I guess I'm working with a theme here...thinking of things that make me happy, maybe will make me happy.
It isn't that I'm unhappy, but things have been so stressful and hard to get through that I'm having a hard time remaining steadfast and positive. I have wanted to give up in exasperation so many times recently, and that's just not like me.
So, I've determined that I will make myself happy! The Happy Feet socks have helped go a long way into kicking my rear in that direction. But they will be finished soon, and I'll need something else to make me happy.
So, I think of things that I enjoy doing and one of those things is winding yarn hanks into cakes. Yesterday I showed you a picture of my beautiful bright sock yarn in its "hank" state...today I'll show you the picture of it wound into a "cake."
Isn't is pretty? It's just sitting there waiting for me to pull that center yarn out and start working...which I did about 2 seconds after I took this picture. In fact, I may have already pulled out the first length of yarn before I took this picture...that's why the center yarn is draping over the back...but I don't remember exactly.
Tonight, my work-friend has brought me some yarn of hers to wind into cakes. I told her I enjoy doing that. I think people think I'm a little wonky (but I know that to be true...so I don't care if they think it or not!)...so that will make me happy.
I like other kinds of cake. Chocolate, cheese, coconut. Cakes in general are happy things. Maybe I should make a particularly decadent chocolate cake this weekend. It has coffee and kahlua and creme de cacao in it so by the time you've eaten a slice you feel very satisfied and happy--life is grand. It's a thick and rich and delicious cake (and worth about 1/3 of my daily WW points, but that's cool...it's worth it) and makes a wonderful breakfast to boot. I think I've talked myself into that cake.
Cake is definitely one of those things that makes me happy...
