me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Off on an Adventure!

It promises to be a beautiful Fall day here in my MerryLand! The DH and I will be heading out shortly for a leisurely day of adventure in one of our favorite close-by towns, Fredericksburg. We'll be looking through the shops with different eyes today ... hoping to find some new stuff for our own shop. So, I guess this isn't totally a laid-back trip; we are also hunting for the business.

Which, by the way, is really kicking my butt.

Yes, I love it ... searching out the new products ... researching the stuff we know nothing about ... finding creative display ideas ... meeting the new customers and those that haven't visited the shop for eons (or at least before we took over) and then hearing their very positive comments ... it's all good.

On the other hand ... I'm doing little else. No blogging, minimal home maintenance, barely keeping up with my family and friends.

Did I mention knitting?

Okay, I know this is typical with a new business start-up, so I will try to remain positive. I'll get those damn dust bunnies soon!

    WOohoo! Nice to have you back, even temporarily!

    DH is always writing textbooks for entrepreneurs so I'm not surprised you (and Robyn!) have been rather busy lately.

    If you ever get the chance to post some kitty pr0n...
