it’s going to be a good one

Posted on Posted in book reviews/events, food and garden, projects

whatever did david do before he had post-it notes?
(although, looking at the date of its invention, he probably never knew a life before them. and i have fun collecting them over our years together . . .)

each year since we met, he has baked a homemade cake for my birthday—my favorite part of every year’s celebration (and i do celebrate; i love my birthday!).

this time, he made a carrot cake with orange and lemon zest from my friend kim’s orchard—the last of the fruit we brought home form california, yum. we’ll cut into that tonight . . .

it’s also my blogiversary, so the sentiment in that note goes out to you from me, too; thanks so much for four years of fun and chatter about knitting and so much more!

now, i have a date with a yoga tape and after that, to my knitting chair for the rest of the day to bond with my little shawl project.

  1. Happy, happy, Miss Anne! Thank you so much for sharing all of your creativity with us. I’ve enjoyed your designs so very much and look forward to many, many more. What a wonderful husband to bake a cake for you every year! And, just to let you know, carrot cake is my absolute favorite and it does travel well surrounded by dry ice in an overnight USPS box. I’ll pay postage!!! 🙂 Bless you always!!

  2. Late to the party wishing you a very Happy Birthday Anee! And a Happy Blogiversary too! What a yummy cake! David is a keeper- lucky you to have a cake made each year. Hope your day was filled with all things wonderful. 🙂

    The cake looks gorgeous and very, very tempting… I’m not sure I could have left it alone for a whole day.

    It’s so funny — you had just mentioned you were going to go to your knitting chair, and I saw the last picture and thought — hmm, where is the chair? A nice room with a lot of color, but those glasses are HUUUUGE! (Then I realized it is a desktop or tabletop!)

  10. Wow,a guy who not only actively encourages and obviously loves your knitting etc. but who can also bake delicious cakes!!Where can I get one?!
    Seriously though, you are so lucky!! The cake looks scrummy and I hope you had a very happy birthday with many fab prezies and lotsmore cake too!
