When It Rains, it pours

Not that I am complaining...seriously, this is all good news. But tonight I got reacquainted with an old saying 'when it rains, it pours'. I have flirted with this saying many times in the past - but it had been a while since I actually found myself muttering it to myself over and over again.

You see this weekend I am taking part in my first big craft show. The Made By Hand Show where you will find me at Booth #64. So for the past few weeks I have been going to the commercial kitchen and building up my inventory, getting a gorgeous 8ft banner printed for my booth, adhering labels to my jars, printing off information pamphlets, buying crackers for sampling and generally just getting the 'house in order' so to speak.

And now here comes the 'when it rains it pours bit', I get an email order for my preserves from a great little store in Collingwood and then tonight while I am stirring jam with one hand, responding to emails with the other, the phone rings and I pick it up with my third hand...oh right, I don't actually have one of those. But I digress...the phone rings and it is a call to let me know that Reesor Farm Kitchens wants to repeat their order from last month.

In one breath I am yelling 'yahoo' and in the next in honour of my friend Cori Sandler, I am saying 'oy vey!'

It's gonna be a busy month. :)
