A Fall Walk

Yesterday evening Emily and I took a nice fall walk. The air smelled just like fall, the beautiful goldenrod were in full bloom, and now Emily is sick today with allergies! Guess that is what happens when you walk right through the goldenrod patch. I never had too much trouble with them, so didn't think about little Em having allergies to them. Now I know!!

We were supposed to make a batch of cheese today, but we didn't get any sleep last night. If Emily don't feel well and can't sleep, she will see to it that the rest of us is up too! Of course today, despite feeling under the weather, she is quite chipper. Ugh! Wish I was.

So, instead of making cheese, I've been working on signs and printing out recipes for the Pumpkin festival next week. I'm getting excited about it! I'll take this afternoon and tomorrow to make sure I have enough cheese cut up for this coming Saturday in Marietta, and then next week starting Sunday evening or Monday, I'll start packing like crazy for that weekend.

I'm actually pretty proud of my signs. I used the computer mostly because I know if I make signs free hand, it would be better to just have Emily make them for me! I'll get some pictures up of those soon.

A silly, self-portrait family picture...

It's not officially fall yet, but it is close. I see some people putting their pumpkins and scarecrows out. I'm a little behind, I guess.

I getting things organized for the Pumpkin Festival. Found a nice piece of material to use as a tablecloth. It has a fall "feel" to it, but not loud and noisy like some of the vinyl table cloths seem to be. Still working on my signs. Just can't get it right. At least I have a little over 2 weeks to get things prepared. This will be my first year going, so it will be somewhat different than going to the weekly farm market. I will be set up Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10 until 5. But, it is usually busy! Emily will be staying home with daddy, at least the first day or so.

Emily has started writing!! We're so surprised and excited. Her first written word.....Ohio, then shell, Emily, hi, he. She's actually recognizing most of her sight words. Amazing! Of course I am bragging a bit, but I guess that is a mom thing!

Not too much else going on around here in the way of exciting. Just this and that.
