I made what I thought was incredibly witty joke about Hurricane Ophelia headed for the Moors yesterday morning. I laughed. Hubs laughed. Then I realized I had made a critical error in my Shakespeare. Desdemona not Ophelia. Derp. Thankfully, I caught myself before I posted the wit online. In my defense, I had only had one cup of coffee. One should not attempt Shakespearean jokes when one is caffeine deficient. (In his defense, Hubs was also low on coffee and also he laughs at most of my jokes - even when he isn't listening.)
Laughter really does make a marriage better. Even when stuff gets bad, we can usually find something to laugh about. (Good laughter - not at each other's expense. Ever.) Thirteen and a half years and going strong.
I saw a pair of birds while I was out at the lake on Tuesday. They flew over me making an unholy racket similar to that of a Great Blue Heron. Gull shaped silhouette with gull coloring against the gray sky, but about the size of an Osprey (larger than typical gull wingspan). Still not sure what the hell they were. :shrug:
I read a book earlier this year that I really loved, but I didn't have it in the budget to buy the sequel. Joy of joys, the author put book two as free yesterday. Huzzah! And I feel really bad about not paying for it, so I'll be chatting it up after I read it. Fingers crossed it's as good as the first book.
If you've ever tried my cake cookie recipe, try this... Make the recipe according to directions (box cake mix, 2 eggs, 1.2 cup veg oil, whatever additions you like). Stir it all together and then instead of making drop cookies, smush it all into the bottom of a greased 8x10" pan. Bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through in the center. Cut into bars. I used chocolate cake and peanut butter chips. OMG, so good served warm with ice cream.
Okay, that's it for me. What have you got?
