Slice of Life Sundays: 8-10-14


I’ve been enjoying some much needed vacation time but sadly all good things must come to an end. The vacation flew by and tomorrow I’m back to work with piles waiting my return. I really need to play the lotto more. I feel like I’m not meant to be at a desk all day. I’m meant for greater things but I don’t know what they are. Lol!

We didn’t travel anywhere on our time off. It was a staycation. We were going to go to some museums or places we hadn’t been before but we never did. Mostly we did some shopping and got things done around the house that we’d been putting off for a while. We also got caught up on shows and movies we had recorded on the DVR. We finally watched Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Boy o’ boy did I do some crying on that one. It astonishes me that movies like this, about killing, are what’s the norm now. Hunger Games, The Purge, etc. Then we wonder why our country is so violent. Maybe because children are being exposed to this stuff at such an early age.

Yesterday I met up with a friend to get the materials for the cookie bouquets that I’ll be making for her. I don’t make bouquets often so I’m a bit nervous. I’m also nervous because it will be my first time working with edible images. I just need to have confidence going in and believe that everything will be okay. They aren’t due for two weeks so I have time to get my plan of action in order.

I’ve done no baking whatsoever during my time off so I have no blog material. I think I have some pics of a card I made recently on my SD card so I’ll likely be posting that tomorrow. I need to bake some cookies so that I can do a test run on the edible images before the order is due. Is there anything y’all want to see? I’m already seeing lots of fall foods and decor on Pinterest so I’m thinking that I need to get started with some fall projects.

Don’t forget that Party in Your PJs is still going on. You can link up your blog posts here. This is an anything goes party, PG of course, so come on over and share what you’ve been working on. I need some inspiration.

Have a great week my friends!

  1. Melissa, Nice to hear that you enjoyed your time off and away from blogging for a bit. I’ve never used edible images but a friend uses them on all her cookies. She sometimes has issues with the edges curling. I read a tip online that recommends after flooding to wait 10 minutes for the icing to set up a bit before applying the image. I hope all goes well with your order.
