Inch by Inch

The summer is rolling along too quickly.  I can hardly believe we’re well into July.  Our spring and early summer has been such a whirlwind of activity.  Never a dull moment!

Our new garage is up and coming along nicely.  Cement floor poured and roof on so at least it’s protected from the rain.  Solar panels are next on the list.

Our new septic is in and I’m enjoying doing laundry at home again!  I re-discovered laundromats and although it wasn’t terrible at all, it’s much easier to do laundry at home rather than lugging everything out and then bringing it back.  Simple joys!

The trailer/mobile shop is working really well at the markets.  It’s such a huge difference in how we feel at the end of the day when we don’t have all that carrying and setting up to do.  Also, customers are able to see so much more product and have more choices.  It’s especially been nice on the rainy and windy days.  We’re mostly dry and warm!

I’ve had loads of visitors to the mobile shop here at home.  People who’ve been to the market, and come again for more! and others who just find me online and want to shop!  It’s wonderful and I think will only get better.

Inch by inch, bit by bit, step by step, we’re getting there.  Living the dream!

 

And, We’re Back!

We have moved and are no longer living out of and around boxes.  Yeah, us!  Things are getting settled and our new mobile shop is almost ready to go.  We will be going to our first market this Friday and although things won’t be quite as polished and prepared as I’d hoped, at least we’ll be there.

I love my new trailer and my most amazing, fantastic, bestest, wonderfulest, talentedest husband has done magic with shelving.  Pictures to come once I get those shelves stocked!

The online shop is open again for shipping and new yarns and patterns coming later this week.

So happy life is slowly returning to normal!  Moving is stressful!

Busy Life

Everyone says they are busy.  Busy lives.  The nature of today’s society.  But, I’ve had a bit of a reprieve from that since retiring from teaching and suddenly, my life is busy again.  Super busy.

We are moving.  In 5 short weeks.  Very short.  Some days I feel overwhelmed and other days, I’m calm and know everything will be fine.  We’re excited and happy and very ready for a change, but that doesn’t change the fact that there’s still so much to do.

Packing up our house and selling things we no longer need or want is manageable and do-able.  I’m making good progress on that front.  My stress is coming from moving and managing the business side of my life.  All that yarn!!!

I’m thinking about some sort of sale for Easter weekend to reduce my stock.  Stay tuned!  I think a sale is coming!
