The holiday email has gone out. We are in the shop taking orders. So.... all is good. The weather has been pleasant which makes that trek from the house to the shop easy. We have been doing a few other things as well, though.
We work on the boat, HEY JUDE, every chance we get. She is still residing in Clear Lake. In fact, we spent Thanksgiving on her. This is a picture from earlier in the year when we had just loaded the roof back on her. She now has repaired railings, new pilot house windows and rear pilot house enclosures are being made. In January, the electronics that are in boxes sitting on our spare bed in the house will finally be installed. Even during all of these repairs, she has still been a great place to go and relax on.
I walked in the Boerne Christmas Parade this past weekend along with the Kendall County Animal Shelter float. I volunteer there during the week. Our first idea included walking some of the dogs in the parade, but on second thought we decided taking them on a strange road, at night, with lots of noise might not be a good idea. But, our float looked good anyway.
Here I am ready to walk and hand out candy. Just waiting for it to get dark.
I also still have my Little Free Library in front of the restaurant down the road.
I have been struggling to keep the kid's shelf loaded with books. I think kids borrow a book and then don't want to give it back. That's ok with me, but I just wasn't keeping that shelf as full as the adult shelves. Then....
our daughter/teacher rescued a giant box of books at her school that was headed for the recycle bin.
Ta da.... 105 books in great shape and ready for use!
I always like to include pictures of our bells in different places. These pictures are from Norfolk, VA where very nice friends live who have bells in trees in their back yard which leads to their boat!
..... tree with bells (and dog) in the spring...
....... same tree now with no leaves, but decorated with ornaments and bells....
AND... the same tree at night!
We hope everyone has a great holiday season. Hug the ones you will be with and send best thoughts to the ones you aren't near. Call, write or email your questions and orders. We will work had to get out your orders quickly. Shelia, our shop dog, is ready to help. She greets the UPS driver every day and does her tricks for dog cookies and then watches him load up!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR - thanks for all your orders during 2017. -
Ok folks, just an update to let customers know that there will NOT be a Windsongs booth at the Woodlands Waterway Spring Art Show this year. New management, new judges ... we didn't get in. But we just want customers to know we have not yet retired, nor have we left on that long boat trip.. we just aren't there.
Bells can still be ordered through the website. Or call us!!
We will be at the King William show in San Antonio for the last weekend of Fiesta.
I will post again soon with a more complete update.
