Friday was a good day. I didn’t get as much work done as I would have liked-which isn’t unusual, but I set high goals-but I partied hard all weekend. Holy cow, it was busy, starting with about 4 hours of R&R at the fair for a last hurrah. Watched the tractor pulls and then hit the games. I could no longer resist, and I’m a sucker for the coin roll and the ducky pull. (Which is where I got the tiara.) I also won three fish with a bucket of balls, so Mr. Fish has a buddy now in the tank next to him. Cotton candy and a big burger finished me off. The cat has since eaten the rabbit’s foot, and we lost two of the three fish, which didn’t surprise me, and I gave the tiara to my mom because she’s the princess. Guy’s frog is decorating our bed. We’ll see how long THAT lasts. -laugh-
Saturday was scheduled to the max with a trip to the farmer’s market, a coffee shop, and then swinging by to my mom’s to pick her and my dad up for a trip out to a nursery, something I’ve been waiting two weeks to do. We spent a couple of hours out there eating pumpkin doughnuts and picking out the last of my back yard plants and a few for my mom as well. I got a couple of fruit trees and I have big, long-range plans for them. Keep watching the drama box for stories of applesauce in about three years.
Sunday was a little slower with a quick trip into town to buy school clothes for Thing Two, followed by a family get-together for Thing One, who is going back to base next week, but I managed to wedge in putting the last of the plants I got Saturday into the ground before calling it a night and watching Heartbreak Ridge (DEMON RIDGE, DEMON BRIDGE, HEARTBREAK WITCH . . . possibilities . . .) before stumbling into bed and calling it a weekend. Dude, I’m tired. I can’t wait to sit at my desk all day.
