Up and off to meet another unseasonably warm day.
I was slow to get going this morning and felt like I needed a good breakfast not something on the run today so I sat down and had eggs and coffee before leaving for market.
I stopped by the Post Office on the way since I figured there would be no need to hurry. I got a call from a customer on the way that wanted the only caramel cake I had made so at least I will double last Thursdays total with one cake !!
Market was totally void of customers when I got there and stayed that way except for a very few lookers that wandered through.I did sell a lemon poppy seed bread of daughters and 3 lemon bars for me to fellow vendors.
I packed my things up and left just before noon. I ran the rest of my errands and picked up groceries and baking supplies at Aldi and Walmart. I also stopped by the Co-op and got a bottle of liquid vitamins to hopefully give me some energy as this time of year I always get that run down feeling.
I got home around 2:30 and unloaded then I started working on cleaning in my office. I ran across a couple bags of towel and pot holder sets that I had bought to make towel angels from. I didn't just want to move them to another location so I stopped cleaning and made towel angels until I ran out of washcloths. I made a total of   9 angels .
I haven't had any of these in a while because I couldn't find any towels on sale and the regular price of these sets has gone up so much I can't come out making them. I know these are some "on sale" sets from the price tags so at least I can get rid of some clutter out of my office and make some money too!
We did chores early tonight as I have another volunteer night at g-son's school for another family night.
I made hot chocolate from about 5:45 until 6:45 tonight for anyone who wanted a warm drink.
I also had nice visits with some old friends and teachers during the slow times.
This family night wasn't near as busy as the one in the fall maybe because the weather turned cold quickly tonight. It is already 36 degrees at 11:00 tonight with mid 20's expected overnight.
Hubbie kept g-daughter while #1 son took g-son to basketball practice and d-in-love left school and went to church to music practice.
G-daughter  was still here when I got home and got really sleepy and went to sleep before mom got here to pick her up.  Hopefully she will go back to sleep. She is cutting a couple teeth and isn't feeling well right now anyway.
Hubbie and I watched a UNC / Virginia Tech basketball game which UNC won pretty handily.
I feel like I am getting a sore throat tonight so I am headed to bed early to hopefully fight the bug off.
Thankful for the blessings of this day and for His never ending grace.
God Bless and Good Night

Sorry to hear you had such a slow day at Market. Love the towel angels - they should sell like hotcakes. Praying you aren't coming down with any kind of bug. I know this changing wether makes it easy to get sick. Have a great weekend. Blessings
