Many of you may be wondering what I've been up to lately because there haven't been any new post or crafts being made around here in the last few weeks. Well, I've certainly been busy but not in a crafty way. The rain has given us a weed explosion on an epic scale this year. I've been pulling, mowing, weed-eating, and spraying the darn things and they are still growing faster than I can keep up with them. We purchased a torch to burn them little suckers to the ground and will try that next.
The week before Mother's Day was spent at the flower shop. I put in 70 hours that week and I feel like I am still trying to recover from it. Volume tripled fom Valentines Day and we were doing our best to keep up. As much I enjoy working the holidays, they are very hard on a person. Not much gets done at home that week but I prep meals before hand so it's easier on me. The week after events like this are spent bringing the house back up to par with laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc. along with errands that didn't get done.
Amongst all this, I am prepping for my one summer show in Duck Creek in July as well. I purchased a souble booth so I'd best get my butt in gear so I'll be ready for it. I told Timm to get a booth and sell some yummy BBQ but I think I need to be in that one as well. BBQ is not a one man operation. Who knows...if all goes well, next year a BBQ booth may be where I'm at next year.
