All in a days work

Saturday when I was off I went out and got new shoes for work. I used to buy cheap ones because they get ruined pretty quick with grease spots while I'm frying donuts. I can no longer wear cheap shoes when I'm on my feet all day long. I pay the extra price for the sake of my feet, back and legs. In an attempt to try and keep them from getting ruined the first day out I protected them with coffee filters while I was doing donuts. Notice the left one already has grease spots on it. My shoes stayed clean though.


Aside from my regular work yesterday I also had two cakes to do. The first one, the customer wanted to know if I could draw water with a boat and fish in the water. I told her I could but it would pretty much look like a kids drawing. So then she asked if I could put an actual photo on the cake that she had.  I taped aluminum foil to the back of the picture since I didn't know if the frosting would seep through the photo paper. It worked out pretty good. That's one ugly fish in the picture.


The second one they just asked for bright colors of my choosing. I chose yellow.  Apparently Uga is what the grandkids call the lady having the birthday.

It's about time

Time is free,
but it's priceless.
You can't own it,
but you can use it
You can't keep it,
but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it
you can never get it back.
 Harvey Mackay
 
 
Saturday was a beautiful day. It was 54 degrees by 10 am. Now I know to those of you who live in warm climates that sounds pretty cold but to me it was like heaven. 
Gibbs and I went for a walk, then I took my camera out to the back yard. There's still nothing but dead stuff but....
 
....the sky was blue

and I found a splash of red from these berries hanging among the bare branches of the forsythia

Finished

Back on January 12th, in this post I talked about pulling out the knitting loom and making a scarf. I finally finished it just last week. I had made good progress with it and then it sat for a long time untouched. I'm famous for doing that.

I originally planned to make it an infinity scarf but after taking it off the loom and attempting to join the ends I gave up and decided it would just be a regular scarf.
