Life at the St Lawrence Market

2013 Calendars

I'm tired.  Selling my wide selection of merchandise every Saturday always wears me out.  Of course, only having had only four hours of sleep might be another factor could be that I just had a Percocet and Gravol to deal with the excruciating neck/shoulder/lower back pain I get every Saturday. 

This is not a long entry ....

As usual, I had a chocolate/banana/peanut butter crepe while an accordion player and guitarist played very badly on either side of me.  (Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Kill me now!)

I did pretty well today.  Getting over $100.00 is fantastic for January.  January usually sucks the big one in terms of sales.

My customers seemed extra nice today, maybe because of the weirdly temperate.  I was so glad to see one of my regular customers and his wife.  They told me that, coincidentally, someone had bought one of my paintings and had given it  as a Christmas present.  They told me that they had loved it and had put it in a place of honour, which pleased me to no end!

And then, somewhat sheepishly, they told me a very funny story about their cat.  Not only do they walk it on a leash, they also put "angel wings" and let it climb trees with this costume on.  People, especially cat people, (including me!) are so weird.

I brought my iPad with me to the market today to do work.  I'm so happy that I got 99% of my emails finally written.  And, I set up three appointments to interview people as prospective employees.  I like getting on top of things; it makes me happy.

I was going to go to a wedding today, but because of difficulties beyond our control it didn't happen.  Well, it did, but just not with me.

I was going to go see The Hobbit after the market, but I was too exhausted.  Maybe I'll go tomorrow.   I have such such fond memories of Mom reading that book when I was a teenager.
