Rain, Rain, Go Away


Oh my. It's October! And it's a Tuesday! Where does the time go? I hope you all thoroughly enjoyed your respective weekends. The gray skies and the drizzly rain made it very clear that we are stepping up our Fall game here in New England. It also decided to give me a kick in the ass by throwing in a few downpours on the very day I attempted my annual trip to the Deerfield Fair.

You read that correctly, nerds. I didn't make it to the fair.

It was kind of a blow, the first year in the past 15 that I was unable to get it together. But the thought of walking through mudslides of pig poop and getting stuck in the steamy poultry barn with a hundred shrieking children, all in the torrential cold rain? I would go to almost any length to make it to my favorite event of the season, but even I am not that big a glutton for punishment. And I didn't want Chris's first fair impression to be horrendous, after all. But there are a few options: we could attempt an appearance at the inferior Topsfield Fair next weekend. Or we could simply accept that we will have to wait another whole year for the 4-H equestrian show. Only 364 days left!

Fortunately, the travesty of my Deerfield absenteeism was somewhat tempered by the sheer awesomeness of the rest of the weekend. Saturday we went up to scenic NH to do some apple picking- and by apple picking, I mean wandering around the orchards performing a taste test on the different varieties of apples and gawking at the giant pumpkin patch while Chris scared me silly by telling me snakes live in pumpkin patches. And having yesterday off was no small deal, either. Sleeping in till 8:30 is a treat in itself, but then having the whole day to wander around the city... well, I think we could all use a few more long weekends in our lives.

Yes... I cried a little bit. The disappointment still lies heavy in my heart. But there's still next year. And hey, maybe you can come!
