This is not a post as much as it is a "newsletter" this time around. I've been gone so long, I must catch you up on the goings on of the last 2 months.
Since I wrote last, I've had another birth day celebration. This year I worked the Kingsport Farmer's market, since it was a Saturday. It was a really nice day. Friend of mine from the market took me out for a celebratory lunch. I had a pomegranate margarita. The old-fashioned margaritas are still my favorite.!!
I took a trip to south Georgia by way of Waycross with my son to spend a weekend with my never-have-met-before niece, Pam and her family. I met my half sister and half brother that night. Then, the next day, we all went to the family reunion I had never before been to on my mother's side of the family. I remet cousins I had met when I was 7 years of age. We connected first on Facebook in January and set the reunion up from that moment. It was an awesome culmination of combined energies on behalf of the cousins. There are pics of this reunion all over the internet - it was an emotional repast for everyone.And, most recently, I was invited to participate in a local TV show likened to a Regis & Kelly show, called Daytime Tricities on CBS (local Channel 11 out of Johnson City, TN) at 10 am. It was a live show and a lot of fun. Morgan King, the host, invited me, but he was on vacation when I did the show. Amy, his cohostess, was very charming. She flew through her paces with the show with grace and humor. It was fun interacting with her and her guest co-host, Bob. I have a video tape of the show, but I need to find out how to turn it into a DVD and upload it to youtube, so that I may share that 4 minute spot with you.
In the meantime, I take walks (even in this oven-like heat), I've put reading off for awhile as I feel I'm working two jobs - peddling and online venues, and I'm formulating ideas for more product. I hope to be back to posting a bit more regularly - and I apologize for my lack therein. I do have a week long fair coming up in late August where I demonstrate my product. This has become a traditional show - my 4th year. And, even though I do not re-enact soap making of yesteryear, I do show them how I make old fashioned soap the modern way. :)
