Cake Day

It’s a  cake day” definitely does NOT have the same meaning for me as it does for most people.  “Cake day” for me means I am doing a special-events-celebratory-by-request-decorated cake.  Each one of these has the potential for great disaster.  Never more than this one I will be attempting today and tomorrow.  I have researched similiar cakes to this (diaper-cake) design, requested by my beautiful Jovan.  I have found 57 photos.  3 are cute.  ONLY THREE!  The rest are hilarious disasters.  {shaking my head} We shall see…But for Jovanie (who once talked me into a Barbie cake!!??…see below)?  Anything!

But o, what a glorious morning.

I am playing my Three Dog Night’s Greatest Hits on the turntable – yes!  NOT an MP3, an actual old-fashioned LP record – VINYL, people!  Good times!  The slight scratchiness adds to the experience.

Did Paul Williams (who had sort of a froggy-puppet look) write good lyrics or what?

Just an old-fashioned love song playin’ on the radio
And wrapped around the music is the sound
Of someone promising they’ll never go
You swear you’ve heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on
No need in bringin’ `em back,
`Cause they’re never really gone
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I’m sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin’ down in 3-part harmony
To weave our dreams upon and listen to each evening
When the lights are low
To underscore our love affair
With tenderness and feeling that we’ve come to know
You swear you’ve heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on and
No need in bringin’ `em back,
`Cause they’re never really gone

It is a brilliantly sunny day and just as I was about to toss some onions from the produce drawer (the last of 2009’s onion bounty from my own garden) because they are starting to sprout, I realized it is not too early to go push them into the garden soil where they will grow for this year!  Happy!  Happy!  Happy!  Almost made me forget I can’t breathe and my throat hurts and (after 2 weeks of this) I have to go to the doctor’s office later.
