Time to relax!

Wow...been a long time since I posted! The last time I was making some progress on my Christmas Goose items. I ended up making over 250 items and did quite well in the end. We pick up our checks in a couple weeks so will know exact amount then. Needless to say, I am SOOOOO glad its over! It is really hard on the body but not so bad when you look back! We have to be there early on Fri morning...decorate and then set out our items...then rush home and "try" to look good (lol) and festive...back down for the show that began at 5:00 p.m. until 9. Then back by 8:30 for the show to begin at 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Then its tear down, itimize our items left over and clean up...then we are done!! Thats a rundown on the show. I stress so much before hand that when its over I really don't want to sew but need to so badly! I did manage to get a few items of my leftovers on ebay and my WSOAPP shop.

It is hard to get pics of all I made...I had them scattered so many places in the house. It took about 6 containers (lg) to load it all up...but did it and now just have to deal with the leftovers...sell or save for next year! I have an order for a santa but otherwise need to just get busy on my santas for ebay!
Today I had a dentist appt in Roseville which was more lengthy than the usual cleaning as I had full mouth x-rays. Afterwards I ventured over to the Antique favorite thing to do after I go to the dentist. Vendors were setting out Christmas much there! Of course, much of it is pricy but did find some little things for santa bags. It is just fun to go down the isles..which I think there must be around 8 long ones and many booths. Made a quick trip to the mall then headed home...which took forever! Traffic was much construction. Tomorrow a storm is supposed to come in so will be nice to just take the day to do some cleaning, maybe cut out a santa and listen to my christmas music! Yes...I have been this week since they Sirius/XM are now playing it on a couple of their channels. I know its early but sometimes I would just rather listen to that vs the stuff on the other stations and tv..some is so depressing!!
Next week is Thanksgiving already..hard to believe!! I am cooking dinner this year so have to head to town on Sat to pick up the ingredients, ham, etc. We are tentatively planning a weekend trip to Grass Valley/Nevada City for my husband's birthday and just to shop!! Our daughter Rhonda and family will go should be fun!!
Guess thats about all for now. Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
