Oh yes it's Ladies Nite .....

My honey, selling our wares.

Well last night was our annual Ladies Night at Home Hardware. There were over 170 ladies in that store. Ugh. Think packed, think sardines, think claustrophobia! Ack!!!! But it's for a good cause. I was helping David S. with the spin 'n' win in the greenhouse part of the store. Brrrr....It was our first snow of this year. Just a small sprinkling but cold none the less.

Part of our Christmas room, The photo doesn't do it justice.

All the ladies enjoyed themselves, games, deals, and food served to you by men on platters. Uh, wait, I mean the food was on the platters, not the men. That's the French coming out of me.

We even had Scrooge!

Every year, Theresa the floor manager and organizer of this event also asks local artisans to set up tables to sell their wares. So I asked if Dave could come and sell my Epicure and soaps. It was excellent exposure. We sold about a dozen soaps and some spices also. He's also going to a craft show this Saturday. I'd go but I'm working.

Watch out! She's really vicious!

On another subject. Tundra "the wonder puppy and protectress of the goat herd" has some bad habits. She nips and she keeps putting herself between you and whatever else it is you're trying to get to. It's very annoying. Any hints on the nipping would be appreciated. When she's putting herself in front of you I'm wondering if she's just trying to protect you from what she thinks is a dangerous situation (I mean washing dishes is a very dangerous occupation. Nothing worse than dishpan hands!) or just being a pain in the patootie. Any suggestions? I mean she is a Great Pyrenees, it's bred into them to protect their property (and we are technically her property).

On a down side, Dave's mom was put into a seniors home last week. Her husband couldn't take care of her anymore. Her Alzheimer's was getting worse. It's been very hard on him and Dave. But it had to be done.

On a happy note, I entered a blogger's contest a few weeks ago and I actually won! I was so excited! Thank you Rural Revival!! Also Annie at Cariboo Valley just loves Dave's goat house.

Well I think that's about it for tonight.

Have a Blessed Day!


  1. Hi,
    Do you sell a lot of soaps? Your dog looks cute but I don't know anything about that breed. My hubby's mum had alzheimers too, it is a terrible disease.
    Have a great week!

  2. How exciting to sell some soap. I remember when I sold my every first bar. Sorry, don't know what to tell you about the big puppy. I have never been around herding/livestock dogs. Only dobermans.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
