I finally tried out Georgetown Cupcakes. I’ve meant to for awhile as it was mentioned in Mintymusings and sounded very good. It was really by accident. I’d passed by a few times but it was never open. Eventually they came to me since I couldn’t go to them. Last week there was a birthday in the office and one of my coworkers brought in cupcakes. Not any old cupcakes either but Georgetown’s finest. The overall reaction was very good. Hazelnut topped cupcakes were greeted by a resounding yum as were the others. I, myself, went for the red velvet. The cake was moist but the icing was a bit too sweet for me. I can’t blame the cupcakes because I just might have been a poor flavor picker. All of the elements were there for a great cupcake so I’ll have to try again when I can hit the store and have more of a choice. To be continued……

I Love This Card

April 11, 2008

So, I was reading Boingboing¬†and they had this fabulous post about cards made of recycled paper with seeds embedded into them. How cool is that? When you get a card it’s hard to throw it away because someone took the time to send it to you and hopefully write something nice inside. I end up saving them and cluttering my place. Now you don’t have to feel bad about getting them out of the house. They won’t even fill up your trash bag. Just read and then plant. Yep, dig a hole in your backyard and bury the card. Eventually a flower will grow. Now you can always remember the sender when you smell the lavender.
