The 7am alarm was an unwelcomed wake up call this morning but hubbie and I dragged ourselves out of bed for an early morning.
We rushed through chores, got the van loaded and were off by just a few minutes after 8am. It was an easy drive to market this early as there was no traffic to fight yet. I'm sure that will soon change.
We arrived and parked right beside the door where I always try to get so our stuff can easily be carried in. Daughter came in a little later and said she was surprised that she made it on time as she forgot to set an alarm.
We had a fairly busy day but not as good as you would expect with all the extra folks in town.
Most of the locals came early and left to get out of town before the crowds got too bad.
I was decked out in my regular apple attire for this day.
I stopped at Aldi for only a few things and was glad to get out in the country and in the peace and quiet.
After watching all the sweating people come through market from the street festival complaining of how hot and crowded it was on the street I had no desire to make a trip to the festival this year. I was tired from dealing with the heat inside market today.
When I got unloaded I helped hubbie finish the quail cage and get it in place. We are going to wait until after dark and use a red light to move them without them flying around. I will get pictures tomorrow of how much they have grown and their new home.
After we finished that project hubbie went to work on daughter's weed eater and push mower he brought here the other day to do some repairs on. I decided to start moving some of my Christmas decor down into the new storage building. I am looking forward to spreading out all the tools up in the gardening shed.
I used the golf cart to haul four loads down to the new building. I stacked the boxes and called it a night as hubbie went inside to watch a Nascar race on TV.
Rebekah and Daughter took Evy to the Apple festival this evening, she called and said they had a good time but the streets were still pretty crowded.
As I said last night there will be decade post all these last August days and in August 2004 I made these pictures of my Dolly who was still a puppy and d-in-loves dog Roxy, she had just gotten. D-in-love and #1 son had been dating only a few months at this time.
This is #2 son holding Dolly who has always loved for him to pick her up and rub her belly.
Good night and God Bless
