A Break

I'll be the 1st to admit that it's nice to take a break after two consecutive weeks/weekends of caking. Having a hobby such as this is so bittersweet. I love it, I really do, but after spending countless hours preparing, thrashing my kitchen, not sleeping and ignoring my family, I'm exhausted and want nothing to do with it.
A brief, cake-free break rejuvinates me for my next go-round. You know, after I've missed it for a while.
I honestly don't have much planned right now, so I'll be doing more leisurely baking. Seasonal cookies for the holidays. I'd like to get a little better with iced sugar cookies because they make such great gifts. But honestly those take almost as much time as cakes. Well, it is different. Different materials and prep time, and ultimately, different results.
Yes, I definitely see sugar cookies. And maybe I'll organize my cupboard and cake kit. It's long overdue.
Until next time...
Forgive my rambling, it's NaBloPoMo.

I hear you. Luckily I don't have any kids yet and my husband works with me in the kitchen. But when there are dust bunnies all over the house and the bathrooms haven't been cleaned in two weeks you know it's time to slow down with he baking and take a breather.
Can't wait to see your cookies!!
