Irv just left to go pick up our carry-out for tonight! I'm getting a delicious Blue Cheese Pecan Chopped Salad from Outback. Of course that comes with a loaf of their awesome bread and then I got a piece of carrot cake for dessert! Oh....and I always get fries from the little burger joint where Irv gets his usual Italian Beef. So much for any kind of calorie control again this evening!
We also got our two stainless steel water bottles from Powderfin today. We can't drink our tap water...it's well water and full of rust...so we have to buy bottled water. We always get a couple of the 2 gallon "tapper" size and then usually buy a case of the individual bottles to use for to and from work. I hate buying all of the water in plastic even though we recycle it all, so at the suggestion of fellow blogger "So Sherry" we decided to try this company. I've been filling mine all day from the 2 gallon tapper and the water has tasted great from the new stainless bottle. Mine is so cute with it's little dragonfly on it. Irv got a bigger size with fish on it! So no more little plastic bottles!
Well, I took the plunge and I ordered a 10 by 10 white canopy for the craft show. The rental place wanted $60 for one day. If I even do three shows this summer, that would cost more than what I paid for the canopy. We went to a few stores this morning and couldn't find one that didn't look like it would fall apart the first day, so I ended up ordering one online that had free shipping. I have no idea what the quality will be, but it can't be any worse than what we saw in the stores. Here is the one I ordered. We saw one by this company this morning and it looked much nicer than the others, it was just too big and didn't come in white. So, wish me luck...I figured even if I get a couple of seasons out of it, it was still cheaper than renting.
If I love doing the shows and do well at them, down the road maybe I'll invest in a really nice tent! Do you have a tent for craft shows? If so, what brand do you have?
Well, dinner will be here in a few minutes. Better get some plates and silverware out! Have an awesome evening!
