Let them eat cake.....

..or let me eat cake....

Tomorrow evening we've been invited to the company BBQ - this, I'm sure you know will, be my first...

..company BBQ - not my first ever BBQ - that would be just silly.

Didn't grow up going to too many BBQ's - uber hot in Arizona.

I guess we could've had a BBQ Thanksgiving..

..but again, that would just be silly. Turkey & sunblock..right.

So, I'm making a cake. Actually I'm making 2 - one for us to have here and one to take to the BBQ - you know, so you eat just a teensy smidgen and people marvel at your self-control.


Then, you leave the BBQ, and of course, leave any remaining gift-cake behind..all the while wanting to get home so you can get totally "cake-faced"....




I found this great quote - did I ever mention I love quotes? Well, I do. Usually have one for just about any mood I'm in.


Tonight I'm in a cake mood - and viola! A cake quote:

"A great many thing can be resolved with kindness - even more with laughter - but there are some things that just require cake..."

Hmmm...I concur

Love the quote. I also like your idea for impressing your coworkers with your "self control". We eat cake way too much at work... a party for this, a party for that. We had some GOOD cake and ice cream yesterday for "birthday party of the month" for employees. ha ha We have b.day party of the month for residents too.

You always 'make my day' when I come to visit - you are truly a funny lady and when you write I feel happy I have read your thoughts! Keep up the great posts Colleen - while I go bake a cake, well actually I'm off to make scones for my neighbor - she's 76 today! Next week the cake for dh to celebrate his b'day!!

Happy weekend - just know it will be for you and yours.
Hugs - Mary.
