“I wish you a tolerable Thursday. That’s all any of us can hope for.” -April Winchell
What is it about Thursdays that make me so impatient? It’s like that “almost there” day. You are so close to the weekend you can taste it. Thursday is like my full moon. I just feel a tad bit more ornery. On this Thursday, there are some things I just have to tell you. I know I should wait, space it out like a good newbie blogger…but it’s a Thursday, I’m impatient and I simply can’t wait to tell you. I hope the Blog gods forgive me.
1. If I believed in having bumper stickers on my car, one of them would read, “My friends are more brilliant than your friends.” I know, that’s rude, but I am just so thankful for my amazing friends today, one in particular. I’m sure you would have the same bumper sticker on your car about your friends and I couldn’t blame you in the least. We can all brag about our friends. This is one of my very best friends and we only see each other maybe once a month, which is a crime really, but I’d be nervous for the world if we saw each other more often. I adore her soul. She also happens to be a fantastic writer. Not a “nice” writer but fantastic, like you don’t want to miss anything she writes writer. She just started a new blog Giving Up Lent: 40 Things I’d forgo if I had a Chuck Norris Backbone. It’s brilliant. Don’t worry, you’re only two days behind.
2. I’ve updated this past (food)lovers post about cookies with the recipe for The Ricotta Cookies That Started it All. My friend just emailed the recipe to me and I’m fighting the urge to drop everything and go home and make them now. Yeah, they’re that good people. I’ve been rationing what’s left of the Lemon Ricotta Cookies I squirreled away last weekend because I just don’t want the goodness to end. I think I am officially addicted to ricotta cookies. I need my fix.
3. I am going to a cake decorating class this Saturday. Nerdy? Yes. Ecstatic? For sure! It’s a Fondant I class at SweetWise Bakery here in town. I’ve wanted to go to one for so long but they are normally so expensive. Enter Groupon. If you aren’t sign up, do it now for the city you are in. Man, I am impatient today. I’m sorry. You’ll be glad you did though. You can get 50% discounts on classes, restaurants, spas, all sorts of good things. I’m doubly excited because I have a great idea for the boys birthday cake this year and I need the expert help to pull this one off 😉 Last year I attempted the Rubik’s cube cake so this year has to be bigger and better. Yeah, we’re takin’ it to the next level. I’m up for the challenge.
