Yesterday, my mother sold her first hat on Etsy. Mind you, it's not the first hat she's sold - there were three others sold recently to members of a certain Group from Facebook (Greater Chicagoland Blogger Meetup) and it was those sales which finally convinced Grannie to open up her own Etsy shop.
So now? Now I pimp Grannie every opportunity I get. I may become boring because of this. If you detect a boring sameness in me as this goes forward, be sure to let me know. I can't guarantee it'll make any difference, but at least I'll know you're paying attention. :)
I picked up a new bike yesterday. Free. The guy just wanted it out of his garage. It's a Pacific SE 2000 R - a mountain bike with 26" tires, full suspension, and appears to be in pretty good shape. I'm gonna clean it up, tune it up, and put a comfort saddle on it. Then I'm going to sell it. I LOVE free inventory.
While on my way to pick up the bike, I drove past a round barn - one of the few in Illinois - and I'm going to go down and take pictures of it this weekend. I understand there's a good chance that it is scheduled to be demolished and I want to make sure I get pictures of it before it's torn down.
Oh. One more thing. If you're a bike rider, as I have become in recent days, besides sunscreen and proper clothing, remember to ride with your mouth closed. I'm just sayin'.
