So I stopped at the grocery store, and bought some lunch stuff, and when I got to the studio I made some ribollita, which I found over at Kayotic Kitchen.
You could smell it cooking all through the house. Yum.
We had lunch as soon as they got there. They had my mother and two granddaughters with them.
It was a busy afternoon. One of them vacuumed the entire house, NO small feat.
When we started, it seemed overwhelming. I had no real idea what we needed to do to make it look right. This, by the way, is what happens every year. But somewhere along the way, creative juices kick in, the brainstorming starts, and soon the studio begins to take on a whole new look. I actually love this.....and the studio needs it.....it's kind of a revamp. It gives me a new perspective, and we all know about that, right?
I actually think that this week will be OK. I am caught up on orders, I have 5 bamboo shawls and 8 bamboo scarves made. I got out my basket of Christmas table runners. Everything is pretty cleaned up, except for the inside porch where we put looper kits together, and that is a totally separate story.
I have cookies to make, and scarves to wet finish, a few errands to run, but for the most part it should be a fairly good week.
Having my three girls come to help me get ready for this event is pretty special.
But they are pretty special, each of them.
Together we have an energy level that is tangible. We laugh, and sometimes we're pretty loud.
But it always feels so good. In fact, I can't think of one thing that feels better.
