Cupcake Celebrations


We celebrated my husband's birthday this week and so there were cupcakes.  I splurged and bought them from a bakery.  I love the made from scratch clean taste - this is the same bakery that did the wedding cake.  YUM.


I've upped my exercise routine this week and I'm faced with how limited I am with my RA and yet I'm kind of excited with all I can do.  I can feel my muscles, kind of achy in a good way I guess.
Of course, I'm still doing my daily walks and my daily yoga.


I've been reading slowly the plant based diet book and writing notes and learning.  My grandfather was a big believer in "never stop learning" and you can learn anything from a book!  He would have loved the internet.  All that information.


My sweater is on the second sleeve, yay!  I try to give this sweater some time during the day, at least one hour if not two hours.  I daydream of a sweater that will fit perfectly :)


Yesterday while catching up on blog reading I came across

-Elaine's four season shawl, so beautiful!
-Zeta's post about being gifted a lovely pattern by Alina.  Oh how this big big world gets smaller when knitters are involved.
-I know I've said it before but I'll say it again.  Please give Amanda's videocast a watch!
-I'm really enjoying the information in:  The plant powered diet

I hope you have a lovely weekend, see you Sunday!

  1. Those cupcakes look delicious! I know I couldn't control myself if I brought these home... Have a great weekend! We're supposed to be in the 60's again and I am looking forward to spending lots of time outdoors.

  2. Sounds like a great week- the cup cakes looks delish, happy birthday to your husband. Good for you doing yoga everyday- I try but with kids and horses life gets busy. I am wondering about your sweater is the the white pine? Very pretty blue color you chose for it. Love the Easter decor- Easter is my favorite time of year :)

  3. Happy birthday to your husband! Such pretty cupcakes and now I want to bake a batch ;)
    I am so sore from all the exercising we have been doing this week, but I am proud that we are doing it and I am so thankful you are my buddy, it keeps me motivated.
    My Daddy always told me to never stop learning either, it's something I now say to my kids.
    I hope you have a fabulous weekend my friend.

  6. I'm finally getting back to blog reading after being away for a couple weeks. You are fortunate to have such a nice bakery nearby. I hope your husband had a wonderful birthday. I always find the second sleeve is a bit hard to get through. The thought of a perfectly fitting sweater should inspire you to keep going! What yoga program are you using? Maybe you've mentioned it before and I've forgotten. Sadly, I seem to be doing that a lot lately. And thanks for the links!

  21. Mmmmm, cupcakes! I bet your husband's birthday was lovely. I loved all of the pictures in this post, especially the one of you sweater with the toes of your hand-knit socks peaking out at the bottom. : ) This is the time of year that my body craves greens and movement. I'll have to check-out that book.
