IN A SLUMP

Sorry I havn't been in much..so many things going wrong. Garden is pretty pathetic..it is all getting dehydrated from the heat. Billy bought a riding mower and we knew it needed a battery but it is leaking gas so now he has to fix that also before he can ride to mow. It is a BIG yard (over an acre) and hard on him to do with push mower ...even if it is self propelled.
Trying to set up my garage sale for this Fri and Sat but has been soooo hot I can't even get out there to mark the stuff. This weather is making me feel like I am still in AL but no snakes or rats and this heat will not last as long up here.
They are having a function in a town 5 miles from here next month and they do have crafters but I do not enjoy the thought of sitting outside in the middle of August so I will set one up in my garage and I will go to the Pioneer Days function on the first day and then have a sale in my garage on the other 2 days. A lot of the people that will go to the sale will be driving past my house and rather than hauling all my things and tables up there I will just take my chances here. At least when no one is here I can come back in the house if I want to.
I made some framed items and a pillow with pic of there dog for a customer and they loved it and said they will be ordering more so that was something good this week.
I will post pictures in my next post in a few days to show all of you.
My main goal now is to sell enough stuff (GS and orders and ebay and blog) to be able to buy a fence for my fur babies.
I will be back in a few days with better news and some pictures so come back soon :)

Nancy, these hot, summer days can be so discouraging, especially when you feel your energy sapped and things are so dry out there. We were like a desert for a while. And the hose just didn't cut it. Plus, just standing out there in the heat watering everything was unbearable. It finally broke here, and we had a week of rain. I know about the lawn mower problems, too. I have to resolve that one here. I don't know if I can push one, as I have such a big yard, too. Hope you have great sales!!!

Hopefully you will make some sales at your garage sale and more on ebay. Before you know it, it will be Fall with better weather. Ours is unusually cool outside so made painting project go easier.

Today is a whole new day. Hopefully, yard sale proceeds will fund repair for your riding lawn mower. It's dry here in Texas with no relief in site. Our well helps keep a few things alive, but nothing is like having rain falling from the sky.

Have a good day and think positive.
