When Life Gives You Lemons...

Make Lemonade! I have literally done that this past week. I have sold more lemonade then I have BBQ Sandwiches. Today is the first late day at the fair. I have to be there by 2. I didn't realize that I could be so tired. These 10am till 12am days are killing me! As Brendia told you; we had done pretty well until yesterday. Monday night the storms came through and just about blowed us away. The fair closed early, but we still didn't get home until almost midnight. We stayed there even after closing because we had to clean up the mess! The storm blew my sign off my tent, but thank the Lord for a husband that can fix anything, he was able to reattach it that night! Yesterday it rained pretty much all day so there were very few people at the fair. We've been told by our stand neighbors (who've been there over 20 years) that it will probably rain off and on today and tomorrow too, but that will make the last weekend packed with people. I hope so because it almost wasn't worth my time to even be there yesterday.

Keep praying for us! I have had lots of compliments on my BBQ, and I've been told I have the best lemonade in the park! I probably won't have time to check back in until Monday, so just keep me in your prayers.

Also, especially pray for Charlie. He is not doing so well. He is extremely tired from working his normal job and then coming to the fair and helping me close. I told him he didn't have to come tonight. It is supposed to be slow again, and I think I can handle it.
