…because this week has been crazy so far. Mark’s been baking non-stop all week and next week is shaping up to be just as busy as well. Seems like all the Fall events and weddings are converging along the same timeline and we’re feeling way swamped.
First up: tomorrow is the annual Chile Fiesta at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We’ll be at the Osborne Garden (I confess that I don’t know where that is…yet) selling our stuff and handing out samples alongside other chili/chocolate makers. Lots of other events and music going on too. We’ll be outside and yeah, the forecast is supposed to be awful with many threats of rain and thunderstorms throughout the day. It’s been so cold this week that I’m tempted to bring a sleeping bag to drape over me (don’t worry, I won’t).
Then on Sunday we’ll have a table at the Atlantic Antic Festival, one of the biggest, if not THE biggest street fair in NYC. We’ll be between Smith Street and Boerum Place so stop by if you’re planning to go. Sunday’s forecast has improved greatly since the beginning of the week and it now looks like ideal weather for a fair. In true character since the weather has cleared up, however, I’ve found some other little detail to stress out about. Where am I going to go to the bathroom during all those 8+ hours at the fair? For someone with a small bladder and the propensity to go often, yes, this is stressful! This means that I’ll have to strategize by avoiding my much-needed cup of coffee in the morning (especially *that* morning as we’re supposed to be there to set up at 8am). Then for lunch, I might need to bypass the always-tempting “meat on a stick” stands and instead go to Nicky’s, which happens to be nearby our table, for a Vietnamese sandwich and a bathroom break. I know, I know. I am ridiculous.
