Hello Grandkids and Others
I should phone you guys and see how your camping trip of Labor Day weekend. But maybe tomorrow night. I always put off talking on the phone. It is always stressful for me, so I do something else first until there is no good time left to phone. If there is something important to talk about, I am fine, but i would rather talk face to face. As for phone small talk I am no good at it. I never learned the art of small talk conversation. There evidently is a talent for that. I have a problem with small talk even in church. I will at time try to avoid people, so I do not have to small talk. I do not mean to be rude; I just do not know what to say. It all seems so phony looking for something to say.
We did a Flea market on Sunday. The second in two weeks. Doing two in two weeks really wears me down. We did okay but not great. It is a good thing we do not do it just for the money. It is an activity outside of the house. Along with a social activity for me but mostly for the wife. She loves people just like our Cairn Terrier does. But at times it has caused her problems. We have one more market this season, Mid October. Then we put it all away until May next year. By then I am ready to rest.
We are starting to see the end of the garden season also. It has been a productive season so far, with more produce to bring in. We are so Blessed that we have a space with good soil and sun. That we still have the ability to do the physical work. And that we still have the desire to do it. The biggest Challege is that my battery runs down easily, so I know need to pace myself. The wife helps where she can but does have limitations also.
It is now getting late, and I still want to do some reading. So, all have a Blessed evening.
