One Stitch at a Time
A Knitting Story for Mother's Day

Piece of Cake

When I first read today's Think Write Thursday topic, I thought Piece. Of. Cake.

Because, really, how simple!  

All I have to do . . . is describe my ideal day.

A sunny day.  75º F.  Up North.  Sitting on the dock.  Watching the clouds and reading a book in the sunshine.

But.  Wait.

What about . . .

Snowed in.  Fire in the fireplace.  Tea and banana bread and a big pile of knitting.  (With no ripping back.)

But.  Wait.

What about . . .

Sunny.  Light breeze.  Digging in my garden; maybe pulling some weeds.  Everything blooming.  Bees and butterflies everywhere.

But.  Wait.

What about. . . 

A day at the beach in Belize.  Barefoot.  Margarita in hand.  Sound of the ocean.  Perfect sunset.

But.  What about . . . 

Perfectly cooked Thanksgiving dinner.  All my family gathered around.  Laughing together.  Remembering.

But.  Wait.

What about . . .


I'm sure you're getting my drift.


My ideal day?  

Turns out it's even more Piece. Of. Cake. than I imagined.  Because my ideal day is a day where I get to do whatever I want . . . in that particular moment . . . whatever it may be . . . with no hindrances or obstacles!

How about YOU?  What's your ideal day look like?

Yep! Being able to do WHATEVER you want would be ideal. Hoping today is like that for you!!


A day where I get to do whatever I want is not only ideal, but darn near perfect! (And I'm pretty sure it would include an actual piece of cake!)


Yes, those are the same challenges I faced. I guess it's good that we have so much love and good places and good things in our lives that it's hard to choose.


I really enjoyed the concept that there are many ways to create an ideal day.


This is absolutely perfect. My ideal days are those when I feel fulfilled in some way(s) -- time spent with family; time spent at my favorite places; time spent cooking or creating or, yes, even CLEANING; time spent exploring and discovering; time spent knitting, reading, talking; time spent "doing nothing." My favorite days are those when all (or at least most) of the cylinders are firing, I'm charged & re-charged, and something's happening! ;)


Belize here I come! A fun prompt and one that helps appreciate how fortunate we are that our ideal days are not few nor far between!


This! So. Much. This!


Ideal is a day in which I smile often! You say so well exactly how fortunate we are to be where we are-now.


Oh, this is so perfect! I love all your alternate ideal days, too, but the last one is a piece of cake.


LOVE IT! I had the same thoughts about this topic - love how you handled all the different "ideals"!


I don't know if they were the only perfect days but when I look back the most memorable ones tend to be those spent outdoors with family or friends. And probably any day which is carefree is a perfect day.


There's a lot to be said for a day that just happens. Those are generally the ones that are the best.


This was my thought process too. :-) The snow day started at #1!
