Thankful Thursday #103: busy-ness

Posted on

I usually can’t tolerate being busy for very long, it really starts to get to me and after a while I need a day of nothing–plan nothing, do nothing.

However, lately I’ve been thankful for how busy I am because it helps keep my mind off of things I don’t want to think about. I haven’t mentioned it before, but I started selling cupcakes almost two months ago and I’m doing really well with it, though I’m still hesitant to say I’m officially “in business.” As long as I can convince myself it’s a casual thing, it’s not stressing me like selling cakes used to.  I’ve already gone through 500 cupcake liners and started on another bulk package, so I’m definitely keeping busy with my not-official-yet second job.

Also, friends we haven’t seen in years invited us over for dinner (Kathy and her husband were there too!) and it was really nice to reconnect with all of them and do something social since I’m usually Miss Hermit Crab all up in my shell/house and never wanting to leave.  I was really excited to meet their new baby and I even got to feed and burp him.  After burping, he rested his head against my cheek and momma snapped a photo. I could have died and gone to baby heaven. :D

My good best friend, Jaci, is in town from Texas and I will get to see her on Friday!!!!!  Yay for being busy with such good things. Praise the Lord.

About Veronica

I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.

  3. Wow, congrats on selling cupcakes! That is so cool, my coworkers are always asking me why I work where I do instead of opening a bakery. I would have no idea how to go about selling my cupcakes to people, but would love to hear about how you got started!

    Veronica – your cupcakes are beautiful. So happy that making them is going so well for you. The photo of you and the baby is just adorable! Heart-melting for me to look at it. I am always trying hard to not be busy ALL the time and I really struggle with finding a ‘slow’ day in my life too….hang in there Friend.

  5. Your cupcakes are so cute! I wish we were a wee-bit closer; I’d totally ask you to make my son’s 1st communion cake! It’s next month and I have NO IDEA where the cake is coming from!

  6. The one video of you putting together that cake is still one of my all time favorites!! You should repost it again!

    Cool about the cupcakes – that’s so exciting! Tony wants me to start selling my salsa, but I wouldn’t want it to feel like work, you know?!

    Hugs!

  10. You’re my idol! Truly! If Wichita were closer, I would love to be your baking sidekick for your cupcake venture! Good luck and lots of best wishes for that. I’m excited for you! There is a pretty successful cupcake caterer acquaintance of mine who teamed up with a restaurant in a hip part of town. They allow here to deliver her cupcakes there for pick ups. Just an idea……..

  15. You and that baby–SO CUTE! And do you sell cupcakes locally only, or is there a way to ship them? =) (I wouldn’t mind placing an order for some of those beauties, is what I’m sayin’)
    Thinking of you and praying for you!!

  16. Your cupcakes look awesome, glad to hear that selling them is going great. My husband and close friends urge me to start selling baked goods but like you, I sometimes like my times of not doing squat, so I’m almost afraid of doing well for fear that I may never have a lazy weekend again, lol. Best of luck to you and cute pic of you and the baby!
