Where I muse about just about everything...
From the weather in Texas, to my kids, pets, travel and friendships. Basically, about life. And oh yeah, about my Coquette Bath & Home™ products, too.
The previous entry was actually written two weeks ago. How is it, when I hit 'publish' sometimes it doesn't happen? It is okay. Really, it is. I am definitely not a 'techie'. I'll settle for just making great soap, lip balm and more, okay?
Last week, I went back to my alma mater, Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. It was a bittersweet trip. Of course, I'm years beyond graduation. And the campus has also changed, tearing down old buildings and putting up new ones. Moving fountains (!) and landscaping the entire place beautifully.
Purdue was cool when I was there, but it is at a whole 'nother level, now.
They also changed some streets to one way. Fortunately, finding that out the hard way wasn't as hard as it could have been....
And I'm still moving 'into' my new house. The first order of business was to try to get the product shelves up and organized. I'm mostly 'there'. But I'm now low/out on many products. Don't worry! More is coming, but if takes a few days longer than normal, I hope you understand.
Thanks to all for your faith, business and friendship. Have a great day!
Since it is May, time to put in my yearly 'we're on vacation' notice. Yep, starting tomorrow I'll be on a jet headed for some fun and relaxation.
Of course, that also means that during this time, I won't be able to ship. Dang minions. I keep trying to corral them, so that business continues to flow normally, but every single time I even THINK of taking some time off and away, they skedaddle, too.
All of this silliness is just to let you know that all orders received now through Memorial Day won't ship until after I return. Which is Memorial Day. Now you know!
In other news, we've moved. My kids and I lived in the same house since 2001, and now that they're both in college, momma thought a new house was in order. Well, I do love it. But DANG! How much stuff can one person accumulate? We did have some great movers. But, due to other issues (such as my painter not being done on schedule...) not everything got packed. And not everything got moved by them. Which basically means, I did it.
Yes, the kiddos helped. But one is back in college, and the other just finished finals. So, that left me to make the runs, back and forth, over and over, to bring the flotsam and jetsam of a family life from one hacienda....to another.
I did 5 trips this morning alone!
Anyway, thanks for reading. Thanks for being my friend and my customer. I do appreciate you! And I wish you and yours a wonderful Memorial Day!
Please take a moment to say 'THANK YOU' to a veteran or three. Without their sacrifices, we would not be able to enjoy all of the freedoms that we do, today.
