My very brief StayCation (stay-at-home vacation) is nearing it’s end. It’s been five days since my last day of work at NCO, and tomorrow I shall start at a new company. It will be a whole new adventure, I bet.
Though I have not had to go to work for the past four/five days, I’ve been busy.
- It was a busy week at Between the Covers with all the link opportunities thrown its way. Thank you! 🙂
- I’ve been filling orders for the yummy Tres Leches Cake. Thank you for our loyal customers!
- We trooped to the NBI to get clearance (this was an adventure in itself), as part of my pre-employment requirements.
- Checked out RM Boxes which supplies all packaging needs for baked goodies! We picked up some boxes for the cake, and also for cupcakes which I hope to be selling soon. There are truffles orders but the chocolate melting gods haven’t been on my side lately so I took a few days’ rest there. This afternoon I’ll be making a batch. 🙂
Other than that, I’ve been sleeping, blogging, browsing… and not much in between. Sleep pattern’s been messed up though and I hardly sleep more than 3-4 hours at a time, which probably caused a minor pimple breakout (yes, so sad) that I hope will clear out soon. It came at the wrong time, imagine first impressions tomorrow? Haha. 🙂
I’ve learned a few things about my small business in the past few days:
- List your stocks lest you realize your missing a vital ingredient at midnight. I realized we were short 1 can of evaporated milk at midnight last night. Good things, there’s a substitute for it, and it didn’t sacrifice quality and taste.
- List your equipment/baking tools etc. In our trip to RM Boxes on Friday, we ended up getting cake boxes that were a size too big for our actual round cakes. As it turned out I remembered the size of the cake board incorrectly. I swear I remember buying size 10 boards, but these are actually only size 9. It’s not a costly mistake as we can still use the boxes and no one will complain, but a size smaller would be perfect.
- Don’t wait until your nearly sleepy before you start working, this is true for whatever time of day. 🙂
Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. For digital scrapbookers, here’s a blog train fully packed with wonderful goodies, sponsored by the DigiScrap Addicts (DSA). I downloaded sooooo many of the goodies up for grabs, I only hope I can get to use them in the next decade! 😉
Happiness and Love, love, love! 🙂
