Hi all, I know it has been an age since I have really chimed in here but I have been overwhelmingly busy.
First off, the Strawberry Music Festival in which I worked at a food booth, was a resounding success. Crowds of hungry people lined up to be fed. Lots of great people. No matter how long the lines were and we invariably messed up some orders, most everyone was kind and patient. We only had one crab that I know of, and we cheerfully refunded their money despite their complaint being no ones fault but their own.
The only downside of the entire weekend was it has taken me nearly 4 days to recover my energy, we worked long hours and slept little so I am having to make up for it this week.
Now on to the really good news….We were able to buy our little house out of foreclosure this week.
It was down to the wire but the bank postponed putting it up for auction when we informed them that we were in the process of getting rid of some business equipment and we would be able to catch up the house when we got paid for it.
The check came yesterday. So we get to keep it and don’t have to move. Sometimes I think it was the thought of moving again that depressed me more than actually losing the house.
So now it is time to dig in and get ready for winter (booooo, I don’t like winter), stockpile our firewood, get our back deck treated to preserve it better and winterize my garden. (though that will be a month or two away since it is still blooming profusely)
Now I need to get back to painting, I have several orders to fulfill and I want to restock my website with ready to go signs, I am nearly sold out.
enjoy your Friday!
