Random Bits

We are doing various things today.... taking DH's work truck in for repair for the second Saturday in a row. (Small wonder there, with all the miles he drives!) We did a quick breakfast out cuz I had taken Nolli dog with me. And then we garage-saled our way back across the valley. Great fun and a few good finds.

This weekend is "Valley Days" in our little berg. It started last night with the Firemen's parade. We had our own "Valley Region" and 7 other townships participate with 45 trucks, tankers and rescue vehicles coming down our street... lights flashing, sirens blaring, and lots of honking. It was loud and fun!

Tonight, we will go up to the old school grounds and "do" Valley Days. Our friend Tim has a band that will be playing in the gazebo at 5. We will go and give them some support! And we hope to have grilled corn on the cob and roasted chicken for dinner. (That sounds really good!)

Yesterday... I did errands in the morning, but had to rest as I could feel the barometric pressure changing with the coming storm and my back was hurting. I managed to rest for about an hour. DH actually made it home on time yesterday... unusual for a Friday! We had a good dinner of grilled sirloin, homemade greenbeans with onion and bacon and some fresh homemade potato salad. It was yummy!

Thanks for reading... be blessed!

Hi Suzanne: Small town parades are a lot of fun. It brings the community together. I always love watching them. Local people put a lot of effort into them as well.
Hope your Sunday is equally as pleasant as today.
Best always, Sandra
