Carole's ToT consists of sharing 10 Things We Did This Weekend. The request couldn't have come after a better weekend as our weekend was full!
Saturday graced us with perfect fall weather, which was just what we wanted for the annual Harvest Fair at the SOUL Garden. Along with the monthly work day, preparations were made for an unknown number of guests. Tables were decorated, a fire pit filled with kindling, and bails of hay were placed to create seating around it. Weknew participants would want to stay warm by sitting near the warmth of a fire.
The weekend not only was full, but it created in me a feeling of gratitude, as I felt the bounty at my fingertips.
This weekend I watched as little folk decorated pumpkins and...
I visited with our citiy fire fighters and paramedics (before they were called away on an emergency).
I went on a hay ride and as we rode by a haunted cabin, we were frightened by zombies!
I learned from Dr. Dread that his horn is called a euphonium.
I kept the fire going when the temperatures started to fall as the sun went down.
I watched the sunset and took multiple pictures of the changing sky.
Smith wanted me to see the amazing black widow spider his buddy created out of a electric cart of some sort. I'm not often afraid of spiders, but this one would rise up and try to bite!
We sat around the fire long after dark and listened to 8 year old zombie stream of conscious 'scary' stories.
Sunday the day was much colder, and started with a sprinkle of rain. We braved the chill and went to the local farmer's market. The squashes and pumpkins, and other veggies for fall harvest, filled the booths. By afternoon the sky was clearing and the sun was out to warm the air.
The best part of the weekend was spending it with Smith. It has been a month of Sunday's since we had two weekend days together. Who knows when we'll be that lucky again.
