Best Laid Plans

We had a decent market on our first go-around, even running out of supplies and essentially selling out. Naturally after such an occurrence, being the devoted capitalists that we are, we wondered how many more we could have sold if we'd just been more prepared. The next time around we decided to over-prepare and have plenty of everything: tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, and of course, falafels. R made plenty of sauce, which we always run out of. The weather forecast called for morning showers followed by mid-70s with sun and clouds. Basically a beautiful day.

Since we did okay the previous week, we figured we would tear things up and sell a ton of product, but as it turns out, the market was slow, and we have increased competition for food. All in all it was a bit disappointing. A good day, though not fabulous one, especially when you're anticipating a massive sellout. It just goes to show you, you never know how things are going to turn out. Or, don't count your chickens and all that good stuff. Something along those lines.

Whatever be the case, it's a good lesson in just being thankful for what you have. It was a beautiful day and like I said, we did okay. We've had worse, and we've had better. I'm just glad that it didn't rain.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Pictures of Money for the pic.
