So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye!

Today is my final day of work for this week, I've decided that since I run my own business I am entitled to take normal holidays off just like everyone else. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and though no one observes it here in Germany, I decided that I am taking it off anyway! I'm also taking Friday off so I can enjoy a much needed 4 day weekend. Yippee! I can't wait to unplug from the computer for a few days and jump into some crafting projects. I want to make several mini paintings for friends, work on some projects around my apartment, and just enjoy the last 3 weeks in Germany as I leave in 22 days (wahhh!) and head back to the states for the winter. Tomorrow begins the annual Weihnachtsm?rkte for the next three weeks so I'll be out and about with my camera and of course, my wallet! I love to shop at these little vendors, I usually don't spend much money but I do enjoy all of the treats and wooden toys. I am so looking forward to this short vacation. Here are some of my current Flickr faves. Please click here to view them all, you can click on the mini photos once you are on Flickr to view them in full size. Pay special attention to the little fox. Once you click on him you will find the most lovely story.

Have a bright and beautiful few days and since you're an international crowd and not all celebrate Thanksgiving since it's primarily an American holiday, I'll simply wish you a lovely time doing whatever it is that you will do until we meet again. I'll see you on Monday, December 1st.

"I'm glad... to go.... I cannot tell a lie... so Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye....I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye!" - Lyrics from the Sound of Music.
