Another Thursday Mini-Post

Thursday Update:
First of all, I am happy to say that I got Jimmy's Alabama Crimson (Velvet) Tide cupcakes off in the mail, along with a printout of the post. I hope it makes him smile :)Didn't the little chocolate Alabama "A" turn out nice? Too bad it will probably be a melted mess by the time it makes it there ;) Oh, and I tweaked the recipe again, and I think it turned out rather scrumptious. I'll make sure I can replicate the result before posting the recipe (I'm thinking early June, after the icing series).

And secondly... (Drum roll, please)... I am thrilled to announce that a short story I recently submitted will be published in True Love Magazine! I'll keep you posted as to when it will hit newsstands :)

  12. Thanks, Marquita! Right now we don't HAVE a dock, since we have taken all the deck boards off. When we get them replaced, I'll drop you a note!

  13. PS - It seemed like a good idea at the time...
    Why is it projects always multiply and take about 5 times longer than you expect?? LOL!
