alas, alack, forced to take a day off in the midst of the holiday madness! luckily, yesterday, we worked like elves on crack getting all the holiday party work done. we delivered, customers picked up, people rushed in after hours for one last amaryllis or wreath. too bad we don't sell bread and milk, we could have been a one stop shop. a customer brought in his elf for us to fill, it turned out to be a gnome, but we filled it just the same. i've just caught up on my" blogs i follow " reading, and now i better go participate in this life i'm leading.
