The Harvest Festival in town last Saturday was nice. Our two younger children participated in the pedal tractor pull. They did well. No trophies, but a vow to get their legs stronger for next year. The farmer's exchange included chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs and kittens. There were also giant pumpkins grown by one of my new neighbors. Huge. This same neighbor brought us over some watermelon and it was great. Here in northern Minnesota, it's not easy to grow full size melons. Got to get his secret. At the festival, there was also a classic car show, which my ds loved, and a flea market.
I think that the festival officially started the fall season. Since Saturday, we've had rain (praise the Lord) and the temps have dropped. We had a high of 49 yesterday. We still have to get the furnace in. I've been stoking up the wood cookstove on the backporch every morning. I've even been cooking breakfast on it.
Time to get breakfast on and school started.
Stop by again.
