On days like this, I just like to stay inside and work on getting more socks listed in my Etsy store. I also started a new ArtFire Store to further promote my socks, rugs, hats and other fiber products.
I can now accept credit cards!!!
I have signed up with ProPay,
so I have more options with my customers who don't care to deal with Paypal.
I can accept payments from folks with Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express!
Saturday morning started out with a fun task. Steve and I went down to our son Dan's house to help him put in a new vanity and sink and lights in his bathroom. Daughterinlaw Heather and I supervised and ordered some pizza for a lunch treat.
Little Allegra was the plumber's helper and she decided she had to assist, and took a screwdriver to the vanity cabinet! (we took it away before she could scratch anything) What a good helper-girl and she will soon need her own toolbox! ---hint to Santa---
While the guys worked on the plumbing job, (with THREE trips to Home Depot) we women hung out and cuddled Allegra, talked "new-baby-to-come" talk, and watched some kiddie videos on the tv. Little Allegra kept us entertained with her antics, and Tiger the sassy Grandpuppy was into tons of mischief himself. He kept grabbing my balls of knitting yarns and taking off with them.
The cute little stinker had to learn to knit too, and was busy busy busy with some needles and ball of yarn. She also put some finishing touches on a camo hat that I knit up. Sooo enthused to be just like her Granmuddah?
Just look at that concentration on her little face?
Now for the last part of my title of today's blog...
a NEW MOTORHOME????
Not for us----- (fooled ya, huh?) but for our friends Sharon and Fred! They ordered a brand spanking new Tiffin Open Road motorhome right from the factory! It was delivered up to their dealer in Wausau this week and they went over on Friday to learn about it and take it home. What a beauty!!!!
We stopped by on our way home from Green Bay to give it a gander. Whewwww what a sharp looking rig!
We caught them in between loading it up and visiting relatives coming over to take a gander at it. They have three slides, all ceramic tile flooring throughout, a great floor plan and all LED lights inside. It's a sensible layout with a lot of nice amenities. The color combo inside (French Roast) is the nicest of the 3 choices they had, and really is a good decor. Sorry I didn't get any inside shots, we were too busy oogling! When ordering, Sharon insisted on adding a gas oven, and deleted the convection/micro combo and just have a micro. (that is what I would do too) We oogled and awed and explored their rig from top to bottom. We are sooo happy for them to get back on the road again this winter, and they are planning to escape very soon.
I am trying to talk them into going camping next weekend before they depart to the South for the Winter. If the snow melts, that is. The warmth of Sat and Sun has really taken it's toll on the snow, as you can see in the pics. So who knows, we might have one more camping weekend yet for 2011!!!!
Congrats Sharon and Fred on your new rig----
may you travel many many happy miles in it!!!!
