Creative Market, Nov 11 & 12
Friday and Saturday were busy with the craft festival that I did with Ginger.  We set up on Thursday evening.  The ladies of the church, where the show was being held, had made stew and cornbread for anyone that wanted to eat after setting up.  Well, of course, Ginger and I couldn't pass up stew and cornbread. It was sure good and we found out later it was just a sampling of what they would have the next two days.

First day

  Our friend, Sandra, came out to help us at the festival.  Thursday turned out to be kind of a slow day, but we enjoyed each others company and getting to sit and visit.  I think Sandra did get some of her Christmas shopping done throughout the day.  Now, back to the food.  On Friday, I arrived about 8am to do some finishing on the booth.  Jeff brought me since I was leaving at 5pm to attend the induction ceremony into the Alpha Pi Nu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society for our daughter, Ashlee. Breakfast was homemade biscuits and sausage gravy or homemade cinnamon rolls.  We settled on the biscuits and gravy since the cinnamon rolls were not finished baking yet, but they sure did smell good.   Lunch was Indian tacos and three kinds of homemade pies..coconut, chocolate and pecan. We were so full from the tacos, there was no room for pie just yet. I did get a piece of coconut to go the share with Jeff later in the evening.  About 2pm, Ginger went to get some tea and they had just finished making fried pies.  Well, couldn't pass those up..they were still hot.  Apricot or lemon...I got favorite.  They were DEEELICIOUS!!!!!!  So we all left that evening definitely full, in fact, almost miserable because none of us usually eat that much food in one day.
Our daughter, Ashlee,decided last fall to go back to school to become a registered dietician. We are so very proud of her as she is also raising our beautiful granddaughter, Emma. She has worked very hard this past year and was accepted into the program starting in January.  She has maintained a 3.8 GPA and was inducted into the Alpha Pi Nu Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society on Friday evening. Jeff, me and Emma attended the ceremony.

Saturday was quite a bit busier and the day went by pretty fast.  Ginger and I, however, did not eat as much food on Saturday.  We were still full from Friday((-:   We had a great time at the craft festival and hope to do it again next year.

Have a great week and give a smile to a stranger. It just might make their day.
