Happy Monday, and I mean it!

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)
Mondays are no longer days I dread.  When I worked at Cerner, Monday meant getting up at 3 am to catch a 6 am flight to wherever I was being sent that week.  I always slept badly on Sunday night because I was so worried about getting up on time and getting to the airport.  

When the darn company moved me to the group from hell, and I hardly traveled at all, it was worse.  I would stay up all night long tossing and turning about having to go work with a "boss" whose apparent job was to make my life so miserable I'd quit.  She was definitely in the top 3 horrible bosses of my life.  Beware a blonde female boss in a techie world - chances are she got there because she is prettier than you are (if you are a woman), not because she is smarter.

Now, I just worry about how I'm going to break even on this farming stuff. Or even make a little money from it.  

We had our Farmer's Market Meeting on Saturday.  The pavilion the city was to have finished in time for the first weekend in May will not be ready.  So, that means I need to seriously consider purchasing a canopy for the first couple of months of the market.  Canopies are expensive. At least expensive in relation to the amount of money I earn at the Market - my best day last year was $57.00!! Of course, I know a lot more this year, and they are allowing me to sell my pottery and my mohair fiber this year.

Not only that, but I also need to purchase a scale that is legal for trade to weigh produce on. And, I have to take it to get calibrated.  Scales like that are ... expensive.

And on top of that, I have to come up with $175 for my little space in the market for the year.

Because I don't want to be continually taking money from our joint accounts for this kind of stuff, I'm going to try to make some money on Ebay by selling stuff we just don't need.  But, with the economy in less than wondrous shape, due partly to the constant woo is me crap about the economy by the Liberals in the Congress and by the President himself, it's not going to get better soon, so the prices are somewhat depressed.  But, since this is stuff I never bought for investment sake, just stuff I liked, I suppose that doesn't really matter.

And then, I'm also working hard to get enough photos, note cards and bookmarks made to sell at the Taste of Leavenworth this coming weekend.  I am going to mat some of the photos, see if that makes them more saleable. 

So, if anyone wants to help feed the chickens - I still have a paypal button on my sidebars, and they chickens, especially Darling, the tiny little Seabright chicken who flys up to my shoulder when I feed the chickens, will appreciate it!

Yes, it's a disjointed post, but I have a lot to do!!!!

And… you got your new faucet installed today.

We won’t mention the delivery delay that is going to stretch out that bathroom remodel.

But I did get the faucet in the other bathroom running free and clear again.
