Last day of 2010

HOLY COW! This year zoomed by so fast. It is scary!

So many changes are going to happening 2011.

1. Courtney will graduate high school and start college.
2. I'm going to have to go back to work outside the home to afford Courtney in college. My home bakery business isn't near enough money. It is nice mad money.
3.Katie is going to be learning how to drive....the sidewalks won't be safe! Just kidding, she is very cautious.


1.Going to take a pottery course!
2. Losing weight once again! Back to the gym! Healthy eating!
3. I really want to do a wedding cake! I may just do one to see if I can for pictures.
4. Learn to use and buy an airbrush.

So what am I doing about reaching goals?

1. Well I am signing up at Studio S for pottery!
2. I have membership to gym! Making healthy menus dug out the light cooking. As January 1!
3. I am going to hint to Jim that the airbrush is what I want for number 46 B-day and take a class at SweetWise.
4. Going to go talk to some wedding consultants.

We shall see What happens!

Sizzling Sixteen is here!

There is three really bad things about reading Janet Evanovich's books. One, people tend to give you really weird looks when you sit and laugh while reading. According to Katie the other day a boy watched me reading in the orthodontist office. I guess the kid was totally mesmerized by my chest movements while laughing to myself. I hope he enjoyed the show. i guess i could give Lula a run for the money in the cleavage department Two, Hard to read with tears filling up your eyes from laughing so hard, and your nose starts to run. Three, it makes me crave donuts, pineapple upside down cake, crisp fried chicken, and all manner of stuff I shouldn't eat! Right now I am so jonesing for a donut. My mind and taste buds are at war I just typo ed "donot" instead of donut. So on some level I know I shouldn't grab my keys and head to Donut Country. Cinnamon twists are calling my name. Oh heck guess you only live once..... It's all Janet Evanovich's fault if I keel over with heart disease..... any way that is my story and sticking to it!

Cat in the Hat

I think the cake turned out great. Pretty please with my effort on this one. Still not prefect, but Rome wasn't built in a day. I need more practice. I'd like to be doing a cake a week.

I'm signed up for one more weekend at the Main Street Market. I'll decide from there what to do. Mean while I need to decide on what to make and get to baking for this weekend!

Let the Cleaning Begin!

Well, last night I found in my Email a message from Murfreesboro health dept. I have to have my kitchen inspected. Since I have Dyson & Cookie chances are really good that no matter how clean the house is I won't pass. I've been in some God-awful commercial kitchens. I was in one this weekend...the restaurant will remain nameless... they've been good to me but Eweee!They need to clean and degrease. Any way I've been cleaning all day! If nothing else I'll have a very clean downstairs and garage. My other refrigerator is in the garage...DIRTY!!! Courtney help by sweeping the garage with the broom and the shop vacuum. After today the garage is much cleaner than it was this morning, but it needs pressure washed. I've pitched a bunch of junk! The trash went today and one dumpster is full and the other is about half way there. OMG! we were on our way to being hoarders...YIKES!!!

I've also cleaned the boat! maybe we'll go to the lake!!! Katie & Shelby cleared it and sprayed down the rafts and floaties.

Let them eat cake!

Wow! I use to be so good at blogging! Now I just seem to be on Facebook. So many things have been happening in the last few months. Feels like we are in a constant state of change. it isn't bad or good kind of a mix. Poor Jim is rarely here, so now it seems strange when he is home. I'm either super busy baking or bored. There seems to be no in between for me. I love doing fancy cakes. Will be working hard to grow business. I am woman hear me roar..... 5th or 6th reinvention of me....
