Yesterday i made a cutting board(mahogany) to give to my good neighbour Hector, he is always helping us with our garden and every little or big thing that he can, so i have been thinking on giving him something, and as i finished i noticed that a simple table will not do, so i made this nice and very tasty( as my wife’s honest opinion) challah bread, my wife put a nice cloth and ribbon and made it look nicer and took it to him.

this idea we got it from one of you guys, sadly i cant remember who, to give him/her thanks for such a nice idea.

he wasn’t home when Carmen took it but his wife and a bunch of ladies were there and were quite impressed by the gift. some eve commented on how they would like to have a husband who do the baking :)

I just ate, but looking at that beautiful loaf makes me hungry!

Nicely done, Nayo! I am one of the fortune ones. My hubby is a great chef and baker (so glad one of us is)! Is the board narrower at the handle end or is that a camera angle thing? Wonder if Hector got any of that yummy looking loaf? How did your last show turn out? Thanks for sharing.

yes Candy, its narrower, i just did not want to do a normal one, as we have them here.

and about the craft show, ummm, not much to talk about it, we sold very little and then you have the expenses, we barely cover those, but we lost 3 days of making something in the shop so its another part of the equation. we have to travel one day to get there, on day in the market and one day returning home.

but we have to try, and that’s the nature of the business. and we will keep trying.

thanks for asking.

Sorry to hear that, Nayo. Glad you were able to cover expenses. Time lost in the shop is hard. You will make it up. You and your family do great work.

-- God bless, Candy
