You probably can't see me jumping up and down with excitement!! At long last (and it has been a LONG month), the Pumpkin Patch will close today at 5:00. It's been the weirdest year ever and I'm glad to see it come to a close. Working 9-10 hours a day every day can be a chore, although the people really do make it fun.
After making a list and checking it twice ... no wait, that's Santa Clause ... after checking my storage containers and finding them almost empty, I made up my daily we-are-out-of list and passed it on to the big boss for procurement. I expect to run out of everything today.
I base my projections on what we did the day before. About half that number magically arrives in my container three hours later, meaning we are always running out of tortilla chips and hot dogs.
It was a weird day, back to very hot and looking like smoke. I truly wished I had my big camera when I saw the moon coming up over the corn. It was fabulous, but my now miscreant phone wouldn't capture the true beauty.
MANY people came from over two hours away, just to be outside. We were at capacity again, having to actually shut down the entrance. I expect today to be no different.
Almost all of the little ones are wearing their costumes. You should see them! I would love to post pictures, but you know how that goes. Most people do not want pictures of their little kids on the internet and nowadays, they are right.
Although my cold has now moved down a few notches and I'm starting the coughing stage, it's holding off enough for me to head out for the last day!! I am SO looking forward to getting to know my couch again tomorrow, because tonight is Halloween-get-your-candy night!!!
