Lazy Sundays

This Sunday was a great day for relaxing about the house. Kiddo was up early, as usual, to watch his morning cartoons and hubby and I cuddled together all warm and cozy until about 8:00 (no extra sleeping in for me this weekend).

After breakfast, I hunkered down to do some writing (most of it in the area of plotting, so the actual wordcount was only about 1500 words), and then we went out to the mall for a while to run some errands. I did some more writing when we got home while hubby and kiddo played Ben 10 on the Wii. Click here if you're at all interested in knowing what Ben 10 is (you don't want to be less informed than a six year old, do you?)

Just before dinner, I got it into my head that I needed to make brownies. Of course, I put my question to the Twitterverse and received a couple of great recipes, but the best one by far was from writer pal Viv Arend. Since my first attempt flopped, I tried her recipe afterward, and the brownies were TO DIE FOR! Thanks Viv!

Despite the fact that I worked on my new WIP for the better part of the day and only got about 2000 words, I'm very excited about this little short story. I think it's totally rockin' and can't wait to share it!

I have a great brownie recipe - these are gluten-free, but the original recipe wasn't gluten-free. To make "regular" brownies, simply use all-purpose wheat flour and skip the xanthan gum.

Oooh, Chris. Those look really good. I'll try them too!

Hope you have a great week!
