I can't believe...

...we ran out of flowers.  The cold chest is empty and customers are choosing their way through the last of the yellow roses, the red tulips, the gerbera daisies (sorry, Miss P).  So far, no one has left in disappointment, but it's a challenge making bouquets.

This is the beginning of things on Sunday.


  

We're waiting for orders to be picked up, but I'd say, we're done.  Kudos and thank yous to Kate, Sarah, Marisa and Allison who came in one last time to help out before class.  Everyone was stellar.  Only one mix-up on my part.  I'll be paying dearly for it tomorrow, but that's the Biz.

Well, maybe running out of flowers is a sign the economy is picking up.

I've been thinking about you all day. Glad to hear things went relatively smoothly.

Running out = sold out. Pretty good, I'd say!

Yay! It's over and you bought wisely I'd say.

I'm off to the bath.

Ouch.

Steve , haven't rung in all the receipts, but it could be good.

Rachel, yes, a good sign!

Helen, yes, leftover red roses are ....not preferred.

Jane, over. Yes. It wasnt as bad as I'd thought. Whew.

Jen, spirits were good this year. Last year, I came down with H1N1 flu on Valentine's day. Tonight, I'm healthy and ready for tomorrow!

Wow, a lot of work. It's nice to know so many people want to give flowers to their loved ones. Time for a nap :)
