Today I baked Red Velvet cupcakes for friend Debby's birthday (really Monday). I used to make a cake from scratch from my mother's recipe and hers were always gorgeous! Mine, however, always turned out flat!! Sooo....these are made from a box mix...good and problem solved!
Debby & I have been friends for almost 40 years since first getting married. Can it really be that long ago?? Gee, we still seem young except conversation over dinner used to be about our children and their activities...now it seems to be about our grandchildren and a few odd aches and pains!
Dinner was to be Debby's favorite...Chinese take-out!!
Then got a last minute phone call for one extra visitor...son Mike who after work drove an hour to get here with Grandpa Joe's hearing aid...again! He's a saint, that's all I have to say! Anyway, it was fun to see him and a bonus for us!!
January is not only Debby's birthday but also both my parents and daughter-in-law's...so it is/was a busy month. Today was 8* in my car going to the grocery store, the radio said -10* windchill and it felt that cold! I told Debby tonight that her birthday is on the coldest day of the year and mine is always on the hottest!! (July 19th..lol!)
