Hi! It’s me! Lily!

And everything’s back to normal!

I’m going to school and Sabby’s baking and Dave’s, well, Daving, and Beth’s going to school too and David’s getting into trouble.  You know, the normal stuff.  The shop is doing pretty well but it’s kind of humming along – the holidays did really well, now we’re doing okay.  Sabby wants to branch off into light deli food and snacks to get some of that lunch traffic, and I think it’s a good idea but not sure we’re ready for it yet.  Besides, the baker isn’t a deli food maker, she’s a baker.  And we’re a cookie place, not a deli.

But otherwise, we’re doing well.  cat-girl has a bunch of regular clients that come around to see what she’s dressed as, and buy cookies while they’re at it.  There’s actually a webpage that popped up called “What’s she wearing today?” where every day they post a picture of her costume.  She seems to like the attention, but I wonder how good it is.  Katie seems dead set against it for herself, and I don’t blame her, but I can’t deny that cat-girl really drives business.

And what gets me is, cat-girl somehow wears a completely different costume each day.  She mixes and matches, but no two are alike.  Today she dressed like a Japanese schoolgirl maid.  I have no idea how she pulled that off, but she did.

Valentine’s day is coming up, so we certainly have to do something special for that.

But we’re doing alright.  Everyone’s getting paid, we’re building up a nice nest egg, and the employees seem to be happy.  I don’t know what else you could ask for.

Okay!!!  Marie needs walked and Beth needs brushed!!!

Love you all!!! ❤
