rounding out the weekend
Oh well, I am not schooled in the traits of walking horses and don't have a clue what to look for. A couple of years ago we attended with a friend who trains, owns and shows walkers, but do you think any of what I learned from her was retained? Ha!
We attended with some friends from church and their neighbors, grabbed dinner en route to the Celebration, and had a ball. It was a beautiful summer night--nary a drop (ounce?) of humidity, a light breeze, and pleasant temperatures. The Celebration goes on for days and days, and this was early in the schedule so attendance was poor, but we had fun cheering on the youngsters (ages 6-11: so cute!), and the oldsters: 70+. Well, frankly, we cheered everyone we were having such a good time.
It was a weekend of outings, a very pleasant change from our usual stay-at-homeness, and I feel refreshed for the week ahead. It's going to be a Pampered Chef week, with a training meeting tonight, an all day training event tomorrow, open house Wednesday night and neighborhood party Thursday night. I've also got the September newsletter to get out for church, and put together a variety of other things for my day job, so it will be a full week.
Off to the hospital in a bit to see a parishioner who was admitted last night. This afternoon giving blood. On a roll!
Hope your week is off to a good start.
