Remember the lovely cone of green yarn pictured in Friday’s blog entry? It’s not wool, it’s 100% cashmere! I should have figured that out, given its incredible software, but it took an email from Jun to set me straight. Here’s a close-up:
Hmmmmmm . . . I’ve been having some fun, thinking about what I can use this for!
Lucy and I had fun together on my day off on Friday. Here’s what my hair looked like:
And here’s what Lucy’s hair looked like:
Obviously Lucy has a better beauty regime.
The Best Chocolate Cake in the World
I used a recipe from the “Chocolate and Zucchini” blog — here.
I used Valrhona baking chocolate. I am a firm believer in using the best quality chocolate possible, and I really really like Valrhona baking chocolate. You can mail order it in the U.S. from a number of different places — do a Google search to find a place.
That was Lucy’s daddy’s birthday cake.
Which reminds me: Jenifleur asked in a comment on Friday:
I’m confused and I can’t be the only one. We are familiar with Lucy’s dad, but I think some of us would like to know how he is Lucy’s dad. Don’t mean to disspell the mystery or anything, just curious!
Lucy’s daddy answered that question:
That’s kind of an odd question. She should be able to figure out that I’m simply the male authority figure in Lucy’s life, so she considers me her daddy, particularly since she is adopted and all that, eh?
I mean . . . y’all knew that Lucy was adopted, right?
I did finish the Laura sweater on Friday — see?
And I returned to working on something I put on hold last summer.
Lucy sez . . .
Your tv choices are boring me!
