NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 1 (November 1)

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://anitashree.com/2017/10/12/its-approaching-that-time-again/ !  I believe this is year three of me participating in this November challenge, so here we go with Post #1.

So, I was wondering what to blog about for this November’s challenge, and I have decided that I will blog new pictures using the big girl camera, and a bit of writing every day.  I’ve been trying to kick start these habits for awhile now and I don’t know if I will be able to keep it up, but here’s hoping!  But, for post number one, I will already break out of my so-called theme and present…well, read on!

So as I sit here at home today, sicker than a dog, hacking and sneezing my way through a box of kleenex and hoping I feel better tomorrow, I want to celebrate my friend Judy who is throwing a premiere party tonight for the Great Canadian Baking Show which she is participating in.  It’s all very exciting!  And you can read more about it here:

Now, if you have Canadian TV, tune in tonight for Episode One on CBC!  Judy, I wish I could be there to celebrate with you, but trust me – you and your guests are much better off without me there.  Oh, and BTW, Judy is the inspiration behind Zombie Flamingos, having created the original (in my banner).  And she cooked up some zombie flamingo magic for me for tonight which I will, very sadly, be missing.  Thanks Jude!!

Judy (via personal secretary Gord) notes that the zombie flamingo creations are hers, but the cupcake is a gluten free creation from Origin Bakery.

  1. Yay! Another fun month of NanoPoblano! It will be interesting to see your photos! Hope you feel better really soon! 😉

  2. The zombie flamingos are GENIUS. Good luck to your friend, and yayyyyy Pepper season!

  3. Awwww … I’m so sorry you’re sick. Awesome cupcake, though! Feel better, my friend!

    • Thanks! Kevin went to the party, so my friend was able to send the cupcake home for me – it will be my treat for later today (one more day at home sick, then back to the salt mines…although, I am actually looking forward to being at work after being sick for 3 days!)

      • Glad you’re feeling somewhat better anyway! And yeah, it’s all relative … compared to being sick, perhaps work isn’t so bad, and tomorrow is Friday, so just one day! 😀 Enjoy your cupcake!

  4. All the best! Hope you recovered from the cold too!

  5. I came for the post and I found cupcakes – it was glorious 🙂 Get well soon, look forward to more pics, antics and flamingo fandango jingo jango 😉

  6. I’m sorry you missed your friend’s party! 😦
