Dinner and a Cake :)

On Saturday we had some friends over for dinner. It was a really nice evening, except that one of my candles that I have up on one of the walls going up stairs leaked over and made a pile of wax onto the carpet. Does anyone have any suggestion on how to get that out? Other then that it was a great success. I made a chocolate cake, same one that Himilce had made when we made dinner for our Pastor and his family. I had melted some left over christmas chocolate over a pan of boiling water added a little cream and then poured it over the finished cake. It was so nice and moist :) The picture is a little dark, but I think you get the picture.

It looks like Benjamin may be leaving next week. I can't believe it has come. They said it wasn't very likely he would leave before June, but now he has an evaluation tomorrow. We will find out the rest of the details then. Its hard when I wake up in the morning realizing he isn't going to  be there. I am determined to busy myself and make myself useful :) I should be finding out about the classes I will be taking sometime this week. So we shall be busy getting everything ready for Benjamin's departure. I need to learn a lot of the things that Benjamin is responsible for around the house. Like the BILLS! Ah! :P 

I will update as soon as we know the details about our futures!

Oh, Elizabeth, that's so hard, I'm sure, to think of him leaving so much sooner than expected. Have you heard anything for sure yet?

My kind of cake, Chocolate! I wish to have a taste. hmm, that makes me want to go down and have some chocolate ice cream instead. :)

"the bills" you and Marie are so funny. I'd go crazy if I didn't know where our money was going. Not that I really "know" where it's going now... it just seems to disappear! That cake looks really good. Makes me wish I still had that box we made!
