Sometimes we have lovely, peaceful nights like this at home. The girls are sweet and funny and full of amazement at the world. Husband is contentedly working on his pond project in the backyard. The frogs are croaking in the trees and among the rocks. The house is clean and airy. I hear neighbors' voices rising and falling intermittently because it's the perfect temperature to have the windows open in the house. And I baked a very delicious chocolate cake with chocolate icing today. The cake is moist and the icing is very sweet, but it has lots of toasted pecans stirred into it to temper the sweetness a bit. I'm going to have some soon. A second piece, actually.
I love these times when they happen, and they seem to have been in short supply lately.
