Sweetened Cocoa Paths -

A friend is making a cake for her grand-niece's eleventh birthday party.  There will be 11 girls and they will work their way around a scavenger hunt/activity course.  The cake is meant to reflect the course.  My friend asked me how she should make a dirt pathway.  Well, cocoa came quickly to mind - sweetened cocoa - what better path could there be?

My foot is still an issue.  I still have pain and I'm off to the doctor again, still wearing my pneumatic boot cast but this visit seems like a waste, as the truth, I've finally come to realize, is that I can do everything "right", and I am, but it takes time to heal.

Patience is a virtue I'm still working to bring forth. I'm with this quote today thinking yes, it's true, come on "me", let senses come forth to meet the magic cocoa paths I walk, crawl, or perhaps just sit upon.

"The world is full of magic things, patiently
waiting for our senses to grow sharper." - W.B. Yeats
