Life is a blur as always, whipping here and there.
flying by the seat of my pants on everything I do. I will say that honestly I feel like the luckiest person alive...because if you actually saw how I operate, you would be amazed...because yes, I am a whirling disaster.
but Somehow, miraculously, Things always seem to work out, don't ask me how or why, but they do.
Case in point, this morning.
I was scheduled to set a table at the Women's city club for their annual "tables and tea" event.
As usual, I was running behind, shuffled kids to school, came home cleaned kitchen and prepared dinner in the crockpot a nice pork tenderloin with an apricot glaze and stuffing mind you (don't be impressed it is super easy! ha ha ha! it just sounds fancy ) ;)
then I prepared to head out to get my table ready. it was now 9:45.
the event started at 11 AM.
I decided to call the place to just double check that they furnished table cloths. well evidently they DID NOT.
O.k. don't panic.
I only has consumed 2 non-drowsy sudafed loaded with ephedrin to clear my sick stuffy head, and consumed 2 cups of coffee, so yeah, my heart wasn't racing one bit. noOOO.
I raced to the store twitching and shaking to try and find a 60 inch round white tablecloth, no luck.
thankfully there was an amazing woman there who suggested I go around the corner to the rental facility and rent one!
WIth tablecloth in hand I raced to the shop and started to load up on supplies. mind you, I had only thought about my table in my head, I really had NO idea what I was going to do....so trying not to decompensate I grabbed Ann, my few goods, and raced to the place, 40 minutes till it opened.
We unloaded things at break neck speed...
of course right on top of my table was a white tablecloth,that they supplied.
O.k., mentally telling myself, don't get irritated. things happen...it's o.k. it ALLL worked out! ;)
So This is what we ended up with, I think it turned out pretty good!
AND we had 20 minutes to spare, not bad huh?
So I guess what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't take too much thought to pull together a fun table.
I literally spray painted twigs that I had ripped off a tree that fell down in a storm on the side of the shop.
Now on another lucky note,
We were completely surprised that a television crew from Philadelphia contacted us to film a commercial at our store Free of charge!!! holy cow.
SO they showed up last week and we survived it.
I even got Ann to go on camera! how hilarious is that!
we made up the rooms just so, adding a few extra touches like the green plants in sap buckets attached to the wall.
again, flying by the seat of our pants.
So on that note, I am going to sit back and take a deep breath, happy that I am finally sitting down for a nano second sipping a delicious hot cup of soup watching Ann unpack the fabulous christmas boxes that just rolled in. :)
but shushhhhhhh we aren't talking about Christmas right now AT ALL!!!! no, no NO!it's FALL and we are enjoying every last crisp minute of it!
Have a Happy day everyone!
thanks for taking a peek!
