As of the last post,
I had returned from a nice restful weekend of painting.
did I hit the ground running!
Almost a week of fair preparation,
mowing, decorating and
even testing my limited carpentry skills.
Two DD days,
and Saturday brought the start of the fair.
High School Rodeo
Horse Pull &
Kitchen help on Sunday,
followed by the church service
and the crowning
of a new fair queen.
A tearful farewell to last year's queen,
who holds a really special place
in our hearts.
A visit overnight from the
Pennsylvania State Fair Queen
and her mother.
Quick sheet changes..
in moved Toodles the Clown
and her son for the week.
Better houseguests could not be found!
They made themselves at home,
and we enjoyed having them.
The fair brings it's own form of exhaustion
we were tired when it was over.
rest was not in the cards.
My Dad was admitted to the hospital last Saturday
bright and early,
I was on my way to Ohio.
I came home to see this.
Logan's first day of school.
After two years of watching his brother get on the bus daily....
he finally got to go along!
Excited doesn't begin to describe his demeanor!
I might have had a tear or two.
When did they get this big?
Thursday AM was back to Ohio.
My dad was having another procedure.
The results were good!
What a relief!!
My Dad is 80 years young.
I know that I have been blessed to have him in my life
for all these years.
I count those blessings daily.
I am counting them hourly this week!
These hydrangeas were outside the hospital.
And the scarves at the top?
That was four days of nervous knitting
sitting around a hospital.
A couple of more days of rest would be nice!
