Whether you need a smile….
Or permission to indulge in a tiny cake piled high with frosting…
It’s good to know:
Wasn’t that fun?
I saw this quote on Facebook this week
Once you lick the frosting off a cupcake it becomes a muffin.
And muffins are healthy.
and couldn’t resist creating a 5×7 printable for you. All you need to do is right click on the image and choose save as, and you can save it to your desktop and you’ll be able to print it or have your favorite photo shop print it for you.
Everyone seems to love cupcakes! So the next time you serve cupcakes, print this off, place it in a frame, and set it near your cupcakes. I’m pretty sure that everyone will not only get a huge kick out of it…but your cupcakes will quickly disappear.
Now for the spoiler….
Unless we make our muffins with high quality organic and natural unrefined ingredients and coconut oil, they aren’t any healthier than a cupcake with the frosting. Please don’t throw darts. [wink]

Catch up on all that’s Extraordinary…
this week at An Extraordinary Day:
Here’s a rundown of this week’s posts…
- Doing the Ordinary Things Extraordinarily Well :: The Week at a Glance 7/13
- Our Provider God :: Joy Day!
- I did reply! Really, I did! :: Comment Reply Notification
- The Laundry Room Makeover has Begun!
- Clothespin Wreath Tutorial :: Laundry Room Art
It was another Extraordinary Week on the blog!
Saturday’s weekly wrap up featured an Extraordinary quote. Sunday began with Joy Day! and a reminder of the good things that God has done as our Provider. Then on Monday, I shared how I reply to every comment made on the blog, only to discover that you may or may not know that I replied to yours….along with an easy fix, plus some gorgeous photos of Lupines. The remainder of the week has been about my laundry closet/room. It’s something I started and never finished and I like to be a finisher….so cheer me on as I try to make this corner a sweet place to sort, wash, dry, fold, and repeat.
Humbled and blessed.
What a blessing it is to have my posts featured at these lovely places:
Please take a minute to stop by these extraordinary blogs for even more inspiration.
On a personal note.
I did it again. If you’ve missed seeing me partying around blogland, I took a break. I haven’t felt like a social butterfly lately. Instead, I’d much prefer to sit down with you individually over a tall cool beverage and just chat. I really want to know what you’ve been thinking.
Three days without a phone is a challenge. Especially since we have no cell phone as a cost saving measure, either. This week I learned that our land line phone issue was the charger. Evidently the chargers are the parts that give up…not the handset. Of course we had to drive 30 miles and spend 20 dollars for a new battery to discover that. But, in the end, we bought a new discontinued phone for just 10 dollars. This whole ordeal took three days and three trips and I am certain that for all the talk about living ‘green,’ technology is far from it.
Last Saturday we also learned that our house is going on the market. The realtor has been through the house, a showing is scheduled for this Saturday morning, and the agency’s agents will tromp through the house on Tuesday morning. We are doing some things for the owner to spruce things up a bit and Tim is continuing to paint the house in this incredible heat wave. This has not been an easy project for him considering the volume of rain we got when he started, followed by the high temps.
This week we have one answer in the job process, “We will be candidating another applicant.” Not the answer we had hoped for. All while we wait to hear something on the others. I’m sure you are putting two and two together, and in this case it looks like zero, not four. If you pray, please pray with us as we trust God to move in a big way. He is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. And since I’ve got a pretty good imagination…. [smile]
Now it’s your turn….tell me what you’ve been up to this week.
