A rainy Saturday morning, again !! As I sloshed through chores and got ready for market the rain was a light steady drizzle but as I got in the van and started down the driveway I met a really hard downpour that continued almost all the way to market. Thankfully we out ran it to market and got things carried inside before the heavy down pour reached there.
G-son had decided earlier he would just go home instead of market with us which was a smart decision. He slept well last night and didn't wake me up until he hit me in the face early this morning,thankfully it was just a light tap across the nose.
As I sat and looked down the empty aisles of market I thought of all the things I could be doing instead of sitting here.
Hubbie left about 11:00 to come home as there were no errands that needed his attention on this Saturday.
Right after he left the customers started coming into market and they were buying, so much so that I completely sold out of baked goods and could have sold several more caramel cakes if I had of had them. This time of year is so hard to predict and the weather usually has a huge impact on business, but not today. Or maybe there just wasn't anything else to do in the rain ?
I left market a little early to go by Walgreens to pick up a photo order on my way home.
The rain has stopped for awhile to allow us to get my bakery racks unloaded and get the ball pit and some other toys loaded to haul over to Evy's birthday site. G-son went over with hubbie and me early to help set up the games we had. He had as much fun as the birthday girl did with all the older siblings of her friends.
Her party was scheduled to be at our house unless it rained and then it would be inside at the farm offices where her dad works. This is a really cute invitation.
I was glad we changed the party to inside as it poured the rain while we were there, leaving almost 3/4" in the rain gauge.
She had many family and friends that gathered to make her first birthday a special one. Rebekah cooked mac and cheese, patio beans, and slaw to go with hotdogs and hamburgers grilled by Aaron.
She also made this special farm cake which I thought was one of the best creative ideas I 've seen.
"I'm supposed to do what?"
Dad to the rescue !!!
Yeah I think Evy had a great first birthday !!!! what do you think ?????
As all the kids were taken home to get ready for bed and we cleaned up I thought how special this is to able to be involved with this special little family. We all are so alike and enjoy each other so much it just has to be God's hand that brought us together.
This has been a great day and a very blessed one.
Good Night and God Bless
