Been thinking about…

Howdy Everyone and Happy Friday.

Little morning trivia to start your day:

October 19, 1781 - As their band played The World Turned Upside Down, the British Army marched out in formation and surrendered to the Americans at Yorktown. More than 7,000 British and Hessian troops, led by British General Lord Cornwallis, surrendered to General George Washington. The war between Britain and its American colonies was effectively ended. The final peace treaty was signed in Paris on September 3, 1783.

Hope everyone is enjoying their morning beverage and day dreaming about the weekend. I know I sure am. This has been another busy week here around the homestead. You all kept me pretty hopping with the “Members Only” sale. It ends tonight at midnight for those of you who do the last minute shopping thing. Can see I will be spending next week pouring and restocking what is currently sold out. I will send out an email when I have restocked everything.

Well it seems you all are leaning more toward the “Wax Melts” at the moment. Can not say I blame you for buying these. Our wax melts are more convenient than candles. Wax melts and wax melt warmers are more acceptable to use in the workplace, apartments, and other places where customary candles and their flames could cause problems. Wax melting is also highly regarded by parents who are wary of small children and family pets being around flames. They are convenient, because there is no requirement for a lighter or matches, and the wax melts themselves are compact and usually come in a packed box for storage. They come in cubes making them easy to break apart and transport. When you want your space to smell amazing for long periods of time, drop a wax melt onto the wax melt warmer and forget about it! Wax melts can last anywhere from 8 hours to 2 days!

Been thinking about what to do for Halloween this year and what to give out. The children, candy of course. Think I will go with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I really like those so, if there are still a few left in the bowl, no problem. Now, as for the long lost and forgotten adults. The ones that wonder door to door with the children keeping a sharp eye on their flock to ensure a safe and memory making experience. The parents who now recall all the times they were going up to the door begging for whatever sweet thing was being handed out. What do you or can you do for them? What would they want or even except for that matter?

I remember my mother taking us out and following behind us kids as we went running around the neighborhood. She was such a trooper to be able to keep up with us. We would dart here and there to where we knew the good candy was being given out. I also remember avoiding the Jordans home because Mrs. Jordan always made those caramel coated apples and they kind of sucked. But, mom always made us go up to their door no matter what.

Well, I have just one more week to figure out what to do for them. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. Just drop your ideas in the comment section below. Until next week everyone!!
