It's been a long time......

I can't believe that it's been over a month since my last blog post. Where has the time gone? It's not like I've disappeared, it's just that each day flies on by and before I know it, I never accomplished what I set out to do.

Let's take a moment to catch up.

Let me see, what's been going on.......

Our customer appreciation day was great, but we had no electricity due to a bad storm the day before. That's okay, we did it the old fashioned way with actual paper slips, calculators and the primitive glow of candlelight! It was quite fun actually, and we had a great turnout for most of the County being without power!

Our online customer appreciation days were a HUGE success! I couldn't count how many packages we shipped out, but our Postmaster was grinning from ear to ear with the business that went through our tiny little post office! LOL! Thanks, it was so much fun!

My husband and I were able to sneak away for an overnight trip to Lancaster. My sister, Wendy, came over and stayed with the boys and also cared for our dog and cat. (We adopted a cat by the way, I think I forgot to mention it. And yes, they fight like cats and dogs, but it's slowly improving.) Back to the overnighter. It was wonderful! First time in seven (yes, that's the number 7) years! We went antiquing in Strasburg and brought home some beauties! My kitchen is now proudly displaying a late 1800's wide plank farm table with one drawer. Also got a dough trencher with handles in original red paint from the same dealer. I hardly look around anymore, I just head to this one man's booth in the Strasburg Antique Mall and that's all I need to see! ;-) We visited Eldreth Pottery and hubby bought me a stunning bowl to match my crock I bought last year with my sisters on a trip. We've been collecting their pottery for nine years, just about. Love it, and it's worth a look-see if you are in the area or check them out online. They are fabulous people as well! We stayed at the Historic Strasburg Inn which had kinda small rooms, but clean and quiet. We ate a lot, finished sentences without being interrupted, rode together in silent bliss, and enjoyed each others company. And what a joy it was to see two little boys running toward you when we pulled into the driveway at home. We are blessed!

Yes, we also did shopping for the website and shoppe. Especially for the website, and I will post pictures here as well!

That's about it, nothing too exciting, but sweet and simple as always, and just the way us Elliott's like it.

Many Blessings!
