Checking in…

A week ago I had the pleasure of spending a day with a family friend that I’ve not seen in years, and then last weekend some of our relatives from Sweden came to visit. It was great to see everyone.

I’m having some work done in the cottage the week of Sept 21 and will have to move everything out of the workroom for a week. I need to keep the shopping cart down until after that, but I will continue to fill orders via email for those who need things in the meantime. I won’t be able to take any orders, even by email, the week of Sept 21, so please plan ahead if you need something before October. I can’t believe how fast the summer is going.

It was well over 100 degrees here today. There is a haze on the horizon, sadly, from the wildfires in the area. No fires are dangerously close to us right now, but they are close enough to cause a smoky haze in the air. Everything is so dry; we really need rain this winter in CA.

Editing to add a note: If you will need an order during Sept 20-28, talk with me ahead of time and I could pack your order ahead to ship on the appropriate date. I’ll have access to email and could ship during that time, but I would need to pre-pack the order before Sept 20. I’ll have the lab back up and running after Sept 28.

  1. I hope the repairs go smoothly. I wish I could funnel our copious rains your way. We are flooding and you are dry. It hardly seems reasonable. But then I guess Mother Nature does her own thing. Praying you stay safe and get rain soon.
