These cookies were so easy to make that they really didn’t deserve their own post.
But they’re still super cute. They tasted like those cookies you buy in a tube! But without having to pop that scary top! I used the Taste of Home recipe for Drop Sugar Cookies. I dipped a few in chocolate because I knew Kevin James would like that.
For myself — I liked them with ice cream.
Actually half that cookie went to Pippa. I’m really not that much of a cookie person. I tried to get Kevin to have an ice cream cookie sandwich, but he passed on it! Weirdo!
I took Pippa Cordelia for a little shorter run today after all her plopping in the shade action yesterday – we covered about 3 miles. Apparently I didn’t wear her out ENOUGH today because while I was showering, she felt the need to drop her tennis ball in for me to throw. That’s just desperate.
Today was the day that I decided Pippa’s stitches were healed enough that I could try picking her up. She DIDN’T SQUIRM A BIT! Isn’t that crazy? My little cutie has complete confidence in me. She’s seen my burpee muscles!! Lol.
One of the perks of meetings with new clients is that I’m not in pjs when Kevin gets home from work. My prospective piano parent didn’t actually show up for her meeting tonight, but instead she called to schedule a first lesson. Better yet! I also got two additional adult students + another elementary student + 2 possible elementary students just today!! Business is rolling in now that school is starting, and I’m elated. I think I’m going to have enough adult students for them to have their own “recitals.” I’m envisioning Schubert living room sessions!!
Business to-do list:
- studio bulletin board
- business cards <— I can’t believe those aren’t done yet
- Composer of the Month Spotify playlist
- client spreadsheet
- piano lamp
- additional seating for parents
- I need a clock because I hate for lessons to end!
- what to do to with the dogs during lessons
- read every single biz ladies post on D*S
Today when I had the dogs locked up, they ate my mascara!!! My one piece of makeup, and they destroyed it. I don’t even know who to blame because I came in and they each had one end in their mouth. I never thought to hide that when I was dogproofing! Today I got Paypal set up for my website which was a little tricky, but I’ve already had parents asking me to pay with credit card so I’m glad I got it done. I also worked on several additional social networking strategies. Those things are time sucks, but they are working!!!!
Finally, a blogger using paint color samples for their intended purpose. Over the weekend the living room is going to be vanilla ice creamed and the dining room is going to be perfect peached! I can’t wait! Finally, I own my own home and get to paint rooms colors like pink and orange!
What color would you most like to paint a room? I really want a pink kitchen. But I just don’t think it’s going to happen with those green countertops. BOO!!!!
What’s the most exciting thing on you to-do list this weekend? Everything for the piano studio! Best job ever. I hope it keeps going so well.
Do you have a business card? Not yet… I really should!!! I’m just indecisive and take forever to decide on things.
