Sweet Indulgence

I just recognized a leap of excitement in my stomach.

A little surge of joy.

A hiccup of pure happiness.

What was I doing?

Emptying the dishwasher in preparation of clearing up the counters in preparation of baking two cakes for tonight's MOPS appreciation night at the church.

I haven't had a reason (besides Randall & Micah who either don't or shouldn't eat a whole cake...) to tackle a major baking project for several months.

Granted, there was that 6 weeks of post-surgery doldrums and a week away, but it feels like forever!

I'm so excited, I must say.

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake and Butter Pecan Cake (not from scratch) with butterscotch icing and toasted pecans here I come!


  1. You did seem a bit crazed with that look in your eye.

    I love how something like that brings you much joy. I'm sorry I don't or can't appreciate it as much as it deserves to be appreciated.

    But if I did I'd be a fat man.

  2. Yum! Baking is my favourite therapy. Off to make oatmeal cookies now.

  3. can I come to MOPs tomorrow? Sounds wonderful!
