Wonderful suggestions from you, dear friends, along with a fabulous event-filled weekend has indeed shaken me from my blues. Thanks for your kind words of support while I'm on the roller coaster that is moving across the country with no preplanned job. Things seem to be working themselves out... more on that to come. For now, I'd like to revel in the giddy happiness that was my weekend. Thanks for playing along. It all started with the arrival of the sweetest package from my sister-in-law, Jennifer:
Cinnabar? And fish? Oh, joy!
More love came in the mail when I happened across a little feature on my old neighborhood, Astoria, Queens, in September's Lucky Magazine. Site and Loveday 31 (see my sidebar), two wonderful shops that both carry sulu-designs, were mentioned. Yea, Queens!
And while sulu-design earrings were not the hit I'd hoped they'd be at the Alberta Street Fair, my set-up there allowed me to spend Saturday hanging out with one amazing group of women, from the staff at Tumbleweed and Grasshopper (including the lovely Abby), to blog friends who stopped by, like Laurie and Andrea. And with the support of my good friends Holly and Mike, I barely noticed the... um... not-so-stellar sales.
Things got even better on Sunday, when Barry competed in his first trail half-marathon and smoked it. Seriously, I think he even surprised himself with his awesome finish time. Our crisp day in Mount Hood National Forest was followed with a big dinner of my mom's special recipe Italian sausage and peppers - the perfect way to end my un-blue weekend. I hope your weekends were filled with bright spots, too. Another one comes again in five days!
