I have a serious lack of energy these days. It's sort of like having spring fever in the autumn! I don't know what's causing this, but it had better end soon because I have mountains of things to do, both at home and at Afton Station. The weather is changing, as are the leaves on the trees. My pansies are all planted, and I love that they stay alive and happy all winter. A winter without flowers would be so boring! But do I really have to start thinking about Christmas so soon? The stores I visit seem to think I do. Nope. I'll wait a while and just enjoy the crispness of fall.
To all of our friends who live in and around Sydney, Australia, our thoughts are with you as you fight the raging fires all around the city.
In case you're wondering why I'm babbling away like this instead of telling you about the day at Afton Station it is because so little happened! This was our first truly SLOW day of the fall, with a mere three visitors, one from Joplin MO, and a couple from Montreal Quebec, Canada. All of them arrived early in the day, so for the rest of the day Ron M. and I did some cleaning. (Ok, Ron did most of it.) But we got a few neglected nooks and crannies all cleaned up, which is more than would have happened if I'd been there alone. Betty and Rann both stopped in to say hello. I sold nothing and took no photos. I'm still confident that this slow day is a fluke and that we still have a good number of busy days ahead of us until we start closing down in December. This would be a good time to come for a visit. We'd have lots of time to chat!
