A coat for Tucson

On our way out here, Mark noticed a couple of times that Tucson was shivering with cold. He said he’d like to get a coat for her, so I’ve been looking. A week or two ago, I found a dog coat that was labeled Extra-Large, but when we tried to put it on her, it was too small. I thought I was going to have to make her a dog coat, so I went to Goodwill today to look for something I could adapt.

Short fuses all around

Over the weekend, Mark and I didn’t get to bed before midnight either night. I was staying up late to process the pictures I’d taken each day and to write my blog. I don’t know what Mark was staying up late for. Whatever our reasons, this is not the best thing for us to do.

From Klamath Falls, OR

Mom and Mark and I headed to southern Oregon today to visit my younger sister, Lauryn, and her family for the weekend. The family consists of my brother-in-law, Rob, and my nephew, Nate, as well as my sister. Also here are Rob’s daughter-in-law, Cynthia, and his young grandchildren.

Liberty Grove Historical Society Vintage Market – 2

Today was the last of two Vintage Markets held at the Liberty Grove Historical Society Museum. Last month, I tried to sell some of my Halloween kits; this month I tried to sell Thanksgiving and Christmas kits. I also carried over my Wanda’s Journey line and sold two of those, and I took a bunch of wooden hoop frames and sold several of them. I only made about half as much as I did last month. 🙁 One plus is that I finally figured out how to use the Square I bought for taking payments through my Etsy website. It was kind of nifty!

Out and about

This weekend was the Marina Fest in Sister Bay, and BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse) had a booth there. Yesterday morning, Mark and I had to get up an hour earlier than usual so that he could set up for it. He rode his motorcycle there and I brought the pickup with the tent and tables. On the way there, it poured down rain and he wasn’t wearing a helmet, so he got soaked! He was going to set the tent up by himself and it would be two hours before the rest of his group showed up. I came back later to have breakfast with him at the Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast. And then, yesterday afternoon, he took off for an overnighter at Reedsburg, WI where there was to be a Legacy Ride today.

A day in the park

It seems we so seldom get a perfect day in Door County that when we do, we just have to do something outside. Mark and I had thought about working on our crafts when we got home from church, but the sun was warm, the humidity was low, and there didn’t even seem to be any mosquitoes out!

GEODC tour

My boss, Mickie, at the Door County North Welcome Center (visitor center), paid for herself and a co-worker named Vickie and me to take a four-hour tour this afternoon. Just before I left home to pick Vickie up and head to the trolley station in Egg Harbor where the tour was going to start, Mickie texted Vickie and me and said there was a tornado watch for Door County and she said we didn’t have to go on the tour if we didn’t want to. Both Vickie and I opted to continue as planned.
