Simple cake + kitten bed!

20 Nov

Haven’t been keeping up with you blog.. lacking in motivation at this point in life.

I made a really simple cake using a recipe called Edna Lewis’s Busy-Day Cake. I found it on Orangette’s site and it’s quite delicious.

Very easy to make and so satisfying. Just make sure the butter, eggs, and milk are room temperature. This recipe can be made without an electric mixer.

I got kittens! They’re about 2 months old – we don’t know for sure because they’re strays we found in an abandoned garage in our community driveway. We kinda call the cats all different names.. their official names are Isaella (gray female) and Ringo (black male).. official meaning vet’s office. But we also call Isabella – Bella, Milky, and a Chinese name meaning Lucky. Ringo is also known as Blacky, Edward, and a Chinese name meaning Happy.

I could not find the bed on sale at CVS because they never stock anything.. horrible customer service. So I made one using this lovely tutorial by lorie marie. As you can see mine is a rectangle. Only problem is that the kittens do NOT sleep in it at night. I guess it’s too cold in that area.. =( They hid behind the refrigerator!! Eww.. it’s so dirty back there.. and we can’t reach them to get them out. Once we blocked off access to the fridge, they found a new place to sleep. Under the couch. I think it’s because there’s a warm spot on the floor under the couch. Oh well, at least they nap in the bed during the day. =^_^=

Oh and my betta fish (Twitchy) passed this morning. RIP Twitchy. I had just moved my three neon tetras into the 30 gallon tank along with two new neons the day before. I cleaned out Twitchy’s 10 gallon and now there are two rosy red minnows in there. They’re so pretty.. to me at least.
