The kids and I visited the True Nature Country Fair this past weekend in the Flat Rock area. It was very simple and some might say quite primitive, and just what we needed for a stress free outing. There was stone soup, a few vendors, a few classes, felt purse making, seed ball making, snakes, turtles, skinks, draft horses, American guinea hogs, bees, chickens, tiny homes, gardens, face painting, banjo & fiddle playing, drum beating, and a whole lot of sense of community. I curse myself for not being more bold and getting potential like minded mom friends' phone numbers! Why is it so hard to make friends as you get older and why do I have to be so shy when first meeting people? I might have to just make that one of my new year's resolutions....be bolder. Anyway, we had a grand old time and the kids said that they had an absolute blast at this quite simple fair....just goes to show you that all you need are some instruments and animals for good entertainment.
Yes, yes a really lovely time and one of those places where I could sit and knit peacefully while the kids ran freely. Definitely the start of a new tradition I hope. Ok off to study for yet another test.
It is late and I need to wake up in a couple of hours for clinicals, so here is a super quick post. My daughter and I visited the quilt show once again this year and got to admire many beautiful quilts. Here is a compilation of some of the ones that we enjoyed.
Oh yea and the last picture is a Apple Cake that I made. Now time for bed.
