Home from Portland
Wow! Was it ever hot down in Portland, Oregon! When we left the bead show at 6 pm ( where were all the customers? ); it was 104 degrees! In Portland - in June - for pity's sake! LAst year for the same bead show weekend it was 66 degrees and raining. I thought I would melt! Anyone who knows me, knows I HATE the heat and besides my body is not built for hot weather and I carry my own weather system with me! UGH!
We had a fun time at the bead show and met really great customers. I swear, I never get tired of talking with my customers soon to be friends. I love seeing inspiration fill their eyes as they hold a strand of beads in their hand or the moment that bead lust takes over and the bead MUST be purchased. Ahh -it is a fun way to spend the day!
I have posted a funny picture of a cat that a friend sent me from way too hot Texas and I think his face looks like I felt on Saturday evening!
Okay, I surrender - I want to be done with summer! Now to sleep under the ceiling fan in my too hot bedroom, love, Lois
