Daily Stuff 7-10-11

Hi, folks!

The sun coming through the skylight slapped me across the face as I headed into the bathroom. That was not a good way to start a day when I already overslept. Now that I have a little coffee on the inside of me, I’m not *quite* as grumpy and it’s gorgeous too see it on the alder and pouring over the porch rails.

There’ve been a few sparrows on the feeder. The birds have really slowed down now that there’s more in the way of other food.

The early part of yesterday was spent on rosebuds… lots of ‘em. I think three of us (Rowan, Ashley and me) spent 2 hours at that, but we were also prepping other harvested plants, by around 10:30 we were already heavily into Infusions/Decoctions/Tinctures. Trisha stopped by and let us know that the twinberry plants were ready to harvest, so Nexes went with her and came back with two huge bundles.

Since Star’s family was doing the moving, Sam and almost everyone else was helping there, and then the Dees got to the shop. It’s been way too long since we’ve seen them! They’re thinking about moving up here and Nexes went with them to check out some property. We had June and Willow at the shop. That was fun to have some small people with us! They and Ashley eventually went outside to fly my pocket kite at just about the time that Mary got to the shop for Sewing Workshop.

Sam spent the *whole* day picking rose petals and buds! Those came to the shop not too long before closing time, but we were there until nearly 8pm working on things.

I’m going to put up some pictures of the furniture pieces that we have for sale with descriptions on Facebook, hopefully later today, since we finally have some prices on the pieces.

So I’m heading out in a few minutes to spend the day doing roses and then inventory. Fawkes is heading home and it looks like a bunch of the guys are going into the Valley to pick someone up, combining the two trips.

Oh, and I’m sorry I missed the Magick Section yesterday. I’m putting in two days worth of recipes to compensate!

The shop opens at 10am, but I’ll be there a little early. Summer hours – Thursday through Monday, 10am-6pm! If we’re supposed to be closed, but it looks like we’re there, try the door. If it’s open, the shop’s open!
