Day Four

Did you happen to look at the sky tonight around dusk? If you did, then you were able to witness a very heavenly romance; Mars and Venus were close enough in the night sky to almost kiss . . .while the Cheshire Cat smiled a few degrees above them. 

I woke up early this morning to bake scones. They turned out amazing. I don't like buying scones from most bakeries because they are over handled. Usually, the dough is compressed into smooth shapes -- not the spiky blobs they are supposed to be. My scones were airy and crumbly when I broke them open. I probably didn't need to add butterscotch and chocolate chips. They were far sweeter than I intended. Later in the week, I may make some Asiago cheese scones.

Tomorrow, however, I will be making Red Carpet Cupcakes for the Oscars Party I am attending. I am looking forward to the event. My friend throws it every year. It's a potluck; so there will be plenty of food and beverages to consume while we watch. I haven't seen all of the movies nominated; but I still enjoy the suspense when they open the envelope and pause . . .
