Blueberries, anyone?


Today was the Blueberry Festival at one of the local churches, and I was in the mood for blueberry goodies. I headed to the festival fairly early and was surrounded by people who were also in the mood for the pies, muffins, cookies, breads-you name it-all filled with blueberry goodness.
I loaded up my bag with bread, muffins and cookies-items sure to please the family later today.
I also took a chance in a raffle of a beautiful handmade wooden clock-it would look lovely in my living room! Later tonight, I will partake of the local Elks club Chicken BBQ-half chicken, coleslaw, biscuit and potato salad, all for the grand price of $6.50.
Our local agricultural fairs are starting up, but they can get expensive with rides and all. Plus this rainy weather hasn't been favorable. I usually have a couple of favorites I go to, where admission is cheaper and the midway is smaller-my daughter tends to want to do everything, and if I went to the bigger fairs, we'd be broke! They also have bicycle raffles, which are lots of fun. Deja would love to WIN a bike and have her photo taken at the fair with the other winners.
Well, heading out to check on the garden and get some housework done. Hubby is gone to a friends to work on his car. Deja is watching cartoons are proclaiming loudly that she is BORED. (what she wants, actually, is to get back on my computer so she can play on the Webkinz site!)
Don't forget my giveaway ends tonight! Make sure you get your entries in before Midnight! I will put all the names in a little bowl or something and have Deja pull out the winners name. Scroll down for the original post and leave your comment! Good luck!
