Whatcha Workin On Wednesday

What a wonderful time I had when I went home to Spooner, it was so nice to spend time with family and friends but I was on a dead run the whole time trying to fit everything in. I arrived in Spooner 5 pm Wednesday...just in time for my chiropractor appointment. I LOVE my chiropractor, Dr. Larson, I have been going to him for 20 years and he always makes me feel better. I tried to find someone around here in Rapids for emergencies but when I check around, they wanted $300 to get started, that's just nuts. I decided to always get an adjustment from Dr. Larson when I go home whether I need to or not :)

On Thursday, I went to Hayward to spend the day with my Mom. We decided to go to lunch at the Casino and have their lunch buffet. After we ate, we made the plan that we would each play $10 and then leave. Mom was playing her $10 in a quarter machine, I decided I would play my $10 in a dollar machine. I told Mom I would be right back after I loose my $10 which wouldn't take long. I walked around, picked out a machine put my first dollar in and won $240. I cashed it out and ran over to my Mom with my winnings....I was gone maybe 2 minutes, now that's the way to do it. My Mom was not so lucky, she lost her $10 and then we left. I am not a big gambler, I maybe go to the Casino 2 times a year if that. But I have learned if you do get lucky enough to win cash out and LEAVE!!!!! After the Casino, Mom and I headed to town to do some shopping and then I had to beat feet to Rice Lake for a massage appointment. My girlfriend, Shannon, has been giving me massages for about 20 years also. I go to her when my neck or hips start acting up...and for some reason, this winter my neck has been stiffer then a board. She has really helped me with this and I am SOOOOO glad I have her, she is a miracle worker!!!!!

On Friday, my family and I went to my Uncle Lavern's funeral. He was 89 years old and was my Dad's oldest brother, my Dad was the baby of the family. There were 13 kids in my Dad's family and now there are only 4 left, very sad. My Dad died of Leukemia 12 years ago....he was only 58 years old. I miss him and love him very much. He would have loved to see us building our new house this summer. He would have been over checking things out daily I am sure of that.

Friday night we all went out for fish fry at our favorite restaurant "Pair O' Lakes", it was delicious!!!! Pair O' Lake is where Brent and I went for our first date and also I worked there as a waitress for about a year and my Mom's band played there for dances on Saturday nights for about 15 years so Pair O' Lakes has a lot of history for us all.

I came back to Rapids on Sunday, my husband was going stir crazy sitting here in the flipper alone. He had an awesome dinner waiting for me when I arrived back here. He got on the Food Network site and found a recipe from Paula Dean for Fajitas click on the link and try them they were excellent!!!! He is so cute, he was such a busy boy running around the kitchen...I really am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband!!!!!

Well, it is now Wednesday and I have been back to work creating and cleaning. Above is a prim pinkeep I made yesterday. I have to put the finishing touches on it but all in all it is finished and I love it!!!!

I finished this the other night...I never make anything for myself but just got in the mood to do so. I loved this little gal and decided to stitch my business name in her cloth.....love it, just have to get it framed up.

Yesterday I pretty much spent all day cleaning and organizing my work space. WOW, things were totally out of control. I told my husband last week, I was spending more time looking for things then working...time to deal with that problem because I was starting to get frustrated.

Organized my shelves and fabrics, now at least I can find something :) What a good feeling!!!!

A few pictures of my re-organized booth at the Antique Mall In Spooner

I had to work at the Mall on Saturday, I learned a very valuable lesson that day. I cannot work on my booth while I am working. We were SOOOO busy and it is hard to help customers and organize my booth. My booth spent most of the day out of commission because I had it all torn apart most of the day.

Finally finished, I didn't think I would get everything in my space...but I did :)

My sister came home for our uncle's funeral so it was so nice to get to spend time with her while I was home. She also brought some prim bunnies she had finished up last week. It is so nice to be able to share this prim journey with her. She also helped me on Saturday for a couple hours while I worked at the Mall, I appreciated that very much!!!!

Added a few more items to the bench. My sister made the cool rooster....LOVE IT!!!!

My sister's cats on top...love them!!!!

A VERY FULL booth

More goodies

A chair FULL of goodies

I LOVE this display.

And last but not least.....a look at one of my girlfriends very FULL displays.

As you can see, I have had a VERY busy week :) Stop over to Leslies blog and share with us what you have been up to. Have a Blessed day everyone...Rhonda

Rhonda,
Sounds like you had a great trip home :)

I think maybe the reason I don't sell my stuff is I tend to make more for myself than others...lol That wouldn't work out so well, would it? Your stitchery is cute :)

Have a great day!
