Happy Bastille Day!
It's that middle of the summer time when I'm having my morning coffee with the live Tour de France coverage on tv, just so I can peep at the castles, churches and French countryside. And I spent the weekend in West Seattle, having breakfast at Bakery Nouveau before I opened up my little tent, sampling the baguette sandwiches, almond croissants, and a fresh salt caramel macaroon. So delicious.
This evening I'm going to meet friends at the Bastille Day festivities over at Cafe Campagne - snackies and wine and live entertainment this afternoon to celebrate all things French. Oh how I wish I had the whole day off to relax, sip and recharge after what seemed like the longest weekend ever.
But I've got a huge list of things to catch up on, soap to make and inventory to get started on for the next weekend of shows. I'll be at Kirkland Uncorked this week. I had it in my head for weeks now that it was just a 2 day show - an teeny little respite between three other back-to-back 3-day weekend shows this month. But I'm a fool. It actually starts Friday - but it's afternoon hours only, so we set up mid-morning instead of Thursday night. Is that a break? Well today it isn't. It's a harsh reality that again I have only about 2 days to get ready for this next bonanza and there is never enough time to do everything there is to be done.
I'm going to self-edit here and stop the whining. It's another gorgeous summer day, and I have plans to have to fun later, and I just need to get cracking.
