Okay...so this blog is about cookies, confections...and confessions. Oh confessions...not something that is always so easy to own up to...but so, so necessary for inner cookie peace. So here we go...the deepest, darkest secrets of SweetFace Cookies.
I avoid clocks when creating. Seriously. Not to be confused with keeping track of time...now that I do. I say I avoid clocks because the majority of my work happens between the hours of 10pm and 4am. After the clock strikes midnight it gets pretty pointless to look at the clock since you know you aren't going to sleep anytime soon. Now don't get me wrong...I work during the day...pretty much constantly...but during the daylight hours I am a woman wearing many hats...wife, momma, cook, pretend laundry woman (thank heavens for the blessed wrinkle release feature on the dryer), snack maker, chauffeur, cell phone delivery girl, nanny...well, you get the idea! It's the hooty owl hours that are the un-interrupted work hours. Just me, my piping bag and the sound of the june bugs hitting the kitchen windows desperately seeking the only light on in the neighborhood. It's not until the 2am showing of Cupcake Wars goes off and the 3am showing of Law and Order SVU comes on that I am even aware that it is now 3am and Cinderella's carriage has not only turned back into a pumpkin but is now being harvested for pumpkin pie!! As I stare down at the cookies I am working on I realize that if I work just two more wee hours I could actually pour my hubby his very first cup of coffee before his school day starts! So there it is...I stay up late. My family gets on to me about it...quite often actually...but this is who I am and this is what I do....and as hard as it gets sometimes when I hear the faint snores of my guys during the night...I LOVE getting to create cookies!! Whether it is 2pm or 2am...I am the cookie lady.
See you tomorrow for Confession #2!!
