Blueberry Cake and a Riddle


Today we finally have snow! The kids are whooping it up outdoors, and I'm staying inside, about to enjoy a piece of freshly baked blueberry cake before it gets devoured by the 4 aforementioned kids. (say that 10x fast!) We've made this oodles of times. It was graciously supplied by Chocolate and Zucchini. The only two things I did to change it was convert the measurements from metric into US and tweak the amount of brown sugar. We added a bit more than called for. Delicious.

Now about the riddle...
What is shrunken, black and hairy?

Anya holding a 'gorilla' sweater. This is the result of one of my many attempts at machine felting. It began its journey as a thrifted mohair and nylon sweater (started out x-large) and took a ride in the washing machine twice! Doesn't it look like a small black gorilla? Not sure what to make with it, but for now it will go into my collection of felted sweaters that will someday become purses, blankets, coasters... My children think I'm a little nuts and my husband just smiles, but it IS an interesting way to see science at work.

also good to put in a costume pile for a party or if you celebrate halloween. for a gorilla, King Kong, or a really hairy Tarzan!!! :-)or Fred Flinstone- if you add a one-shouldered outfit and a bat-like thing it could work as a cave man... puts a whole new meaning to "hairy ape"... thanks for sharing.
