I posted about the youth auction last year. How fast the time goes by.
One of our girls made caramel brownies. She made 2 batches so she could cut a piece and people could see the caramel layer. This recipe is divine!
I made a Dr. Suess quilt for it. I bought enough material so I can make another one for one of my grandkids (probably another 7 years before I have one but you can never be too prepared. haha)
Another one of our girls made Mississippi Mud Cake! Takes me back to my childhood and my grandmother.
Our oldest daughter, while not going to camp and needing funds, contributed a tin of cards. Since the cards were in the tin, this paper was out to show bidders what they were getting. Several Paper Pumpkin cards in this tin.
Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
