Let Them Eat Cake!

Look what I made! Oh! The wonderful pleasure of chocolate. Devil’s food cake. I had planned to make a spice cake, but it was not to be.



This cake is so lovely and moist. Even my daughter, who won’t eat chocolate, is desperate to try it. I had one slice yesterday and it was every bit as good as I had hoped.

>My Favorite things…

>I’m a happy person. I’d say happy go lucky, but I’ve got no luck. I’m also a morning person. This morning I was unpacking boxes and making up silly songs in my head and I began to think about all the things that make me so happy. Here they are:

  • Making people laugh, mostly children.
  • Clean sheets.
  • A bra that fits well.
  • Purring cats.
  • Swing sets.
  • Books.
  • Baking
  • Tight fitting socks.
  • Working.
  • My best friend Meg.
  • My favorite tea, Ahmad of London’s Earl Gray.
  • Playing video games in my boxer’s and a tank top.
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Walking on the beach.
  • Margarita’s and a Chimichanga at Vallarta’s.
  • Hammocks.
  • Back and foot rubs.
  • Clean Floors.
  • Dancing.
  • Collard greens or any other food made by my Grandmother’s.
  • Music
  • When someone other than me washes my hair.
  • Chocolate in many forms.
  • Science Fictions TV Shows and movies.

I suppose I could go on, but these are the things that make me the most happy.

I have always felt that we have to find ways to make ourselves happy. There are a lot of bad things that happen and a lot of good things. In order to be happy, I think we need to celebrate the little things so we can handle the bad things. Life is about balance.
