My, how time flies. It seems like just yesterday that we put the booths up and started our annual Christmas Market. Yet here we are, approaching the last weekend already!
We often have shoppers ask why we end the Kerstmarkt so soon. We pleasantly remind them that we have Christmas shopping and baking to do, too. And that we are always open 4 weekends--starting right before Thanksgiving. This year is an early ending, because of an early Thanksgiving. But the truth is, we are anxious to return to our regular markets, as well.
(And here's a gentle reminder to treat retail workers kindly during the holidays and always. We are people, with joys and worries and feelings, too.)
We didn't get as much done for this weekend's market as we might have liked. Well problems and equipment failures on the farm have distracted us.
And (my, how time flies) we took a little day drive away from the farm to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. No cruises or tropical vacations for us, but we enjoyed the day as much as or more than if we'd done the big expensive fling.
Stop by and see us this weekend if you can.
