Well, OK, so it’s not technically fall yet for another three weeks. But it’s September, Labor Day has passed, most of the kiddies have started back to school, and there are Pumpkin Things on the shelves in the stores, so it’s sort of mostly fall, anyway. It’s honorary fall, that’s the ticket.
I don’t know why I’m so eager for fall this year – usually it’s because I’ve had my brains parboiled in July and August scorching heat, and I’m ready for some beautiful 50-degree mornings. But we’ve had substantially fewer than usual brain-parboiling days this summer (about which I am entirely happy!) and so there’s not quite the usual “please deliver us from this unrelenting heat” angle to the whole thing. But still, summer has had its day in the sun (less sun than usual notwithstanding), and I’m ready to move on to fall!
…besides, we have all these nifty fall soaps and such (two more coming out tomorrow, and the last two next week), and show season starts back up for us soon (watch this space to see where we’ll be headed first), and I’m just ready to get going! We took the summer off from doing shows, and while I think it was probably a good idea, I really have missed chatting with customers and the general hustle and bustle of craft show life.
So anyway, let’s hear it for all things autumnal, and I hope to see y’all soon!
