THE BLUES …

… yes, even cowgirls get ‘em.

I am taking the day off. See you all on the flipside. I leave you with my cake of the day (for a work colleague of Sidey) and the food trivia of the day (directly copied from foodreference.com). Have a good week and be careful out there.

    Hope you’re not too blue and a day off will fix it.

    I love that teapot. And that looks suspiciously like Maltesers on top of the cake…

    1. SidevieW says:

      It was maltesers. When you come to visit, I’m sure Cindy will make you a cake with a whole tower of maltesers on top, losely held by whipped cream

      it was a wonderful cake, eaten all up by the steering committee meeting attendees 😉

      1. Tilly Bud says:

  9. souldipper says:

    I thought you would be having visitors this week, Cin, but I see Tandy’s comment. So – the blues are the real, feeling ones. I’m so sorry and am sending you lots of positive thoughts, hugs and wishes.

  10. Leeswammes says:

    Hope you have a good day off. And I hope they are sweets and not pills, in that bowl. 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      LOL, yes, they are liquorice comfits 🙂

  11. nursemyra says:

    What are the blue lozenges?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Liquorice sweeties 🙂

  12. bluebee says:

    So that’s your secret for being able to pack so much into a day – Viagra for women! Seriously, Cin, I hope those are some sort of sweet (liquorice perhaps?) and not something to be swallowed whole.

    That cake is beyond a triumph.

    Enjoy your breathing space – it looks like a good sunny day there for escaping the demands of your desk

    1. theonlycin says:

      Bwahahaha bluebee 😉
