« Part 709: Keeping On Our Toes Part 710 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 711: Double Duty »

Yesterday seemed to just fly by. I worked for the better part of the day on updating the site, and then I needed to pack up the large order to be mailed out today. Before I knew it, it was just about midnight when the last pieces were packed and ready to go.

It is good, as always, to see the order ready to go out the door. The previous order is still in transit, and hopefully it will arrive in Ohio soon.

There is much to do and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling a bit of pressure. Trying to do everything – and do it right – is somewhat challenging.

I will say something though – after sending out the newsletter and hearing from many of the customers, I do enjoy it very much. The people and the stories are friendly and so nice to talk to. I have the best customers in the world, I think.

I need to keep this short today, as I have to arrange for the pickup and get the garbage to the curb before I head to the gym. All things that need to be done early.

I wish you all a great day today. Have fun and be happy! :)

I wish I was a glow worm,
A glow worm’s never glum.
‘Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!

My son did too, Roger! We have a picture of him and he was no bigger than the glow worm! Glad I made you smile today. It’s a warm one here and I am longing for some snow (just kidding, but not really!)

Have a great day! :)

We had a white blue eyed Persian cat that was deaf and my 2 girls could do anything with him, dressing him in doll clothes and anything they wanted to put on him, he took it very gently! HOWEVER, let an adult try that and boy did we get clawed! He was very gentle if we don’t try to dress him, guess he knew kids don’t know any better?

What does this have to do with your post? Nothing, except the picture gave me flashbacks of that cat. Also once the neighbors’ dog was barking at him and he didn’t see the dog immediately but when he did, he just looked at the dog and I guess his not reacting to the barking made the dog think “Oh, Oh, maybe I bit off more than I can chew!” He tucked his tail between his legs and hightailed it out of the yard.

Hi, Erwin:
I guess the kitty had nothing to do with my post anyway, except that I am happy and it went with the little poem. :) It’s a silly thing that I saw and wanted to share to entertain you all with your morning coffee.

I loved reading your story about your cat! We used to dress out cats up too when we were small. My first cat (Cindy) was jet black and we used to put a pink night dress and granny cap on her and put her in our doll buggy and wheel her down the street. She was pretty tolerant of us, although she would retaliate sometime when she wasn’t in the mood. I had her from the time I was three until I was sixteen years old. Thank you for jogging my memory about her too. :) I hope you have a wonderful day!

Sheila
