Countdown..to our Christmas Tea and Gift Sale

Went to family breakfast this morning. From there drove out to see the big poster the girls had made and put up on the site of our Saturday sale....great job! Then drove to my cousins to get some more hand out flyers to distribute to various locations.
I then went to my hairdresser's to get my hair cut and she asked for some flyers to hand out to customers. Virginia is the best hairdresser I've ever had, reasonable and one of the best listeners ever. With all the customers she has, she manages to remember so many details of conversations with me and I assume that holds true for all her customers. She is the sweetest person and yet when you meet her for the first time, one is taken aback. She has a very funky hairdo that changes frequently as does the colour of her hair, she has all kinds of tatoos and a few piercings so one might draw certain (incorrect) conclusions based on her appearance. She is SO genuine and a really hard worker. She's always willing to help wherever she can for her clients and I just love her. She and a friend went out on their own last year to start their own salon and these two deserve every bit of success that comes their way and then some.
Did some last minute purchases for the sale on Saturday like gift bags to put my stuff in when someone buys something and then I want to decorate the center of my tables with a Christmas theme so had a few bits to pick up for that purpose.
I'm going to TRY and make a couple of more plates over the next day but won't freak out if I don't get a lot more made.
I've started packing everything so I don't forget stuff Saturday. I'm sure there are people who can relate. As I think of things I need to take, I now just go get it and put it in a box near my front door.
Tonight will be SO interesting..as I intend to watch a lot of the American coverage and the Canadian coverage of the election....it will be interesting either way it ends up...pretty historical in meaning.
