Last week Marlon and I made chocolate chip cookies. They were pretty good and he wanted to make more. We decided to make them using cacao butter instead of normal butter. Yesterday Louise was telling us of cookies she makes using melted chocolate as well.
This morning we started getting ingredients together and the cookies finally made it into the oven at 930 tonight. During the day when I was ready, Marlon wasn't, and vice versa. We made chocolate and mixed that into the cookie batter. Not bad!
Mojo just happened to be there wondering if there might be something good for him to eat.
This morning we heard of a car accident that killed a 12-year-old boy, a friend of one of Marlon's friends. The mom was driving with her 3 kids. The 10-year-old girl is barely alive and the 8-year-old girl is hurt but will be ok. So shocking, so painful to imagine. Just can't imagine. How does one cope with that? Apparently, the car that caused the accident was driven by a 17-year-old that possibly ran a stop sign. So many emotions stirred up by this. Just wow!
Thoughts of this and the pain and loss were always close to the surface as I went through the day. Ouch!
