Gettin' 'er Done!

I had grand plans, today, getting the last of the Auction Treasures picked up... But...The roads are going to be a mess...so...I'm going to go help John, get some projects done....Justin and Josh helped deliver the Big Dawg Cupboard, to sweet Audrey... yesterday, then, helped me unload the Auction Load...{thank goodness....they made it all happen...Fast....! Those Boys are Workers...and can really kick some butt! Whew!}I will tell ya...the back of the shop, is annihilated...I nearly froze yesterday, working outside...and it's going to turn much colder...yet....oh dear...
I'm excited about the Anamosa Show...It's going to be fun....it always is! I'm trying to get the show schedule figured out, this year... I, at this point, won't be doing The Mid West Show, in Cedar Rapids...Mark and I have shared a booth, and he doesn't want to share, there anymore...{too much work...not enough money...} {where have I heard that, before...} I work him pretty hard...I need my partner in the booth, helping... Mark likes to shop.... I Have to Sell...{our lives depend on it...he has another job}and, have a good presentation....{ the Treasures, Customers, and Promoters, all deserve my best...} {Mark and I are going to share, the 4th of July, in Mt.Vernon...He'll be here at the Spring and Fall Sales.... He may not be doing Gold Rush...that's up in the air...{The Gold Rush Shows, are now Just MAY and AUGUST...no more September....I WILL be there...I LOVE THAT SHOW!!}The Mid West Show is full...I told them, if they have an opening, I would take a booth...If not...I'm thinking of doing something Fun, here at the Shop, that weekend... a Big Open House... or something Crazy....Who Knows...Oh Dear!!!!{my gears are spinnin'!!!} I have done shows alone, in the past... I'm working out, this old body is going to have to be fine tuned...and...thankfully, this business is full of little Angels, that will grab the end of a cupboard, when I'm struggling...
It's all good... I may be picking up, a few other shows... tho....as Mark and I were discussing them...we do quite a few...already...
I'm just handing it over....God will set me on the Path I need to be! No Worries!
For today... I'm focusing on Anamosa...this Sunday, the 23rd!!! and... Heart of Country! February 17th, 18th and 19th!!!! Amy Just Confirmed....She Got Her Ticket!!! So, Peg, Allyson, Amy and I are READY!!! There's still room for YOU!!!! Go to {heartofcountry.com} and make it happen!!!
Have a PRODUCTIVE Day!!!
