This week has been a little strange for me. We are in between managers at one of my jobs so things have been a little abnormal around here. One fantastic thing is that I had more time off than I normally do. I want to take a moment to thank everyone for all the nice emails I've been receiving due to the Historical Food Fortnightly and other recent posts. It is so fantastic to have such awesome and supportive readers.
My family got a dog named Gibbs. I'm really not used to puppy rambunctiousness.
I have never done a cake like this before but think it turned out nice. I liked their concept. It was for a bridal shower.
Helped Andy look at cars. He's still trying to replace his car after that accident. We were supposed to take a friend to the airport up there but they ended up taking an earlier flight so we killed some time at the Lehigh Valley Zoo. It's a smaller zoo but has one really neat thing that the zoos around here don't have: American Bison!
Had a large quantity of of spoiled cream. Turned into nice butter.
Did you all see that national proclamation from the president? I celebrated the newly formed national day of making by attending "National Day of Making--Afternoon in the Park" with Barrel of Makers.
We drew the scenery, played with some ducks and had a wonderful picnic style dinner.
Another week passed! I can't believe how fast this year has flown.
