I've had the most challenging couple of days at work. At the moment, the cafe is a bit of a "fustercluck" and I am feeling frazzled and overwhelmed. In these dark days, my most successful stress relief techniques revolve around cute animals. After one particularly disappointing work day, I went to a friends house for a cook out and we all had the extreme pleasure of playing with six frisky kittens! After I nibbled a couple kitty ears, I felt much better. (Photos from the Cat Party are here.)
I am doing my best to stay happy during the process of leaving my job at the bakery and plunging myself headlong into the cafe. Today's cure for the horror of spilling half a gallon of steamed milk all over myself and the brick floor three times in a row (Seriously, I can't believe it either! The steam wand is truly ferocious.) was a fresh sprinkle-encrusted donut and some seagull watching.
I think I'll be able to pull through with a steady supply of bunny kisses and deep breaths.
