Murphy Took A Day Off

It was supposed to rain in the afternoon. Then they changed it to morning rain with slow clearing. Saturday I awoke to brightening skies and not a drop of rain! That was great as it was a church fair day and my first craft sale of the season. Turnout was not spectacular, probably because the weather forecasters had assured the public that Sunday would be a far nicer day. However, my sales were super. I was astonished! Of course I always hope for better, but shouldn't be too greedy. I'm pretty sure I did the most in sales of everyone there! Lots of necklaces sold and three pair of earrings and a couple pins. No notecards, which is a first. Usually I sell lots of packs of notecards. You just can't seem to tell what the day's sales will be like. I made more than the table fee within the first 10 minutes. Here's a picture of my table when I set it up the evening prior to the fair.

Thanks to both of you. Now if I could just figure out how to not be so exhausted! Don't quite know what to do about it, I'm thinking the retail may have to go come the end of summer and hope that the piano end of things keeps it's upswing. I'm finding that I'm keeping myself going with saying to myself, "Just get to the end of this week." My summer is almost over and I haven't had chance to notice it.

Not surprised that you're exhausted, Deb. I get exhausted just reading about how much you do!

Don't know what to do about it. Things keep piling on. Love that the piano work has picked up...loads. The rest could use a break including family chore demands.
