What a fun Weekend!

Good Monday Morning!  Only 4 more days until the weekend! 

This past weekend was really a fun one for me.  Saturday was our closest town's Dogwood Festival.  It was originally started over 50 years ago when the local high school band sold Dogwood trees to make money to buy band uniforms and has gradually been taken over by the town.

This year the dogwood trees bloomed 2 weeks early so there weren't any in bloom, but that's OK it was still fun.  There is a carnival, concerts, craft shows, food vendors, the crowning of Miss Dogwood Festival, a parade and a 5K run.

My friend Mary and I did the 5k!
I'm in the black jacket.  I finished a respectable 4th in my age group and Mary walked it as she had surgery but still finished 3rd in her group!

Here we go!  I hate the beginning of a race.  I go 50 feet and want to quit.  I really have to force myself to run for about at least a mile and then I'm usually ok.

Then on Sunday, Dear Husband and I got the convertible '67 Camaro out and went for a Sunday drive.

The wind blown look!

We ended up down at one of the Marina's to look at the gigantic carp that people feed popcorn.  Do you see all of them?  There are hundreds and hundreds.

I am planning on planting most of my garden this week after work.  I put in 13 tomato plants and 4 eggplants this weekend.  I love this time of year!
Monday Blessings,

You had a great weekend! I'm jealous! I spent over 2 hours on Saturday watching a grandchild's production of "Rapunzel" without a single intermission! Yikes! I foolishly scoffed when the invite said 12:30-2:30. No children's play lasts that long. I would rather have been feeding popcorn to lie! =D
