WildHare Summer Festival/Art/Antiques/Fleamarket

Wow.......about a month from right now we will be at the Fort Hall Monument in Upper Ross Park getting ready to open up for our first full day at the WildHare Summer Festival/Art/Antiques/FleaMarket. I still have vendor space available if you know of anyone who would like to participate!!!

On Thursday the 22nd, we will have a preview in conjunction with the Chamber After Hours that the Pocatello Convention and Visitors Bureau is hosting. We are open from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM. Free food and drinks and some fun activities. I hope you bring your families and come up to the Grand Opening of the show!

In case anyone is interested, on that Thursday night there will be a book dealer from the Logan area who will not only be selling books, but he is buying as well. If you have been holding on to some collectible books and haven't had a clue (like me) about how to sell them, then this could be your chance. He will even set up an appointment to come to your home and look at your books. I sold a bunch to him the other day when he was at my house and he is a great guy who came highly recommended! He was also kind enough to give me an idea of what some of the ones that I still have might be worth and whether or not they are collectible. It was a very informative day and I learned a lot about what to look for when I am buying as well as selling.......Come meet him.......Nice guy and I think he was really fair.......He knows a lot!!! And now I know more than I did before I met him......I'd also be happy to give you his contact information if anyone is interested.

For is time for me to get into the yard.....plant a few things that I brought home from my gardening job yesterday to replant.........I love that!!! Then off to my third (or is it my fourth) job. Working at Curves and I love it.......I can get you a free week there if you like.......Well, that is if you are a girl......sorry no boys allowed! Give me a call or stop in and see me......I work from 11:00 AM until 6:00 PM today........we are closed between 1:00 and 2:00........

A Day Off!!! sounds like a day off.......But as usual, Miles to go and promises to keep!

Hopefully today (possibly tomorrow, Friday) we will hear about how the CVB faired in the war with city hall.......they say you can't fight city hall, but we decided to anyway.......keep your fingers crossed!

Today I am going to plant my tomatoes.......provided it warms up past the 36 - 38 degrees that it got down to last night.....I also bought these beautiful petunias that I have to get in a pot. Really, they are the most beautiful flower in the shop. Well, they were in the shop......I think that I bought the last 4 plants in Pocatello and that was only because they are so awesome at Pinehurst Nursery. I will treasure these until the bitter end next fall.

Those of you who know that I go to a Quilt Club every month will be amazed to hear that I actually worked on a project last night! No.......sorry.......not a quilt. A pillow though......with a huge flower in the middle made of individual petals! Like 120 individual petals.......all sewn on one at a time! The tutorial said it could be made it in under 30 took me longer than that to cut out the petals and another 1 and 1/2 hours to sew them on.......Really far. I haven't actually sewn the pillow case together and stuffed it with a pillow! Today though, I!!!

Tomorrow we hang the tissue pom poms in the Stephens Center for Performing Arts......All 300 hundred of them. I can hardly will be beautiful and I promise to post a picture when it is completed. Hopefully I can see it through to completion......I also work at Curves tomorrow afternoon. Good thing....I don't seem to get there unless I am working! Saturday I will be at Cynthia Louise Boutique! I love it there too.........Come see me!!!

10 Little Ducklings All in a Row

Yesterday I was on my way to the rental shop to take back the rototiller......I passed by the movie theater and there was the sweetest picture (too bad that I didn't have my camera) that I have seen in a long time. A whole day care going back to their facility with two leaders. They were all holding onto a rope, in single file with a leader in the front and one in the back. They all had on bright green t-shirts. Can you picture it? They reminded me of little ducklings with their parents crossing the street in front of me! I am still smiling just picturing it.......

Where does the time go?!

Today is Thursday?!

Holy Smoley.......where did the week go? We have had Ben and Ryley here for about a week and a half so there goes some of it....I have worked a day at Curves and when it hasn't been raining I have been doing my gardening job......rototilling flower and tomato gardens......spreading manure and fertilizer......listening to the birds chirp......getting grass stained jeans from spending so much time on my knees.....have I remembered to pray while I am down there......if I haven't, shame on me! Of course, all of the normal household activities like laundry, meals and cleaning never end....Also trying to get the WildHare Summer Festival off the ground. Even city politics make me crazy! There is always a hoop to jump through to make things happen......more on that later when I can divulge the "stuff" ( I probably wouldn't call it "stuff" if we were talking in person!) that has been going on......Onward and upward's all good and I am happy to have a full and fulfilling life.

Last night I was able to spend dinner time with some of my best friends in the church.......took a flashlight walk with the kiddies.....stayed up too late and then I got up too early this AM.......spent an hour googling tomato cages......awesome........I should have gone exercising, but Ryley came out to my office in a sleepy stupor this morning and asked me to not leave him alone out office......I should call it my retreat, and we do call it the TreeHouse is actually outside.....across a bridge connected to the deck. I love it out here and so does he, but he doesn't like to be out here in the dark which it was when he shuffled on over! So, here I still sit at my computer after about 3 hours of accomplishing little.....I am ready to head to Home Depot (The $100.00 store) and buy PVC for the tomato cages though and they will be worthy of attention and maybe even worthy of being copied!

Add to that painting a wooden wedding cake that we made to serve cupcakes off of at wedding receptions......this bride's mom would like for it to be painted a champagne metalic was white with pink fleur de lis for the last one........and next week we will go to the Performing Arts Center and somehow (bride's mom says she has it figured out) hang about 300 tissue pompoms (that we made) from the ceiling with fishing line.....should be beautiful.......WOW.....I can hardly wait to see the finished project......Actually, just the thought of a finished project is music to my ears!!!
