No matter how cold hearted or irritated you are, this will make you smile (just ignore the kind of irritating people in the background):
Sorry for the rant earlier. I got to ceramics and the base for both of my glazes (Cornwall Stone) was almost gone. I needed about 10,000 grams for both of the glazes and there was only about 1,600. Since it wasn't my fault I don't have to worry about getting them done until the shipment comes in, which at absolute soonest will be next week.
I still have papers though. Which I should be working on.
I forgot until about eleven thirty that I was supposed to make cakes for Leadership and Ministry tomorrow, because we are having our love feast. So I started that about midnight. Hence I'm still up. It gives me time to do some work though. Doesn't give me too much time to sleep, which is a minor problem, but hey, you take what you can get. I can sleep next week. I really like the idea of having a week in between the last week of classes and finals. We don't have that here, but I'd whole-heartedly appreciate it if we did.
I look forward to posting the two cakes that I made. One is a mocha fudge cake- the base cake has coffee in it (1 1/4 cups!), then it's covered in mocha mousse. The other is a berries and lemon upside-down cake. A lemon cake with a mix of raspberries, black raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries baked into the bottom-top. That one is baking right now and it smells amazing. Hopefully it will taste accordingly.
Dinner today was also delightful. I roasted some butternut squash with a touch of brown sugar and raisins, encrusted bite-sized pieces of turkey with chopped pecans (which ended up being more like turkey with toasted pecans because I didn't feel like being careful stirring and knocked most of the "breading" off), and a cucumber salad topped with a drizzle of local buckwheat honey, basalmic, extra virgin olive oil, and salt and pepper. It was great!
