Today I took our Dad out to visit all of the Christmas bazaars in our area… The bazaars are always held the first weekend in October; they are kind of the kickoff to the beginning of Christmas & holiday season around this part of the country where all of us live. Of course, the weather & the temperatures have been cooling off quite a bit around here too. The colder temperatures always put me in mind of the holidays. That, & being able to use our wood burning fireplace. All of us love burning wood in our fireplace, & so all of us are always thrilled when the weather starts cooling off. Today, the bazaars were in full swing! Even though the temperatures were really cool outside, it felt like you were inside of a gas furnace inside the churches where the bazaars were held! They really had some complications with their heating & air conditioner units at these churches this week; I’m not sure if the heating was stuck or if they just had too many bodies packed into the churches at the same time. Yet it was a relief for me to get out of the heat & awful indoor air quality & back outside into the fresh frosty air! The weather is still cooling down now, & all of us are expecting to get more snow… But that’s okay with me, because once at the I’m beach house in front of our fireplace I will be thrilled & content. No more Christmas bazaars for me this year, that’s for sure! I’m ready to snuggle in at beach house in front of the fireplace & let them worry about their heating problems themselves.
