I am really in the thick of things here now, as I prepare for Friday's arrival and my yard sale weekend. Yesterday I got a lot done in the way of preparations.
I 'organized' the piles I had set aside in each room of this house, into piles in ONE room of the house! That doesn't sound like much of an accomplishment-but each of those mounds on the floor is seperated for its own table and each is freshly priced.
Yesterday I made the signs and today we will be hanging them around town and such.
Last night I made my first batch for the bake sale-and boy, do they look SCRUMPTIOUS! Apple Butter Spice muffins. When you bite into them, the centers have applebutter baked right in! They are resting peacefully in my freezer until the big day-of course, Matt got to try one this morning...
My plan of attack is this: Each night when the children get to bed, I will start a baking project. That way, during the day the house will still be cool and hopefully, I can accomplish ALOT. I am hoping to do several pies because they are 'big tickets'.
During the day, I will work on yard sale stuff-though, in truth, that is mainly all done.
Now-to keep the children from playing in these piles and mixing them all up; to keep them from peeling ALL the price stickers off and displaying them on themselves; to keep the Panda from pounding my fragile things together.
My baking might be the LEAST of my worries!
