THINGS ARE CHANGING
A wise friend recently told me, "If you want to make God laugh, just tell Him your plans." Well, God must be having a good laugh at us right about now.
Going into our third year of vintage and antiques markets, we had already felt the need to cancel our Spring Market 2018 to focus on our daughter's wedding, a trip to Virginia, and the completion of our second cabin, but we had planned to get back on track with our Fall/Holiday Market 2018. That was OUR plan. God had other plans.
We are now full-time caregivers for a relative. During the months leading up to a market, I work ten or twelve hours a day. Now, add the extra work load of the new responsibilities--there's simply not enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. And there's the little fact that I'm not getting any younger--long days take more of a toll on this old body than they once did. At this point, taking care of our relative has become our priority, and the markets will have to go on the back burner. When and if our circumstances change (and God approves!) we'll do another market, but until then...
....we've decided to focus on the manageable things here at home--Pimperl Place as a wedding or special event venue, our two cabins, and working on the walking trails. And flowers--yes, more flowers. It gives me joy to work in the yard with flowers, and I've missed that for a couple of years now. I'll be posting more information on what we have to offer here at Pimperl Place in the coming days, so please stay tuned.
Until then, I thought I would share a few pictures of our daughter's wedding and a recent dinner party that was held at the venue.
