Today is a sad day...a really sad day. It's not life or death so I guess I need to keep it in perspective but it's still very sad.
You remember my gripping cliff hanger that left you begging for more right?? Well I had a bunch of pictures (hundreds actually) but you take hundreds to get a few - the beauty of digital - so I could show you what I've been up to lately.
The above isn't what I've been up to it's just to keep your attention so I don't lose you...yet!?
Well yesterday as I'm trying to retrieve these off my slick slim red external hard drive I tote around with me (yes I carry it everywhere because you never know when you need a picture of yourself on a bad hair day from 1997) well on this drive is the oh-so important and packed full of all my bad hair days folder titled "My Pictures" and it is EMPTY! Did you hear me empty....talk about crickets!
I wanted to cry, I think a tear began to well up, I wanted to scream....I checked and re-checked a dozen times plugging it into 3 different computer and still the "My Pictures" folder is EMPTY!
We have an amazing IT stud at work that is currently doing some restore thing with the slim chance that when I plugged it in to my laptop at work that this is when the gremlins ate all my pictures. I have some backed up but this little slim jim WAS MY BACK-UP! So a ton could be lost.
And how sad you may never get your cliff hanger....I know life hurts sometimes!
sorry just another commerical break - sorry it's the TV biz in me right now..........
So right now I'm choosing to think about happy things and sometimes when I need something to make me happy I just want chocolate cake and nothing else can really take it's place. But chocolate cake isn't an option today...thank goodness Ronnie isn't hiding any under her desk or that's where I'd be sitting right about now.
So instead, I'm skimming through my "someday I want to cook or bake this" folder cuz as my life would have it......that folder is NOT empty! It's packed full of things I can't have right now...darn diet!
I want to dive into this picture I mean dive like the first time I learned how to dive and went in a complete circle and hit my head on the side of the pool...yes like that I want to hit my head on this cake!!
NO FAIR (as my nephew used to say)!
Yes there's a chocolate theme going on - it should have been my middle name!!
These would be for my BFF cuz she hearts them big time and I'm nice like that...okay sometimes!
Okay are you dying yet...........well it's not all desserts..
If you haven't met my friend Joy the Baker she's amazing......well okay she's not my friend, we've never met, she doesn't know that I exist but I love her recipes and with goodies like this in her kitchen I really really wish she would be my friend.
all pictures used and borrowed from joy the baker's site.....
