The boxes for the San Francisco Artisan Perfume Salon are packed, sealed, and delivered to Fed Ex, to magically appear at our hotel in time for the Salon. Kudos to FedEx for making everything go so smoothly and inexpensively! Once the precious packages were given up to their fate, I spent most of yesterday preparing and packing up the usual hundreds of orchid plants for this weekend’s show and sale in Tacoma. Quick change of hats. Whew!!! Now it’s 6:00 AM on Saturday and I’m ready for the drive to Tacoma.
Once the orchid show is over on Sunday night, I can relax and take care of last-minute preparations for San Francisco, and maybe even post here a few times before I leave next Friday. I plan to take my camera to San Francisco (although my phone will do in a pinch) and take lots of photos at the Salon, so stay tuned. I’m excited to meet the other participating perfumers, the bloggers who will be there, and all of the other wonderful people who gravitate to a place that’s loaded with perfume.
For the weekend, though, I’ll be away from the internet. Maybe a couple of days break is a good thing.
