What a Week!

Oh my! It has been a very busy week for me. I'm trying to get lots of ornaments and winter items painted for the Christmas Open House. Monday was paperwork day. Tuesday was dedicated to a little blogging and a lot of laundry. Wednesday afternoons I work in our Craft & Gift Shop, but I did manage to get supper into the crock pot in the morning and paint a little. Thursday I needed to post a give away on my other blog and then spend 2.5 hours promoting that one, and one that I posted on Tuesday. Plus some painting & cleaning. Friday I had a one hour massage right after my morning bus run. Now that is the way to start the day!! After the massage I had to run errands, get groceries for the weekend, managed to make it home for hunch. Which left me 2.5 hours to do some laundry, tidy up, paint? (not this time) and check emails.


Today is Saturday apparently. We will be going to the neighboring city to check out some thinkgs & we would like to do some Christmas shopping for the boys. Might be back by lunch. Hey!! If today is Saturday - that means that tomorrow is SUNDAY!! A day of rest! That also means I don't have to do anything - right? I wish!! Maybe I'll have a nap during the NASCAR race LOL! or I'll probably end up painting some more items for my Etsy shop. No rest for the weary!

The pictures I've placed here are of some new ornaments I've painted. They will be in my shop for the Christmas Open House. I've started posting pictures of the Give Away items for the Christmas Open House. The fun begins on the 15th!! Don't miss it! Check out the post - see which 11 shops are participating and there is a way to get an early entry for the give aways! If you are looking for something for that "hard to buy for person" there is a great variety of shops to choose from, and with great promo's happening then.

My son is reading "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy " for his English class. This quote was in the book - it's what I feel like after this busy week:

"I ONLY KNOW AS MUCH ABOUT MYSELF AS MY MIND CAN WORK OUT IN IT'S CURRENT CONDITION. AND IT'S CURRENT CONDITION IS NOT GOOD"


HAVE A REALLY GREAT WEEKEND!!
