it's a rainy, dreary, cold sunday
and for a change, the hubs & i have no where
to go & nothing particular to do
i decide to bake a cake
not just any cake, a yummy chocolate bundt cake
dripping with chocolate glaze
do some knitting on a pair of socks that
i started a few days ago using some beautiful hand dyed yarn
the hubs is watching the race...
thought the hubs & i
one of my favorite sayings is
"we make plans & God laughs"
this particular saying sooooooooooooooooo describes my entire day
this is said cake
yep, this is it....this is what it looked like after turning it
out of the bundt cake pan on to the cake plate and
picking off the crust...yep, a crust
while this mess of a cake was baking
and i was happily knitting
(which turned into unknitting also know as frogging)
i noticed the lack of a sweet scent of
goodness coming from the oven
so i stopped unknitting
(the sock.....now a puddle of curly yarn)
and went to check the cake
hmmmm, the timer is on
but no heat
we know at one time there was heat
as the cake was baked a little
(i'm guessing this is when the crust formed)
i turned the heat on and finished baking until the
knife came out clean
i remained optomistic til the end
the cake had about a 1/2 " crust
pies have crust...cakes....not so much
i picked the crust off and put the top on the cake plate
i don't know....i think this makes all the difference in the world don't you?
i said to the hubs, "i should take pictures & blog it"
to which he replied
"you should, not every moment is perfect"
and he's right
ugly as it is, it is very tasty
the socks, well the socks have returned to their previous life
a pretty ball of yarn
and the preview page doesn't work on blogger..
of course it doesn't
on searching ravelry, knitty, etc looking for a new pattern
i came across this saying and thought it fit my day perfectly!
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
I will try again tomorrow"
and i will
