This week is crazy! I am so busy with the business and getting enough product made for the open house on Saturday. I so wished you all lived closer so you could come and enjoy some of my goodies with me by the fire on Saturday! Holly, I would love it if you could come (and bring friends!)
Yesterday one of the girls works for me (she's been with me for 6 years now....part time) came and we mixed and mixed. My Mom kept the boys. We made Momma's Roll mix, Granny's Cobbler, Heartside Coffee, MallowChip Cocoa, Crockpot Bean Soup, Onyon Dip, Orchard Cider, Cake in a Cup, Peachy Tea, Snowman Cookie Bar and Cheezee Country Muffin mixes. We filled over 250 jars and bags. I was totally exhausted! I also had appointments to make, calls to return about orders and the usual household tasks.
Today, I hope to get the usual household things done as well as run errands (CVS, Wal-Mart, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, gas up Durango, bank and post office). I need to get the tree fluffed and decorated and get all of the other decorations out. I will need to figure out how many of what labels to make and get them done as well. MY mother's helper will be here after school........thank goodness! I also need hubby to get more jars from storage, so I can get them in the dishwasher.
Wednesday:make Harvest Soup, Cake in a Cup frosting packs, more cocoa and get labels on all jars. I also have an eye doctor's appointment at 2 pm.
Thursday: deliver orders, p.o., make more bean soup mix and dilly dill dip mix. I also need to get all mixes in Christmas bags with labels attached. The Christmas parade is tonight! Also, a basketball game!
Friday: Deb will be here. I need to get the front porch cleaned off and decorated. Deb will be making baskets. I will be taking pictures for the store and getting it up and going. It will be ready for you guys on Saturday! YAY! I also need to make the demos that will be needed for sampling at the open house on Saturday. The cleaning lady and my mother's helper will be here after school too. Thank you sweet Jesus!
Saturday we will set up and have the open house from 10-2. Hubby will take the boys somewhere. Probably my parents or his Dad's.
I will collapse after that! Absolutely collapse!
If you don't see much of me this week that is why. Many Christmas Blessings!
