|Packard Hood Ornament by Marcheta Gibson|
"Weebles Wobble but they Don't Fall Down". Now that's a smile right there, isn't it? :)
And the slogan is perfect for describing me at this time. I had a TON of work all at once that I had to toggle back and forth, most of it unplanned and at times I did indeed feel like falling down (collapsing, actually!) from the weight of it, but just like the roly-poly weebles, I am still standing, and able to rest well tonight because everything that needed to get done is done and arrangements that needed to be made are made.
Usually Jim helps set up and/or pack up for the farmers markets, and then goes on his merry way. Today he is flying solo in Bucyrus and manning the apple stand without me because I am at Heart of Ohio Cruise-In in Mansfield, where my photography is on display at Niabos Art Exhibition Gallery.
And..to make the day even fuller, my nephew is getting married. I will have to miss the ceremony but am hoping to see the happy couple at their reception.
WHEW-WEE ~ makes me tired just reviewing all that has gone on in the past two weeks!
Here's how it went down:
Hood ornament photography: post production in Photoshop, printed (at home on my Epson 1400 wide format photo printer), framed and/or packaged, priced, descriptions written, greeting cards made:
Three art pieces framed, paper work done, ready to deliver on Monday to Mansfield Richland Public Library for the Apronistas: Hidden Pockets exhibit: Check
Apples and pears: sorted, bagged, labeled, priced, money box prepared, support materials packed: check
Apple sauce and peach butter: made and in freezer: Check
Blabbing on this blog: only missed one day, so...how about a 99% check?
Laundry and dishes...not so much..... BUT the bare necessities are covered, so let's at least give me a half-check :)
When the dust settles after the car show, I'll know that it was all worth it, and like the lines that I wrote for Song of the Hood Ornament (to the tune of Singing in the Rain), I'll be, smilin' and singin' in the wind!
Actually, I know it now!
