We had the opportunity to attend the fair this past week. Ah, nothing like the sights and sounds of excitement. I grew up without a fair since I grew up in the city. I love the rural life I live and never tire of the blue ribbons awarded to gardeners and crafters. I did not enter any of my knits, I never do.
Truth is I'm too lazy to drive them there and pick them up! However, I can appreciate other people's talents and I can get some nifty ideas.
The downsize of attending the fair is the after effects of eating non-healthy food. Sigh. I need a salad, I crave a salad! Thank goodness this event only happens once a year. My body requires a year to recover from the decadence.
If you know me at all, you know I gravitate to the barns to see the animals. Sheep and goats are my absolute favorites. My husband would love to own some farm animals - I just like the daydreaming portion but I doubt the reality of tending farm animals would be easy and carefree. I believe it's work.
My week has been busy. My daughter and son in law are both here - every day we have something going on and it's been fun having a full schedule, full table setting at dinner time. I find pockets of time to pick up my knitting so the second sleeve is still seeing progress.
Oh hey! The temperatures are down to regular fall-like feels. It's about time, I was cold yesterday when the sunset and that was a feeling I'd like to bottle up and keep close to my heart forever. Maybe just maybe we are done with those pesky heat waves.
