Daily Stuff 7-23-11

Hi, folks!

The sun shining through the windows is throwing shadows on the window of the clematis. The porch roof is dripping from underneath. I wish I understood why it does that. The feeder is busy with sparrows…the ones that I think of as speckled…. That’s not the right name for them, though.

I finally got the dehydrator started yesterday, so that the rosebuds will dry. That was an effort. There are still some petals sitting in trays on the table, but I should be able to get those prepped this morning. I’m running out of room in the drying baskets! Otoh, there’s a lot that’s dry enough to put by, now.

We had a lot of people in yesterday: customers and a reading. Dan and Kyle were at the shop for part of the day. Dan worked on the computer/printer. Hopefully, he’s fixed the problem and I’ll be able to start printing again. Thanks, Dan!

I never got out to the garden. I was pretty tired when Nexes and Fawkes and Raven got back and rather than sitting and talking when we got to the house, I went in to take a nap. Kit and Virgil showed up after I woke and we got to visit for a bit. They took a road trip yesterday and stopped just to say hi! Kit says hi to everyone. After that I started some dinner and when Sam finally got home we ate.

After that we watched Armageddon. Every time I watch that I cry enough that I get soggy. It’s a good movie. My Mom would have called it a full Kleenex movie, meaning that we would have used up a full box of tissues, crying over it!

We have 4 classes/workshops today. At 10am the Herbs Indoors session is supposed to be on making candles. I don’t know how far we’ll get. Infusions/Decoctions/Tinctures is at 11. We’re going to examine the stuff from last time. The Wands workshop (1pm) is going over to staves and Nexes is going to take folks out into the woods to get pieces to start with. Meet at the shop by 12:30. I’m hoping to get in a little work on mine since I have a perfect top for it, thanks to a gift from Fawkes. Sewing Workshop is at 3pm. As usual, bring projects or questions.

The young folks are back from their two-week vacation, so you’ll see them around the shop this weekend and the Sunday 101 class is starting the cycle with lesson one.

It looks like Wishpot has finally activated! It posted several pictures last night around 9pm from the Café Press designs. I have to fix the logo, though. It’s just the center part of the picture. That also means that I have to get back to work on some of the Spiral Goddess designs, since those aren’t nearly as done as I thought they were.

It looks like we have Tim, Yvonne and Veda this morning, and they’re here!

Don’t forget about the calendar/almanac special below! Today would be a good day to get those taken care of for this coming year.

The shop opens at 10am. 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!

Love & Light,
