Where Does the Time Go?

Can it really be June 13?  Our anniversary (#26) is in a couple of days, Father's Day is Sunday and Clara's birthday (#23) is next week . . . . I am running as fast as I can, trying to keep up . . .   Barb and I have another show a week from this coming Saturday (Quiet Corner in Woodstock, Connecticut) so I should be working, but I am cleaning and weeding and mulching instead.  We've got guests coming on Thursday for the weekend, so there is shopping and cooking to do, too, and presents to be wrapped.  I've decided not to get stressed and to enjoy what I am doing when I am doing it.  Not that I love weeding.  Love gardens, hate gardening.  I should have been born rich so I could have a full staff of housekeepers and gardeners . . .

Some Information

Julia commented about the wool in yesterday's photographs.  The first couple of pictures feature our booth at the Long Island Fleece and Fiber Fair.  The hand-dyed wool in the grid boxes on the table is my sister Barb's wool and it is for sale.  She also made those cute little creatures displayed on the back table.  She has a couple of places you can go to purchase her stuff.  Her company name is thimblefolk (lower case t):  just click on the following links to get to her stuff.  She has an etsy shop under that name: thimblefolk on etsy  Barb and I share an eBay store under my company name: thepaisleystudio on eBay, and you can buy her wool there.  Lastly, you can view her critters on her PictureTrail album: Barb's Folk Art

When I talked to her this morning, she said she is starting to think Halloween.  Christmas won't be far behind!
