Corners and Edges

Corners and edges:  my nemeses. 

I had to look up the plural form of nemesis.  Nemeses sounded like the smart word, but I kind of like nemisises, which speaks volumes about my smartness level.

Corners and edges get me every time.  As I cut up all the goodies I made yesterday, I sampled so many corners and edges that I felt as if browned butter was about to flow through my pores and my jeans were about to burst open.  A sign of over indulgence, perhaps?

Corners and edges are the reason the scale won't budge when I'm baking a lot.  I guess it's good that my baking lulls when Craig isn't around.  Perhaps a lull in baking will create a loss on the scale.  I'm not trying to actively lose weight, or anything, but I like my weight to remain under a certain number and let's just say that I'm currently weighing 1.4 pounds over that magic number.  Stupid corners and edges.  And ice cream.  And chips and salsa time.

I should really stay off of the scale.  Ignorance is bliss, after all.

Corners and edges be gone!

It's hard, though.  The corners and edges are my favorite part.

Oh, and if you're looking for something to bake, the three things I baked yesterday are all delicious and worthy of a whirl in your very own oven.

In other news, this girl

is a faker.


Last night she was burning up.  I didn't need a thermometer to tell me she had a fever, so  I gave her a dose of Motrin around 1 am and this morning she woke up fine.  FINE.

Fevers are kind of sneaky, so I won't be surprised if it returns, but it amazes me that she can be burning up one minute and bouncing around and requesting Panera for lunch a few hours later.

We skipped Panera, but we did go to Target for a few things and then I made her tomato soup and grilled cheese for lunch.   Now she wants to play Wii Fit. 

Yep, she's a faker, all right.

Our fiingers crossed that last night's fever was just a fluke.

And now, I have more baking to do.  But, relax, no corners and edges will be involved.  This time I'm making my go-to cookie recipe (double chocloate chunk cookies) for the people in Craig's class.   

It's a known fact that chocolate boosts brain power.

UPDATE:  Caroline is no longer faking it.  Just as I suspected, the sneaky fever came back.  The funny thing is that she doesn't feel nearly as hot as she did last night, but her fever is 102.5.  Thankfully, she's not miserable and doesn't have any other symptoms, but I sure am baffled.  Fevers are annoying because they can be caused by a zillion different things.   Boo.
