Ag Day

Yesterday was Ag Day at Finn's future school, which is also my elementary alma mater (go Falcons!)

There were some interesting household appliances on display.




The local bakers, wool spinners, beekeepers, and farmers sold their wares.



This little biker showed off his dimples and his croissant.



There were sheep dog trials -- I tried to get Humphrey to take notes on the perfect behavior of those working dogs but he just wanted to chase the sheep; needless to say, he had to stay on-leash.



And some of the parents put together a delicious taco lunch to benefit the new school garden.



The garden is growing well, the worms are composting, and the scare crow is... scaring crows.




And I came home with a full belly, a few tasty treats, some seeds for the winter garden, and of course some crafty goodness.



How did you play this weekend?

  3. Wow! Wish I could have been there. I would have had to stop & gaze @ the old appliances for a bit. Still working on revamping my bedroom set. Have to work faster before the blues catch up with me. I feel like I haven't done anything creative in weeks. But it hasn't been that long PLUS I am being creative. Just dunno. Have. To. Finish. Up! Cheers, Julie

  6. Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
