Today is dead, dead, dead outside. Hardly any traffic, hardly any foot traffic.....no rhyme or reason.
I have been busy preparing for our big change. But I also need to focus on my Women in Business meeting (Poppy & Ivy is the host business.....) and then the Customer Appreciation Party on Thursday. I have obligations to take care of before I get too nutty and excited. After THAT, I can focus on The Change.
I found another great quote that applies itself nicely to my surprise.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France
I don't typically lean so heavily on quotes, but I keep finding these little things in the oddest places and I see them as signs. I found this in an old Mary Engelbreit magazine I was looking in for inspiration for The Girl's bedroom.
I know quite a few of my customers are HERE and I am not. And I want to be. And that makes me cranky. I have missed every barn sale they've had.
And I really, really NEED to be here, but I see they are closed tonight and open the same hours as me tomorrow. Grrrrrrrr.......
I need a clone.
There is nothing like a slow business day to make you realize everything you NEED to do!
That is a Heather Bailey photo. She took it. I have nothing to do with the taking of that photo. I did not clear it with her, but I bow down to her daily.....so I hope that's enough.
I painted The Girl's room pink this week while she is away, but I am going to POP it up. Oranges, greens and floral loveliness, but COOL, hip (I hope I can manage hip) and big girl. She is almost 15....I want her to feel like she has a cool room with personality and not something out of a PB Teen catalog. The good part is she doesn't know what she wants...so I can bend her a bit. She definitely alwaysknows what she DOESN'T want....lordy, lordy, lordy.
Off to go straighten up and lock her up after SUCH a busy day. HA!
