My friend was having some minor health issues this morning, so I got to use the whole farm market space today. It was really nice, even with the big crowd today.
Normally, when I'm crammed into half the spot and it's crowded, my sales are down. Today, with not being cramped, my sales were more than triple what they are when we're both there and it's crowded. That was even with my cell phone updating and not connecting to the mobile network any more! (I lost 3 sales over that, and one was over $100. I am NOT happy with cell company "v" right now
All in all, though it was good. The new baby blankets weren't as popular as we thought, but I did sell two of them. Considering how hot it ended up being, that's not a big surprise. If it were cold, they would have sold more. It did let us know we have a good price for them.
I was feeling kind of "eh" after the market, so I came home and just worked on shawls this afternoon. Tomorrow, if it's as lousy of weather as it's supposed to be, I'm going to just work in the shop. There's no real point in going out and drowning, rofl.
So, the sales would be nice, but wet isn't worth the extra work. I'll get more done in the shop making more inventory. Socks, baby shoes, embroidered bibs, baby blankets, and embroidered towels. So many things need to be made!
And I've already gotten homework assignments for the classes that start next week?!?! Yeah. I have to write a report on the greatest guitar player of all time. I don't like guitar music and I really couldn't care less about it, but I'm evidently going to waste several hours researching guitar players. Ugh.
When I saw the assignment, my first thought was "my mother in law" and the "why" is because she is an awesome person, I love her, and she plays guitar. What song she performs and what makes it important is a whole different thing. Why am I supposed to have an opinion on this? And why should anyone else care what my opinion is? I don't really care what guitar players people like. I pretty much feel like "not my circus, not my monkeys" when it comes to people and their music choices. Sigh. I will do the grown up thing, do the report, and make it clear that I really don't like being forced to form an opinion and defend a position that I really don't care about. It's not like it's human rights or anything that has any real impact on my being a good person. It's just playing the game to amuse the instructor. Ugh.
I will be SOOOO glad when I'm done with these "general education" classes. It would be different if they had any real application for me, but they don't. All they do for me is waste time I could be spending doing other things, like studying for my classes that actually apply to my field!!! Total waste of money, too. But it is what it is, rules are rules, and it's their game, so I don't have much choice. I've already decided that I am totally fine with C's in classes I have no interest in, so I'm not killing myself to get this one done. I will do my best without exhausting myself or neglecting other things. If that earns me an A, great. If it gets me a C, oh well. It is what it is.
If I can find my swimsuits, I'm planning to start going back to the pool, too. It's much easier when the market season is over to make time to get into the gym. We'll see how things go.
For now, I'd better get some sleep, I've been up since 430.
