Still hanging out in the glow of Christmas, but I need to get cracking first thing Monday. I have a stocking order and a candle order to get out. Etsy has been a blessing to me this year. More people are finding the shop. Since I will no longer be working at the church, I needed to find an alternative source of income. Etsy seems to be providing that. I have had an Etsy shop for several years, but this year it really seemed to take off.
Yesterday was my last mass at St. Mary. I did pretty well until just afterwards when several people came up to me and were crying. Amy - a teenager was having a specially hard time. She is a sweet girl with a very large heart who has not had things very easy. One of my cantors also came up and that was hard. I am hoping that my core group and I will stay good friends. They are special ladies and were a large part of the reason I stayed as long as I did. After Mass Valerie and I decided to go to breakfast. We called Harold and he joined us. After coming home, I fell asleep in my chair for several hours. I also woke up late this morning.
I spent the day finishing up some Christmas gifts that I needed to deliver today. Made some candles for an order. Did some straightening in my craft room so I could justify spending some time at the quilting machine. 15 minutes of cleaning justifies an hour of quilting - right?
