It only took me four days to fail the post every day thing. Ah well. These things happen.
I didn't get home from the Candy Dance until 6pm, then it was cook, eat, clean, collapse. The temperatures were in the mid to high 90's and the heat sucked all the life from me.
We had a fine time of it though. My friend K picked me up at 10 and it took us two hours to get there (we sat in traffic for close to an hour, it was that busy). We were okay with that though, as we haven't had an opportunity to yack in quite awhile. This gave us the perfect chance. Although the Candy Dance started as a fund raiser for the little town of Genoa (pronounce that Jen-O-ah), it's now a big craft fair. The fund raising part is still the sale of the homemade candy and the local food booths.
The important part is what I purchased. The following:
1. A "spoon" cuff for my friend K in Alaska. She tried to find one here at the Rib cookoff but was disappointed. I was so excited when I found it.
2. A 1961 dime charm. Sterling silver dime. For my charm bracelet.
3. Two leather cuff bracelets for the Princelings.
4. CANDY! Almond Bark, English Toffee, Peanut Brittle and Fudge (no nuts). Nom!
Today was sleep in, do laundry, pick up stuff, make dinner, make tomorrow's dinner, visit mom, run errands. Mom is good. Still big with the paranoia, the losing of things in her little apartment. Still doesn't want me to throw anything away. I managed to pry a newspaper from July 25 off her table and took it with me to recycle. But she's safe and healthy. All is good.
I'm going to watch "Sister Wives" and then go to bed. Tomorrow is gonna be a heck of a day.( Day 05 - Your definition of love, in great detail )( The rest of the Days )
