Check out my day:
I'm in my new bakery (open for 3 months)
I have room to work and put all my supplies
I'm enjoying my lunch (leftover spaghetti, don't know why, but I LOVE IT),
I have just the right amount of cake orders
The cakes are coming along right on schedule and look good
I'm not stressing out about the orders
My youngest is at home with his aunt and cousin having a great time
The weather is gorgeous
DH called at lunch just to say I love you
All of my bakery bills have been paid and THERE IS MONEY LEFT!!!!


Sometimes I just like to sit back and smile and try to burn this memory into my brain to take out when I need it on a rough day. icon_biggrin.gif
Anyone else having a good day?

Lovely to hear someone taking time to smell the roses. Good for you thumbs_up.gif
Yea, my day's ok. My St George and the Dragon cake turned out cute and my parents were thrilled with it. My nephew's guitar cake is going well so far. My house guests are moving out tonight (best friends, but still, after 2 months, ya know... party.gif ), and hey, it's the weekend!

Should be a great day/weekend, etc.

Hope yours continues on the merry path it is on! icon_smile.gif

i'm in my OLD bakery...
stuff is piled up everywhere...
nothing but 2 vaults for lunch...
WAY too many cake orders....
cakes look good but i'm way behind...due to too many drop by customers...THAT STAYED WAY TO LONG...and a crazy salesman i thought i was gonna have to kill.
StReSsEd OuTtTtT
but
made enought money to get a new roof this month,
AND
had some leftover spaghetti for dinner(i love it too)
and...i'm picking up a new adopted pug (Spanky) on monday...excited about dat.

this has been an awful day....
crazy customer stayed talking non stop for at least an hour,
scarey salesman stayed too long too...till i finally told him.."dude, i aint gonna buy yer crazy soap...(kinda reminded me of micheal douglas in the movie "falling down")

then another custmer was hacked off cause her cake had pink on it...(i redid it in about 10 minutes...but i did NOT need that today...

running far behind, so i closed up and am going 90 to nutin to catch up...who comes banging on the door?

yappy customer from earlier in the day...HAD TO SHOW ME HER FLOWERS FROM HOBBY LOBBY...and yap 15 more minutes

i finally told them i had to work...they said, "oh go ahead, and continued to stand there watching me as i zip around, like they were watching ace of cakes...and commenting to each other about how fast i could do stuff...i finally spelled it out and told them they needed to leave so i could work, the daughter went to the car...momkept staying to watch the show.

ugh, finally home, i need to go back, but i won't.

anyhoo...."they all lived happily ever after.

Yeah.. for you Jill! I love your post! gratitude is wonderful! There was a saying on a calendar I kept..

"One single most grateful thought, raised to Heaven is the most perfect prayer"..

Sounds like you have it down! Keep enjoying those moments when they come to you...
