Today was opening day for the Christmas shop.
A soft opening as I think they call it.
We’ve always opened the day after Thanksgiving.
I felt good about being early this year
…..until you realize that I had wanted to open on the 1st of November.
…OK only 19 days late
…who’s counting anyways?
I still have so much to price and put out but it’s looking Ok
….so before things start to get bought up I thought I’d share a little with you.
It had been so long since I even took a picture that it felt a little odd at first.
Like picking up an old friend…
oh yeah, I remember you. I did have fun trying out a few settings.
Manual!!!! woo hoo
I was afraid I might forget how to post too.
BloggerGods must be good to me tonight
because I’m having none of the usual issues.
I had these little crowns on the counter ready to be priced. Couldn’t do it last night.
I had such a mess on this counter….that is still not all cleared off but it never really is.
I was going to photograph it last night at 12:30 to show you how awful it was
and show you how I’ve had it for months now.
But I got told from the big Boss that it was time to go….
so I went to town on it right away.
Then suddenly I realized an hour had gone by
…..and yes I was still working on cleaning the counter of all the junk!
But then I thought where the heck is he??
I called him on his cell phone.
For some reason I pictured him somewhere lying there hurt.
I think I was just too tired and my mind was going….
so I went out to find him.
I won’t keep you in suspense….
he was fine.
…but our furnace in one of the greenhouses wasn’t.
Figures right?? on the coldest night so far.
Well whatever he did seemed to work.
thank goodness……I know nothing about furnaces….except to hit the reset button.
So needless to say I’m a bit tired today.
…..so I will keep this post short and return with more pictures.
Oh the good thing is we finally heard from our tree guy.
The othergood thing was that we didn’t have to give him a 25% deposit like
all of them expect to hold the order.
So though they were supposed to arrive today they are on their way.
I had a customer who used to sell trees once say to me……
”dealing with wholesale tree sellers was like dealing with a
(not that I would know about any of that!)
but they can be rather flaky and unreliable!
Ok now that I’ve given you that “pretty image”
I”ll leave you with these last two
opps I mean 3.
And you thought I had no
Like this little bear I can’t wait
until it’s time to hibernate for the Winter.
Oh I can feel it now. Rolling over in bed and hitting that
for the 10th time!!!!

I guess blogger wasn't as kind as I thought earlier:)
