Fair time

Today was a full day. First of all we started our Saturday like many Saturdays...we made cups of coffee to go and set out to look for yard sales. I am VERY fond of going to yard sales and flea markets. It is a lot of fun finding hidden treasures...especially for such great prices. We have bought 99% of our boys' books from yard sales and they have roughly a thousand joke. I am very picky with what I buy because I have worked hard at de-cluttering our own house!! :) But, there are definitely great things that can be found.

After the 'yard-sale-ing' we came home for lunch and put the kids to bed, did some work around the house and then went to the 'Taste of Louisville' fair.

There were lots o'people around and it was pretty hot, but other than that it was a lot of fun. One of the things I love about the summertime is the abundance of outdoor fairs to visit.

I was also scoping out the area because I think that I would like to try setting up a booth for Labor Day weekend to sell my wares. I've never sold at a craft show or fair...I think I need to start though.

Off now for some tea and then to bed. We're trying to go to sleep earlier each day before our trip so we can try and minimize the impact of jet lag on all of us. Everytime I've gone to Europe I have been a useless lump for the first couple of days. We'll see if it works. I'm crossing fingers and toes!

Goodnight :)
