Fun Day

We enjoyed a visit to George Washington Carver's boyhood home today in Diamond, Missouri. They were celebrating Prairie Day. They had some wonderfully talented folks demonstrating old-time crafts such as spinning, weaving, soap-making, crocheting, quilting, wood carving, and candle making. They had live folk music. There were story tellers. It was just wonderful.

So begins festival season in Southwest Missouri.

Blessings to you!

*Edited to add
Emily told the conservation officer about throwing a rock and hitting a hawk in the head as it was trying to carry off our hen. We were worried that we'd be in trouble since hawks are protected in Missouri, but all was fine.

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
