Posh Party Cake Problem Solved




“Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.”~David Starr Jordan

The first part of getting anything done is to identify the action needed at the time. Do it. Then move on. I know many of you must have been very distressed at that first photo what with the little trapped animal cake suffocating inside and all. ME too. Clearly someone had to take action. Having seen this problem before, I quickly scooched that fancy ribbon right off the portable prison and let that little darling out. It had withstood the disco by the pool, the beefcakes in bikinis handing out champagne, and the four star fancy prawn buffet. That little guy needed some air.

Just a souvenir. Little guy took a spill on the ride home. And the gentle night air had warmed him up a bit so the the rich chocolate perfume wafted ever so slightly in my direction. Not sure if he's a bunny or a mouse. Are those licorice ears? He was showing all the signs of too long out of the fridge. Having seen that problem before too, I knew exactly what to do.

Yep. Problem solved. Deliciously.

I thought we needed a piece of cake Organizing Monday. Now let's see what I can do with my 3 Most Important Tasks. I am determined to knock a couple of items off that striped list this week. And get one bugaboo of a procrastinated task cleared. Perfection. Wanting perfection with THAT one is the hold up. So I am going to treat it like this posh party cake. Let that little guy out and do what begs to be done. The third? Ugh. Head on with that one two. I am going to get what I want there. Just because something is difficult, not the reason to give up. Maybe just nibble away until it's done too. So, got your tasks all mapped out? Let's go let them out of the box and eat 'em up. Maybe they will turn out to be delicious too.

Janice,

He's a funny-looking little dude, for sure. Glad he found a good home... and the box looks more interesting now, too.

Good luck un-procrastinating!

Regards,

Kelly

OH YES PLEASE do paint a piece of cake for us...
Missing those soo
I don't know about the ears though..
Earless I think might be preferable, but with ears and tail if you must.
Just DO IT!
