day off?

Friday, May 28, 2010

i AM hoping for monday Alison!!
well, thanks to Katie and Kevin helping, all the cupcakes are done. we did 300 to make sure there were extras in case of calamity.
one tiered cake was picked up, and one of the birthday cakes.
i started on the other wedding tiered cake, and both layers of the top broke. i have been doing this for 30 years and until now have NEVER lost a cake. grr. so i'm here baking another..the bakery ovens arent going to be run for 2 small 5" cakes!!!
ok back to it. the 3 tier sweet 16 cake is assembled just needs decorating. then just the baby shower cake and i'll have it under control, and MAYBE i can have Monday off!

a LITTLE better today

Thursday, May 27, 2010

ok so it got to 98 degrees just north of here yesterday. I got in the pool even though you cant see the bottom and there were unknown things lurking. i couldnt stand it any more. as someone here so well worded it..we got our high of the year and out biggest snowfall of the year all in one month.
i saw more people at walmart yesterday than ever, even more than at Christmas!! all trying to get cool. this is horrid...
I have to go bake. i hope the a/c caught up with the ovens yesterday as i have the same amount to do. then i will leave for a couple hours to let it catch up and go back later to start decorating...i have 3 large cakes going out tomorrow, then saturday the 280 cupcakes and tiered cake that goes with them, then another tiered cake. then just one on sunday..and hopefully monday i can take a day off and relax and remember my wonderful Dad who was a WW2 vet.
People have forgotten that Memorial Day is to remember our fallen military men and women, who kept and continue to keep our country free!!

    Oh lordy, BAKING in this heat??? You are amazing. I hope the AC is working well.

I've started planning my meals a couple of days in advance and cooking everything at once so that I'm only heating up the house for that hour or two and then I bless the power of the microwave. emoticon

    Geez, Holly, that weather is just crazy!!
It only got up to 84 here yesterday in the usually exceedingly hot and humid Mississippi Delta. Plus the record high for yesterday for this area is only 96!

    I hope you stay cool and get a chance to reflect about your Dad on Monday. It is supposed to cool off here so I'm hoping it does for you too...

....and I will definitely be remembering all of our unsung heroes on Monday....past, present and future! Thanks for reminding everyone!

/Anyone who knows me knows how i detest the heat. And this week is going to be hot. Some think its because i'm fat. But uts not..although that doesnt help. I have NEVER liked it. I thrive on the crisp cool days of fall and the frigid cold of winter. When i was small my mom would fill a cool tub of water and i would just lie in it in the summer if we werent at the lake. When i WAS or AM at the lake i am in the water. as in for 8-10 hours a day. i dont lay out in the sun, i lay in the water.
Summer makes our electric bill go up...i have the window a/c units on full blast. You can always get warmer with a sweatshirt..cooling off is another thing. I remember my dad being horrified one day..he came in and held up a stiff pair of jeans and said I FOUND THESE IN THE FREEZER!!! i said Daddy..i'm hot..i'm just making my clothes more bearable..he laughed at that one!!!
I hope this heat wave we are having goes away quickly..

    I don't mind the heat, but can't stand the humidity. Ugh. Send me your heat, but you can keep ALL of the humidity! I see NYS is going to be having higher than normal temps this week. You need to "go jump into a lake"...hehe

    Personally, I don't mind it warm, but 94 and humid (current conditions in my sunny back yard) is a bit much, especially in May! I hope your heat wave doesn't last too long.
