A new toy
I figured out the other night that I have 14 events between now and Christmas, and that's assuming none get added to the schedule. And something always gets added to the schedule.
Add to that the fact that I have enough merchandise for about 3 shows, and that the holidays (and therefore, custom order season) are almost upon us, and I'm really getting antsy to get the job over with.
But while it's still going on, and while I have this steady money coming in, I've treated the house (and occasionally myself) to a few not-quite-luxuries, this being one of them.
Hopefully this weekend it'll get taken out of the box. I don't have a show, and so long as the kitchen isn't 90 degrees, I think I'll pick up something at the farmers market and fire this baby up and see what it can do. I really want to expand beyond tomatoes and pickles, and a pressure canner will allow me to can soups, low-acid vegetables, even meats.
Now I just need to work up the nerve to try it out.
