Whew!!

It's been several days since I've blogged and y'all know that's not like me. I'm a bit of a chatterbox. Why does one always get sick at the most inconvenient time?



I came down with a super nasty cold the other day, just when I had so much to do. Dayquil to the rescue! I also slipped and fell down our porch steps due to the ice. I'm sure the neighbor's all got a good giggle out of it. Graceful, I'm not. Friday I had visitors all day long bringing items to be sold at a "Home for the Holidays Sale" on Saturday. We moved all of my furniture out of the living and dining rooms, moved in a bunch of tables and displays and set the entire place up like a nice boutique. It was GORGEOUS! And being the sick blogger that I was, it never occured to me to take a picture.

So after working my tail off Friday, I had to pack up my own things and take them to a jewelry party out of town Friday night. The turnout was decent and sales were okay, but not great. Came home, put my sick self to bed, and woke up early Saturday morning to host the Holiday Sale here at my house. And an ice storm moved through. Ugh. Given the weather we actually had a decent turnout, but if the weather had cooperated, I think it would've been HUGE. We had loads of comments about how great the place looked and the people who did come, thoroughlly enjoyed shopping.

I now have about 17 orders I need to catch up on but I'm thankful for that. Now on with your regularly scheduled blog hopping. Thanks for stopping by!

Despite being sick, things sound great! I will have to remember to try Dayquil the next time I get sick.

Beki,
How ironic...I have had a severe cold for the past week....AND i feel down my steps on Saturday afternoon.

YIKES!

I landed on my but, then my back...I was so close to hitting my head, but instead I simply got the wind knocked out of me.

Anywho...
Way to go with all the creative business ongoings!

Best,

Sylvia C.

Glad you are feeling better. You have had one packed weekend. You are a falling, partying, packing making gal. Just reading your post tired me out. Smiles and hugs

May your business keep growing.

Isn't it ironic how the flu and the holiday season go together, just when you're the most busy.

Be well,
Phyllis
