Now that I’ve realized have a approximately one week to work on this month’s #100Speak compassion post – and I am not at all ready – and that November, and NaNoWriMo, will soon be upon me as well, I’ve decided to give my overloaded brain a bit of a rest, and try very, very hard to steer clear of controversy for the next week.
In that vein, I thought I’d share some pictures I took yesterday at the Taste of the Catskills festival, and on the way there & back. And the rooster – who was doing quite a bit of crowing – did not want to be ignored even though the lighting in the barn wasn’t the best. It was picture perfect weather – cool temperatures, low humidity, and clear skies. I always claim that Fall, particularly October, is my favorite time of year at home – yesterday’s festival reinforced that. I particularly liked this one because it was truly a family-oriented farm festival (on a working farm), and reminded me more of what country fairs are supposed to be – not the midway-focused things that the local county fairs have become.
