Goodbye Week. Hello Weekend. Lessons Learned: Take 16.

Goodbye new haircut that is different than what I'm used to, but I went for it.
Goodbye first performance of new glee club, you guys are rockin' it.
Goodbye 350 degree oven working all day to produce bake sale items.
Goodbye color blue that I'm banning from the rainbow so my cake disaster is more accurate.
Goodbye to an 80-something year old couple I met in line at the grocery store that gave me an opportunity to do something good.

Proud of the Cake in a Jar, Cranberry-Lemon cookies, and Zucchini bread.

Hello Fall Family Fair.
Hello hayrides, football, bonfire, and picnic fare.
Hello hanging out with new school friends.
Hello settling in and planting our new roots quite nicely.
Hello being there in full support for those we love so much.

Total Disaster
Blue failed to leave the cake pan.
My lesson for this week is that I have to remain aware of my talents and gifts to the world. I can't be or do something I was not meant to do because it turns out disastrous. Stick with honing and growing the areas where I am gifted - it's better for the world and for my sanity. Ace of Cakes I am not. In the future, I will finally say "no" to cake baking as it is clearly not my calling.

Don't forget to comment your entry for the LOVD Giveaway! Time is running out!

My husband and son saw this post and wanted to clarify my failure...It's not in the baking of the cake but rather in the frosting of one that I have no flair. Thanks, I can feel the love.

I'm starting to check out your older posts, as time permits. I like your use of the Better Homes & Gardens jars and don't you love those jars! I used some for gifts pictured in my September Girls Celebration post.

Betty, I'm going over there right now to check out September Girls. Honestly, I was looking for the plain Ball jars and everywhere I looked they were all out - canning season and all. So, I felt I was "stuck" with the Better Homes and Gardens jars but really, they are beautiful, the glass is clear, and the tops were cute, too!

Brunella from Italy,
THANK YOU for your comment! And, no mistakes to worry about. Your English is fantastico! And, other than ciao and names of pasta, that's as far as my Italian goes. Keep those wonderful comments coming...good practice!
