Things are progressing well for me. It's funny, I haven't worked this much in a week in AGES! And I love it! I have baked something every day this week and I couldn't be happier. :) I have wanted this for so so SO long...and it is finally happening.
It looks like my business cards are going to arrive tomorrow or Monday. I'm shocked at how quickly I'll get them...I opted for free shipping...which was supposed to take 14 days. If I get them tomorrow, it will have been a grand total of 3 days.
This afternoon I went out with Grandma to the grocery store. Audrey didn't come with us, she wasn't feeling very good. So I did Audrey's groceries for her. When we stopped back at the condo to drop off Audrey's stuff, Grandma and I ran into the superintendent who had bought some of my baked goods on Saturday (and is getting one of the pies tomorrow). When he saw me, he broke into HUGE smile and said, "your lemon meringue pie is the BEST I have ever had. Please tell me you're going to be opening your own bakery." When I told him for now it was just going to be a home-based business, he said, "that will work too. Pass along some of your menus and business cards and I'll get them out for you. And I'll definitely be ordering more pies."
I also got the nicest email from my sister today. I will admit I cried when I read it.
|I just wanted to send you a quick message to tell you how amazingly proud I am of you. You venturing out into this business all on your own, and finally doing what you love.
Just had to tell you that.
It's still bringing tears to my eyes, 6 hours later. :)
And here's a sample of what I made today..well this morning. Once I'm done this blog I'm going to be putting together 4 pies. :)
Mini Carrot Cakes
And here's my Power of 10 update:
10 minutes of fitness:
I danced around my living this morning, in a fit of sheer joy.
10 minutes of housework:
Other than staying on top of dishes, I didn't do any other housework. Although, at least my kitchen is always clean now. :)
10 minutes for ME:
My entire day is about me. I haven't felt this optimistic in a LONG time.
