Productive Saturday, Flylady Style

I got to help Joey in the bakery today thanks to Jacob’s and Tim’s willingness to watch the small folk. I have to say that I had a marvelous time working with Joey, which is one of my favorite things to do in the whole world. But, first, I got to do a couple of other fun things.

Amelia asked me if I wanted to take a walk with her first thing this morning, so, since we were in town and I had to wait awhile to start my bakery projects, I happily agreed. We walked to a garage sale and bought several cute, cute, cute baby girl summer outfits for a dime a piece! Then, we walked to the library where they were having a sale on biographies for, yes, a dime a piece. Let’s just say that I picked up a couple.

Then, it was time to start on my bakery projects. And here’s where the Flylady strategies came into play. One of my projects involved preparing some fabric that will bridge the gap between the ceiling and the new walls of the bakery’s meeting room (the new walls could not be constructed all the way to the ceiling due to lighting issues) and serve as a sound barrier. This was the least favorite of my day’s projects, so I decided to do that one first. I didn’t have my timer, but I decided to just sew for 15 minutes and then take a break, even if I weren’t keeping strict track of the timing. That worked splendidly and I got the whole project completed. I even had some natural breaks because Joey was installing the hood over the fryer and he needed my assistance at regular intervals.

Then, I got to start painting a strip of chocolate-colored chalkboard paint on one wall of the bakery. That was fun. And, finally, I quickly drew an “Opening Soon” sign for the windows. The only thing I didn’t get done was sorting through some cake decorating equipment. But, there’s always next time….

Bit by bit, we got a lot accomplished today. And I had a great time working with Joey. Hurrah!
