As usual, I've put off truly getting ready til the very last minute. My to-do list for today is ridiculously long -- packaging, labelling, price tagging, making great piles of display items in the dining room, awaiting the morning for shlepping to the car. Oh, and if I can squeeze it in, making another batch of soap too, since I'm perenially behind on that too. And place a couple of supply orders, get that order to the post office, blah, blah, blah. Why am I still sitting here in front of my computer?

Tomorrow is set-up day for both of them, and I'll be racing the highways getting everything in place. I hope the sun pops out a bit. It's been amazing watching my little garden explode this past week. It was just a few daffodils and some little noses peeking out of the ground, and almost overnight there are blooming trees, tall stalks, green stuff and of course a bazillion weeds. I'm still crossing my fingers that the fuschia plant (which had turned in to a rather large bush in the span of a year) will take hold in it's new place. I moved it Sunday to more spacious digs, and it's decided to curl up and droop precariously. I might have killed it. Which would be disappointing, but the prospect of having to shop for new plants is quite nice too. Cheerio -- I'm off to work zealously.
