Carry on

I caught a head cold last weekend and it's still hanging on, making the rounds between throat, nose, head and chest. Blah blah blah. I'm not incapacitated, but sniffly and feeling a little puny. I've been thinking about when I was sick for the better part of February with a nastier bug, and am trying to get enough rest so it doesn't go there.

Anyway, it's been a good week. I sold about 14 bracelets this week, including one big order of seven that I will ship to the UK today. My insurance agent also bought two - how nice is that? I hand delivered those and refunded her shipping. I'm still feeling like I need to make more stuff for the craft show (my first craft show!) November 10th, so will try to get there in the next couple of weekends. I don't get much done during the week, craftwise.

My internet went out on Monday. My cable internet comes to my house from a line that runs above the alley beside my house, and it's low enough that if tall trucks come down the alley, it catches. My local phone line is right there as well, and that's gone out two or three times over the seven years I've lived here. This time that line was OK, but the cable went, but the guy came out on Wednesday and strung it up a little higher than before.

I'll leave you with a picture of my dog Sally and her Halloween costume from a couple of years ago. Truth be told, she wore it only for the few seconds it took to get the picture. She's not much of a costume wearer.


  1. Ah, what our dogs do for us... I would highly recommend dosing yourself with Emergen-C - one packet three times a day. It consistently knocks my oncoming colds out and won't let them get a toe hold. Congrats on your bracelets! Is this a big craft fair? You must be in full production!

  2. Such good news about your bracelet sales and the upcoming craft show! Hope you can find time to get a good selection made. That always makes people look longer and buy more!

    If you can tolerate fresh garlic (cooked if you can't take it in a raw state) it will knock those bad germies out of you. Also try to get a little extra sleep.

    I had to laugh at Sally. Poor baby does not look happy.


Hi, sorry to make the humans do an extra step.
