I got a gig!

Starting - oh, yesterday, lol - I'll be making baked goods and desserts for a little place called 'Stono Farms'; a wonderful little store I just found; their farm sells strawberries, blueberries, peaches, butterbeans, etc., plus they make their own 'take and bake' dishes for folks to take home. I noticed there wasn't really any dessert items, and asked the owner about it. We talked, and I took her some samples today, which went over pretty well!

I'm excited - won't be full time which I can't do, and she's giving me lots of freedom with choices, so it should be pretty fun - now if I can just keep hubbie and son away from all the goodies!
