Some of the projects we've been involved with over the past few weeks have taken away from my blogging time and motivation.
Our beans will be featured in the Grand Rapids Magazine's December edition. At least that's what we've been told. When we were interviewed, we realized that we really can't put off having a real website much longer. So we've been working on that, with the great help of our daughter and her co-worker. Whatever "works" about the website is because of them. Whatever is clunky is probably where you see my fingerprints. No, we're not unveiling it just yet. It still needs a little more spit-polish.
For a couple of weeks there, this blog's future hung in the balance. Why not just incorporate the blog into the website itself? Have everything look uniform, streamlined, less cluttered... But I just couldn't leave it behind. So, while I may rearrange the furniture a bit sometime this winter, I'm sticking with the blog. You can click on a link at our website and be taken directly here (thanks to linky magic).
The Farmer has been faithfully going to as many Farmer's Markets as he can manage. Most of the beans have been cleaned, and half of our work force (Hi, Mom and Dad!) have flown the coop for the winter. The rest of us keep working. The bean fields and hay field have been tilled once, in preparation for next spring's planting.
I worked the election (my day job has to do with elections, and more) and lived to tell about it. And the next thing on the horizon (looming, I tell you) is the Kerstmarkt. If you click on the "Events" link at the top of this blog, you'll see the schedule and more details about the happenings.
Anyway, I think I've chatted enough, and I have some socks that need to be labeled. And mittens. And some cat toys to make. You get the idea...
