I made this pumpkin a long time ago. According to One drive memories it was 2012 for the picture. That may be about right. I still have it and still put it out every fall.
Some of you were with me way back when I made this and may remember what I made it from. Do you have any guesses? Come back tomorrow and I'll tell you

I think I can finally see a glimmer of the light at the end of the tunnel. I just have to make it through today and tomorrow and I can finally have a day off. Let me tell you, I'm ready for it.
I'll be starting at 4am today and tomorrow both. Today I'll be done at noon and tomorrow at 1:00.
Just a bit of what I've had to do on top of my regular work this past week.
Sunday- 50 croissant rolls and 4 French breads
Tuesday- 2 dozen donuts 32 Italian bread
Wednesday- 2 dozen donuts and 45 Italian bread
Thursday- 45 Italian bread
Friday- 1 bag of pepperoni balls and 50 Italian bread.
Today- 5 different donut order for a total of 91/2 dozen donuts (this could be higher if I get to work this morning and find additional orders that came in after I left on Friday) I also have an order for 200 club rolls.
I think when this is all over with I should treat myself to some retail therapy.

How many of you had one of these when you were little?
Not only did I have one but my children had one too.
I used to get all dolled up and ride my trusty steed to places that only existed in my imagination. Don't believe me? I have proof.
Yes, that is so me. It was a zillion years ago but it was me. I think I was maybe 4.

So this week I'm going to be feeling a little snarly and a lot tired. This is fair week and if you've been with me for a while you know how I feel about that. The baking isn't nearly as heavy as it used to be years ago but it's still a hectic week.
This year is a little different. The girl who normally works my days off is taking Saturday as a vacation day. That means I have to work. That means I miss the fair parade that goes right by my house. That means that I have to get up extra early and deal with the massive amounts of donut orders. People tend to like our donuts for watching the parade. I kind of knew that I would end up working Saturday but I figured he would give me another day off during the week. No such luck. I am working 6 days this week for a total of 46 hours. That doesn't sound like a lot of hours but being 61 years old and just worn out it's seems humongous to me.
