The other day when I was standing at the mailbox, I noticed my weeping willow tree. I bought it when we moved to this house 6 years ago. It’s not that the yard lacked trees; I just always wanted to have a weeping willow. I liked that it seemed to show emotions.
I saw that the branches were hanging way over into the sidewalk area and realized that the neighbors who enjoyed a nightly walk would have to duck and cover when passing by our house. So being the responsible neighbor I’d like people to think I am, I took to trimming.
I trimmed a little here and a little there then I stood back to admire my cosmetology skills.
Sure it was a little uneven – a little too long on one side, but I could live with it.
Then I had a moment of de ja vu. I had seen this before…somewhere. It was just so familiar.
Then I remembered.
I must have inherited my trimming skills. Thanks Mom!
Chocolate Frosting: 1/2 stick of butter, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 3/4 box of confectioner’s sugar, 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in cocoa. Turn down heat and stir in vanilla, sugar and whipping cream. Put on top of cooled brownie cake. Vanilla ice cream on the side makes it even better.
