He was "geeky" enough to be nice to your parents. He was cute enough to be a heart throb. You wouldn't have to sneak behind the bar, roll up your skirt, buy a pack of cigarettes .... like you would have if Mick Jagger had asked you out on a date.
Yea .. Davy Jones was the dream date of a small town girl.
And always will be.
Tonight ... I'm teaching a brioche class for Scott Community College. This is always one of my favorite classes.
And this spring ... it one of my favorites for a special reason.
It is heavy on eggs!! Eight eggs per batch of dough!
OMG! This mild winter has kept the girls laying like crazy!!!! Often .. I will gather 4 dozen eggs a day!
And I get to sell 8 dozen to the college tonight so for one brief moment .... my refrigerator will be empty.
As Honey says ..... Praise the quiche-less supper!!!
I think all rational behavior has left the Lafrenz household.
We are re-decorating/re-organizing the laundry/pantry/storage room. Which means moving two freezers, painting, stripping wallpaper, repairing a ceiling and emptying 3 pantries of canning jars etc. And then figuring out what kind of flooring I want vs what I can afford.
As unorganized as the room is .... as horrible as the paint/paper/flooring decor is ....... this is just absolutely crazy. We have less than a month to pull this all together.
This is the point that you pray for me.
I will need it as the pantry shelves end up in the living room, kitchen, tv room and bedroom.
I'm just hoping I don't have to fill the bath tub with pickled beets.
So while that is going on ............ I decided to create a new website!!
I have been happy with the content of my latest website ... but the font, type size, color, layout .... has not thrilled me. And it is really important to have a fresh, clean website.
So -- with adult beverages in hand --- I've been creating a new one.
I'll let you know when it is complete and up.
And finally ........... if you are addicted to Pinterest............. (who me?????????) I have done a board for Miss Effie's Country Flowers.
Now -- I have loved this pinning thing for several months. But the creating a board for a business has been .... well, I don't know how it has been.
The best thing about the board ... it will help show people what is available here on this little old flower farm. If they can find it. This is the part that I'm not getting yet!
So those disconnected sentences are the essences of our lives at the moment.
We are in big trouble!
