Antoinette's Soft Opening (Photostory)
It's early morning. Cathy and her son, Deondre have stopped in to grab breakfast before she drops him off at school and heads to work. (Initially, I had these two as brother and sister, but decided he made a better son. He's 16)
"Donuts or bagels?" (Cathy)
"Can I get a bagel, a jelly donut and a chocolate donut?" (Cathy)
"Sure. Anything to drink?" (Antoinette)
"Oh yes. Two large hot teas, please." (Cathy)
"Ma? Ma? Can you throw in one of those brownies?" (Deondre)
"Brownies are not breakfast food." (Cathy)
"I'll save it for lunch." (Deondre)
"Boy, no." (Cathy)
While Antoinette gets the order together, Cathy checks out the sweets in the display case. Cathy is wearing a shawl collar mohair sweater that I recently crocheted.
"Wow, such cute Valentine's Day treats. I may stop by later and get something." (Cathy)
"If you like, you can put in an order now, and I can have it packed and ready whenever you like." (Antoinette)
"Let me think about it, while I'm eating my breakfast." (Cathy)
"Okay. Well. that will be $4.59." (Antoinette)
Deondre's attention has turned to the lady in the corner. She's the only other customer in the bakery at the moment. She doesn't feel his stares.
Something outside the window has caught her eye as she sits with her pastry and hot tea. She has an appointment at the pediatrician's office in about an hour. This gives her plenty of time to enjoy her breakfast. She is wearing one of my most recent crocheted sweaters. She paired it with the hat I made for Dasia a while back.
Well seems like the bakery is off to a great start. I'm looking forward to seeing who else shows up today.
Antoinette has been baking her little fingers off. Here are some of the breads she has prepared for today's soft opening.
Happy Valentine's Day!
