Fall has arrived in Hong Kong, unless you are a local and you would say winter has arrived. This week has been the first time in about 8 months that we have turned off the air conditioners. It has been in the 60s at night and in the low 70s during the day with low humidity. I forget how wonderful this type of weather is since it is so rare here. The locals definitely dress as if it is winter: wool coats, scarves, boots, tights, and sweaters. Last year, we procrastinated in purchasing a heater until the weather actually got cold, and then they were all sold out. I have already purchased one and plan to get another soon.
Our lives have been marching along. I have been very busy preparing for the two crafts shows. The first one for my jewelry is next week, and the GreenSeam show is 3 weeks following. Then, 2 weeks after the second show is Christmas and our trip to India. Two weeks after we return from India, it will be Chinese New Year and my Mom and sister arrive. I joke that my schedule will open up in February. Erik has been extremely busy with work. Many nights each week, he either has business dinners, conference calls, or goes on the computer to catch up on work.
