Rainy Day and Brownies...

Cloudy, misty skies...

Youngest son with a cold trying to get warm....3 blankets and a fire no less...

Reading (and swooning) for me in between tylenol administrations...

A break from the rain.  I wonder why she so enjoys laying on the wet bricks???  Goofy dog.

Baking to pass the time and to try a frosting recipe that has been in my files for about 17 years...

It is awesome.  Here is the recipe (I halved it and spread it on a small batch of brownies):

Mocha Buttercream Frosting:
1 stick of butter
1 box confectioners sugar
2T baking cocoa
1t. vanilla
extremely strong coffee as a liquid

Mix butter and vanilla and add sugar, cocoa and some of the coffee and blend.  Adjust as needed.  YUM. 

Hope today is a lovely one, rain or shine!
