We moved into our RV earlier this week, but we’re still sitting in our driveway. We discovered last year that by moving into the RV early, if we think of something we wanted to take with us, we only have to go into the house to get it.
I wasn’t sure when my last day at the Noble House for this season would be, but my boss told me at the end of my shift today that the museum will be closed next weekend. I ended the season with a bang!
Last weekend was the Pumpkin Patch in Baileys Harbor. This weekend is Fall Fest in Sister Bay. Next weekend will be the Fall Art Crawl in Ellison Bay. Then, the tourist season will be pretty much over! Everyone here is eager for the tourists to go away. I called one of the lodgings I call every week to find out what their availability is like, and I asked the hotel manager how he was doing. He said he wanted to crawl under his desk!
My job at the Welcome Center is practically just down the street from me and I like to walk there and back on my workdays. I even do paced walking with my phone tapping out a beat for me to walk to. Monday, on my way home from work, I tripped.
Today was the last of two Vintage Markets held at the Liberty Grove Historical Society Museum. Last month, I tried to sell some of my Halloween kits; this month I tried to sell Thanksgiving and Christmas kits. I also carried over my Wanda’s Journey line and sold two of those, and I took a bunch of wooden hoop frames and sold several of them. I only made about half as much as I did last month. 🙁 One plus is that I finally figured out how to use the Square I bought for taking payments through my Etsy website. It was kind of nifty!
At the Welcome Center today, my boss brought me a bag of apples that someone had picked off their tree. Most of them were wormy or bruised, but I cut the bad parts out and made a big batch of applesauce. I squeezed lemon into it and didn’t add any sugar. Mark and I like tart things and we each had a small bowl of it while it was still hot. It was so good!
My boss, Mickie, at the Door County North Welcome Center (visitor center), paid for herself and a co-worker named Vickie and me to take a four-hour tour this afternoon. Just before I left home to pick Vickie up and head to the trolley station in Egg Harbor where the tour was going to start, Mickie texted Vickie and me and said there was a tornado watch for Door County and she said we didn’t have to go on the tour if we didn’t want to. Both Vickie and I opted to continue as planned.
One or two of you have mentioned that you’ve missed me writing this month. We’ve been trying to get Ashton through the Freshman year of high school. Ashton was way behind when we first picked Ashton up, but we pushed Ashton to catch up and Friday was the last day to turn assignments in. We’re just waiting to see the report card now, but we know that Ashton will be passing almost all of the classes, hopefully with a good margin.
