I don't know about y'all, but it seems the older I get, the faster the seasons pass. I can't believe it's already the end of July. I mean good gravy y'all...weren't we just dancing under the firecrackers yesterday and now look...school will be starting again in just a few weeks. Whew! Somebody slow this train down so I can get off!
There's a lot of things I'll borrow...jokes, ideas, money...but two things I won't...trouble and time. Such a waste to worry about tomorrow when there is so much to do today!
Cat Daddy and I went to McKinney this past weekend to check out Patina Green's new shoppe (read about it here) then on to Athens to prettify my space.
Have a mentioned how much I love Winnie & Tulula's? I do! Gloria has done such a great job of bringing like-minded people together and except for the dirty job of rearranging things, it's a joy to be there!
We went to drop off a few things...move stuff around...shake it up a bit...ya know? Back to school sales may be just around the corner, but there's always something on sale in downtown Athens on the corner of Hwy.19! (FYI...there's also a farmer's market, across the street from the shoppes, selling on weekends now. How cool is that?)
Case in point...did y'all know the opening of the Sweet Pea Bistro is less than 3 weeks away? I Know! Y'all can't imagine all the work (not to mention hours) Gloria and Don have put in to make this happen. It promises to be a wonderful spot to land after a hard...hard...really hard day of shopping. She's carefully selected the menu, created a charming dining area and even taken the time to scatter seating for just sitting, sipping and sighing! Wait until you get a load of the desserts she has lined up...oh my! She's planning something special to go with the soft opening...so start making plans now for August 11. (Which btw...just happens to be the day after mine and Cat Daddy's anniversary...guess I know where he'll be taking me!) I love seashells and especially seashell art...can you tell? I started buying it years ago, but no one wanted it so I kept it. Now everyone wants it and I don't want to sell mine. Some things really don't have a price, but I do sell things I now find if that makes y'all feel any better. I'm going to be working this weekend on one of the windows at W&T's. I thought (emphasis on thought) I knew what I wanted to do, but that idea is just not coming together for me. So-o-o...it's off to put on my thinking cap and see what "Tom Terrific" idea I can come up with!
Well what do you know...wow...that thinking cap really works...just thought of something! If school is just around the bend, then that means Warrenton/Round Top can't be far behind...but more on that later!
