I simply can't get my head around the fact that October is already upon us. The days are noticeably shorter; I'm not looking forward to the when the clocks go back! I'm not a fan of driving to work in the morning when it's dark. I've bought three different sized pumpkins ready to carve for one of my favourite times of the year, Hallowe'en. I've avoided buying any treats so far. If there's chocolate in my house I can't stop thinking about it....!
I had a wonderful day last Saturday, October 5 at one of my favourite venues, Ormsby's Garden Centre. I know I've mentioned before how much I love the events held there, and I apologise in advance for repeating myself but I just can't say enough about it! The friendly and warm welcome given to everyone by the owners, Carol and Ken Ormsby is simply stated, just wonderful and their garden centre and adjoining shop is full of beautiful items for sale. There's a number of artisans who attend each event and to see familar faces adds to the atmosphere of community. It's just an all around great day. I'm pleased to announce that I'll be returning there for a Winter/Christmas sale on November 2. I painted some wooden keychains which debuted at this show and proved to be quite popular.
I've got a busy few weeks coming up actually. I'm participating in a new (for me) event next Sunday October 13 at The Marsh Street Centre in Clarksburg. I've been at the Centre before but not at this particular show. I'm looking forward to it. After that there's the November 2nd at Ormsby's then a Meaford Museum show November 16. I'm going to wrap things up for 2019 by returning to The Marsh Street Centre December 7.
I've been struggling since the beginning of September (Labour Day to be exact) with sore throat issues which I thought were resolved with a reluctant trip to my doctor's office. This resulted in my being given a course of antibiotics as it was diagnosed as a bacterial throat infection. It disappeared just as I was finishing the prescription but made an unwelcome reappearance shortly afterwards and has continued to do so with brief periods of pain-free swallowing. I'm not a fan of doctor's visits and I'm hoping that my body decides to tell the sore throat to get a grip and jog off but today I'm not well. I'm giving until Thursday in the hopes that I'm not going to have to go.
That's it for now! Blessings to you all.
