I am in shock over the news about Ruth Rochelle of Primitive Homeplace, she passed away yesterday. I just can't believe it, she hadn't been feeling well lately but last I read it was diagnosed as Mono which I didn't think was that serious. There must have been something else because she was quite young. I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person but have purchased from her before and the email exchanges were always friendly and funny. She and Jimmy had such a special relationship. He had a pretty bad scare with his heart just a few months ago and everyone was so relieved that he pulled through and now this....it's just such a shock I don't even know what to say. My thoughts are with their family and my heart goes out to them.
I actually have been feeling rather crappy physically myself lately and about a week ago I scheduled a doctor's appointment and it is this morning. I haven't been to a doctor since I had my gall bladder removed four years ago, so needless to say, I'm not a doctor goer. But I figured I should have my glucose level tested along with cholesterol which I've never had checked before ever. Right about now I'm feeling rather anxious about that needle they're going to be sticking into my arm....I hate the needle in the worst way....I wish there were a better way.
The above picture is of these really cute faux acorns that I got for my shoppe, I have had some of my own for several years now and use them every Autumn and Winter. I purchased mine from my all time favorite store that was located in Virginia Beach, it was called Village Mercantile, man was that ever a magical place. The owner retired and closed the store a few years ago. But when I finally found the supplier of these acorns I fondly remembered them from Village Mercantile and am happy to be able to offer them now to my customers.
Well that's all for today....please keep the Rochelle family in your thoughts and prayers.
