A Wet Weekend

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends  - First off let me welcome my new followers - I may not say it often enough, but I do appreciate your kindness in following this little old Blog of mine.  I will occasionally look to see the number of hits I get - and I must say it tickles me to no end - and brightens up my bleak mornings!!  so...  a big Thanks to you all!

This weekend found the City by the Bay swathed in rain and wind and just not nice weather....  so, what could we do??  We got up earlish Saturday Morning - went to breakfast at "Good Food" it's a small hole in the wall type of dinner/cafe close to home over on Mission Street.   After breakfast it was on to the store for our weekly Grocery shopping then home again.  We stayed in the rest of the day... no Estate Sales, Consignment Shops, Goodwill....  too much rain!!  Watching movies and reading was how I spent my Saturday...

Then Sunday it was early Mass - then a stop a Lowes for a replacement handle for the toilet - a quick stop to pick up some take out breakfast - then home again.  Although the weather was a bit better - not much rain - we again stayed in.  I did get together this stuff....

...and turned it into a delicious "Chocolate Kahlua Cake" - I got the recipe from sweet Monica's Blog "Lick the Bowl Good" - you should check it out for some great recipes and peep at that darling Hayden of hers!!!  The only changes I made were to bake the cake in a tube pan and double up on the icing....  It is super moist and has a great flavour....

The real highlight of the weekend!!!

I did stitch a bit on Shores, and a bit on ATS, but really not enough to mention.

There you go sports fans - two lazy, stay at home days - and they were so very nice.  Thanks again for stopping by, following and just being the great folks you are!!!  Do stop again!

Take care,


  1. Sounds like a nice, comfy, relaxing weekend : )

  2. Edgar: We love to follow you we love your beautiful stitching and of course your recipes, I am always glad to hear about outings to restaurents and of course bargin shopping.
    I am the biggest thrift shopper in the family I love it i should start posting my finds.

  3. ooo glad the rain didn't stop you from making the cake yummm thanks ... and I love to pop in and see what you've been up too .... love mouse from a very sunny mouse house today ....

  4. Sounds like a wonderful weekend to me... sometimes it's nice to just hang out at home. Will have to add your newest recipe to list... sounds delish!!

  5. Sounds like a great weekend. We had a wet week but did I ever get the stitching done. Going to try the cake. It sounds and looks delicious. Have a great week.

  6. Sometimes it's nice just to snuggle inside and watch the rain. That kahlua cake looks wonderful!!

  7. Edgar, that cake looks yummy! I love that you make a dessert every week. I'm constantly fighting the healthier eating/losing a little weight battle, but to me dessert is one of life's little pleasures I can't entirely give up! :)

  8. I've got to stop looking at your blog Edgar! The food you post looks so good and I gave up anything with added sugar in it for Lent! Darn it! But in a couple weeks I just may have to try that cake.

    Sometimes a weekend snuggled up inside with movies, stitching and cake can be a very good thing!!

  9. Sounds like a great weekend to me. I love lazy stay at home days.

  10. Sounds like a nice weekend despite the rain, Edgar. Glad you had a good one!!
