Playin' Hookey

Mom used to say to me (and sometimes about me): "You can't keep a good woman down!"

Yesterday it snowed and snowed and snowed.  By late evening, after a full day of swearing in my mind about the weather, knowing that there would be no way I could get to the market in the morning if the sidewalks and curb-cuts hadn't been cleared, I decided to just stay home.

So, I played hookey from the market today. This sounds as I was a lazy, idle person.  Not on your life!  Knowing that I wouldn't be making my much needed income, I decided to be pro-active and work on some things which would pay off later on.

I designed and ordered more cards (also mugs and pens), packaged some merchandise to be mailed off, and I finished the painting of the Siamese cat Sansa.  Oh yes, and I organized my business receipts.  I'm hoping I'll get a HUGE tax refund this year.

I also communed with my animal buddies. Hershey licked "Yucky Drink" from my index finger, Oyster licked peanut butter from my thumb, and Rascal just sat there looking cute as usual.  They all whispered in my ear that I needed to paint them as a trio one day.  I agreed!

While I painted, Laura organized all my note cards and merch. She also put one copy each of all of my membership info cards into a binder. I love Laura so much! We have the same OCD for things like that.

All in all, it was a very productive day.
