How Are You Today?

DJ Trailers can I help you? Sloan knows just what to say...he is so funny as customers come in he will often ask them "How Are You Today?"...guess he's already a lil' salesman.

Sometimes this lil' fella comes to work and he does enjoy setting at PaPa's desk doing some paperwork and answering the phone. I wonder when he will figure out about paychecks....for now he's content with highlight markers!

Friday's are usually work days for me. I try to work two days a week and my sis "Sherry" handles the rest of the days. It works out good for both of us.
Today it looks like we will be in for some rain...finally the winds have started calming down. The lil' blue farmhouse is where our kids grew up and our son and family live there now. There is a little farm pond out back that some evenings you'll find Dan and Sloan fishing.

So what do I do at work....let's see...bookkeeping, stitching, taxes, rug hooking, trailer titles, applique, answering the phone, update blog, needle punch, okay it's not all that bad is it!

So what do I keep inside the black bag...well it's my grab and go bag...filled with projects that are already cut out and ready to be made into little quilts, pinkeeps, appliques...whatever!

I'm one of those gals that doesn't like to sit without working on something. Here's a peek at what I've been working on so far today...It's little pinkeeps by Whimsicals.

Danny and I will be heading out for Springfield, Missouri this evening to deliver a load of trailers. I'm hoping we will get there and drop them off in time to visit Simply Fibers in Springfield and then make a trip up to Saltbox Primitive Woolens tomorrow. Oh and Pro Bass Shop in Springfield sounds good too....I think I just might need a little something there for my fishing buddy!

Happy Trails....Ginger

It is nice that you are surrounded by your family and share the history of the land. Love your flower pieces, I have not made those yet.

Sounds and looks like a dream job to me! I'm thinking Sloan is going to be a natural in the business world! Love those little pinkeeps! Great idea to have a grab and go bag... might just have to make one for myself! Though I might just need one of those ones with wheels that can be pulled behind me! LOL! Soooo many patterns...

Better hope the lil' man is content with highlighters for quite some time.
They grow up way too quick.
As for your sounds just perfect.
Enjoy your trip and hope you get to go shopping.

I'm like you. I can't stand to sit and do nothing!
I hope you got a chance to stop at the shops and if you did, will you share with us your goodies?
