The most peculiar of holidays maybe but it was a great celebration at Beaches Bake Shop today. I think I baked and sold close to 300 cinnamon buns. It is like an adrenalin rush when you're in the middle of it.
Lots of swedes came for fika, many friends showed up to buy some buns and strangers got introduced to the craziness of Beaches Bake Shop. Even Sandra Bussin and Marilyn Churley came by. I had sent an e- mail to Sandra Bussin- kind of kommunfullmaktige in our area and Marilyn is the leader for the NDP's in Beaches - East York. Both these ladies are super busy right now since Canada is as well as USA, gearing up for an election later this fall. Enough politics, but it was fun that they showed up.
I think I am going to launch some kind of FIKA PAUS at the cafe. A set time when Swedes would know that they could come by to connect with other Swedes over a FIKA! What about the third Saturday of each month at 1.30pm or something.
I am having an event for SWEA on Oct.27Th. We are all going to listen to Linda Olsson's sommarprogram from 2 years ago and discuss it after. I am looking forward to it, I hope lots of people signs up.
Ok, time to shut down.....I am running Race For The Cure with a whole bunch of Beach women including Sigrid, Laura, Jojo, Rose, Chantal, Sam, Atara......the list is endless!!I love the event- always very emotional but a great togetherness for women of all ages! Next week is a new adventure at Beaches Bake Shop- it never stops, I'll get back to that later!
