The Tour is Over

I’m so glad I did it and I’m so glad it’s behind me.  Much like child-birth I guess.  My house looked great for a few days and now things are getting back to their normal state of messiness.  I am keeping up on dishes and trying to make the bed but, how long will that last really?

The weather wasn’t great as it has been in previous years, but the rain held out and a few people walked around the gardens and to the gazebo.  I wasn’t at the house during the tour though.  I was manning our (my daughter and mine) booth at the local farmer’s market.  Considering it was the first day of the market ever and the weather, all went really well.  My daughter’s jewellery outsold my few sewn goods and she was very pleased.

The crowds through the house loved my store-bought Costco cake. (shh our secret)  I never actually said I made it but I did take the compliments.  I knew when I spotted it across the baking department that it would look good in my kitchen.  Tasted nice too.

Yes, a new counter top is in the planning stage.
