So, I don’t know how it’s going with you, but I’m now ready for this week to come to an end. First, I dropped a 20 pound wooden box filled with spices – ON MY HEAD. Crazy! I have a big lump on top, and my neck is achy, and I’m a little dizzy when I lean my brain too far from vertical in any direction- but at least there was no bleeding. Oh, I did manage to catch a grapefruit-sized bruise on my leg. Yay. Hey, the box did not get dented or smash to the floor! The spices were saved!
Then, a couple of days later…I locked myself out of the house. No spare key. No cell phone. Like I would have any idea who to call. Thank goodness I found one window unlocked. After propping open the window with a convenient stick, I had to climb under a storm window and over a very pointy-ish aluminum frame. With my dizzy head. Yay again.
I think it will be a very good weekend to stay home, in one position. After a trip to the hardware store for a spare key. But not YOU – You need to come down to our sidewalk sale. The tent is in place, and the skids, and they are loading in the merchandise – I hear that some items are priced so low we’re arming staff with super-soaker water guns in case the frenzy gets out of control! The fire department does not want us using extinguishers after…well, they just don’t. The sale starts at 9 a.m. tomorrow and goes right on through til 4 p.m. Monday.
Also, don’t forget about the book signing with Sevier County author Nita Fox and Christmas Place artist Andrea Wallace! Captain Benjamin Dale would make a perfect stocking stuffer for any little readers on your Christmas list.
Be careful out there, people. It’s a crazy mad wonderful world! And it’s almost Monday!
