I've been learning new skills and making new friends, finding things out about myself that I might never have known otherwise. My new full time job is at a place where they appreciate my baking and tell me so frequently. My part time job is working in the garden department of a big box store, something I'd always wanted to do. I have found out that I know much more about plants than I thought I did, and that working at a big box store is not so much fun.
I have a lot of irons in the fire for the future, so wish me well! In the meantime, there's a lot to do around here. I've got the blooming leaf scarf #2 going still, and some new knitting projects going on. I've gotten a big donation from a friend--see today's Loomy Tunes post--that's begging for attention. And as you can see from the rose at the top, the garden is going strong. Peonies are popping, tomatoes are trying to set blossoms in spite of the never-ending rain and chilliness, and echinacea are threatening to take over the front flower beds. Hollyhocks look like they might achieve their full potential this year, and the roses can't help themselves!

And I will leave you with samples of my new baking adventure. It's only cupcakes, but it's fun and happy and relaxing, and I get paid for it. What more can a girl ask?
