I always have to smile when people tell me I have it made.
They think my life is perfect, and easy, and normal.
They don't realize that a typical morning for me would be
Feeding six large dogs.
And four neurotic cats.
Cleaning two litter boxes.
Vacuum, do laundry, load dishwasher, and water the yard .
Combine that with the occasional dead rat that must be wrestled from a Great Pyrenees
And invariably cat puke somewhere along the way.
And then I go to the Shoppe to begin my "work" day.
Add the fact that my Tatsey turned one and her Mother turned 38...all within 3 days of each other.....and each event would rival the coming of the Lord in importance, according to my daughter :).
Along with that, I have been ill for two weeks.....
Firstly with food poisoning for two days which
Was followed by an upper respiratory infection.
And the complete loss of my voice for the last four days.
All during the busiest month I have had at the Shoppe in over a year.
And you ask how I am sane?
I create....I sew....and I close it all out for just a few hours every day.
I do have the Dallas Flea coming up in September and am desperately trying to catch up
And get ready for the event.
Since I am taking primarily my clothing line,
I thought I had best concentrate on getting some things done. This full length lace jacket is not for everyone, but does wear beautifully.
I wear mine over a black camisole silk dress with little ballet slippers.
You can still get a good feel for the overall effect.....
And that would definitely be GIRLIE.......
