It's Feeling More Like October 'Round Here...

...and I am loving it!!

It's making me think of apples and pumpkins and Halloween and the fair (sorry, Ami!). It's been so cool and dry and a little downright crispy in the mornings. I've been using my clothesline for drying sheets and towels and I've even been thinking 'bout making homemade vegetable soup! Okay, well, maybe it's not that cool. But it's getting there!!

Today is three weeks since I woke up with Bell's Palsy and it's completely gone now. I realize how blessed I am about that!! The Big Guy was really looking out for me with this thing. A lot of people have BP for months, sometimes years. We've had a couple of little patients come down with BP, along with a parent and then me, all in about four months. That's been a little weird, like something's contaminating the water around here!

Now back to the fair...I always, always forget from one year to the next what a major pain in the butt going to the fair is. Parking is a nightmare and it's crowded and usually hot and it's a lot of walking and you get WORE SLAP OUT but I don't remember HOW BAD IT IS until I'm there in the middle of it. 'Round about this time every year, I'm just la-la-la-ing along THINKING I want to go. Like today, I found out Montgomery Gentry is gonna be there this year. I LOVE MG!!! I want to go see 'em. I've seen so many great concerts at Reaves Arena. I've enjoyed every single one of them. Ones involving four long-haired guys from Alabama most of all. Plus I absolutely love fair food, from the Italian sausage sammiches to the fried Snicker bars. And I love looking at all the exhibits and the kids' crafts and projects, too. I don't know. I still have two and a half months to decide.

It won't be that bad.


  1. I have a lot of good memories from the Ga fair. :)
    You are correct about the lines, but yeah...I think you won't be able to resist. :)
    Fried snickers?? I've never had one! :(

  2. Yay! I'm so glad the BP is gone!! That's amazing!! Squee!!

    In other news, The Fair WILL be That Bad. For reals. You can go, but I guarantee those fried Snickers bars will not be Worth It!! I jus' ain't gonna be able to do it!!

  3. Shari, they take a frozen Snickers bar on a stick, coat it in batter, drop it down in a deep fryer, fry it 'til it's golden brown, sprinkle it with powdered sugar, wrap a napkin around it, take your $7 and hand it to you. It's heaven on a stick.

  4. I'm so glad you're feeling better! Mike and I made beef stew on Sunday, it was so cool outside. :-)
