Nose to the Grindstone

It's time for us to put our noses to the grindstone. We have another show coming up on March 12 & 13, in Bath, PA. Not very far from our home. The show is three years young, this will be our second year setting up our wares. Our show on Saturday in Long Valley, NJ went very well. Our first time setting up there and we look forward to going back again. Sold items that we had been carrying for awhile. But, now we need to fill in those blank spots on our tables. It was great to see so many people out and about, including some old friends who we did not expect to see. Lots of laughs, hugs and tears. We had a power failure this morning and boy I have just been out of sorts every since. I had to get ready to go out to the jobsite in the dark, maybe that is the cause of my blues. Still recovering from our early, early day on Saturday. We got up at 4:00 a.m. to be on the road by 5:30. Guess I'm not as young as I thought, LOL. Tonite will be a early night. It's raining, windy and slighty warm, go figure. Good night for a cup of tea and some Girl Scout Cookies, YUM. Take care one and all.

On Our Windy Way

We will be heading out shortly to Long Valley, NJ. We are able to load in tonight for our show tomorrow. We are not allowed to set anything out, but at least we can get all of our tables and inventory in. Then we head back out tomorrow before the rooster crows (like 5:30 a.m.) to set up for a 9:30 a.m. start. Show is until 4:30. Weather sure has been crazy this week, little snow, lots of wind, rain. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy President's Day

Hope everyone is enjoying their day off, if you have it off. If not, just enjoy your day anyway. We had a bit of snow overnite, so tired of snow. But, it's still Winter and it's February, seems like it's been Winter since Novemeber!! I do not have off today, but I won't be too busy, just don't have alot of work when you work in construction and it's WINTER, have I said that enough, LOL. We will start to get ready for a show this coming Saturday, it's in Long Valley, NJ. First time setting up. More info to follow on the show, etc.

Full Snow Moon

Well, after a beautiful day tonite we should be able to see the Full Snow Moon or some like to call it Full Hunger Moon. It is at this time that we could get heavy snow (Full Snow Moon) therefore making it difficult to hunt (Full Hunger Moon). I plan to check it out tonite, shouldn't be cold and I'm not going hunting, so what else do I have to do!! LOL. Have a good weekend. Off to work at a auction tomorrow, hope to score some good stuff, lots of shows coming up.

Good Morning Blog Friends, I know many, many of our retail shopkeepers are getting ready for Spring, some are even starting today with their Spring Market (hint, try and guess who). But, for some we still need to clear out the cob webs from Winter. So, starting tomorrow 2/17/11 through and including Monday 2/21/11 Weil Antiques Center will be holding their Winterfest Sale. Be sure to stop in and see what the dealers are offering!! We personally will be having 10% off everything in our booth, except for items marked "firm" which are not many!! Our booth number is 145. Weil has great hours, M-F 10 to 6, Sat. 10-5 and Sun. 11-5, so there are no excuses for not making it in, except I guess if you live in Iowa!! LOL. But, hey what a road trip it would be.

Weather Lore

So do you think Phil was right? Or, do you believe the Old Farmers Almanac? I enjoy reading the almanac, have for years. But, this year I say they have been a bit off. But, one standard weather lore which does not change from year to year is and I quote " One Fine Week in February". So, once we get through today (cold) here in Williams Township, PA, I believe we will have our one fine week. After that, it's anyone's guess. Hope you our having one fine day wherever you are today!!

Is Spring Coming?

Well, here in Williams Township it is above 32 degrees and birds are singing. And, speaking of birds the Redwing Blackbirds are staring to return to our yard. We have two males!! LOL. We have had one for about a week now and this morning I noticed the second one. Redwing Blackbirds are one the first birds to return to PA at the end of the Winter. They are sure hungry, so they must have being flying from a long ways off. Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday and Valentine's Weekend.

New Items on E-Crater

Good Evening Blog Friends. It's yet another chilly evening here in Williams Township, but the sun today was wonderful. So, while the sun was shining Les and I went up to our attic to go through our stash. We pulled down three totes of stuff of which most will be going on my e-crater store. Please check it out at the bottom of my blog. We have added some items and will be adding more over the next couple of days. If you are looking for anything in particular, let us know. You just never know what we have hidden away. Have a great evening and don't forget to check out my store.

Well, we turned the page on the calender to February, but we did not turn the page on the weather. I don't believe that there is anyone that will not be touched by this latest storm that is upon us. Though, by the blogs that I am reading we are all becoming old hands that this. We are all stocked up on the usual staples, bread, eggs and milk. Candles are at the ready, wood has been brought in, extra water is on hand. For some, their favorite garden books or magazines are spread out across the Kitchen table, cup of tea near by while they thumb their way thru Spring. While others have their handy work at the ready if the power should go out. For me, I decided that today will be the day I tackle the work/home office. Time to file papers (ugh), work on the books for the business and just tidy up in general. Whatever you are planning on doing this 1st day of February, be safe, stay warm and enjoy!!
