What can I say. I had a totally awesome weekend. It all started on Friday when I took the day off. I slept about an hour later than normal and got up at 430 am. I then headed out to the gym to take a spin class. I have really been pushing hard to lose some extra weight and the extra class was just what I needed. It was a super class and I got a really good workout. After that, I spent the rest of the day, working in the garden, pulling weeds and getting plants ready for Saturday.
Saturday morning it looked like rain but by 8 am they skies began to clear and we got a really good crowd at the market. I met some really nice people and sales went well. Meanwhile, my son was doing well at the Wine Festival, selling his plants. When I got home from the market I had a really nice surprise waiting for me in the form of a package of goodies. It was from Edie and It was jammed full of nice surprises. There was everything from candy to a shiny new car. That’s right. Edie bought me a red Ferrari convertible. She sure knew what I wanted. Ok I did hit just a bit.
There were also some nice business cards (we need to talk business Edie, I love them), and my favorite thing a refrigerator magnet with Genesis 2:15 and a pretty flower on it. Of course I am not putting it on my refrigerator because I want it here at work where I can view it all day long. I placed it on the metal cabinet over my computer screen so it is eye level and right in front of me. In case you are wondering what Genesis 2:15 says; “The LORD God took man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” That suits me to a T. Thank you so much Edie. You are Awesome!
So at the festival, my son met a man who had a friend who needed lots of plants. The guy couldn’t take them with him though so he asked for our card. Well on Sunday afternoon this guy called and asked if we could take a look at his place and give him some plant advice. We just happened to be just around the corner from his house when he called. He is in the process of landscaping and wanted a tropical look. So we took a ride to his place and talked with him and his wife and he ended up putting in an order for a bunch of plants. How awesome is that? And he put the plants right in the ground and now it is raining so I am sure they will all live.
Also over the weekend we did some work on my son’s car. He was having some alignment and steering problems. He also needed new tires. Well we looked on the internet and discovered that the tires on his old wrecked vehicle were the same as the original tires on his new car. If you recall he had just bought new tires for his old car just before he wrecked it. So we changed out the tires, and all the alignment and steering problems went away. So along with the huge plant sales we also saved hundreds of dollars on his car. Talk about a WIN WIN weekend.
Isn't God Awesome!
Have a great day,
