Sunny Sunday

It's a rare sunny day in Forks, Wa. However because it's Sunday most of the town is shut down. There's lots to do outside though and you don't have to spend any money to enjoy nature. My mom is in town for a visit and we're going to the Lounge restaurant to give it a try. My brother has been there but I haven't yet, I may write a little review about it tomorrow.

Up and running again

Well I'm up and running again, had some downtime due to a blown power supply. Dad has gone turkey hunting in West Virginia after he just got back from turkey hunting in eastern WA. I'm watching the shop for him, not much business currently though.
My custom Twilight greeting cards showed up, and they are nicer than I thought they would be. Got my logo, business name and catchphrase all ready for business cards and signs. Waiting on my resellers license so I can get some vendor applications filled out and get some inventory ordered. I've got a register program for ringing sales, just need to practice on it a bit and then get my inventory entered into it.
I also got my business banking account set up and am waiting on the debit cards to arrive to order some custom Twilight t-shirts. Looking around town at the current offerings I haven't seen a lot of original Twilight merchandise, just a lot of stuff that could be picked up at Wal-mart cheaper. I know when I go visit a tourist destination, I look for something original and unique to the area and that is what I am going to specialize in. I want to have the different, unique and one of a kind products that you can only get in Forks, Wa at the heart of the Twilight saga.

Easter in Forks

Easter Sunday in Forks was actually rainless. The grass was wet this morning but at least it has been a nice overcast day and we got to enjoy an easter egg hunt outside. Usually in Forks we'd do our Easter morning egg hunts inside because of the rain. Going over to my brothers for Easter family dinner, his wife is a vegetarian but she is actually cooking a ham for dinner. Now that's some family love right there.

Forks Easter egg hunt

Just got done with the Forks Easter egg hunt at the Tillicum park ball fields. We walked there and it was overcast weather with the sun peaking out. As soon as we walked through the gates it started raining a little and then as soon as they shouted go for the hunt it started hailing. The kids didn't care they those eggs disappeared into baskets faster than the hail was falling. As soon as the drawings for the prizes were done it stopped raining and the sun came out. It's nice to see that although the town has changed a little with the Twilight phenom the weather still keeps it's sense of humor.
