And here's why I haven't blogged lately: Friday, I went shopping with Emily for a catering event at nine a.m....We went to Maines, B.J.'s, Wegmans, Price Chopper, and Aldi. Em said, "Well, we went everywhere, but we didn't go to Tops". Well. Did I forget to buy chocolate chips? I went to Tops. I did not even start in on my baking until 6 PM yesterday. I made chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, chocolate cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes, and a vanilla sheet cake. I made the frosting for the cupcakes and cake, but didn't do the frosting until this morning. I made it to the catering event at 12:30 with the goodies, phew, it started at one.
Home...ah home, after so much running around. At my house, things don't just stop just because I'm not there. Yesterday the twins were visiting because big brother William fell off their trampoline and fractured his arm...and cousin Dani was there, friend Amanda was there, friend Irene was there...I offered Suzanne $20 to clean the house while I was gone, ha. Samuel, and Suzanne, and Jonathan all pitched in and cleaned up...yay!
Tonight I grilled on my new birthday present from Paul...a grill! My birthday isn't until Monday, but he's leaving for Boston tomorrow. Chicken breast and veggies...mmm.
I have to drive Paul to the airport to pick up his rental car in the morning...Emily is taking the four younger kids waterfalling tomorrow, and Jonathan went to Margaret and Adrian's place. I may just get some quiet time...:)
