The Frosting on the Cake!


Red balloons on a cake ...
When sliced through ...
Create a heart so red ...
So luscious ...

But I can't give in ... alas, no fats, no sugars, no sodium.
Remember this, Clytie.
Stay away from temptation.

Look at the picture and marvel -
But keep the fork in the drawer.

It's too perfect to eat anyway, right?

I can't believe you kept your lens out of the frosting.
Oh it was probably nasty anyway...you know how all that grease gets stuck on you teeth. LOL Reverse psycology just think of the worst piece of cake you've ever eaten and know this one tastes just like it. Works for me...sometimes. ha ha
Hang in their babe we can do this. Love you

oh yea, absolutely too perfect to eat. To feel fantastic is much more valuable and alive than we feel after a piece of cake. Really fun post. And thank you for taking to heart what I share, you touch me.

excellent will power...besides the heart is the perfect reminder of life...the one you want to keep living. I'm amazed at how your eyes saw that heart right there in front of you. I hope you are feeling well these days.

Good for you Clytie, I am proud of you.
It is hard I know, but think in terms of destruction.. for a temporary little bit of cake.
The photos is great.. and you found the heart!
Hugs, Darlene xo

Ouch, that's hard to keep: no fats, no sugars, no sodium! But, if it makes you keep up your health -they say, you'll get used to anything...hope that is true, for you!
