So here is my drink for this week. It is a glass of Viognier wine. (pronounced Vee- own-yah for our non wine drinkers) DH had a short week last week, so Friday we decided to head over to the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles. It is such a nice big and CLEAN fairground, and we just enjoy going over and walking around, and eating, and this time wine drinking. Well, I am the one that was drinking wine, while DH went back into one of the buildings to check something out. It was a warn day, but there was a nice breeze, so sitting and sipping a glass of wine was perfect. They even had some samples of grape growing along the building, you can just make them out in the background.
Here are some pictures from the crafts building. Top four are art pieces from the show. I thought it was amusing to see some mixed media pieces. Then was a bicycle helmet somebody had doodled on, a room shot and a stunning quilt that caught my eye.
There was a metal statue in the fountain that I just fell in love with. It is an old cowboy and his horse....life size...stopping for a drink, and using his hat for a cup. The other old cowboy belongs to me....LOL I thought it was fascinating to see the women sitting and spinning yarn. They used different types of foot driven spinning wheels.
I had two giggling, squealing 8 year old girls all day. My oldest GD and her cousin, Rachel, who also calls me "Grandma:. I've know her mom since she was the same age. They had a sleep-over last night............sleep ? something I didn't get much of, and todays activities wore me OUT! But we had fun, they played dress-up, we painted pictures and colored Prima Doll stamped figures, then they cut them out, added craft sticks to the backs and made paper dolls, then we had lunch at McDonalds (someplace their parent don't take them.........so leave it to GM!!!! LOL) We experimented with water color washes and alcohol sprays, to show them how they don't mix, danced to their "music", sang to all kinds of music and just had a good time......Phew! They both have birthdays coming up and at lunch I asked them what they would be wanting and they began naming all these electronic things they thought they couldn't live with out, like an operating cell phone........yep! They got G-Ma's "your too young speech", then I asked them if they had been having fun, and they answered yes. Then I pointed out that I let them watch TV for about 30 minutes, while I made breakfast, then it was shut off and the music was turned on....... no electronic games, tv shows or cell phones and we had a great time.
Don't get me wrong, I really don't think there is anything wrong with the electronic toys......I own at least one of each....LOL But fun can be had with out them as a source all the time.
Okay, I'm off my soap box and off to bed. I an hardly keep my eyes open...........Now I remember why God gives the kids to the younger people......LOL
I'll be around in the morning to visit for tea, till then nite all!
