Bits and Pieces

Summer is in full swing as the twins are out of school
and my daughter has graduated!
Time with your kids definitely goes by as 
quick as a blink of an eye. 

Things are still in the works on the building.
Slow and steady wins the race, they say....

I avoid going to the market, bank, shopping, etc.
to avoid the million dollar question:
"When is the bakery going to be open?"

Trust me, I want it open NOW!!!! But, as luck would
have it, my contractor (husband) works full time
elsewhere so I only get him part time which means
evenings (sometimes) and weekends (when other
things aren't scheduled). 
As for me, my kitchen is usually a bustling place.
I don't ever say No to an order unless I am heavily 
booked. Even then, I will stay up all night
to accommodate my clients. 
Once the bakery is open, my hours will be set
and there will be no more baking from home.
The French Pressed Home will again be my place
of refuge. 

I am very happy/lucky/blessed to have been able to start this
amazing dreamy business from the kitchen of our home.
I do, however, look forward to "going to work" and "going home". :)

Being homebased has been wonderful. Especially with the kids 
and their schedules. The flexibility of being able to work 
my baking around things, has been great. 

Even though I've been "home", I haven't had time
to have a proper vegetable garden.
I didn't plant a thing this year.
Many of my herbs reseeded themselves as
did my little Zinnia patch. As I sit here, at the dining
table, I'm looking out at the coop and see those brightly
colored flowers standing tall. 
{Thanks for being reseed troopers, little flowers!}

And just like that, it's time to get to work.

Until the next time.....
