We are ready. The camper is in at the fairgrounds, the tack boxes are packed, groceries are in the back of my Durango for me to take into the camper. The fan cage is at the fair grounds, thanks to a 8:00 run in there last night. Oinky Doinky has had one last bath. I’ll wash Oreo, Alli and Daisy on Friday for Jessie while she is at school. I'm working until noon and then I am out of here.

My tomato sauce is canned, the beets are canned, the corn is froze. I got my quilts into the fair on time (with 10 min. to spare actually), and I have the cookies baked for 4-H snack for Thursday night (cut out cookies in the shape of various animals). Dinner for tonight is ready (sloppy joes and pasta salad). My baking entries in the fair are sort of made – the cake is baked, the bread is baked, I’ll do the cinnamon rolls tonight when we get home from decorating and taking the animals in.

I have one of my current knitting projects in a bag ready to toss in the camper – just in case I need some ME time while at the fair. Hopefully Dawn will like the color.

As you can see - I will be able to upload pictures of the fair from my phone.

If you are around the Wayne Co. Fair – look us up and help cheer her on. Jessie shows Saturday (steer show), Monday (pig showmanship), and Tuesday (market hog, beef breeding and feeder calf). Oh – and both kids will be doing the kiddie tractor pull Sunday afternoon. We’ll be in one of the barns most of the time.

Here's to a relaxing fair:)

I second Gail- it would be fun to go to a fair sometime. The kids are doing A LOT! I don't think we have anything similar around here...

Can you freeze corn??? I have 5 ears in my kitchengarden-LOL!- growing corn is not going to make us rich...!
