Yesterday, while standing in front of a mirror doing me hair... I swear, just for a moment, I thought I could see my collar bones!

But...  I was wrong.

Cos, while they may be there SOMEWHERE, I still can't see them.  *sigh*

That is a big goal of mine.  To SEE THEM BONES again.  One day, probably next year, it will happen.

Till then.. I will stop looking.  I go cross eyed looking. lol

It's the Tamahere Market today.  Stew is leaving before me and starting the set up.  I have to drop Griffin off at work before I head off to Tamahere.

It's going to be a lovely day (weather wise), so we don't have to worry about rain.  That's a relief, as it usually rains on Labor Weekend!
Very lucky ... it's looking good all weekend in fact.

ABOVE:  My site today.  There's usually quite a few food stalls in this area, so maybe it will be good there, I just don't know.  *shrugging shoulders*

And now... I better get moving!  Probably going to overdress today... but it IS still cool in the morning!  And I can take layers off eh?


It's going WELL!

FINALLY!  A market day where I didn't FREEZE!!!  AND I made a decent amount of money too!

So ... very happy with today.  It was just lovely sitting in the sun... chatting with people, getting many, many compliments about my work.  *smiles*   Made the early rise worth it.

ABOVE:  Our set up today.  We had plenty of room, and although I wasn't sure about our position, it was just fine.

Now home, and about to have some lunch (2 pm already!)... Brylee is at work and Stew and Griffin have gone into Hamilton to do some shopping/get a haircut.

So, I'm home alone.  I can relax for a little while before tackling the next job.  Perishables shopping for my Birthday party tomorrow!

LOTS of Birthday Cards in the mail today... THANK YOU EVERYONE who sent me a card.

My Mum sent me some flowers too, Thanks Mum.

Well.. I didn't do the shopping.  It will have to wait till tomorrow morning.
Steve and Bex and the kids arrived.  
So some socialising, catching up.

Then I went into the sewing room and sewed for a while... I need to make a couple more things before Monday's market!

It's been a  long, but good day.
Happy to wind down now.
Catch ya tomorrow... when I turn OLD-ish!  *smiles*
