This was my second year entering my canned goods and I think I did pretty good. I only won two blue ribbons which disappointed me a little, but there's always next year. I also won six red ribbons. I only say that I'm a little disappointed because I worked so hard to follow all the rules in the County Fair Guide that we get every year.
I carefully selected which jar in each category to enter, then packed them in one of my favorite baskets and headed to the fair grounds. Don't you just love baskets? That's my favorite way to transport things back and forth, especially covered dishes.
With my BIG winnings check, that sweet hubby of mine is going to the western store for a new pair of Wranglers. I made this decision last Sunday when I sweetly and casually looked over at him in church (because I'm always proud that he is sitting there, so close, and loving God) and thought to myself that I was tired of seeing him in those yucky jeans. Like a good wife, I leaned over and told him the plan (my plan) to which his reply was that he just got them broken in and didn't want a new pair. Of course we all know that he will be getting a new pair of jeans!
I'm gearing up to enter a local holiday cooking contest for the third year in a row plus trying to tie up loose ends on Matt's grade 10 work and get it sent in to his school. This Friday, my precious baby neice Lily will be 1 year old! Her exciting little party is scheduled for Saturday and I will have the honor of making gourmet vanilla cupcakes for it. YUMMY!
It's a busy time around Lillie Mae Acres, but also a beautiful time of the year so it's all balanced out! I hope you're having a blessed autumn/fall and enjoying whatever activities are going on in your neck of the country. As always, thanks for dropping by. Don't be a stranger!
