Sunday morning, rain is falling… That’s how it started, a slow, steady rain matching our downhearted moods and providing comfort for those of us mourning the ridiculous Razorback loss. The rain turned to drizzle and ended rather quickly, much like the game. The skies remained gray, the day cool. What’s more idyllic than a rainy, unhurried Sunday? We lazed around the house (is lazed a word?), had a late lunch with family, napped and read and read and napped. We watched the end of the Cowboy game, which proved to be the unhappiest 2 and 0 season start ever. A bad football weekend calls for chocolate. To be specific, brownies. To be more specific, Lazy Sunday Brownie Sundaes.
But first, can we talk more about the weather? One thing I love about our house is the attic fan. With Sunday temperatures never climbing out of the 60s, we opened the doors and enjoyed the wonderful breeze circulating through the house.
I wore a sweater all day ❣
In the afternoon, I snapped a few pictures in the garden, thinking the still-blooming flowers will soon be gone. Last daylily of the year? Could be.
And this monarch has been hanging out in the milkweed. I finally got a good picture.
Now about the lazy Sunday brownie sundaes…
I made Betty Crocker fudge brownies straight from a box because, to be honest, her brownies are pretty perfect. Betty’s good at providing a no fuss, football-mourning, chocolate fix. Topped with Yarnell’s homemade vanilla and a drizzle of butterscotch topping, it’s what a call a lazy sundae Sunday.
Days like these, perfect.

P.S. I discovered Yarnell’s recently (we still have no Blue Bell in these parts). Yarnell’s is made in Arkansas! Bonus.
