Blustery Morning Cognations

It is way too early. Essie is in and out of the living room. She just left again. She was snoozing on the couch but as soon as I started typing she got up and left. I keep hearing an old Dunkin’ Donuts ad in my head, “Time to make the donuts…” because that is exactly why I am going in early. The night manager comes in at noon and has offered to let me go home early. I think I will take him up on it.

I will need the extra time if a coworker remembers to bring in the freeze dried fruit. He has a dryer at home that he has been playing with. He and the store owner are talking about trying to sell some of the stuff he has made in the store. So of course my mind thinks, “Ooo! We can put recipes with the fruit! Then people who are skeptical of eating them out right can cook with them!” Then of course I mentioned me making muffins, pancakes, and waffles to see what each medium would taste like. Aaaand this got mentioned to the store owner. Lol, so I will be baking when I get home this afternoon. I said I would bring in the muffins tomorrow. I will make strawberry, banana and strawberry banana muffins. I will make pancakes and waffles if I have time but if not I will try it another day. Everyone is very excited. Even me. So we shall see. I also need to make puppy treats.

I am looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. Hopefully I don’t get called in early tomorrow. I would like that extra hour at home instead of going in. I suppose I could always claim I am working on baking!

I was hoping to do an article for the paper about the upcoming Kids’ Christmas event here but I haven’t heard anything back. We wanted a small piece published before the event. I may try to cover the event as it happens and if they want the piece great but if not I can use it here. It is the 12th so I’d better make sure that I get the day off. I can play with my camera as well as catch up with a few friends!

I also need to do a review and share a link for my leather satchel that Chris got me for our anniversary this year. The strap broke and I was sent a replacement for free. But I will go into more detail when I write the review. I will try to do that either later today or tomorrow. I might be able to get it done while things are baking this afternoon. I promised that I would do this and I don’t want it to get lost in the shuffle of my life.

I don’t have any new photos to share so once again I will share some of my old photos. I was really nice to see posts from bloggers that I hadn’t see post in a while as well as so many new bloggers this morning! I read as many as I could squeeze in.

Wow, the wind is really blowing out there! There is a large tree that is all but laying on a powerline that I see every day on the way to work. On days like this I always wonder if this will be the day that the tree finally pulls the line down. I had better get moving. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
