Friday, October 5

It's Friday

I just sat down to do a post and thought I should go out and visit first. My first stop was at Carolyn's Talk to Grams. While reading her post it dawned on me it's Friday. I have been functioning today as if it was Thursday. I've only been 60 for 3 days (is that right) and already I don't know what day it is!! LOL

Yesterday my girlfriend came over and we planned to go to the Pumpkin Festival. This is all we have talked about for a month. This has been an annual tradition for us for several years. As we were headed to the festival we got side tracked and never made it to the event.

The Pumpkin Festival offers activities for the whole family to enjoy. There are many, many booths of skilled artisans displaying their crafts. I usually am able to pick up an early Christmas present here. Also their are special exhibits and demonstrations such as blacksmithing, pottering making, quilting and woodworking. And, of course, there is every type of pumpkin food you can imagine to eat. If for no other reason, its worth going just for the food. What would a Pumpkin Festival be without pumpkin carving and painting contests for the little ones. This year I saw they have sat up a maze made up of hay for the children to enjoy.

The festival runs through Sunday, so I'm sure, if I can remember, I'll be able to go tomorrow.

Love the friends that allow you to get sidetrack and go down a different path.

The pumpkin festival sounds like fun- always a great feeling to get a jump on christmas shopping- also fun to see all the fall stuff out.

Came looking for your Friday's Feast and did not find one. But then if you don't know it's Friday... lol.

Hope you make it to your Pumpkin Festival this weekend... sounds like a terrific event!

Enjoy the Pumpkin Festival! I can't wait to take the kids to one in our area. I think I love it as much as they do.

The peanut butter pie is REALLY easy to make and very tasty. We give them out as gifts at Christmas time. They can be premade and frozen in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Silly rabbit....60 has nothing to do with being sidetracked by life! That happens to me all the time. I'm sure it was still Thursday some where in the world! Glad you were properly celebrated! Hope your weekend was glorious! Sending hugs from the Daisy Patch!
