  1. Very beautiful lavender that flower! One of my favorite Fall blooming flowers is the aster in that exquisite shade of lavender blue. They are so luminous in certain lights.I take it you’ve had one of the many variations of Red Velvet Cocoa cake?! The recipe I use calls for buttermilk & 1/2 cup butter . . . just yummy!! There really is nothing quite as good as a made-from-scratch cake. 🙂 I only make this cake for special occasions as it calls for 2 oz of red food coloring – but it comes out a vibrant true red!

  2. Happy V-day to you too Neith.And to the rest of the dearhearted ones who gather here.Red velvet cake, my mother used to make it in heart shaped pans, ice it in white frosting with coconut sprinkled on top. What a nice memory you have stirred to the surface.Speaking of here is that dear woman with red tulips in her hand aaaaand homemade brownies!!!!!See ya all later.

  3. tseka!! Interestingly when I was in grade school, we had a couple of old gals who cooked us the most amazing hot lunches. And one of my favorite desserts from those years was red velvet cake. It was many years later that i found that recipe. Now one can go online & find dozens . . .Very, very nice of your mom to bring tulips & brownies. I’m hoping that in about a month there will be red tulips blooming by my front porch. No more mud & dirty snow!! Lots & lots of cleanup work in the yard though. Silly me is looking forward to it! 🙂

  4. Lots & lots of cleanup work in the yard though. Silly me is looking forward to it! :-)Isn’t it wondrous how winter makes all that outdoor work look appealing again. By autumn’s end we are ready to chuck it and move to some easier life, then spring stirs the urge to toil, plant, be part of the process of growth. It is a miracle really.

  5. It is a miracle really.Yes it is! Sorta like having babies – or so I’m told. The wind has come up here finally so we may have started the drying cycle.

  6. Love the Valentine! Happy Late Valentines to you and yours, hope you had a good one…Thanks! I love the old illustrators who did all the cards, posters, books, etc. That’s when a graphic artist had to seriously develop drawing & painting skills. Using the computer has spoiled us . . . When my stepdaughter was going through the graphic arts program at the local university, I was shocked at how poorly the basic skills classes were being taught. It was “bite my tongue” big time!!Yes, it was a good V-Day. That red velvet cake makes a hefty 9″X13″ cake so it takes us a while to eat it all! Yum!!

I must save that for the future.

  8. I am totally mesmerized by that sweater you knitted. I keep coming back to look at it… :-)Magnificent!(The back ‘makes’ it, I think.)

  9. I am totally mesmerized by that sweater you knitted. I keep coming back to look at it… :-)Thank you! When the focus is on knitting one stitch at a time, the finished product takes on a life of it’s own . . . I have that “did i really do that?!” feeling frequently looking at the end result. Spend a lot of time worrying if it’s going to fit OK!
