I don’t know which is moodier – me or the weather goddess! We go from sunshine to clouds in an instant here, warm to chilly. And I go from focused to flighty just as fast. Perhaps they are related!?
I was able to tackle a ton of my list today. We also got the news that it looks like our bakery opening is being pushed from the very-hopeful May 20 two weeks back to June 3 since it will be nearly impossible to be ready by the 20th and we can’t open on a holiday weekend. We also have to give the GH opening team (who will come help us with everything the 2 weeks before we open) a 3 week lead time, so even though the store will be ready around May 1, we can’t open for an entire month!!! I know it’s all for the best, but it’s also extremely frustrating, especially since we’re paying rent and burning through money.
When I met the group in Northern Virginia last week and vented some of our stress to them they seemed surprised because I guess I paint a fun picture on the blog about picking out paint colors and putting up walls. But this is definitely the hardest thing we have ever done. Ever. And since I’ve gotten a lot more involved lately I’m feeling overwhelmed a lot of the time with all we have to do. Poor Matt is working even harder than I am, but then again, he doesn’t also have a blog business to run : ) I think given our new 3 week delay, I can take a couple of days away from my GH to-do list and work on stuff for KERF for a few days. Maybe even work in a coffeeshop – or shower!
To let go of some stress this morning I stepped away from the computer and CLEANED!!
Man cleaning makes me feel so good
I broke out the Scour Off and got some of the crud out of our appliance cabinet (I was inspired when I was putting the vita-mix back in there.)
So natural I just spread some on with my finger:
And then scrub with a cloth and all kinds of sticky are gone!
I’ve also got another cleaning project soaking at the moment!
For lunch all I wanted was a Hugh Jass salad covered in last night’s leftover veggies and amazing bleu cheese!
And that’s just what I had.
Hugh Jass Salad For One
- 2-3 cups greens, dressed in olive oil + honey
- Leftover grilled eggplant + shrooms
- Some sprouted beans + peas I picked up from the grocery store, which had a nice earthy crunch
- Mango chunks
- Leftover broccoli
- Scoop of hummus
- Bleu D’Auvergne
- GH Dakota cubes for croutons
Moose sparkles on the side
Excited for some afternoon yoga!
