Busy, Busy, Busy . . . Party, Party, Party!

It's been a whirlwind since before we left for market and it doesn't seem to be slowing down any in the near distant future.  Is crazy REALLY the new norm???

My Mother's Day gardening spree was cut short when I mis-stepped on the deck stairs and rolled my ankle.  Isn't it pretty?  This is what a broken ankle looks like three days after you fracture it in two places.  I was going to keep taking pictures as it grew more and more colorful & my toes resembled sausages, but pretty soon, even looking at it seemed to make it hurt more.  I've graduated to just wearing the boot outside of the house but the ankle is STILL swollen!  You'd think by now it would be back to normal.  Nope, 4-6 weeks the dr tells me.  HA, it's been 4 weeks, enough already.  More X-Rays Thurs, I'm hoping for a miracle cure.

Having a fractured ankle makes everything in life SO much more interesting and slower.  I didn't realize how much more time everything takes when you're gimping around.

We did our annual Memorial Day Sidewalk Sale at the shop over Memorial Day weekend.  That's always fun - good buys and we clean out!

While planning that, I've been working on the shop's 15th birthday party and listening with something close to horror as Sara and Brian planned Nathan's first birthday party at my house.  I stopped listening closely when the talk turned to tents and chairs for 60 some odd people.  Yikes!

Let me tell you, more military precision went into planning a one year old's birthday party than I thought possibile!

And speaking of the shop's birthday - 

Stop by the shop on June 11th from 10-4.  We're having cake, punch, drawings, games and FUN!  We're 15 and we're celebrating!
If you can't make it in person, we'll be doing an online party too.  
  • In-store party guests will be eligible for hourly drawings and three BIG end of the day drawings.  We'll have cake and punch at the shop and games to test your skills and let you win MORE hourly drawing tickets.  Every $20 you spend will get you a ticket for the end of the day drawings!  You must be present to win the hourly drawings but you won't have to be present for the end of the day drawings!
End of the day drawing prizes - must be picked up in the shop
