Rainy Monday!!!

Well it's another rainy day here in Maine, but a good day to get things done. I'm doing my usual cleaning house stuff, but also getting some opening my shop stuff done.
(I think I like the word "stuff" )

Benjamin called home last night, and was able to talk with his dad, (Blue Eyed Husband), and his siblings, ( 18, 16, & 13yr. old. ) 18 year old said Benjamin sounded real good.

I was already at my Sunday coffee at Tim Hortons with the ladies from church, and didn't get to talk with him. It's alright though. He told his dad to "Please remember to tell mom I love her very much."

That is always nice to hear from any peep willing to say it, especially one who has joined the Army.

Things are going forward with the shop. When I think about it, I get so excited, I am overwhelmed!!! In a good way. I called for insurance, and to get on the docket for the next city council meeting to see if my business will be approved. It is scheduled for the 7th of April. I will have to go and share my vision for the shop, and answer any questions. I CAN'T WAIT!!! THEY'LL HAVE TO PULL ME OFF THE MICROPHONE WITH A HOOK. I WON'T BE ABLE TO STOP TALKING ABOUT IT. YIKES!!! They'll say "yes" just to shut me up!!! No really, it's happened to me before. I have such good friends, and sisters. They are so tolerant of me and my excitement.

(fabric at a local store I went to Saturday. Can we say YUMMM)

Anywho... Jessica (a sweet stay at home mom from my church), said to me yesterday that she is hooked on my blog lately. Thank you Jess. I sure do appreciate your willingness to read my ramblings. Blessings to you all!

(These pictures are kind of random, but I like them all, and only the last one is mine)

Ok, sorry about the rain, but as you know we got snow. You don't have to shovel rain.
I am also "hooked" on your blog and I count this as a "Good Thing", as Martha herself would say.
Also, I WANT THAT GLIDER, any good shipping rates? Better yet, hold it for me, I'll pick it up when your shop opens.....wishing.
