I Have the Christmas Spirit
Oh yes, I certainly do know what you’re thinking….Seems a little crazy to me also. But to retailers – Christmas is upon us. I have ordered and received all of my Christmas supplies. My shop is filled to overflowing. And…. my husband’s garage, which he lost to me a long time ago, is stacked to the rafters. We have arms attached to every wall sticking way out into the middle of the garage, and they are filled with our wild birch wreath forms and birch baskets.
Tables run right down the center with open boxes of Christmas supplies stacked upon each other. Every one is open with little twigs of reds, greens, glittered treasures, and ornaments. Santa and Snowman heads, yes, and bodies are hanging out of one box, while garlands are hanging out of another. The shelves around the walls are full. It’s like walking into a very cold (no heat) winter wonderland.
It is so much fun now that we are designing our Christmas creations! We have about 6 new wreaths made and ready to list. That is, as soon as my computer expert, John, comes over this morning and gets the virus off my computer which I somehow managed, last night, to entice to join me! I am usually very careful, and never take a chance, but there was a free program that I wanted so very badly, that my greed took the place of my common sense, and yes, I got in trouble! A quick call to John at 8:30, and I was hearing a message saying…..flip the switch…..turn the whole system off, and don’t touch it until I can get there in the morning.
Boy, what a downer. I had a teacher coming over to give me my weekly class on Photo Shop, and after that I was all ready, with pictures already loaded to list all of my newly made wreaths. Shirley made these for me yesterday while I was typing away and working on my website, and eBay.
But, I am all ready to go this morning. It is 8 am, and Shirley is in the shop working away, I am working on my husband’s computer gettings shipping labels printed and orders answered while awaiting the computer expert’s arrival. I WANT and NEED my own computer back – I am totally lost without it!
OK, I know that is enought ranting and raving for this morning! Tee Hee Hee!!!
