Yes, deliciousness. I baked 120 or so cupcakes for our Student Council to give out to teachers and staff for Friday's Appreciation Day. I don't mean to brag - but I do kinda mean to brag. They were scrumptious. Chocolate cupcakes with either mocha buttercream and toffee bits or salted caramel buttercream with chocolate shavings. I could bathed in the salted caramel. Well - I wouldn't have actually wanted to bath in it... merely an expression to show how very much I wanted to keep eating it. Hard to believe Heaven will be better than that.
On to our Saturday. This was the first Saturday in a very long time with nothing on the agenda for me. Bliss. But I still felt that I needed to be productive. Darn those feelings. What I really wanted was to be creative - for just a little while at least. Then Eric reminded me that I had talked about writing/coloring on the walls. What joy! See, since our house is being bashed down in two and a half months, I figured we could use the walls as our canvases. We told the kids they could "have at it" in their rooms and draw, write and color to their hearts content. And we told me that too.
So I did.
I actually wanted to do this a long time ago anyway but just never did it. Since we have a projector, we also have a large naked wall, which bothers (bothered) me greatly. So I figured I'd paint a big huge frame on the wall that surrounds where the projector projects. The original idea was to do it really nice, but since we are just here for a little bit I thought I'd do a elementary coloring version and I love it. It is about 4 x 6 feet.
Have I mentioned that? That we are taking a 7 month furlough? We are. And we are super excited!!!!! Summer in California and first semester in Steinbach, Manitoba. Yahoo! Anyway, having the big dilemma about what to sell, pack or what-have-you.
