Wow! Has it really been since May 6th since I posted?! So it seems the rest of the world has been up to busy work too.. My friend Nancy over at Flying Yogini sums it up well today. She says, “..somehow I manage to keep on plugging onward in every endeavor because this chaos is where I find comfort.”
Chaos? Comfort? They both start with C. Same thing right? “More power to you!” someone told me this week. She asks, “How do I do it?” Between teaching, commuting, two kids, a dog, volunteering, and now an official PTA board member at our school. Well as you can see some things went to the bottom of the list (aka this blog).
Remember the angry birds? That’s what started off this year’s birthday marathon and celebrations. Here’s a yummy collection:
Of course after all the birthday festivities, I was in charge of teacher appreciation week.
I am cake pooped! No more I say.
People wonder how I have time to do all these. I thought and I wondered in amazement “how do I find time to do all this?” I think back at those late nights. I find the whole house quiet. It’s just me, cake, crumbs, chocolate, and my wild imagination.
For those hours of molding, painting on faces, melting chocolate, wrapping, and cutting, I found comfort. For that little bit of time, my mind is fully present to what I was doing. Not thinking about tomorrow or beating myself up for the things past. It is a culmination of excitement brewing up.. for I couldn’t wait to see the smiles of the ones who will get to sink their teeth into my creation.
Who knew cake pops would be a meditation.
