The box of 17 Hefty gallon bags is $1.00 and the box of 30 Hefty gallon bags is $3.28?!

We said on the grass and shared an Elephant Ear and Funnel Cake. The kids snacked and ran around letting off some steam. Shortly after this we were trudging to our cars and minutes later Caycee and Cooper were sound asleep.
We had fun and wore ourselves out. The adults had the kids outnumbered but it sure didn't feel like it. If we do this again I think we need more adults!

On a positive note, all of the photos were on display so Sarah and John's photos of Cooper are all over!
UPDATE (07/21/09) When I picked up my quilts I spoke with a couple women who were working in the building where the exhibits were displayed. They were very nice and agreed that the quilts needed to be displayed. They said space was a problem but were planning to try to figure something out for next year. They also said one of the women working during judging "lived" on my map and recognized several farms!

And I punked out with the quilting design. I doodled pages of different quilting designs and yet I'm doing a meandering all over. Too scared to try something new when I don't have time to rip it out if I don't like it.

I have enough greens leftover for another Map Quilt but I don't think I'll be doing this again anytime soon.
I decided on one border for the Trip Around the World. I really didn't want the quilt to be too much bigger and just wanted to frame it a bit. That's going on the quilt frame today and will be ready for the Fair too.
Did you know . . .
that a reaction can take up to a week or more to show up? I didn't know what kind of wierd disease I had with a rash showing up on my forehead, my left wrist, my right forearm. There are a lot of ugly rash diseases on the internet!
that poison ivy/oak rash develops blisters? BIG blisters. I didn't know skin could stretch that far and that fast. And when they (sorry gross) leak and deflate, they fill up again.
that I am a total baby when dealing with pain? Whining, crying, pouting. Big baby.
that in spite of a weakened immune system due to MS drugs, Scott is apparently still immune to poison ivy/oak? Good thing cause when I whine, cry, and pout he can feel bad for me instead of saying he's got it too and it's not that bad. UPDATE: apparently he IS susecptible - breaking out all over. Poor guy.
that children under 5 are seldom suseptible? Thanks for that one God, because Zak was in it too.
So if you are thinking of taking a walk along the I & M Canal, which is a very nice place for a walk, DON'T TOUCH THE PLANTS! Better yet, don't ever touch anything green. Just to be safe. I know I won't. Ever. Really.

DON'T TAKE THIS ONE FOR GRANTED!!!
I'm so grateful for my health.
I'm really enjoying walking these days. I'm a morning person and my energy generally fades away to nil sometime shortly after dinner (usually by dessert). I thought for a while that if I didn't walk first thing in the morning it wouldn't happen. But my brain wants a cup of coffee first, my belly hollers for breakfast and my hair sticking up in all directions is a good indication that I should shower first before heading outside where I can be seen. (At least one person will pass me on the road. Maybe.) Coffee drunk, breakfast consumed, shower done (hair tamed). I don't want to get all sweaty now - I just showered. So evening walks it is and it's not hard to get out there - I surprise myself. I so enjoy walking. So much that last night it was raining softly and I was really disappointed. I thought of walking anyway - I'd get wet, so what? - but I guess I'm not THAT addicted yet. (Pat, I bet you'd just go and get wet, right?)
