Whew! Busy Days
What was so hectic? Well, I chaperoned my grandson's field trip to Dollywood last week. It poured rain most of the day, but when you've paid for a field trip, you go. The park wasn't closed because we didn't get any lightning. At least it wasn't hot. Wandering around in a park wearing a rain poncho and trying to keep up with a bunch of 5th grade boys took the wind out of my sails. I think I would have preferred the heat over rain. Oh well. We did have fun and didn't worry about sunburn or dehydration.
Last weekend, my granddaughter and I attended the Scottish Games in Greenville. The pic at the beginning of this post is the band Albannach. It's not the games if they don't play. Seriously, if you've never heard of them, check them out. We watched the competitions synonymous with highland games, ate food, listened to the drum and bagpipe corps, danced to the highland bands, giggled over the sheep herding, and more. The fish and chips this year were the best I've had yet, but I'm bummed I missed out on the shortbread. They always sell out, and I didn't get to that vendor's booth in time.
It was a fun day and this past Saturday was not too hot, either. Perfect weather for a day outside.
This weekend, I'm heading to ConCarolinas 2022 in Charlotte. Here's my schedule:
If you happen to be at ConCarolinas, please stop by and say hi. If you mention you read my blog, I'll give you a gift in appreciation.
