Feeling kind of busy around here. A lot of it my own making, but I just have to hang on for a few more weeks until things settle down.
I had a visit with my rescue kitty buddy Mister Boo this weekend! House/pet sitting and I got to love on him. One good thing about where we live now is that there are fewer strays.
I spent a lot of time this weekend prepping for the open house. It’s going to be a long weekend. The show runs Fri- Sat – Sun from 10 am to 5pm each day. At least I get Thursday off this week, hopefully. Work will probably be spotty this week anyway with a lot of doctors taking the week off.
My soaps ready to go:
Here is the link to my new business: Savonology . It still needs a little tweaking. I keep taking pictures of the soap hoping to make them better. A lot of time spent boxing up the soaps and putting labels on them. I am a little nervous for the show because it has been so long since I have done one, plus being a shy person, talking to people for 3 whole days is exhausting 🙂
We still were able to squeak in a ride this weekend. It was 48 degrees on Sunday, but it felt colder because it was breezy and cloudy. Brrr….
No matter how busy we get, exercise is always fit in there. You never regret the time you make for your workouts.
More randomness – the pileated woodpecker visited again. He must have a nest nearby because he circuits around to our yard periodically:
These birds are surprising big, too.
With all that I have going on, I am trying really hard to limit my projects I accumulate. When I get really busy, there are things that take a back seat, like practicing my guitar and working on my trunks. Somewhat successful on that front until today when a trunk came across my path and the I couldn’t resist the price. I had seen this on my vintage list and resisted, but then the price dropped to 25 dollars. I can only resist so much:
It’s not a really big trunk like some of my others, which is nice. Plus it has this cool stamped metal underneath the paint.
The deal sealer? It doesn’t smell on the inside LOL! I think John is just resigned to me doing all this stuff because he certainly is not able to stop me 😀 I do have enough to keep me busy for about 5 years, though.
Thanksgiving this Thursday and my goal is not to treat this like a whole holiday week withthe eating. It’s easy for me to say ‘what the heck, it’s a holiday’ starting on Monday, which makes it all the more difficult to get back on track afterward. So, that’s my focus.
