I’m excited to let you know that I have an opening date for my new store – May 22nd! Our governor is allowing retail stores to open starting May 11th, but since there were some things I simply hadn’t been able to do yet, I couldn’t be ready by then. Things will be different because of the pandemic, but I feel comfortable opening up now, even though I’m sure we’ll start out slowly. Our area has not been too hard hit by this, but that’s partially because of our smaller populations, I think, and because people have been staying home more (I think…..I know I haven’t been much of anywhere other than home and my shop).
I still have a lot to do before May 22nd! Therefore, things will probably be pretty quiet here on the blog for the next 2-3 weeks, because I really need to focus on getting the store ready to go. Once we get settled into our new routines, we’ll be back!
I may do a short post here or there if time allows, so you can see Luke’s sweet face, or if I have some farm news I can’t wait to share (hint: we think one of our hens is ready to try hatching some eggs! Paws crossed, they’ve fooled us before!). By the way, our hen Martha who was attacked by the fox is still hanging in there. She seems to be making some progress even though it is very slow, and we’re still worried, though hopeful, about her.
The chicken coop finally got its spring clean-out, though we’re still waiting for that true spring weather (maybe this week?). You may have seen on Facebook that we had snow again last Saturday! Enough already, really. If I didn’t have my store to focus on, I’d really be having a hard time keeping my chin up between the pandemic and the weather. I know I’m not alone in that.
We hope everyone else is hanging in there too, and that things can get slowly get back to normal soon. We’ll be checking in on everyone, even though we may be a bit quiet when we visit. 😊
