One Bite at a Time

This is the lemon cupcake recipe I used and this is the hibiscus frosting. I can vouch that both recipes are super delicious. The frosting came together beautifully. It’s not runny at all, but it’s not super stiff. You couldn’t pipe it into shapes but I prefer it the way it is- just plopped on the cupcakes with a tablespoon. 

I made 24 and was going to send them all into work with Ryan, but I am rethinking that now…

I was feeling adventurous! Lemon cupcakes with hibiscus tea buttercream. They are ridiculously good.

But to be fair, it’s the Snake Juice episode and that is unquestionably the best episode of them all.

Re-watching season three of Parks and Rec reminds me how good it used to be.

Did I mention that around midnight last night I became convinced that someone was hiding in our attic and was going to climb out of our bedroom closet and attack me? So I set up a booby-trap in front of the door by stacking several glass candles on top of each other, the idea being that they would topple over and make a loud crashing sound if anyone opened the door. I also slept with a knife, a large hickory stick, a heavy flashlight, and my husband’s gun nearby.

I have been home alone too long.

This is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen

I was listening to a story on NPR yesterday and the guy said to take 20-30 minutes in the morning to just journal about your thoughts and your dreams before you turn on your phone or your computer or the radio or anything. Before the world of “other peoples’ opinions” starts creeping in.

I think I’m gonna start doing that.
