Etsy says “Visits increased 4440% compared to the same period last year.” Wow. I suppose that is true. Nothing much was happening for me last year. I got another 5 star review from the Kinkajou owner. We will see what Christmas brings. I am hoping to have some time to prepare when school stops.
I am making Pokémon pet carriers of all sizes. I think they might sell well. We will see.
I have been having troubles with zoom. They made me get a school computer. It seems to not be able to authenticate who I am without it. This is a bummer because my own computer is set up to have a virtual background and the school computer cannot handle a virtual background. Now I have a folding panel that I can put behind me. Oh, the money that I put into things that never pay back.
My husband has 129 t-shirts hanging in the laundry room. I picket out 9 that I thought he could live without. He rejected my picks. I don’t know what to do about this. There must be some club for wives of husbands that want to keep everything.
There is now a hole in the wall behind the dryer. No big deal. At least the faucet outside can now be turned off!
I had trouble with plumbers not calling me back. I finally hired the one who actually came out and did an estimate. I hope it turns out well. They will need to cut a hole in the wall to see what is happening with an outside faucet. Right now we cannot turn the out side faucet off, so it needs to be fixed. Currently we take care of it with shut off valves on the hoses. This is not going to work when it’s freezing.
I don’t know how busy it will be for my shop at Christmas time. Last year I was just getting started and not selling much. Hopefully it will all be good and I will be able to keep up. I need to work in an extra thing here and there so that I have inventory. While waiting for the kinkajou project material to arrive I completed one of the items I sell most of.
I have been making apple pie, apple crisp, and drying apples. There are still more apples to be dealt with. The dried apples are super good. I leave the peels on for drying. Today it’s apple pie again…
Now when you select an entry on the left it doesn’t show up as white on a white background! It’s now white on a blue background. That means you can actually read it!
Today Romeo is going off to do more shows. It’s like a vacation, only having one dog for awhile. Sometimes I don’t know why I wanted a second dog. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I had forgotten how difficult puppies are. I am looking forward to him not being a puppy anymore.
