No, that is not a dead body above. Funny how some people will lay down just about anywhere to sun, huh?
Anyway, all our shops are closed, my freelance deadlines are handed in, I scrubbed and cleaned the house down yesterday (am I the only nut who does this before leaving?) and we’re trying to finish up with our packing. Mark’s gotta get all his kitchen stuff together as we plan to do some cooking out at the beach house. We’ve got a dozen or so packages to drop off at the post office, make a cookie delivery for a party in Brooklyn Heights and to one of our retailers, Provisions in Fort Greene, to drop off a wholesale order AND THEN we are done and on our way. Amazing.
Fall is shaping up to be quite a killer for the business as we have many events, in October in particular, and many weddings to do. We are already feeling the dread of being totally slammed in the months to come (can’t. think. about. holidays. yikes!!) but at least we won’t have to think about this stuff for more than a week. See you from the beach house.
