Jay Silver’s Cafe


Today at lunch time my sister, Sylvie, and I put together a walk-in restaurant lunch for our siblings!  Our little cafe was called Jay Silver’s (a mash-up between both of our names, kind of). 🙂


We served turkey sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken soup, biscuits, fresh squeezed lemonade, and cookies that were served right out of the oven!


It was a lot of fun!  We use to do this quite often, Susanna, Skylar and I.  Today Sylvie was the waitress and sandwich maker and I was the “head chef”. 🙂



I used the Toll House/Nestle cookie recipe which is on the back of the chocolate chip bag, but I used our good wheat and sugar and I also put chocolate chips AND white chocolate chips.  They tasted so good!


Sylvie, Skylar, Esme and I went to the park today.  Skylar and I brought our roller blades and the girls brought their bikes.  It was very nice to get outside especially on such a nice day like today!  It wasn’t too cold, but cold enough to bring scarves and hats and jackets!

The past three days Sylvie has had her hair curled.  The first day she curled it with a flat iron, the second day with sponge curlers, and the third day with socks!  Yes…she tied socks in her hair, clean ones that it.

Here’s her hair with the flat iron.  Sarah came over and practiced hair stuff on all of our hair, except mine since, as some of you know I don’t have much right now!


(Yay!  Awkward picture!  I’m actually trying to grow it out a bit longer.  Right now it’s longer then it is in that picture, but not much.)


Esme’s hair, which is already naturally curly, looked beautiful!


Here’s Sylvie’s hair with sponge curlers (sorry for the bad picture quality!)


And here it is after being wrapped up in socks! 😀


I personally like how this worked out the best.  It was SO simple and worked really well, especially if your hair holds a curl.  It probably turned out so good because her hair was curled the two days before!  I had fun wrapping her hair in socks too (and I made that hair bow which I shared in a post from March, 2013).

I also played around with heated curlers on Skylar’s hair and it looked beautiful!  I’ve just turned into quite the stylist! 🙂  Probably because I’m missing having longer hair and can’t do curls and braids, etc, on my own hair *sigh*.


So, all in all, today was a very good day.  I didn’t have high hopes for today just because I felt bogged down and tired and all that, but it was really fun to “own” a restaurant for a while then go to the park and then come home to cookies and a nice cup of tea; I love tea! 🙂

I hope you all are having a great January so far seeing that its already one week into the month!  I’ve got to get cracking on some things!  Well, God bless the rest of this week and stay warm and safe!  Write soon…
