New Moon in Taurus!
I woke up early again and didn’t go back to sleep. I’m not sure why. I’m still pretty tired. When I got up the view outside was very twilight blue. Now, it’s simply dim and green. Supposedly the sun got up about 10 minutes ago. …The clouds are breaking up. No sky is visible, but a lot of the clouds have turned to a pale gold. …No, there’s at least one small clear spot….
Yesterday felt like a long day. It wasn’t, but you wouldn’t have known it from the way I felt. Sam and Fawkes went to the shop to open and pick up a little. Fawkes came back for me a while later, after I had gotten the newsletter out. We spent quite a while putting things away and cleaning up, then Sam came back home to get the planter cut out. He finally came back around 6 and they got it started, but they’ll finish it on Thursday, I guess.
I got the new orders checked in first, then spent a lot of the day going through the inventory and finding the things that needed to be checked on. Some have sold, some need to be ordered (and I did one of those, too), some just need to be tracked down and put into the right place. I had a few that needed prices either added to the inventory file or to have tags put on, since the originals vanished. I also spent a while setting up bags….that’s a *pain*, but getting business cards and ads and coupons into the bags before I’m talking to a customer and bagging an order works *much* better than the other way around.
We had a lot of people in today, some who had come quite a distance and then had to find us. Apparently the re-direct sign is no longer on the window at the old shop! Without the signs up at the new shop yet, that’s an issue. Well, the planter/sign box should help with that.
We’re getting a lot of people who comment that they’re glad we’re in Waldport.
When we finally got home we scraped together a casserole and settled down to watch Witches of Eastwick, something that we had promised ourselves a while back.
