I am usually so good at planning out my time, but this coming weekend is a major failure.
It’s fair time next week, and I have a lot of work to do. I have to prepare my three photos, and one isn’t even chosen (poll below). I also have to bake chocolate chip cookies and lemon bars. I don’t need a trial run with the lemon bars, but I do with the cookies, and I’m not sure when I’ll have time for that. All of my entries need to be turned in on Tuesday for judging on Wednesday.
Time is a problem because I am going to Stratford, Ontario, on Thursday and Friday to see two Shakespeare plays: “The Tempest” with Christopher Plummer and “As You Like It.” Stratford is about five hours away, so going there requires some time.
Also this weekend, I am attending a wedding, so that will eat up most of Saturday. Then on Sunday, I am going to the German-American Festival in Toledo, where I am also submitting a dessert, which I will have to prepare in small portions over Friday night and Saturday.
Before I can bake, I need to organize all my recipes and get all the ingredients I need, and I will need over a dozen eggs and probably a dozen sticks of butter, as well.
And now, it’s time to vote for your favorite flower photo to help me decide on my fair submission! Below you will find six photos, each with a name, and then, there is a poll below the photos, where you can vote for your favorite.
