Going to the Fair (be back soon!)

Sorry for my light posting. I have been a bit ill. Perhaps it was a reaction to Noodlebug's spectacular fall. Anyway, I have the day off tomorrow and we are going to the county fair. I grew up in Texas and still consider myself a Texan. It has been strange for me to live in a town of 54,000 for the last three years. I went from Dallas to San Antonio to Denver to...a little town in Sonoma County. It has been an adjustment. I have to admit I like living in a smaller town. And it is fun to have a neighbor that keeps chickens, a large garden in my backyard and horses and sheep down the road. Growing up, I looked forward to the State Fair of Texas every fall. It is HUGE!!! (as thing in Texas tend to be) The Sonoma County Fair is a bit smaller but you still get the fair experience of handicrafts, livestocks and fair food. I have to admit that I am a sucker for a funnel cake. My mom loves cotton candy and candied apples. Several of my friends have entered handicrafts in the fair this year. It never crossed my mind to do that but I have decided I'm going to do it next year. Just for the fun of it!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!!!
