I had a bit of a slow Saturday yesterday. I've had a sore throat in the afternoon/evening for the past week now. This usually only lasts 2-3 days then goes away for a few weeks then comes back. Things are still in bloom down here so probably allergies. I'm enjoying my night blooming jasmine even if it might be causing my sore throat! Might have to go have a strep test just in case as it has been lingering for a while now.
We also took a trip to the pumpkin picking patch on Friday afternoon after the kids were done with school. It was a beautiful day wandering around the corn maze - a very small one compared to up north. The kids always go to the end of the patch to pick their pumpkins. They each got one to carve on Halloween and a gourd for their desk in their rooms. We also got 3 huge sunflowers which we are enjoying inside for now. After they droop too much we'll let the chickens have the sunflower seeds! Would you believe... I switched my purse to a small cross shoulder bag and left my phone at home! No photo's and it messed up my plans to call ahead to order dinner for pick up on the drive home. The pumpkin patch was about 25-30 minutes from home and 15 minutes from restaurants on the way home. Oh well. We all survived but I was disappointed about the no photos from the patch this year.
After a run to Joann's with Emily (and masks on!) to get brown fabric and raffia to drape over the back end of a horse.... to make him into a broom for the dress up part of the horse show, it was time to bring her to her riding lesson. She is planning to be Sarah Sanderson from Hocus Pocus and her lesson horse Lance will become a broom! The horse show is on Halloween. She has only done one before from when she first started riding.
