The PORCH is really coming along!!
The toe-kicks were installed today
And the barn door rails, which our screen doors will eventually slide along
Said screened doors:
So exciting!! The two gentlemen who have been on the project since they started ate all of my Halloween candy and the bowl has been looking sadly empty for days. So this evening I brought home a few loaves of Honey Wheat bread and a bunch of cookies and sweets for them tomorrow. I have a feeling they are going to be very excited : )
But even more progress was made at the bakery this afternoon. I spent hella long time on the retail side of things (which has become my new undertaking) and set out so many of our goods. I made signs to go with them – our Ball jars and sign holders Seana made us now hold the item name and price. Such a great use for both instead of boring informational signs.
I also completely organized the office – something I’ve wanted to do since JUNE – and weeded out a bunch of stuff that we don’t use or need there. SO MUCH BETTER!
But the biggest reason for a late bakery night was a staff meeting – preparing for the holidays with information and shirts! That’s the CEO in the background doin’ his thing..
We turned to our neighbors – Saigon Café – for a meal for the group. The owners there are so very sweet!! We’ve being meaning to support them more and felt this was a great opportunity to give them some business.
They not only provided a wonderful meal, but they brought over the food on nice dishes as if we were dining in the restaurant. So nice!
We had 3 kinds of entrée – pork, shrimp and tofu – all with veggies, plus eggrolls and some eggdrop soup!
Can’t forget the rice – both steamed and fried
I had a combo of shrimp + tofu. The best thing about Vietnamese food is that they don’t skimp on the veggies!
Plus an eggroll.
I think I have only gotten 26 in my fortune cookie ONCE in my life : (
But I did get a good fortune – something to remember!
