Busy Week

Can't believe it's already Friday....where did the week go? Monday started off with the youngest son's Confirmation at church. A wonderful group of about 25 kids. Of course, I forgot the camera. Daughter Jenn, the bakery owner, made cakes for the celebration. Oh yummy...coconut cake, choco cake with custard filling, and yellow with lemon filling. I could have eaten a piece of each.

I've been on a Spring Cleaning run this week. After owning a store for the last 15 years, things were just a lil unorganized. So can you believe it....I cleaned out every cupboard in the house. Wow did that make me feel better. I have one still full of stuff to get rid of on Ebay. But man does that feel good!!!!

Yesterday I tackled the garden shed. Had the kids move cabinets that were over my after surgery 15-lb weight limit. I have a lil more to do but it's close. Next I'm on to my lil' cottage where I house my mail order company. Not too much to do there because it's filled with boxes of goodies headed to the Farmgirl show in Spokane in June.

I have to share a few photos of my crazy girls and there friends. The girls and their younger brother are in the school musical next week. Practices everyday. They've been getting home between 9:30 and 10:00 every nite. I think it's starting to take it's toll. I think this was a way to blow off some steam and push the buttons of there favorite librarian at school. Yes...they have a favorite librarian. They will admit they are true NERDS!!!!

Have a great weekend and hope you enjoy the pics.

Wonderful Thoughts

I wish I could take of a picture of all the things swirling in my head. Being housebound for the last week has caused major insomnia. My head is filled with thoughts and ideas of things to come.

As I start preparing for the Farmchick show, I feel like I'm going in 100 different directions. Which project do I start first. Okay start project #2 while #1 is drying. Get distracted.....start project #3. I'm sure people understand where I am coming from. Do I start my website before the show? Promote it while I'm there. Or do I focus on tons of projects???? WOW....feeling a lil overwhelmed. Could be why I didn't get to sleep until 3am this morning. Woke up running to the craft room before the ideas I've dreamed about are gone from my head. I guess I better start leaving that journal by my bed...maybe I could sleep better.

This last week I've cruised the blog sites. Boy there is wonderful stuff out there. Could be the cause of all this things swirling in my head.

I'm off to spend the day with my Mom. Going to take in a few lil antique stores, the fabric store, and a couple specialty shops. I'm sure I'll find more inspiration there too.

Have a wonderful day!!!!!! My new world is just beginning.

Body Shocker

Four days since my hysterectomy and my body is starting to feel somewhat normal again. Most of the pain is gone. I'm really trying to take it easy but if anyone knows me, I don't sit around too much. Being housebound is a new task for me.

Spent the day yesterday in my craft room. Started working on some projects to take to the Farmchick show in Spokane. But as normal, didn't have all the things I needed. Hopefully I'll get to town next week. My booth will be filled with antiques and I'm trying to get a few handmades done to add some ambiance.

My house is smelling wonderful!!!!!!!!! I got lots of pretty flowers from my family. They definitely brighten my spirits.

I'll check in later, maybe with some peeks of projects.

Take care!!!
