I couldn't resist doing at least one cupcake this morning to see how the caulking would work. I love it! This is it!
Here's the new caulked frosting version next to the former glitter frontrunner. No comparison. :)
I have to manually kind of paint on the caulking and let that dry and then add the dots of the many colored Stickles. Then I used a toothpick to add the metallic gold acrylic paint for the candle flame--which wasn't quite dry in these pictures due to the overanxious photographer--LOL!
I know. I know. I have just made much more work for myself. But I really like these so much better. Now I have to find out if I can run them thru the Cuttlebug after they are already decorated or if I should cut them all out beforehand. ;)
This is what it looked like over in the field yesterday.
They are definitely laying pipe and have staked out an area. Looks like they're building something, for sure. We're wondering if maybe they are even adding to our dead end road?
And this summer is not going to be quiet for another reason. We have never had this big of a "gang" of young males in the building.
A few of them drive. I've seen 5-6 of them hanging around cars (seem to be fixated on cars) with one of them standing in the open driver's door before.
One of the nights Dagan and Leah were here there were maybe half a dozen young guys hanging around a sports car in the parking lot and the police came and talked to them. I think the one young guy was the owner or his parents owned the car? Somebody must have called the police because they don't show up here unless they've been called. Never do drive thrus of our parking lot or anything like that.
This car they were all gathered around last night was sure not a fancy new one being shown off, by any means. But I counted 16 teenage boys plus the one younger boy who seemed to be with his big brother. I thought there were maybe 7 or 8 of them (we've never had that many) but here there are twice as many--from one year to the next? Kind of odd. We usually get younger families with smaller kids and babies, actually. Just a curious thing.
I have never seen them misbehave. They could all be very nice young men. But if somebody was already calling the police when they saw half a dozen of them hanging out in the parking lot...this huge group might be in for some harassment. I hope not. Unless they do something wrong, they should be given the benefit of the doubt, right?
My only personal trepidation is due to the fact that I never trust any human beings in numbers--ROFL! I have a deep instinctive avoidance of mob mentality. I hope whoever the "leaders" are in this group that they have good heads on their shoulders. I send them positive energy. :):)
Anyways, it is the end of the week. Leah and I plan to hit Tochi's tomorrow morning.
Hopefully I won't forget and I'll be back this weekend with pictures of the inside of Tochi's. Supposed to be a gorgeous day today and get close to 70! Awesome!
Have a great Friday!!
