Ignore the weather
Like many of you, I had an outdoor event on Saturday. I was driving down to Saxapahaw and the clouds got darker and darker and finally right before I got there, the rain came. Of course.... Wesley was with me and we just pretended we didn't see the large drops of water hitting my car. I refuse to be defeated by the weather this year, I am mostly going to ignore it if at all possible!
It let up just a bit when I got there and then found out they had moved the market over to the Haw River Ballroom, which is a fantastic space, an old converted mill that is now a music venue.
The band got to play on the stage indoors, great for them, the sound system is fantastic. I had a choice to be inside or under the porch and I figured it would be better outside, so I set up right at the front door. I could see and hear the band and I had a lot of traffic. Did pretty well considering the weather.
My iris bloomed for Mother's Day, aren't they pretty?
Wesley and Gerry gave me a beautiful orchid. They also gave me a hand crafted cedar planter box from a gentleman at the Carrboro Farmer's Market. I have been looking at them for a year or more wanting to get one. I need to go out today and pick up some herbs to plant in it. I also need to get back to work in the studio this week. Finishing up the haiku barn, it's coming along very nicely!
Happy week, all
