We’ve had a busy past couple of days over here! On Thursday, I was contacted to sell granola to a shop near Lancaster, PA. This wasn’t my first wholesale request, but it was the first time I said yes! I’ve been baking and baking and baking some more.
I’ll be shipping 28 bags of granola out this week (on top of other orders) and Jimmy laughed at my timing. Here I am, eight months pregnant, making 14 pounds of granola 😂
On Friday, a friend asked if Braid Bakery can supply 300 cookies for an event next week. Obviously I said yes again! I have a hard time saying no to baking 😉
Aside from all the baking, we’ve had a fun weekend. Saturday morning found Sadie and I at a local craft show. She received five dollars for her birthday from her cousins and was ready to do some shopping!
She was such a delight and we visited every craft table to see all the beautiful jewelry, crocheted items, and other handmade goods. We ended up leaving with some bracelets, a crocheted purse for Sadie, and a Christmas pillow for me.
Jimmy was home, hard at work on some church stuff, and then picked up paint for baby boy’s bedroom. We finally pulled ourselves away from baking and working in the afternoon and went to not one, but two fall festivals.
The first festival was pretty big. We hadn’t been in a few years and were shocked at how much it had grown since we last attended.
My favorite vendor was an alpaca farm. They sold all kinds of goods like socks, sweaters, finger puppets, and more. We ended up buying Niva a dog toy made out of alpaca fur and she loves it. I picked up a pamphlet so Sadie and I can make a field trip out to the farm for a tour.
Sadie was a big fan of the free train ride and the bounce houses. After we left, we grabbed dinner at home and walked to our next fall festival. This one was right in our neighborhood and much smaller! It was fun catching up with neighbors, watching Sadie go down slides, and decorating a pumpkin together.
We were all worn out by the end of the evening, that’s for sure! Now it’s Sunday (and Sadie’s fourth birthday!) and we’re headed into the evening church service.
We’ve been pet sitting Niva’s bestie today, so she’s very happy! I have so much more to blog about (Sader Tot took an art class!), but so little time. I’ll try and get back to this space ASAP because it’s my fave!
