Tuesday, all day long…

and I am stuck here waiting to see if management comes to check out my back door and the hallway.  Of course I have been waiting since August 25 and no one has shown up yet.  I did call and remind them yesterday so I will have to stick around here this morning to see if anyone shows up.  I am not holding my breath though.
Sunday afternoon at the Marigold Festival was nice.  There were so many booths we couldn’t check them out.  We had to park some distance away and walk to the park.  After a couple of hours I was pooped and I had to beg my daughter to bring me home.  I did manage to take a few pictures and get a gift for my sister which I hope fits.
This is a shot of the lagoon which is at the park where the festival was held.  That is the Miller Senior Citizen’s Building in the background. 

And even though my Cardinals are not doing so great now, this was my favorite booth at the festival.  If I still had my own home I would have purchased this.
There were so many tents/booths that we couldn’t look at them all.  I would have loved one of those pictures.  Lots and lots of Halloween stuff there.
Just to give you a general idea.  There were over 300 booths/tents there.
Sweatshirts of all kinds to be found, ranging in price from $10 to $50.  The ones I found that I liked were not in my size.
Another picture of the lagoon.  There is a walkway around the lagoon and many people go there every day to walk for exercise.  In fact, after all of that walking my daughter and I did in the afternoon, she and my SIL went out there in the evening and walked several times around the lagoon for exercise.  I don’t know how this came to be called a lagoon but that is what the local folks call it.
It was a very nice afternoon.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.


  1. That looks like a lot of fun Beth, I'm so glad we could share the moments with you!

  2. I would have really enjoyed the day had it been possible to be there. It reminds me of the time I went to the nature park for the Hummingbird Festival. All kinds of things to look at as well as the banding of the birds and things to buy and a GOOD long walk. Know what you mean.

  3. Such a beautiful area you live in. I liked the pumpkin boxes. Thank you for sharing. I hope they tend to the issues of your back door and hallway. Remember the squeaky wheel ;-)

  4. Those are the kind of craft shows I like to go to. I haven't been in quite awhile.I love the
    whole variety thing.. you can find many items you can't get anywhere else. Glad the weather was good and the whole day sounded wonderful. Great shots!!

  5. Glad you had such a good time and a great day weatherwise too. It's always fun to look at all the things people are selling.

  6. Besides being a beautiful day, it sounds like you had a nice time with your daughter. I like looking at much of the same things you do, but rarely buy. Too much stuff already! Thanks for sharing all your pictures.

  7. Now that's my kind of day. Hope your back door is all taken care of...sometimes others just don't get in any hurry when it seems they should.

  8. what fun!...I'd have enjoyed a festival...

  9. Those are the kinds of festivals I love to go to.

  10. I love the pond . How beautiful .
    Sounds like you had a lot of fun looking at so many different things. Halloween already.
    I cant believe they have that stuff out already.

  11. Well done Beth! Looks like you had a beautiful day weatherwise. It made for great pictures. I enjoy these little photographic re caps. I wish more people would do things like this. I enjoy looking at the different locales.

  12. Your town has a lot to offer. It's a good thing to have family to share with too.

  13. What a beautiful place to hold the event. I love going thru all those kind of booths. I rarely buy anything just love looking. Don't have many things like that here where I live, but in the winter in California there are some great outdoor events like this with lots of booths and things to see. I mostly like people watching. Don't see many here in my neck of the woods. Take Care
