Friday schmiday

I should be working. I have a BUTTLOAD of work this weekend AND my peeps are coming to celebrate my birthday.

How is it that that always happens?  I DO want the work so I can make the paltry amount of money I make so I can buy things like organic whole foods and also the occasional splurge like this:

Sterling Silver Spiral  Barrette
(my  new favorite silversmith–not that I had a favorite before this–but her stuff is so awesome)
anyway, like I was saying, so I can not feel like I’m breaking the bank when I make purchases like the aforementioned.
BUT, they always send me a bazillion things to do on weekends that I have something particuarly special planned. Its like some kind of evil, overseas ESP.
Wait, what was I saying?
Right, work.
The lasagna ingredients are chopped and the bread is rising.  The Totally Loaded Oatmeal cookies are baked and Mom is bringing her famous Coconut Flake-Mini Chocolate Chip-Cream Cheese-Filling Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting along (the big mystery is:  will it be cupcakes or a cake cake??)
So we should be set up for a pretty good weekend that will include trips to AT LEAST two ice cream joints.
As long as I can figure out what to do with all this stinking work.

    1. I LOVE ETSY!
    2. THEY ALWAYS KNOW. The same thing happened to me this week the one day that I needed to have a little more time in the evening (but I’m not about to turn down work and, thus, money).

    I’m afraid the cake wouldn’t be quite the same by the time it reached either one of you gals!
