This is what I looked like after spending approximately 1 hour in the kitchen making 2 pies. Yes, by the way. I do feel the need to wear rubber boots when I bake. I’m a messy baker.
My kitchen was covered in flour, I managed to slop pumpkin all over the stove and got gunk in my counter grout. There’s a lot of gunk in my grout.
Who cares, right?! Bake, messy baker, bake! That’s what I thought. Baking should be fun and carefree and therefore messy. Throw caution to the wind. As I was grinning at my mess and wiping flour on my jeans instead of the tea towel right beside me, I got a phone call.
“Hi, is this Karen?”
“Yes, this is Karen.”
“Hi, Karen! This is Kelly from The Steven & Chris Show … we’d like to come and tape a segment at your house the day after tomorrow. Isn’t that GREAT?!”.
“That’s FANTASTIC KELLY! Thanks!”
And just like that, me and my messy kitchen were in freak out mode. This was the Style at Home fiasco all over again. Do these people not plan things in advance?? I’m going to call one of them one day and say HEY! I’m coming over tomorrow to take pictures of your whole house to be published in/on some sort of national thingamajig. Hurry up and clean up the cat barf sucker!
Regardless, it’s VERY exciting to be a part of The Steven & Chris Show! Having to get ready for it will be made all the more exciting by the fact that I’m having 15 people over for Thanksgiving dinner a day later (no … I am STILL not making homemade cranberry sauce, so suck it).
We’ll be taping my segment for the show in my house all of Friday, plus I’ll be doing an in studio piece with them next week. I’ll let you know when the actual show is going to air in Canada and the U.S. Probably around October 21st.
It’s an exciting time for The Art of Doing Stuff, with all kinds of things happening. All thanks to you! I don’t know of another small blog like mine that gets so many people commenting and interacting. I don’t delude myself into thinking that has anything to do with me. O.K. it has a little to do with me, but mainly it has to do with the site’s fans. That’d be you by the way.
So thanks to all of you for helping to make this site a success. For you I am thankful.
Wish me luck this weekend, and I hope all of my fellow Canadians have a fantastic Thanksgiving and everyone else has a luxuriously relaxing weekend, filled with long walks, a bit of music and family.
And just to make me feel better … maybe a film crew.
