It is midnight here on the east coast and I just got home from work-the restaurant was a little busier today and I am hopeful that this is an upward trend-I guess only time will tell-I never was very good at waiting games-especially the kind when you're 5 months pregnant and can't wait for this to BE OVER-hell that really was a waiting game and I didn't do well there either-of course there wasn't much I could do about that-well anyway I hope the trend is upward-A funny thing happened tonight-well not really a funny ha ha thing-A guy that worked for me for a loooong time (15 yrs), a guy that I treated like my own son, helped his family through a lot of tough times, you get the picture-left to start his own restaurant-I told him it was very different working in a restaurant than owning and operating one on your own-you are then responsible for the day to day workings and problems-he didn't believe me and said he had to try and help his son open their own restaurant-I could understand how he felt so I wished him well-after he opened his restaurant I found out he was taking pictures of all of my recipes with his cell phone and when I saw the menu he had on line is was as if he copied my menu using all of my stuff right down to the exact way he worded the menu options-well I was livid and wanted to scratch his eyes out and feed them to the vultures(we don't have vultures here)anyway I was MAD-but there was nothing I could do but pray karma would visit him-I waited 2 long years and then it happened-HE WENT OUT OF BUSINESS-lost his shirt and is in deep debt-getting back to the not so funny thing that happened-my husband said that he wouldn't be surprised if(let's call him Jack)showed up at the back door and asked for his job back-well let me tell you I said I couldn't believe JACK would have the BALLS to do that-well the not so funny thing is that JACK the jackass showed up at the back door of the restaurant tonight and asked for his job back-fortunately I was not there(I was taking care of customers in the dinning room) so he spoke to my son-now I have to decide if I want to give him another chance(to shaft me again) or tell him to hit the road-I don't know-I have always been a pushover for a sad story-always felt the need to help people-maybe he just made a mistake and didn't think about what he was doing and then again maybe he is just a THIEF-my mother used to say "once burnt twice cautious" or "don't trust a fox in the chicken coop"-anyway I can't trust him-so that's the answer-HIT THE ROAD for him. On a happier note I finished the new page for my website   www.Cynthiaandcolimited.com   the page is the
Hats For Cats page-now I will be able to sell the hats on the etsy store(hopefully) www.Cynthiaandcolimited.com 
I am tired now and I still have to update the Etsy store with a few new hats and I also have to put a post on my facebook page         www.facebook.com/Cynthiaandcolimited

So good night for now and let's see what new and EXCITING thing tomorrow brings-later Cynthia

A Prayer

Here I am again-It's Midnight and I just got home-the restaurant wasn't very busy today-It has been a bad year for restaurants-every one is down in the numbers-big chain restaurants are closing sites, retail is very iffy to say the least but at least we have a business, a place to live and our lives-the people in the south who have just gone through the worst times of their lives-well what can words do now-how can we pick them up and restore their belief in their world-about the only thing(and the most important one)


  1. is Prayer-prayers to the lord to help them carry this burden and some how come out of it and be stronger-I will pray the Lord will give them strength and that through the many donations from good and caring people will bring them home safely. Ok enough of this sadness-It has turned hot and humid-I guess that comes from the hurricane but I also heard on the telli that their is snow in the north west-what extreme ends of the scale-I finished working on my website-I added a new page-Hats For Cats by Isadora-I put a radio button on the page and with a click of your finger on the mouse and you will be transported to the Etsy store to see what is new and now for sale-that's right-you can buy one of the most beautiful hats for your(or a friends)precious baby Kitty-Let me know what you think about the new line-and come and visit me at the Morristown Armory on October 20-22-I don't have my booth number as of yet but as soon as I do I will put it on my show page-I'm doing a couple of show in New England and will post the information as soon as I have it. I'll say GoodNight for now.

It's been a loooong day-I did get a lot accomplished but it's still been long. I first did the inventory for my restaurant so I would know what I had to get at Restaurant Depot-then I made the menu for the special for the weekend and made the recipe cards for the kitchen cooks-then I took 103 photos (yes 103) of the new Hats For Cats Store on Etsy-I had to crop them all and then upload 3 new ones for the website-

I was recently looking at a bag of holiday candy-you know the kind that are all shiny like glass but are filled with chocolate-anyway the colors were so great that I decided to see if some of the beads I had would be a match-and YES they were-so I created these--have a look-the red one makes me think of red hots and the cinnamon and cherry flavor-the blue one reminds me of mint and it is such a cool color while the pink one-well that one is just so pretty-it reminds me of the strength of women even when faced with a devastating medical event or anything for that matter-I truly love the way the colors play off each other-When I made these I used a magnetic clasp which makes it very easy to put on and take off- take a look and let me know what you think-do you like the color combinations-what is your favorite color and why-I love to listen to the comments and get a feel of just what my fans like-thanks for looking and if you get a chance please like my face book  page www.facebook.com/Cynthiaandcolimited/        --thank you!
