This week has been so incredibly busy and filled with so much life. Today I do feel like I am sliding in sideways. Emilie and Nik went down and got the marriage license yesterday. My other daughter and her family are moved in their new place in Arizona. This weekend we start planting flats and flats of flowers. The invitations go out next week and Em's wedding shower is next week too. I did manage to get a rug finished this week.
It is the first of my chicken rugs. I need to finish the edges, and then it will be all finished. Hooking is so comforting and quieting to my mind.
I also wanted to mention a new business for my friends who live here in Bakersfield. My very good friend and book dealer Robin just opened a new book store. It is called Bookhounds It is located at 4000 Fruitvale Avenue, Bakersfield Calfornia.
When I was home schooling the kids I bought most of my books from Robin's garage. That was where her store was then. I am so excited she has a brick and mortar store now. I will have to go visit very soon. I have so many of her books I bet they still have the prices in them from when I bought them years ago. She was such a good resource and every thing I ever learned about books collectable and rare books I learned from her. Not to mention she is just around the corner from me and I could walk there and hopefully not carry books home like I used to do.
