WOW, I just realized that it has been over a year since I posted anything to this blog...please let me start by apologizing.
Now, let me tell you of all the very cool places we have gone to sell my lotions, as most of you know I love to travel...I think it’s the Gypsy Feet I post so often on Face book.. lol
We started the year in May at the Yakima Farmers Market and then off to Packwood for a much needed break and fun filled weekend during the Memorial Day Celebrations.
next we visited Mabton and Toppenish for their community days and then it was off to Grand Coulee Dam to celebrate the 4th of July...on our way through Electric City we stumbled across the best little BBQ place named the Tropical Pig, if you ever get to Electric City you have to stop and say hello to Rick and taste his wonderful ribs...after I filled up on BBQ we headed north to Chewelah and Chautauqua days...it was 107 degrees every day and all my lotion melted!... lol.... we still had fun and lots of people bought my lotions. Thank you to everyone for all of your support during the heat wave...you are all so understanding...lol
then we headed home (after another stop at the Tropical Pig, by the way I called ahead and ordered my BBQ to go this time and Rick came in on his day off and cooked for us...did I tell you I LOVE THE TROPICAL PIG!!!)
after a few days at home to clean the cobwebs and visit the grand kids we headed out again, first up the mountain to the Nile Valley Days and then back out into the desert to the Tri-City's and Richland’s famous Art in the park...rather, we are one of the outlaw Summer Sidewalk Squatters across from Jackson's Sports Bar..lol It was hot there too but after 107 in Chewelah it was perfect!
we stayed at the Moon River RV and let me tell you it is the best RV place we have ever stayed at...they have little grassy yards for each RV and a really nice pool...we stayed two extra days and I worked on my tan...lol...probably going to regret that, I know...no need to tell me.
after a quick rest at Moon River we hit the road for home and the following weekend attended the Moxee Hop Festival, I made a special coconut oil lotion just for that event out of hops!! lol...I think I am ahead of my time however because I could not even give that stuff away...lol...
Well, that brings us up to the present...I am home trying to catch up on bill paying and lotion making while Ken is trying to clean the house and trailer so we can hit the road again tomorrow.....
We are headed out to Westport’s Art Festival in the morning...I really love that show, next year I think we will skip the Moxee Hop Festival and try the festival in Aberdeen Wa instead...keep a watch on my yearly calendar for updates ( I do try to keep that one current )
after Westport it back to Packwood for the Labor Day Celebration and then we will come home for two weeks...then it’s something completely new...we are off to RENO NV!!!!! more about that one later...keep an eye on my face book page as that is so much easier to update while we are on the road.
thanks for staying with me all these years, as you can see since we closed the shop we are even busier than before and besides they tore down the Track 29 and put up a parking lot....there's a song in there somewhere....lol... see you down the road..... Annette
