Happy Fourth!

4th of July Pictures, Images and Photos

Already 80 degrees at 6 AM. My electric bill is not to be envied.

I hit all my writing goals yesterday, bought more fabric (need to stop now), and made cupcakes. Let me share the recipe:

Mix large brownie mix. Place foil cupcake liners on a baking sheet and fill 2/3 of the way. Top with Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes.


Also, Rachael Ray's Vacation show on the Food Network was set in San Antonio last night. I emailed Trish that I've only been to 4 of the places she mentioned. The dh and I were making a list.

Oh, and I ordered a bunch of stuff from Vista Print with my cover. Woot! Tried ordering a small poster and mug from Cafe Press, but the image resolution wasn't good enough for the poster, so I will wait.

This evening we're going to my parents' place in the country for barbecue, then are heading into Seguin for fireworks. I need to make another batch of cupcakes before then (different recipe. If it's good, I'll share) and get my goals met. Off to work! Have a great 4th!

We've been running our A/C at 80. I haven't received our June bill yet, but man, I'm skeert.

I have to set my thermostat about 5 degrees below the temp I want. I think it's because we have a nearly-flat roof. I'm hoping when we get our new roof, we can get more of a pitch and make it more energy efficient.

Also, if I could get the guys to remember to close the door to the garage, that would be GREAT.
