Checking in with the list

Well, not much more got crossed off the list since the show. I did add some more things (in green) though: But a lot of stuff has been simmering,

But a lot of stuff has been simmering, and I’ve got some big things coming up!

  • Fingers & toes crossed, the website may actually be happening soon, and I’m planning a doozy of a giveaway to get it started!
  • I’ve got another show mid-November, I’m on the operating board for this one, and it’s been a lot of work. Hopefully our work pays off and we have wonderful weather and LOTS of customers.
  • Hubby has a conference in San Diego just before Thanksgiving, so the 4 of us are gonna have a couple of days down there (R&R for me and the boys, work for Daddy).

I’m in need of new focusing, and lo & behold, it’s time for another goal check in – just what I needed!

Getting in the Spirit!

Hooray – Halloween is on a Saturday…we’ve got all of tomorrow for pumpkin carving, costume making…no Halloween decorating for me though, I’m just not that into it. In fact, I’m not much into decorating for any specific holiday, except Christmas. I love making my house look good, and I like changing it…but now for a… Continue Reading
