"Fatigue is the best pillow" ~ Benjamin Franklin

I am worn out. My feet hurt, my knees eyelids hurt. Going to bed too late, getting up too early, and standing on a hard floor for hours will do that to you. The big yearly craft show is this weekend. I was in line at 4:30 yesterday and it took two hours to even get parked at the location. You see, this craft show is held at our government base. So, they must be very careful about letting all these vendors with their trailers full of 'stuff' onto the base. We were brought in by batches, then we had to get out of the cars, open all the doors and hoods and stand back. They let the dogs sniff them out and then we were allowed to move along to the actual building.

At least today is over with. Just another four hours for tomorrow and it will be all over with. We did ok today. No one bought any of the wreaths I made (see below posts for more details about those wreaths). Lots of people stopped and looked at them, noted how cute and clever they were..but no takers. I wish I would have sold just one..maybe then the sore feet would be worth it.

Ah well. I'm off to bed. My eyelids are drooping as I type.


  1. I know how you feel! Only I teach and work retail, so I am on my feet constantly!! I am glad you got through the check point and get to show off some crafts!

  2. i wish my eyelids were droopy. i drank too much tea and now i can't sleepy.

    that is a beautiful portrait.. who is the artist?
