Today there is thick fog. As the day has gone on the fog has thickened and there is no sign at all of the Autumn sun burning it off. Now it is half past three in the afternoon and so soon the dark will be coming down.
What to do on such a day. The farmer always finds jobs to do. This morning he took his fancy little digger five hundred yards down the lane to dig out a ditch for a neighbour.
I went into town with friend W as I usually do. We both did our little jobs and then met with friend C in our favourite cafe for scones and coffee. We sat in the window and before long friend W walked past;we knocked on the window and she came in and joined us. For a good hour we just sat and chatted over our coffee and scones and so passed a pleasant morning.
Now, late afternoon, as it gets dark and the fog thickens, it is time to light the log burner, empty the dishwasher, feed Tess and settle down to watch Antiques Road Trip - one of my favourite programmes. Not a wasted day at all and one with plenty of laughter this morning with pleasant company.
