Doggy Will Go-A-riding
Hmm, for some reason I am much less stressed today. I think I can do it all. Of course that is how I get into these situations, I think I can do it all. hehe.
Well yesterday I got the last drawing of Far North revised... click on that last link, to see the before, and the thumbnail here to see the after. Small changes but important ones.
You can open them both at the same time and see what I changed. I also did the front cover sketch and researched an airplane for the back cover which I will do RIGHT NOW.
Then I will start on the colors. yay.
I did a good thing... I hope. I finally broke down and ordered the cart for my doggy. I decided on the less fancy one (ie doesn't have fabric folddown sides etc) but the most versatile one... the Equinox model. I am getting the frame, the hardward to make a plywood box on top, the handle to make it into a garden cart to pull her around, an extra wheel mount assembly to turn it into a stroller, and a bicycle hitch. I will need to supply the plywood, and the two main wheels, myself. I thought it would be less expensive to just pick up bike wheels here instead of having them shipped from the US. And I can see what height wheel will be the best.
So, it was about $400 US once I added all the options, plus I will pay postage.. and THEN we'll see what they'll charge at the border. I'm just gonna suck it up and pay. yup. The good thing is that soon there should be photos of my doggies in her cart. hehe. The guy says it should be here by the 12-14th. That is pretty quick. yay!!!
And as a result, unless it rains I WILL have a garage sale this weekend. I feel ruthless. I will sell the doll house I had (and never finished putting together) since I am 13, with the dolls from Germany, and the cute furniture (half of which are kits I never finished either)... it is great for someone who has grandchildren and wants to finish it themselves... there is a lighting system I never set up, carpeting and wallpaper etc.
And various other items. I don't know what I'm going to do for a table to put things out on though. Oh dear. But maybe I'll make a few bucks.
So you can see I am on a roll. Of course the best thing would be if I had tons of time to go through all the stuff in the basement and clean it. Maybe tomorrow night. haha.
Anyways, I will NOT be doing the 7am garage sale thing (oh, do you think it would be HORRID to sell my grandmother's pink glass dishes?? My mom dumped like EVERYTHING on me when she left town. My grandmother is dead. They've been in a box since. I think they are a treasure, but if they ARE, why would my mom dump them on me?? oh dear. Maybe I'll put a price like $50 for the box, and not $1 a piece)... I think I will do from 1pm to 8pm. Who knows if anyone will come at that time. We'll see.
But this weekend there is a sidewalk sale on the shopping street a block away, so I should be able to get people to walk down here in the afternoon.
I think I will sell kool-aid and chocolate chip cookies as well, and my books and comics. yup. That way I've got more than your average garage sale stuff.
This entry is getting longer than intended. I am off to work now. tah!!
Here is my horoscope for Thursday, June 3:Haha, they are on with the accents again. What is WITH that?? I am feathering my nest for me! hehe, well, planting nice plants and getting rid of some crap. That is not exactly a "love nest" eh!
You should be a Libra, your generous, realistic,
and charming, but you can be dependent,
distant, and materialistic.
