monday morning

there were supposed to be photos of the bathroom here but i keep encountering 'upload errors' for the photos but i want to get something on the page soooo....
we had a busy and productive weekend. i did some gardening, some cement work, hung sheets out to dry and aired all the blankets (what can match the feeling of crawling into an outside-smelling set of sheets at the end of a long day?), i sent off my garden club updates for the newspaper and website,tim posted his assignments, textured, painted and replaced trim board on the wall in the hallway created for the bathroom, watched some golf, made a great lunch with chorizo, grilled chicken and shrimp, we made a walmart run for a dehumidifier, charlie got a haircut, (we had rain and hail during the ordeal)and generally just had a good weekend.
today i have an appointment for a manicure before work. (i really should be in the shower right now) tomorrow i see the eye doctor and get a haircut. i'm waiting for an email response to a request made friday (because i didn't want to sit on the phone all day) from the dept of revenue. a wasted day on the phone may have been quicker...i'm going to set up a table at the farmers market to sell my cement leaves so i need to know my responsibility to the state in terms of collecting tax. i can get a site for $15 for the 10 week season. i'm planning to do maybe 6 weeks. who knows when the leaves will run out?? it could be fun.

good idea, mom! want to sell some purses too? :) just kidding. but you can also go to your states official website and it will tell you specifically what is taxed and if it is different per county or city. i usually just include tax in my prices. you can apply online for a tax ID number if you need it. I hope it works out. what are you going to be charging?

i've talked to richard in north platte and will aplly online for the tax id number. the pricing - as always - is the hard part. probably 5, 10, 15 and 20 according to size....any suggestions based on the ones i brought you??

15, 17, 25 and 30. that is what city folk would play, so i suppose you need to take it down a little, buit more than 5.00, that's for sure. one thing about selling cement items at a fair... they are going to be very heavy to lug in and out of your booth. heavy = more work = more money.

city folk?? thanks for the input. our farmers market takes place on main street. you just back your vehicle up to the curb and you're good to go - so no lugging!!
