Weekend to short

Have you ever wanted to make the weekend longer and the work week shorter? Saturday was such a beautiful fall day even though September hasn't officially arrived. We took off with no particular destination in mind. We ended up in Fall City, Nebraska at a street fair. I hadn't been to one of those in many years. It was fun looking at the old cars, trucks, and tractors on display. If the 1937 ford had only had a rumble seat, it would have been like one my brother owned many moons ago. We could hardly wait until he got home so that we could ride in the rumble seat when we were kids. Of course, my hubby like the t-bird convertible. He always wanted one of those. .
There was craft tents, carnival rides, entertainment of all kinds. Many food vendors so you had plenty to choose from. They had the emergency trailer in case someone got to hot. I do know that wheel chairs don't roll the best on cobble stone streets. It was a fun day with the evening ending with splitting a steak and rib dinner. My hubby ate the steak and I had the ribs. The dinner rolls fresh out of the oven with honey butter was to die for. It is the best dessert that you could possibly ask for. 
I keep praying for my friends on the East Coast that they survive the Hurricane. I have heard from a few, but I still have some I would love to hear from. It could just be a one line post, but then I know there is a good possibility they have no electricity. Ours here in some areas of town was out for a week. We were lucky where we live and only lost it for about 6 hours. 
I got my quilt back from the quilters. I tried to take some pictures, but I don't like them. Anybody have any suggestions how to get a good picture?
I was pleased with the way that it turned out. 
My nephew and family have arrived from Arizona for the wedding this weekend. I haven't seen him for over a year or I should say when his other daughter got married. My sister and her husband usually flys out there for the holidays. She says that way she doesn't have to shovel the snow and worry about the cold. 
I don't know where the month has gone. It seems as though it just started and it is gone. Maybe it is because we are getting older. Have a great week.

We are ok here....just a huge mess to clean up now from the storm. We had our roof leaking, one bathroom leaking, water in the basement and our yard is a mess. Our pool also looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon lives in there now!! Hopefully we can get everything cleaned up soon!

Glad you had an enjoyable day on your outing!

Love,

I feel the same way about the weekends! Sounds like yours was really nice which makes it even harder. We dodged the storm here in Central Florida. Just had some rain. Our afternoon thunderstorms are worse that what Irene brought us. Thank goodness. Praying for everyone who is trying to recover.

Shirley-
I know just how you feel! This summer has flown by- the weekends are never long enough- and for me- there aren't enough hours in the day!! My life is a whirl sometimes- do you think that means that I am too busy?!!

Hugs-
Vicki
