Work: A little busy today. We took some orders, quoted future orders, started investigating advertising options for 2009, did some banking business and bought some supplies. I didn’t buy that many supplies but ended up “crashing” the automatic checkout at the store. Hmmm…. was it too many paper towel? So even though the economy is nothing but bleak, our business is still going strong. Let’s just hope it stays that way. We’ve been fortunate because credit lines, loans, financing are just NOT our thing and so we don’t have the worries that a lot of small business have right now. Counting our blessings for sure.
Weather: Who could ask for more?! It is beautiful out there. Fall in NYS is so pretty especially on a day like today. I think Ted is washing the lawn furniture to pack up for winter. We still need to turn over the small flower beds to get them ready for snow fall. And… oh the leaves! So, so many leaves. I asked Ted the other day if we might make big piles by the house and jump off the roof into them. That didn’t thrill him as he’s afraid of heights but did appease me by saying he might be game if we get enough snow. So I guess I’ll have to wait for that kind of fun.
The front walk way is making slow progress. The contractors stopped by for about 1/2 hour to put some color to the stampcrete. It is looking good…can’t wait until it’s finished. They still have to build the wall around the front patio. Here is the pic. of how it looks right now:
Dinner tonight: There is a crock pot turkey breast-a-cookin’ for the meat eater(s) (plural if Shane is fortunate enough to snag some bird). As for the vegetarian, it’s left over spicy salmon and part of an edamame burger I had in the freezer. It crumbled when I put it on the plate. Both of us enjoy fresh, steamed broccoli.
That’s it for the day. Now Ted is going to show me how to do a few things to make life easier while computing. Every little bit helps!
