. . . that keep me going.
And make me happy. Like this mug. I was having a very hard time getting started today. I wore myself out at the festival yesterday, so I made myself a latte in my special mug that Emmet painted for me many moons ago for Mother's Day. It always makes me smile; the mug I mean. The coffee just wakes me up. As for the 15 year old Emmet, he woke up, barfed and went back to bed. No school today. Then there was this guy.
Those sleepy eyes really do not inspire hard work. But, alas, there was work to be done. Even after working all weekend.
I spent Sunday with these lovelies at the Abbot Kinney Festival. It's a one day fair, which means you're up at the crack of dawn to drive to the venue, set up, sell all day, tear down at 6, drive home, unload, pass out. Andy helped with the first and last part. I would not have survived without him.
Once the clouds burned off, the people came, shopped, and enjoyed a beautiful day.
There was great music, including this band, "Superbroke Brass and Tin and Strings". They were playing in the kids area right behind my booth, and were amazing!
There was good people, er, creature watching too.
I met the very kind Nina from Cute Hoots blog. She bought several things, and then, SURPRISE, featured me on her blog! Thanks Nina! She's into all things owl related, so we hit it off.
The day was a great success, thanks to all who shopped and visited. It was my first time at the festival and I hope to be back next year!
Well, I did digress. I was planning to tell you how I had written a different, complete post, when my computer shut down, and it was lost, and how the day went down hill from there. Which is why you are probably reading this on Tuesday, instead of Monday. It's probably just as well. I'm sure you don't want to hear about all that other crap. Here's to starting fresh tomorrow, with a good night's sleep.
