Oh, this weather! We broke some temp records Thanksgiving weekend and just when I thought it would turn around and start getting cold for good, we get another golden weekend of sunny, 60 degree days. This weather’s been super awesome. This is the High Line in Fall. I don’t remember if I’ve been up there during this time of year. Despite the warm temperatures, the trees are all shedding their leaves and starting to look wintery against the sky.
So far Holiday!Cookie!Madness! has been manageable, partly due to the fact that I’m not working on any big freelance projects right now which is enabling me to jump into the week of tedious tasks without any sort of pressing time crunch pulled in different directions. How civilized. I remember last year I had a big deadline right in the middle of our string of 9 Brooklyn Flea dates. We struggled to keep the table stocked as well as man the booth so I ended up having to sit behind the table while working on my laptop trying to get these designs done for a client, bundled in my big down
sleeping bag coat and fingerless gloves. It was freezing in the section where we were at. We dubbed it the “Meat Locker”. Good times. Sorta.
I know it’s early in the season yet, but maybe we’ll get by this month without any break downs or crying?
