The day before the last day...

     So tomorrow is my last day the shop will be open for a little while.  I really did not want to close it down at all but life comes at you and there is nothing you can really do but go with the flow.  My husband will be having a total knee replacement and I will be taking care of him.  My mother will be having another eye surgery...but I think that is in Sept. and I will be taking care of her as well.  I sit here and know that I will be in here more than perhaps I have been lately.  
     There is a lot to do to get ready for fall.  I will be receiving new handcrafts and will have to get them all entered into the computer, tagged and displayed.  I have to clean out behind the counter and re-organize the work area... get the bags tagged and ready, print up more haymakers bucks and so on!  So even though this is the day before the last day...it is the beginning of many things for the next month!!!  I will not be idle, and if anyone needs anything, just give the shop a ding a ling.  
     I have posted signs on the front windows and the side door...I am sending out over 600 postcards to let everyone know my agenda and that is the best I can do.  I think that the Good Lord will take care of me and Bless me and the shop this fall.  I am thrilled at how this year has gone so far, the people I have met, the new adventures I have taken on....and I look forward to next year!!!   


Thank you to everyone that has been a part of my life...

This is the lil katydid that was visiting me one evening as I worked on the computer after hours. He was clicking and then making his calling noise. I will try to post that for you as well. He seemed to be rather friendly and wanted to be close to me overlooking what I was up to. When my husband came in and I pointed him out he seemed to be a bit agitated and started diving from here to there. It was a bit creepy at that point but it was also fun to have him here.

This is how my hubby dries his work gloves!!! I think it is so cool...and funny. They always end up in different formations...pointing to the sky or saying "rock on" or I love you in sign language!
