look at the sunshine. It is a glorious day for the start of the Marigold Festival here. As I have noted before, Pekin is the Marigold Capitol of the world. There all kinds of activities scheduled for today and tomorrow beginning with the parade this morning. Dozens of tents selling all kinds of crafts and items are set up in the park next to the lagoon.
This is a photo I took of one of the craft tents last year. Sadly my Cardinals have dropped the ball (pun intended) this year. http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/standings They are in second place behind the Milwaukee Brewers. For my Wisconsin friends, I wish the Brewers well!!
I am busy cooking in the kitchen this morning. My kids are coming over tomorrow and I am fixing chicken and stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and peach pie. And then I will be so stuffed I will have to lie down and take a nap.
So, I need to cut this short and get back to the kitchen. I hope you all have a peaceful weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
