Brownies and Bars

Malted Chocolate Chip Bars

Each morning when I wake up, the first thing I say to myself is, “Self, what are you going to do to make today memorable?” Because every day is memorable in some way or another, if you stop and think about it.

And some days, I don’t even have to try to be the one that makes it memorable. 

Why just yesterday, in fact, Dyna the Destroyer chewed up another pair of my shoes.


So innocent when she’s sleeping……

So the day was memorable, indeed it was.

Pleasant to have teeth marks in my shoes? Not in the least.

Dang dog….. of course she doesn’t touch J’s shoes…… only mine..……
