On Sunday, I wrote double the number of pages required. I marked the progress on my calendar and put the numbers in for two days. I needed to write through to the end of the scene, and I needed to get it done because the day is crazy.
BBC1 (Big Brother Crisp #1) is here for Cherry’s birthday. She’s nine. I baked her favorite cake and bought cupcakes for school because you can’t bake your own cupcakes to take to school anymore. I wrapped the presents. We’re ready to celebrate first thing in the morning. It’s our tradition to eat birthday cake for breakfast.
I’m posting the cake recipe below. It’s a family thing, passed down from my dad’s mother. The description of the cherries shows how old the recipe is.
