The guild show is over, and it was very successful. But I'm glad it's done, and I can just
This was something I made this week, and it's sold already. It can be worn like a poncho, but I kind of like it this way better.d
Hopefully, I will have some more sales before Christmas, then not have to worry too much about retail until spring shows.
Mornings are definitely my favorite time of day. I'm always up in time to watch the sun rise.
Naya is usually taking her after breakfast nap at my feet, so she misses it all.
For some reason, I have always hated dish drainers. But the simple truth is that there are always dishes on the counter, and it seems like I do dishes several times a day.
Until now. My daughter bought me this dish drainer at Bed, Bath and Beyond,
and I love it. My counter now looks neat, and water "drains" into the sink, instead of
sitting on a wet towel.
Such a simple fix. It even folds flat to store, and it has a metal piece (on the left) that flips up and holds stemmed glasses.
Another purchase, by me, that I love. They are Vionic slippers, the most recommended for
plantar fasciitis, this style is "Gemma". I don't have PF anymore, but having had it for a year and a half, I am terrified of getting it again. So I don't ever go barefoot. These are warm, and so comfortable, and I wear them ALL the time.
Don't tell me that we aren't festive. Because we are.
It took me all of 5 minutes to put up my tree. It helps that the ornaments are already on the tree.
I love simple. It makes me happy, and it was easy, too. Long gone are the days that I want to
spend hours putting decorations up, only to spend more hours in a few weeks, to take them all down.
I think once your children are out of the house, you change the way you think about it. At least I have.
So far, November has been tough. I've had a brutal headache just about every day. It started about November 1st, exactly the same time that we started up the pellet stove.
I know that my headaches are dependent often on weather changes, but I seriously question the role of the pellet stove.
It's dusty, and dirty, in my opinion, it's worse than a wood stove.
On top of that, cleaning it once a month causes more dust.
If I could be sure that it was making my headaches worse, it would be gone in a heartbeat.
Since there is a shed full of pellets, I will have to get through this winter with it, but I am seriously
thinking of doing something different for next year.
For now, once again, it's one day at a time.
