Simple Ramblings From A Prim Cottage

The calm before

Saturday is supposed to reach 60 so I think I'm going to attempt a market and peddle some wares.People will be anxious to get out with all the cold we've had.Then the temps drop and maybe snow for tues. So yet another calm before the storm.I told hubby I'm just getting used to being cold all the time,really I'm begining to believe it will never end.Went to my first yardsale yesterday.It was in their house alot of good old stuff but they were kind of high and didn't want to budge.I did get a antique child's ironing board, a very rare antique book and a antique plunger that they washed clothes with in the 1800's. They will all go to market except the leather bond 1873 book will stay with me awhile.After market Brianna will come stay with me.Hannah is going to visit her mother but Brianna refuses and we are not going to make her if she doesn't want to.I try not to be negative at all about my sister around the girls but Brianna knows what she is and expresses it very often sometimes not in the best way.So we are all still tip toeing around the subject of her unexpected return and just hoping she is gone soon enough.Been a busy week I had a large candle order that kept me busy.So glad I no longer do wholesale.LoL.. I finally got a few made for me but they wanted them to..smile..Well girls Happy Spring! Hoping she realizes soon it's time for her arrival.~Amy

It was nice here today too...in the 60's, but we are going to get snow on Tuesday too. Hope that will be the end of the snow until next winter.
