I tried updating my time zone profile last night so my posts would show the right date, so we will see. It is 9:09 pm on Monday, 1/3/11. Somehow my posts have always been a day ahead.
Here’s another photo from the series I shot on Friday. I decided to see if anyone can guess what it is. I’ll give you a hint. The photo was taken in my yard.
Today was a rather normal day at work. I did two signature cakes, a big one (SpongeBob) and a small one (Barbie), and a regular 1/4 sheet with three princesses. Then I made 11 extra 1/4 sheets for the cake case. A fairly productive day. I worked until 5:00, did a bit of shopping, then still had to fix dinner, but I was lucky. I still had leftovers. And I had picked up a package of instant potatoes. Don’t usually care for them, but either these were really good or I was really hungry. Could be a bit of both. Some frozen mixed vegetables and a sliced red pepper rounded out the meal.
I got some good news today, too. Two photos out of the last set I submitted to iStock have been accepted. Yeah!
I’ve been thinking about my Etsy shop, too. For the time being anyway, I am only going to make things that I really like that I can use for gifts if they don’t sell. I’m not going to look for the latest and the greatest, at least not now. And I’m going to spend more time on my photography. Not having much of anything outside to take photos of will give me more time to do some editing. I want to find a photo for the latest Photo Quest about textures. I’ve done a little bit with textures, but not much. I love water color filters. Perhaps I will like textures, too, if I spend some time working with them.
Now I’m off to create a spreadsheet so I can keep better track of where my money goes. Perhaps I will be more critical if I know I’m going to have to write it down when I get home!
