|One bin of hats...|
I am completely focused on getting ready for craft show this weekend, and fairly positive that I am stressing myself out completely! On top of that... seems I am getting a cold. I never get sick. For someone with a messed up immune system, I am really healthy. So doesn't it figure that the one cold a year that I seem to get would happen this week. I sure hope yesterday was simply a reaction to riding in the cold rain the day before. I really don't want to spend my first long vacation all year sick. I think that would simply make me incredibly depressed.
Over breakfast we were listening to the news. I am not crazy or losing my mind! Shocking I know. I missed it, but Hubby didn't. I really wasn't "allergic" to our country place. I was evidently very sensitive to the Lead mine they reopened not too long ago near the property. I am relieved to know that is what it is, as I am a complete outside person. I am also thankful that my work schedule kept us from being there more often.
I am a firm believer that all things happen for a reason. When I think back to a lot of things in my life, I realize that there was always something there that makes sense. Something that protected me or made my life better in the long run. I am so thankful right now for having a job that kept me too busy to enjoy my country place. I don't know if I will ever forget the burning of my skin, my eyes swelling and the breathing issues... I have an amazing guardian angel!
I will be kind of scarce this week, I feel completely unprepared for this coming weekend. Yesterday I managed to complete 8 hats, I was shooting for 10. That nap was needed though. I haven't done a craft fair in over 20 years. I might be being optimistic about what is waiting for me. Maybe I will have so many hats left over that I won't know what to do with them. Or maybe I will sell out completely and not have enough to man my booth for the two required days. Yikes! I am too much of a by the book, rule follower for this kind of uncertainty.
