No time to rest...yet...

After getting home and dropping straight down on the floor in the entry to receive all my doggie kisses and waggy tails, I plopped myself in the sofa for a few hours and caught up on newspapers and mail. A dinner with Mom, catching her up on the weekend events, and then a few tv shows.

What I wanted to do at that point was go to bed! But duty calls. I've spent the last few hours at the computer completing my show reconciliation spreadsheet that shows me what I sold, what I spent, and what I made. If I don't do it right away then I move on to other urgent things and it never gets done. I've learned my own bad habits and try to combat them. Then I started looking over the instructions for Tuesday night's class and making a few tweaks. I'll get those printed out before I go to bed tonight because Tuesday is going to be errand day! I also need to spend time working on the various orders I need to make to replenish my supplies for kits. Between the Miami and Phoenix shows I'm pretty depleted - darn. Gonna have to buy more beads!!

Here's a few photos from the weekend.
First, our bird's eye view of the game. Literally. We're lucky we didn't get dive bombed by pigeons.

This is the amazingly gracious Joyce Rooks, Anne Mitchell, and Vickie watching the fireworks after the game. It was totally worth waiting out all 9 loosing innings. Well, I think that. I'm not sure Anne did! But she was a good sport and indulged my craving for the pretty colors and booms and bangs.

My dear friend and amazing lampworker, Dolly. She's the poor woman who has to survive the five days of the Bead & Button show next to our booth. And yet, she still speaks to me. Go figure!

And last, but not least, this was Anne, sneaking behind the curtains to come visit my booth. "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" We entertained ourselves during the slow times by popping back and forth for 30 second visits, or text messaging each other from 30 yards away. Show hijinks, exposed for all.
