Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.

My husband celebrated his birthday this weekend and being the generous person that I am, I made him HIS favorite cake but it's definitely not mine.  German Chocolate cake (mix).  I prefer just plain chocolate with white icing.  He loves that the cake was all about him.  I hope he savors every bite because it will be next year when another one is baked :)

I forgot to share the snow drop photo from earlier in the week when the weather was acting like spring.  This morning when I went to 7:30 Mass (yawn) the temperature measured 8 degrees.  Insane.  I believe the weather will be warming up once more but for now, I'm hibernating and waiting.

Yesterday, our son arrived for his spring break week and was busy setting up his new computer.  There's nothing like new technology in the room to geek out all about it.  The more I talk about it the more I know about it.  Who knew?  I remember pre-Ravelry days and being computer illiterate.  Look at me now!

The weekend included:  curry, rice and dahl - photography - new project to be shared soon - not eating that cake in the photo - list making - texts with the west coast daughter - lots of reading and finishing books

How was your weekend?


  1. Sounds like a good weekend and that green yarn is very pretty. Oh, and I'll take a little cake, please - lol.

  2. nice about the cake! :) fun about the computer and the texts to daughter! wonderful how technology can keep us connected! :)

  3. Aww ENJOY your son! Im jealous. We do have some bulbs coming out of the ground at our new house! I think they are daffodils and hyacinth!

  4. You did what needed to be done as birthday's are all about the person who is celebrating one. Hope your hubby had a great day! So nice to see signs of spring! We had snowdrops and crocus, which are now covered with snow.

  5. My husband loves cheesecake and I don't--but I always make it on his birthday.:)
    LOVE your snowdrops AND that gorgeous green yarn! So nice that your son is home.♥

  6. Happy Birthday to your husband! I believe you get extra good wife points if you make a cake that is not your favorite. :-) All those snowdrops are really lovely, as is that green yarn. Enjoy your son's visit!

  7. it is funny just how much you dislike this cake.. but so sweet you made it for your husband. A very happy birthday to him!

  8. We had a half busy one with good company, good eats, and walking. How wonderful of you to make this cake for your husband; glad he enjoyed it. Have some great QT with your son.

  9. I like German chocolate cake well enough, but it's not my fave. The one you baked looks pretty yummy, though.

    Sounds like it was a good weekend - I really like the green yarn btw.

  10. I think those bitterly cold temps are much harder to take after there has been a spell of milder weather. We did not get down to single digits, but the teens here felt extra cold! However, your weekend looks like despite that weather it was filled with lots of warmth!

  11. I love the sound of your weekend! Lovely yarn, and I would've eaten that cake!

  12. My brother's birthday was last Monday... his favorite cake: German Chocolate. Must be something about being born this time of year. LOL! It is always hard for me to tolerate cold after we've had warm. That yarn is a perfect color for St. Patrick's Day coming up! Glad you enjoyed some geek time with your son. It is pretty amazing all that we've all learned with Ravelry and blogging. Keeps our minds working. hee hee. Have a wonderful week, Karen! blessings ~ tanna

  13. That yarn is gorgeous! Hope you share some info about it soon.

  14. Your weekend sounds great...especially having your son home on break! Happy belated birthday to your husband...and love the color of the yarn. I couldn't believe how cold you had it over the weekend. Our lowest was 17.
