After three days of baking for the Villa Ramona Fund Raiser Bake Sale I needed to sit down, put my feet up, and enjoy a fresh bouquet from Trader Joe's.
I really need to learn to say "NO" but it doesn't come easy for me. As I've been a "Yes, I'd love too" person for way too many years. My last "Yes, I'd love too" came as the Baker for our Bake Sale Fund Raiser for the Villa.
Since it seems I am the only one who bakes in the Villa, I said I would do the baking if they would supply all the ingredients. Little did I know how many orders would be put in for Banana Bread, Cookies, and Scones
The Bake Sale Fund raiser was on Monday, so I spent Saturday, Sunday afternoon and Monday morning in the Kitchen!!!!!
Packaged, labeled and ready to take down to the Clubhouse was 15 loaves of banana bread, 20 dozen cookies (choc. chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter) and 4 plates of scones.
Monday night, when all was said and done, it sure felt good to crawl in between nice clean sheets.
The Villa has a Annual Fund Raiser for really good causes, but this is the first time they have had a Bake Sale as part of it...I guess the Lord brought us here for "just a time as this"....or was that Queen Esther....haha. But that's another story.
Now you know why you haven't been visited for a few days!!
