We have been invited to a couple of Juried Events before Christmas...one in particular looks highly appealing but it is $175 up front and will mean two days totalling 21 hours of selling....that's pretty darned demanding. You can tell I am new to this whole vendor life...then too, I am only one person and I am realizing very late in life that I can only do so much on my own. So my inventory can only be what I can produce....is that enough for a huge show??? Points to ponder. I had given serious consideration to doing the International Folk Festival but backed out of that one.
So now you know where I have been keeping myself all these months. No moss growing on me from lack of activity even though it be of the more sedentary variety. The yard has been kept up albeit rather poorly. At least the neighbors aren't leaving threatening notes on my door or calling the Health Dept. I mow the grass and trim the edgings as much as my feeble body will allow. Now that the weather is finally cooling. it is easier to get out and do the yard work. I sure have progressed immensely from that depressed, sickly, crippled old lady living alone and deserted in the desert a year ago....I am soooooo grateful for my grandchildren and daughter's family for that improvement in my lifestyle!
So that's my latest scoop on what's new in my world TODAY....no more promises on how loyal I am gonna be to posting more blog entries. When it happens, it happens....take care ya'll.

I have been so remiss in posting on here...shame on me!! Squeakers is now 4 years old....I have been in my new home over 8 months....most everything is still in boxes.....I have been selling at the City Market in downtown Fayetteville every Saturday for about 6 weeks now....I mow my own lawn, work in the garden pulling weeds, planting, watering, raking leaves. WOW!! I AM ALIVE ! ! ! At Last!
I realize I will have to be doing a whole lotta De-Stashing of my yarn & Beads on Etsy REAL SOON!!
But here's the kicker of all kickers...I am applying for a part time J O B to be able to supplement my disability income so I can SURVIVE!!!
YUP! I can do it!!!! I KNOW I CAN!
My daughter, April and I in a Huge HUG for the first Mother's Day we have been able to share in ten long and miserable years apart!
I could not believe how my health and body has healed since moving back to be with my family in NC...I actually bowled(well, I threw the ball down the alley without pain or falling!! BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT!!!!
