This morning was a bit of a mad rush, but the house is quiet this afternoon. It's raining outdoors, and it's a little bit chilly inside. Mom and Dad are watching television and drinking hot cocoa and tea in their bedroom. Sam is reading and baking brownies. I'm chopping up old magazines and wasting time on the internet, and Ben is reading to Jason.
When the brownies come out of the oven, I'm going to top them with melted marshmallows and a marvelous peanut butter/chocolate concoction (at Sam's request). Until then, I have my own cup of cocoa to drink. I've dug my Agatha Christie book out of a cardboard box (three books in one) so I'm headed back upstairs to read about M. Poirot Miss Marple. Perhaps I will chop up more magazines when inspiration strikes ;)
