It's Too Soon

Sunday was a fun day. Late morning drive to a town with a large place for a craft fair. I went with two friends and we went prepared to buy some gifts. I took my travel shopping bag my daughter gave me many years ago, it has gotten so much use but it still looks fairly new. I did find some amazing things at the craft fair as well as getting a chance to visit with the people who made everything. One lady crochets necklaces, which my friends bought several of before heading home. I bought only one necklace but I spent lots of time at a booth with greeting cards (one of my weaknesses) and I tasted some exceptional home made salsa and bought six pints of various flavors. Of course we stopped by the store for some bags of corn chips before coming home.

Another friend wanted me to join her and her husband watch the grandson play football at the high school field so I wandered down there in the afternoon. After a half hour in the bleachers I wished I had dressed warmer. And after half time snow flakes were coming down. Yikes. I did have on a heavy sweatshirt and a hat and gloves and took my travel mug of hot coffee but by the third quarter I told my friends I love their grandson but I had to get home and thaw out my frozen body. Next time I will over-dress and remove if need be, but gads, snow already? It's too soon.

I'll say! Surely there is some Indian Summer still out there, CiCi. Mercy! Glad you were dressed as warmly as you were, after all. But it still wasn't enough. Stay warm!! :-}

We had a dusting of snow here last week and now it is back in the high 70s, but that probably won't last for long.
I have gotten to be a bit of a fair weather fan when it comes to attending my grandkids games....I just don't enjoy it if it is too cold.

Yes, much too early!

Snow is a hard concept for me to imagine around here, we still have the AC on!

You're a good friend to sit their in the bleachers freezing as long as you did.

It does seem too soon for the S-word. We've gotten some in the mountains, but the football fans have remained flake free!

It sounds like such a fun weekend! But it freaks me out that you saw some snow flakes already!
