Can you believe it? We woke up to snow last Sunday, April 20Th. This is what our town and beach looked like when we woke up. We have had snow other days this past winter, but in mid April this was a surprise. The snow did not last long, but was fun to have around. This just adds to our interesting weather for 2007-2008.
We officially have our house on the market. This is not the best time to be selling, but once summer comes so do the people and lookers to purchase rental properties or summer homes on the Oregon Coast. We shall see what happens.
My husband has been having talks with his school about doing some very innovative teaching strategies. If given the right offer, he may remain teaching for another couple years and as a result we will not move at this time. This is an interesting place to be. We love living in Pacific City, Oregon and if the teaching environment is going to change then hmmmmm this may make us think twice.
Time will tell and I will definitely keep updating as we know more.
Shows are about to begin for me. May is a busy month. I have three art/craft shows to be in and two Farmer's Markets start. My in-laws run one of them in Gresham, Oregon and I run the one in McMinnville, Oregon. Wow, this should be a start to a good summer. I have been accepted to some new shows this summer and I am excited to try them out. My website will have all the updates as to what shows we will be at, their times and locations. You can go to www.pauperscandles.com/Retailstores.html and take a look. I also had some new signs made for my booth and for my in-laws booth. These are the best signs I have had yet. I am anxious to put them up and see how they look.
I need to go and record some burn times on the candle testing. I will write about this next.
Don't forget to light your favorite candle with a nice Spring Scent. It helps me to remember that Spring is here, even if the weather does not make it seem like it.
