Saturday was a perfect fall day. After a brief debate to decide if we would work around the house or go out and about, we decided to venture to Bedford County for the day.
We started at a craft show at Bedford Elementary where a sweet reader stopped Mr. SP and told him that she reads my blog. It was my first time being recognized by a reader and what a delight it was to hear nice compliments from someone who enjoys my posts. Why didn’t I take a picture? That was certainly a missed opportunity.
Mr. SP enjoyed talking to Sam Spangler at the craft show. He makes really pretty boxes that would be perfect for decorative purposes or to be used for jewelry. Since I collect turkeys, Mr. SP couldn’t resist buying this cute turkey from Sam. If you are interested in a box or turkey, you can contact Sam at (BoxesbySam@Yahoo.com).
One competitor had a Hokie theme. The little boy in the background makes me laugh. He’s looking at me like I’m crazy to get my picture taken there. This booth sold SML glasses in Hokie colors to benefit a scholarship fund for a Franklin County student. I couldn’t resist supporting the cause. You can see one of the glasses on the table behind me.
Since the day was so nice we thought we’d go kayaking. Unfortunately, the water was too low to launch the kayak. If I was brave enough, I think I could have jumped to the top step to get on the floating dock.
It was nice to be out and about on such a pretty fall day. Getting a few Christmas presents purchased at the craft show was an added bonus.
What did you do this weekend?
