Chartreuse Knits

Where a college student learns--and struggles with--the zen of knitting. It's the process, not the product, though the product is much more fun to wear!


Life's Better with a Cupcake

Today heralds the beginning of a series of stressful and very hectic weeks. I have to coordinate various events in addition to schoolwork, and manage money for school groups as well as for myself. Coupled with meetings and visitings by my Daddy, and this week is quite full.

Today, however, is more relaxed than the rest of the week, and I felt like taking a walk around my neighborhood with the purpose of relaxing (and getting a carrot cupcake from Quack's bakery). The glorious temperature and lovely little houses along the tree-lined avenues of Hyde Park were exactly what I needed. Coupled with a delicious, moist cupcake topped with rich, smooth, cream-cheese frosting, and my afternoon was complete.

Blogland has a soft spot in it's heart for cupcakes. It really does. And I do too. When I feel upset, stressed, or in need of comfort, I often turn to sweet things. Diabetic in the making? Maybe.

May you all find a way to de-stress, and then get all your work done!
