How was your week?
Mine felt like it rushed by, and it was spent doing things like this:
When you get to that fork in the road...
Mr. Kitchen Hand had requested a cake to farewell two colleagues going in different directions. This is a sign for a nun crossing (inside joke, too long to explain, not all that funny).

Have a great weekend!
