I took this shot of a milkweed leaf with a barbed wire fence a couple of weeks ago, but I don't think I posted it. I just uploaded it to iStock. I got three more acceptance notices today. Yeah!
I needed some good news. I had a good day a work today, until the last hour. All of my customer were really friendly, and liked their cakes, then I messed up and made a full size (huge) sheet cake and forgot to put the filling in BEFORE I iced it. It was already 15 minutes past time for me to leave when I realized what I had done. I probably would have stayed to fix it, but I was so tired, and we wanted to go to the wake for a friend of ours. I had worked an hour and a half extra last night, so it was 10:30 pm before I got home, then it was 2:30 am before I really got to sleep. Then the alarm went off at 5:30 'cause I had to be back at work by 7:00 am. Three hours of sleep is not enough! I know I start losing concentration fast when I'm tired. I need to ask them not to schedule me to close one night at 8:00 pm then open the next morning at 7:00 am. Unless they are willing to put up with my mistakes!
We are going to the funeral tomorrow, so that will take most of the day. It rained again today, so I don't have to worry about watering anything, but the weeds are terrible. They are going to take over if I don't get out there soon!
I looked for Maeve Binchy books on Bonanzle tonight, but didn't find any so I popped over to eBay and bid on a couple. In my latest cake decorating magazine, apple green and black was the hot color combo for the season. I did a couple to cakes with those colors, I have were striking, but this area is too conservative to really get into something like that. I would like to find some apple green and black fabric, though. Wouldn't that make a fantastic quilt?
Need to check my email, then get to bed. No rest for the wicked! I did remember to get a double mat and picture frame for my photo today. I'll post a picture tomorrow.
