Ready for more of my random ways of thinking??? still no digital camera…can ya tell???
*my daughter is still in Texas on her missions trip. I miss her SO much, I can hardly stand it. It was bad enough by Thursday as it was, and THEN the phone call came in. She had been taken to the E.R. with heat exhaustion and dehydration!!! My sons first reaction was “Mom, we HAVE to go get her”. (only 14 hours away, but time and distance mean nothing to a kid huh??) We sat tight, and were reassured she was in good hands of a church member, taking the best care of her and got her where she needed to go. THANKS DIANE !!!!! She was given IV fluids, given a thorough check over, and dismissed. All is well now, except she has a little after effects of it all, and is still just not “feeling well”. She would insist she is NOT homesick, but as a mother, I want to think maybe just a teeny bit as well. Although, she is NEVER been the homesick type. Put her in a crowd of strangers, and she will find SOMEONE to be friends with before it is over . Bless her heart. The whole group arrives home on Sunday midday and we can NOT WAIT !!!!!
*Oskaloosa Hy-Vee sampling is being delayed a couple weeks. All good things come to those who wait. This will be worth the wait. Tentatively set for the last Fri / Sat in July. I will keep you posted.
*Ankeny Hy-Vee??? this Sunday. I will be sampling from 10:00 to 6:00. If you are anywhere near the area, stop by and introduce yourself. This will be really different for me! In Oskaloosa, I already know 90% of the people I see. Ankeny will be more like 99%, I will NOT know!!! Hopefully I will be more like my daughter in my FIRST random thought. A store full of people, SURELY there will be someone I can call my friend when I am done!!! 🙂
*Bright spot of my day today?? one of my favorite customers (ok, who am I kidding, ALL my customers are my favorites!!) honestly. But I will say, one that felt the need to move to California, gave me a phone call, saying she was in town and was stopping by to visit!!! yeah!!!! I was SO happy to see her!!! funny how you can come so close to a customer, after MANY years!!! It felt like I had just seen her last week, when in reality it has been a couple years!!! We sat on my screened in porch and she was even kind enough to let me do my other customers as they came in, and waited for me. Thanks Joan, you REALLY made my day.
*Flip-Flops. (is this random enough??) do you understand the evolution of the footwear now known as flip-flops?? when I was younger, we called them “thongs”. no more. Now as if “Flip-flops” are not good enough , there are also “Fit-Flops”. I hear these are wonderful, although I do not own any. Well……a couple days ago, I had THE COOLEST customer in my salon and her mother had “Switch-Flops” on. Have you ever heard of these???? They are SO neat!!! I want some and I want them now!!! there is a velcro piece on the strap part, and you can interchange then depending on what color you want the strap to be. I had to ask myself “Do I really NEED them???” of course, I do. Can you imagine how streamlined this could make our flip-flop collection??? instead of 10 different pair between my daughter and I , we could have 2 pairs, with some interchangeable straps. Can you day “Simplify” ???? Has anyone but me and these coolest customers know about such a thing??? let me know. I am on the hunt for two pairs now. :)
*my agenda for tomorrow is to do about 20 loads of laundry (a little exaggerated, but not much. If I had my camera, I would SHOW you!!!) and my goal is to do it withOUT the use of my dryer!!! the clothesline will be full all day long. I know Zoe is bringing home a big suitcase full of more dirty laundry on Sunday, so I need to get this weeks out of the way!!!
Enjoy your weekend, wherever it takes you, or whatever you find yourself doing!!!! may you enjoy it to its fullest!!!
I will even try to be LESS random next week. I am SURE there will be mission trip pictures to share with you, from my photographer daughter. :)
