An Ode

Have I mentioned that I write poetry?  It's really awful poetry, but I write it.

Here's a sample of my 'work':

Ode to a Cupcake

Oh cupcake, how I love thee
A miniature cake, just for me
With chocolate or strawberry or vanilla on top
Once I taste your goodness, I just can’t stop.
When I am happy, and when I am sad
Having a cupcake is never bad
Until I get on the scale and much to my surprise
I see the cupcakes now live on my thighs.

Today I could have used a dozen or so cupcakes to drown my worries, but that's not really going to solve anything except my overwhelming craving for a cupcake.  I would have liked to go for a run instead, but the timer ran out on the day before I could get that done.

So I guess I broke even, maybe?  No cupcake, no run.

TOMORROW I will get one up on the day!  I go to a strength training class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday...at 6:00 a.m.  It's early and I usually haven't had coffee yet, but I enjoy it (mostly when it's over, but still I enjoy it!). 

But enough of that...back to cupcakes...

Did you know that December 15th is National Cupcake Day?  (As if I needed a special day for a cupcake).  

And despite the title of my blog, I prefer my cupcakes fresh...from the cupcake bakery place, of course.


  1. have you tried the ones from Lux? I had one the other day at an event and it was amazing! They are right by our house down on Wm Cannon.

  2. too funny. Stopped by again. I'm no poet and I know it. :) Linda
