We were busy yesterday- We started our day by picking strawberries and were done by 9:30. Then, we went to the Oakbrook/Ashley Riverfest. The fact that it was free caught our attention. We parked at the BI-LO and rode the bus to the Jessen Boat Landing and got a hand stamp so we could go to Fort Dorchester and not have to pay an admission fee. It was an interesting adventure. So, we loaded onto a school bus, rode over to the landing, got off the bus, got the stamp, and got back on the bus! I think the purpose of this trip was for us to spend money at the vendors there, but they really didn’t have anything we wanted! Then we rode the bus over to the Fort and enjoyed a bit of living history from the Revolutionary War era. We both love that park-we have only been once before, but there just seems to be a peaceful feeling there that we enjoy.
After that we rode the bus back to the BI-LO and drove over to the Frothy Beard microbrewery to give them a couple of the jugs we have collected. We tasted their Coconut brew, and it was good-those guys are having a lot of fun brewing beers with flavor, so it makes it fun to taste them. Another had ginger in it, so it was kind of like having Japanese food! The last time we were there they had a Jalepeno beer, and that was like eating Mexican food!! This time we were lucky enough to watch one of the brewers in various stages of the brew making and that was a treat!
After that, it was time to head home and get a little scrapbooking done-after all it was Inter National Scrapbooking Day! I made a couple of pages and then this morning I posted a few more to Instagram-I plan to post 4 more to make a total of 20 for the holiday. The folks at Big Picture Classes are trying for 10k to be posted before the end of the week end and they are at 5k + now, so it just might happen!
Today we plan to wash clothes, make jam, go for a ride, and I want to finish up 4 more pages! Tomorrow is our 19th wedding anniversary, where has the time gone?
Oh, and did I mention that I love our Sheppie dogs-there is no better way to wake up in the morning than to have a Sheppie dog or two give you a good morning snuggle!
I did have a realization this morning- The past couple of weeks have been hard, I had a toothache, and then an allergic reaction to antibiotics and was just having a difficult time seeing the positive, and apparently when I feel that way, my scrapbooking creative mojo slips away- I am back seeing the glass half full now and the pages are happening again- Hurrah!
