#WeekendCoffeeShare: In Which I Am Working

weekendcoffeeshare

If we were having coffee, I might be on my 2nd mug at this point. And I’d probably be wearing horns. Yes, horns. Today is the annual costume and wardrobe sale for the nonprofit I work with, and we’re all wearing hats or headpieces while we work. It is Mardi Gras season, after all. And because costuming is our main focus and this is our big annual fundraiser, it’s A Big Deal. Volunteers have spent the week organizing racks of clothes, costumes, shoes, hats, wigs, and all sorts of other stuff that has been donated to us for resale, and I’ve been working on helping our director finish the organizational details.

I’ve been so busy with the sale, in fact, that until now I hadn’t managed to write a word since Monday, when I managed far fewer than I’d intended to.

But, for now, I’m working. And so if we were having coffee, I wouldn’t have much to say, today.

Next week, though…Next week I’ll be a regular ol’ chatterbox.❤

  1. I have always wanted to experience Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It’s one of the top to-dos on my bucket list! All the music, and parades, and costumes sound like so much fun. Good luck with your fundraiser today, I look forward to chatting again next week🙂

    1. Mardi Gras here is definitely a love/hate kind of thing for most people. It can be a lot of fun, but it’s also a lot of work, with a major influx of people and lots of street closures and such. Lots of people actually plan trips during this time of year. lol

      And thanks—the fundraiser went really well, though we’re all quite exhausted at this point.

      1. I guess it is like our mountains here. Tourists flood the mountain towns for skiing every winter and we all hate it, but we love the skiing too. I think all major cities have an attraction they they wish could be enjoyed by just the locals and not have to deal with outsiders lol

        Glad to hear your fundraiser went well🙂

        1. Thanks!

          It can be difficult to navigate around here during Mardi Gras. I don’t mind the tourists as much as some of the other locals, but I think that might be because I’m not from here and was a tourist here off and on for so long before actually making the move….I feel their pain. lol
