Hot AND Cold Running Water!

It WAS a bit of a job getting to the greenhouse to get the garden hose (then going back to get another hose when one wasn’t long enough), and then shovelling down through the snow to the outside water tap on the house. But it was worth the effort – we now have a temporary water connection to the bakery from the house, via garden hose, and all the plumbing is functioning and leak-free!  Now Tim can really fill his boots with tea. And I can wash paint brushes without walking back to the house (but wait, there isn’t really much call for washing paint brushes anymore – everything is painted!!).

Almost more exciting than running water are all the new signs we now have:

The new bakery sign. I LOVE it, I hope you all do, too!

Our sandwich board sign for the corner of our road and the highway. (And cupboard doors WITH knobs).

The Bread Peddler rubber stamp - sure to be the most coveted job at the bakery.

The bakery's nerve centre. This is where the high-powered computer will be, computing all the logarithms necessary for baking bread. Either that, or I'll scratch a few things down on a grocery list once and a while.

Yes, those are still very large snowbanks. Yes, it IS April 15.

  1. Wow, Wow, WOW! Love the stamp on the brown paper bags, and all the rest of the signage too. That is the happiest looking bread peddler I know, thus far. The bike theme is coming along so gloriously. ( I know Tim, I was a bit slow to respond this time).

  2. Wow! Kate! Ayeee-ayeee-ayeeeeeeee!

    You have a bakery! I am so looking forward to seeing it some time soon! I am also scheming about getting the great to the McLeese Lake contingent.

    you are one fascinating individual!

    loves

  3. It sure is coming along you two! It’s amazing what two driven and beautiful people (partners) can do. I can’t wait to see it all come to fruition for you – and not to forget the delicious bread that I plan on getting my hands on! You have a McLeese Lake contingent indeed, ;).
