Saturday is a Special Day

21 08 2011

–and although it’s commonly the day we get ready for Sunday, not a lot of that happened around here this weekend.

I got up early and hit Fred Meyer (Doorbusters coupon!) for back-to-school clothes and school supplies. Then I went to my garden spot, cleaned it up some, and watered. I was very sweaty. I dropped everything right inside the front door when I got home, although I’m not sure why.

I’m sure it was important, though.

Oh, now I remember. I wanted to get the wall painted before Rainbow’s dance recital. Except that became a moot point because I got about 1/3 into it when my friend called and asked me if I wanted to go for a ride.

The day was completely perfect; I could not refuse. Now the question is, can I call myself a biker chick because I’ve finally ridden a motorcycle?

Then there was the getting ready and coordinating and all that jazz for Rainbow’s dance recital that afternoon.

I’m pretty sure she was the cutest little bird ever.

When I got home, I ignored the pile of school supplies by the door and started baking.

My friend talked her sister into letting me cater the cupcakes for her wedding.

It was a bit stressful–I’d hate to have someone think back to their wedding day, “It was so beautiful! (Sigh.) But remember the cupcakes? Ugh.”

Luckily, I think they all turned out okay. And they tasted good, too–that’s what really counts, right?

With the profit from the cupcake factory, I’m going to be able to get a new light fixture for my room re-do. It’ll be dedicated to Jean and Joe-Pete, who made it all possible.

I also managed to get the wall painted, although there are still some touch ups that I need to take care of, plus the stencil over top. I’m a bit nervous about that–it won’t be cool unless it doesn’t look like a stencil, you know? So . . . next week, next week, we’ll finish it all next week.

Seriously. Right after I put away the school supplies.
