The morning began with bill paying and dish washing...then I was off to the Fall Festival and Chili Cookoff !
Remember when I said that Pleasant Street has about two blocks of business downtown - well that was the section where the festival was. It was free - except for the Chili Cook-off. Tickets were $3.00 for kids and $5.00 for adults. This gave you a sample at each of the chili places - and there were a lot! There were at least 20-30 or more...and the samples were good size. I didn't do the chili tasting part - because there were only a couple of places that had mild chili - don't do medium or hot heat in chili...tummy can't take it.
Strolled around and checked out the vendors and groups that were having raffles. Bought two really pretty wooden cutting boards. They are 7-3/4" x 6-1/4" and 1-1/4" thick. Really pretty. And, only $2.00 each. Think the kids at the VoTech make them and they sell them for Special Olympics.
Then picked up a friend and we went to the quilt store grand re-opening. It was fun! And, got to see several demonstations - one on using the Angler Companion and the other on machine quilting. That one was super interesting!
Grabbed an early dinner and headed home...gonna read!
