I love blogland! I have met so many wonderful, sincere people within the connections of blogland. I find and follow blogs that are inspirational to me. People that will pray for you, laugh with you, and shed a tear with you. People that share treasures, recipes, and decorating ideas. Ideas that I would not have thought of in 199 years!! I also stay caught up on the lives of many a military family that have crossed our path throughout the years. I know, I know it is all computer based but this is the generation in which we are living.
One blog that completely inspires me is my friend Dena in Iowa. Dena uses her talents to draw and produce inspirational cards. Not only are her drawings adorable but she posts many inspirational verses and quotes. Recently, she posted a recipe that I knew I had to try because it had very little ingredients and sounded delicious. You can about it here.
We had a function(do you see the word fun??) to attend last night! Actually, we did have a wonderful time but sometimes military functions are not necessarily fun! We were to bring an appetizer or a desert. I opted for the desert. So Dena here is your mom's recipe made with a box of chocolate cake mix, 1/2 bag of chocolate chips and walnuts added for a healthy heart. . . .
To all my friends that I have met over the past 2 1/2 months, thank you for your kind comments and for providing such inspirational blogs that I thoroughly enjoy reading.
I'm off to an auction on this sunny Arizona Saturday morning. Hopefully, I will win a lovely 3 stack barrister bookcase with a clawfoot base. I really, really, really want it. This is only the second one that I have seen with clawfeet. I'll let ya'll know the outcome later on this weekend.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
P.S. The hammered aluminum tray that the cake bars are resting on is a new find. I purchased it along with 5 other trays in a box last weekend at an auction for $1.00!!
