Hot Dogs and Sculpey Clay

In this crazy world where we are living, it's the little things that make a difference! 
This weekend, our sales manager and friend, Jeff, has brought on a new feature: Hot Dogs!

Generally on the weekends we pack a sack lunch so the galley workers get a bit of a break.  Bread, cheese, ham, pb & j are the standards. 

But Jeff has decided to get wild and crazy and start offering another option! 

This afternoon Dan and I worked the ship shop and café - I rang up the totals for drinks, chips, candy bars, and the hot dogs, while Dan operated the hot dog grilling machine.

These 50¢ treats were a hit.  Anticipating selling 50 yesterday and 50 today, Jeff bought 100 of them, and organized with a local store for the delivery of hot dog buns.  However, they sold out of 100 in the first fifteen minutes yesterday!  He restocked the supply yesterday and we sold about 120 of them this lunchtime. 

Variety is nice!

While we were working the cafe, cousin Emily was wowing the girls with her Sculpey clay talents.  She had brought some as a gift to Kylie & Savannah upon her arrival last week, and today proved to be the perfect afternoon to work on their skills.

Here are some of Kylie's creations: a frog prince, a fruit basket, some beads and a cherry pie.

Savannah has some fairies, a dolphin and some other things (too small for me to identify)

Kylie was trying to hide from the camera, but to no avail (she also has shorter hair thanks to Jillian, our new hair stylist onboard)

Cousin Emily makes a beautiful dolphin sculpture as well- though hard to see the details here. :)

Savannah with her new big girl teeth growing in (and hopefully straightening out??) and her four missing teeth around the middle ones- watch this smile over the next few months- it's sure to be a work in progress. :)

And good friend Debra couldn't avoid the camera either.  You don't have to look far to find Debra or other new friends near the girls.

So, here's a little look of our "normal" day off on the weekend.  We have a coffee date with the new family from Sweden in a little while and hopefully will get a hike in to the University sometime this weekend too.
