Wednesday Check In

Whoa, the last two days really got away from me! As a result, I’m super late answering Monday’s blog comments, but I’m heading off to answer those once I finish setting up this blog. Today, things will settled into a more normal routine for a few days. Instead of waiting for Friday, I’ll tell you know what I was doing. Yesterday was Biker Witch’s birthday. So I baked the cakes on Sunday, then Monday I tried caving and decorating something she’d like. She loves Eeyore so…

I used the fondant I made and liked working with it. That’s what kept me super busy. Hard to believe an innocent looking cake takes so many hours of work, LOL. Then yesterday, Biker Witch and I lunch and did a few little shopping things, then back to her house to have cake with her Biker Hubby. We always have fun. But whew, by the time I go home I was beat.

By the way, I saw your suggestions of a book cake and I’m thinking about it! I have a couple other family birthday cakes coming up, but I’m going to start looking for book cake inspirations :-) One day down the road, I hope to make some kind of Wing Slayer cake too, but that’s a ways off yet.

So that’s my Wednesday Check In–how’s your midweek going?

    Awww… I love it! Of course, I love Eeyore, so naturally I would love an Eeyore cake. Happy Birthday to Biker Witch, too! Yay. I love birthdays. It’s birthday season in my family. Loads of birthdays Aug-Oct. =o) Ooo, a Wing Slayer cake would be awesome!

    Midweek is going okay. I finally got back to writerly stuff yesterday, making edit notes again. After so many weeks away from it, I was afraid I would have to go back and start at the beginning, but I slipped right back into the story no problem. Yay. This book is a behemoth, though, so it still won’t be a fast process. Oh well. The book will be better for it.

    EEYORE!!!!! Thanks for noticing me…. I 💖 Eeyore! That cake is so cute. Yay for Biker Witch birthday and sister time! Happy Belated B-Day, Biker Witch!

    It’s Wednesday? How did that happen? Revisions stalled for me because I couldn’t decide how to handle the background characters and opening situation with the hero. I think I’ve made a decision this morning and hope to get on that.

    Stormy has a rain make-up game tonight at 6:00 and then the Cards play the Dodgers in a win-or-go-home. We’ll see what happens.

    That’s pretty much the state of my being at the moment. Plus, it’s still dark outside. My body keeps fussing at my brain because–dark! Should be sleeping! In bed! But brain? Nope. Not happening.

    Happy Hump Day, witches. Also, I agree. A Wing-Slayer cake would be pretty awesome!

    Eeyore turned out just wonderful! I bet Biker Witch was quite pleased. You’re really enjoying and mastering this new hobby. What’s up for the next cake? I know, ask Turbo what he thinks you should make. Being a kid you never know what they come up with.

    The week is flying by for me too. It seems we can never just relax.

    I hope you have a great afternoon.

    B.E., thank you so much! I had no clue how popular Eeyore is until I put him on my FB page, LOL.

    Wow, that’s great that you were able to pick up from where you stopped and keep going. That’s a sign of amazing things ahead. And no worries on it being a big story, you just tame the time it needs to fully develop. The finished book will be worth it!

    Silver, thanks! It was a fun cake to do :-)

    I hope making the decision opened up the floodgate of words for you today.

    I finally caught up and know today is the big day for the Dodgers and Cards. Wizard wants your Cards to win. Trust me, I get minute by minute updates when we’re both home, LOL.

    I hear you on the body brain disconnect on sleeping while it’s dark. My brain is waking up at 3am and today I’ve hit the wall on exhaustion. I know you hit that wall at times too.

    Happy Hump Day to you too!

    Viki, thank you!! Biker Witch seemed genuinely pleased. I loved her graciousness about it since I kind of just sprang the cake on her. I was afraid to tell her ahead of time in case it turned out a mess. I’m not good enough yet to trust my skills :-)

    I could ask Turbo, but I’m trying trying to save cakes for him for special days. He wants to come over and make cookies with me though–and you know I love that!

    I hope it’s just normal life stuff keeping you buys and nothing is seriously wrong–especially with your mom or Julie (also hope I remembered her name correctly).

    Hope the week slows a bit for you and me both!
