I feel like I am neglecting my blog but life has really been boring lately. This is October though and things always start picking up in October. Sunday we are doing a charity auction for the Congregation B’nai Zion Sisterhood. They have gathered a lot of wonderful donations so we should be able to raise some money for all their good works. It will also be fun. When our livelihood is not dependent on the auction, Neil turns into real entertainer.
They only negative: setup for Sunday’s auction starts tomorrow, the same day our new outlet mall opens. I was so looking forward to the grand opening of the mall. It will probably turn out better because we will avoid the mob. Neil does not like mobs or waiting in line. To make up for missing out on the opening Neil took me to Sunland Park Mall and I bought more Fiesta dishes. New colors!! I also checked out the new Martha Stewart collection at Macy’s. Danielle if you are listening there is a really neat spice rack (wood shelf with tins) that would make a nice Christmas present for someone (me).
Also this month we get to do Operation Pumpkin which is for the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home. I will take lots of pictures of this one because it is a blast. Doctors from El Paso carve pumpkins which Neil auctions off. Some of the pumpkins are very elaborate and it is not unusual for them to sell for hundreds of dollars. Of course every doctor wants his to bring the biggest price so that helps. Liquor is also served and that helps!
