faith Music Missions. They always have good music, and it's nice to have on in the background while I do other things.
Today was a pretty relaxed day. I had a hard time getting going this morning, but finally got started and got some things accomplished. Laundry is caught up, chocolate cake is waiting in the kitchen for a bedtime snack, a pattern is cut out and waiting, and fall decorations (what few I have) now grace my home. I must say that I'm not a good decorator. My husband and daughter have a better eye for it than I do - maybe I should just get them to do it for me?! Nah . . . Wes will comment and give suggestions, but I don't think he'd actually do any decorating.
The chocolate cake is made from leftover mashed potatoes! I used to make them years ago, but I lost the recipe I had. Then I thought - wait! The internet has everything; I bet there would be a chocolate potato cake on there. Sure enough, there was, so I whipped one up this afternoon. We don't know how it tastes yet, because we didn't have time at supper to try it before the kids left for gym night. If it's good, I'll post the recipe tomorrow, but if not . . . you'll have to do your own search on it! :)
