Too Fast

   The week has gone entirely to fast with our oldest home. Why is it when you are on vacation or have visitors the time just flies? He will head back in the morning for Louisiana. We are celebrating his birthday tonight. He has enjoyed his time at home even though he did start to have an asthma attack when we left the nursing home. The elderly ladies sure do like their perfume and use it very strong. 
   We had rain yesterday and I am assuming that we are going to have more this morning looking out of my window. The picture is the way that the sky looks and is chilly only 38. Some area's had more rain the last couple of days than we did. It was foggy, misting, and cold when I came home last night.
   My oldest grandson is going to state FFA competition with his horse judging team. Hooray! I am saying prayers for them that they do good. We are going running around tomorrow. He needs to get sponsorships for the 4H Horse Show that is coming up this next month. Baseball starts the 18th of this month with my youngest grandson. I haven't figured out why they play so early but it will be fun to watch. He is already asking if I am coming to watch. I think I will just have to dress for the temperature because I know it won't be that warm.
     My one day job came to end which I wasn't surprised. The one I filled in for is going to retire because of her health. Her Ms has been giving her problems more then usual. They need someone who can give them more hours. The way it was I didn't get to keep the money that I earn to help me. It is going to the nursing home. Bummers!, but that will stop being I am no longer employed. 
    I have been keeping the fingers busy with my embroidering. I will have more time to come to visit you all. Catch up on some things that I want to do, but not enough hours in a day. 
    Have any of you ever done a craft show in a mall? They are going to have one this year in November. The space is a little pricey, but would it be a good investment? It is before Thanksgiving you would have more people at the mall then where it has been held in the past. Do you get the impression that I am trying to talk myself in to possibly doing it? I just don't know. 
    Well I am off to the nursing home to spend time with hubby. Take care have a great weekend.

Shirley, You best chance to sell your wares would be church bazaars. They usually do not over charge for space. I will wish the best on that. Oh I am not a big perfume lover any more. I always bought the best..and even that is over powering...I think older ladies need to wear very light scents. and younger ladies just need to wear less. Hope you have agreat weekend. xoxo,Susie
P.s. Be careful in the bad weather. xo

I am allergic to perfume. It makes me nauseous and gives me a headache. I think that those old folks are probably given the perfume as a gift and probably don't have a good sense of smell anymore. I can think of a dozen gifts for someone in a nursing home that would be more practical. I hope your husband is doing well.

I am glad your visit with your son was filled with good times. Have a good visit with your husband.

Shirley-- I totally understand about strong perfume--,I'm super sensitive to that also!

I agree with some of your other friends here-- I think you would be happier at a church holiday bazaar for your lovely handiwork--

Good to hear all is going well with you and your family. I'm sure you will miss your son and will pray for a safe trip home for him.

I've heard of lots of people who are allergic to perfumes. My hair dresser doesn't wear any for that exact reason. (I never thought of it!!)

Not sure about craft shows at the mall, probably lots of traffic but also lots of work.

Good night and blessings my Missouri friend..

I haven't done a craft show in years, Shirley. I don't know if it is worth the investment or not. Some of my friends have done them with so-so results.

Glad you had fun with your son. I know you will miss him when he is gone. It is hard to see them leave, isn't it?

Too bad about your job ending but if you weren't earning enough to make it count I guess it is not such a bad thing to not have to go there the one day.

Have a good night- xo Diana

Shirley, you have been so busy as usual. I think in the Autumn all the church bazaars are a great place to sell things.
Hgus to you,

Hi ya sweets! Sorry to hear about your job. :( Glad you had time with your family. Sounds nice.
I think church bazaars would be perfect for you as well or even a farmers market.
Been thinking of you and sending you lots of hugs.

Hi sweetie Am so happy to hear you had such a nice visit with your son and to be able to share his birthday with him. I can't even walk down the store aisles with candles and potpouri or I start getting really tight chested. I didn't start that until just a few years ago what?? but you never know when asthma will start. Hope hubby is doing well
