Blogging and Baking...yummm

Today I am taking a "sewing break" and doing some baking. This Saturday I will be providing 160 cookies, 3 sheet cakes and a three tiered wedding cake (only the top is real) for a friend's wedding...OH, and I am doing their flowers. SO FUN. But so much work. And this Saturday is also David's 1st Birthday!

Yesterday found me making 5 batches of cookie dough to refrigerate and chill overnight. Then this morning at 8 I started baking. I have already finished the peanut butter cookies and am now working on the giant chocolate chippers. ...and did I mention that I chose this week, when the temperature has been over 100 every day, to do all my baking?!!! AHHHH... Thankfully my wonderful husband JUST fixed our air conditioning. It had been non op for almost 2 years. I am so so so so so grateful that he choose this week to fix it. :) Happy baking wife.
While cookies bake I am hopping around from blog to blog finding all sorts of new and wonderful sites. WOW.  There are so many amazing blogs out there. Today I only visited 5 or 6 but they were fantastic. Sighhhhhh.... Someday I will get mine up to speed. If only I were computer crafty as well as "normal" crafty. I mean some of these ladies have super cute "buttons" on the side of their blogs and fun links etc... Humm. Well, one step at a time. For now I will be content with having an operating blog. Later I will crack open my brain and figure out how to have an "Artsy" blog. (oww timer just went off again. Gotta go pull out another batch).

  4. Wow you are one brave mama, this sounds like the most work ever. I hope everything got done in time, and that you were able to enjoy a little rest at the end of it all.
