Well, another crazy week has come and gone! I was actually convinced that at the end of the week I’d have a ton of downtime but whenever that happens, I overbook myself with work to do. That is one of the problems with running a business, there is always more work to be done. Hopefully I’ll finish the interviewing process soon so that I have another person to help out!
This past week involved regular orders but also cookies for more ice cream sandwiches AND holiday (as in Christmas) samples! There was even some pumpkin baking and I am very excited that I’ll have a brand new pumpkin product in time for the fall. Next week will be more of the same but I am scheduled to do some judging at the International Chocolate Awards, how fun is that?!
In terms of life, sometimes it is really difficult to find a work-life balance. I know that most people struggle with that, especially those that do some of their working from home. In the winter it bothers me less because all I want to do is stay in and hibernate anyway. Now that the summer has started, I want to be out and about with friends. I think I need to find a way to be more efficient so that I can make that happen.
Oh, and if you can believe it, I’ll FINALLY have a new recipe to share this coming week!
As always, here are some highlights from the past week:
