Life has been pretty busy around these parts. I just got back from a spring break vacation to North Carolina. Since Lincoln didn't have enough vacation days to cover this trip and our two summer trips we have planned, I took the kids and went without him. Spring break fell at the perfect time- the weather in NC was perfect, and the weather here was miserable.
Now that I'm back, I have only a few days to get ready for a garage sale this weekend. They are so much work! But on the bright side, I am doing some major unloading of clutter and unused items. Nothing is coming back in. If it doesn't sell it goes to Goodwill or the dump. I'm done.
Next weekend I have my first large cake order. I'm doing four cakes for a dual sweet sixteen party with 75 guests. I'm nervous, but excited. These two projects should keep me pretty busy. I have lots of plans swimming around in my mind of projects I am itching to do on the house. I can't decide which to do first. Hopefully I'll have something to show you soon!
Today is my birthday and Lincoln got me one of these:
...a grain mill attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer. We've been organizing our food storage lately and decided it was high time we got a better grain mill so we can use our wheat. I can't wait to share pictures of our new shelves, and I can't wait to start canning produce from our garden to fill those shelves!
