Good Stuff but Little Time


In all of my years of blogging
I have never been at such a loss 
for what to post.

I just have so much on the brain
and none of it seems like it would 
interest you.

The mountain posts appear to be 
done for reasons I'll keep to 
myself....sorry.

I looked outside at Oliver yesterday
and thought he was looking pretty 
leisurely and decided to go 
bug him for a picture.

Such a life this kitty has.
Tough, I tell you!

It is Fair time.
This is Chelsea's brownie
entry this year.
They are Mocha Oreo Brownies.
Amazing!!!


We'll try to remember to share
the recipe later.
But there is one more fair to 
enter them in.
The judges vote today
in our local fair.



This is the beginning of a very
busy candle season. I'm trying to get
my Etsy shop loaded up with items so that
during the Christmas Shopping Season it will
have enough to last while I am up to my
ears in fund raiser orders.


This was fun yesterday....
a custom order,
in baby powder scent,
for baby shower favors.
 

I sometimes feel that my brain is so consumed with 
candles and that you will get as tired of it as 
my family sometimes does.
So...I'll try hard to keep most candle stuff 
on the Candle Blog....but no promises.

On a different subject,
today is Chelsea's first day as
Review Teacher at a local Bible Study.
She has worked with the children for the 
past two years and has been promoted
this year.  It is a bold move for my shy
girl but one that will be very good for her.
We are excited!!
She is excited (and nervous) too.
But she loves the children and they love her.
It will all be good.

I have times like this where I have tons going on and nothing to really say about it!

All the best to Chelsea with those incredible looking brownies and with the children!

You're right, there has to be some space left in the brain for thoughts to come. When you're on overload, as you appear to be now, it's a challenge. Keep a notebook near your desk and jot down ideas as they come. I find it handy. Of course, it's empty much of the time just like my head. ☺

Becky, many blessings to Chelsea on her first day. The brownies are so delicious looking.

It is good to be passionate about what you are doing. That is a blessing, sweet girl.

I found your blog during a hop & thanks for having me. I enjoyed looking through a couple of your blogs. I will check out your shop here in a bit as I looooove candles. I'm having a GIVEAWAY if you would to enter. Hugs. tammy

You know I go through this a lot-I think of something to post but have no time...or have some time but can't think of anything remotely interesting. Sigh.

But! You managed to overcome it!

Chelsea's brownies look fantastic. I hope she wins.

I love your candle pics, too. What a great idea for a shower favor!

Praying all goes well for Chelsea in her new job at Bible Study.

Have a great day!

Me, too, Becky. Been in blogging doldrums lately. Just too much other stuff going on!

I can smell those Brownies from here - they look heavenly. I hope we have chocolate in heaven!

I'm sure Chelsea'll do great at the Bible Study. Good for her for stretching herself. She'll do some growing for it and the Lord blesses our efforts!

Those brownies looks good! You'll have to let us know how she does! Sooo how does one become a taste testing judge at one of these fairs? Seems like the job for me! =)
