You never know what you’re going to get.
Not technically summer yet till tomorrow.
Today June 20th 2015. Gloomy and Gross.
This weekend will be “A Wash”.
There will be no going out to the lake, or BBQ’s, or canoeing, or even yard work.
The threat of rain at any moment makes all that un-doable.
For me there is always tons to do.
I am after all the end all, be all of this household.
The Queen and Keeper. The Warden and Prisoner.
I am Mom. I am Wife.
But I am also the creator, designer, and owner of my own small business. To which I am the only employee.
And I have a few orders to fill.
Today its Hostess Gift Sets. Handmade Soaps and
my handmade 100% US grown cotton shower/bath puffs. Lovingly crocheted by me.
Part taught to crochet by my grandmother and grandfather and part self taught.
These take me about an hour and half, if I’m left uninterrupted.
Always starting out the same. A pile of yarn, I pray doesn’t knot up on me.
Soon a beautiful, full, soft shower puff.
And finally packaged with the soap.
