In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Friday and Saturday....of last week!

Thanks for all of the nice comments.  Mom is doing fine.  Not sure about the bees yet, but I plan on checking on them tomorrow..... if all goes as planned.

I'm remembering to take pictures that good....or bad?
So LAST Friday, Mom and Dad were SUPPOSED to watch my Sister's child while my Sister and her husband went out of town for the night.  But that obviously didn't work out, so Vickie and I went.
We went downtown for their First Friday and they were having a "bed race!"
They decorate beds, dress up in characters, and race on a small made-up track.
Scooby Doo was there!

This is the winning team.
Then we went to Barnes & Noble.  I had to get a picture of this display as she is one of my favorite authors.
kind of Sad though....I find myself relating more to the older woman (the mom figure) more than the younger, romantic woman figure.  (I'm soon to be 56)
When we got back to my sister's house, I saw just enough port wine left over from the weekend before,
and I happen to know where she hides her dark chocolate!!!!  I sat down with my new crochet book/mag purchases, my wine, chocolate, my cousin Vickie, and HGTV!  I've hardly seen HGTV since we have moved because we have an antenna now.  Nice, relaxing evening!
I think I need to make this bag!
The next day, downtown, was the Old Mill Festival.  They cleaned up from the bed race pretty quickly!
I went to the old mill festival several years ago and I must say it has grown a LOT! 
There were venders lined up on both sides of two streets.  Probably around 50 vendors.

I wish this picture did the sky justice.  One time we looked up and saw several beautiful colors in the sky.
Everyone started trying to get pictures of it.
After having a great big ice cream cone, which I failed to get any pictures of, we went to Garden Thyme in Noblesville, (it's really in Clarksville, but I don't even know if that's on the map) on Highway 38.
My niece asked me if this was an old lawn mower!

If you've never been to Garden Thyme, you need to go.
She has great prices and fun plants.  I bought Robert Mitchum mint and a Chocolate scented geranium!

I also bough an orange mint, and I bought my niece a balloon plant, which she better have in the ground by now!

Oh yeah.....I thought my Sister and her husband must let their dog sleep with them since she climbed in bed like it was normal.  Apparently not!

Who knew?

  1. Cindy, You are young, so stop whining !! LOL. Even though chickens can out run you. :) I would have loved to have been to the garden place. Yes, that bag is right up your alley girl. I am going to read your past blogs, as I don't recall your mom not feeling well. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Susie. It was just the last post. Mom had a stent put in. It's the "very important post". Garden Thyme is still open and you can also like her on Facebook. I should have put that in the blog post.

    2. And PS... It's my bloge I'll whine if want to whine if I want!

  2. Oh, did that doggie see a sucker coming, or what??? Sounds like you had a great weekend. I'd love to visit that kind of garden center.

  3. That Garden Center looks like a place I would love!!!! Glad your mom is recovering nicely.....:)JP

  4. Those Festivals sound like great fun! My favorite garden center has advertised a half-price sale for tomorrow! It's possible that I'll come home with something.:-)

  5. Chocolate,orange, mint? why do I want ice cream now?
    Are you sure the dog go into bed all by herself?!!

  6. Good news about your Mom; I hope she keeps improving and challenges you to a race!
    You guys saw a sun dog! Quick, do you remember which side of the sun it was on? My Gran used to say that if it was on the left side you were about to travel unexpectedly, and if it was on the right side you'd stay home but welcome company would come see you. I always got too excited to remember which side of the sun it was on when I saw one, lol.

    1. I have no idea what side it was on but I'm going with the left!


Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment on my blog. I enjoy reading them. I hope you have a wonderful day.
