So much to do!

August 4, 2010

Alas, I have been negligent in my blogging.  But I have a great excuse!  We have been swamped this summer.  We experienced a normal summer, so here’s hoping for a busy fall.  We have been painting our basement.  Next up will be the tedious job of painting 98 exterior windows and lots of trim this fall!  I will get to know ladders very well again.  In my youth I painted houses in the summer.

August is here, which means the Iowa State Fair is around the corner.  Of course I am biased, but I really believe this is the best State Fair in the USA.  It is the oldest, but also the best.  There are so many things to do and see in the ten day run.  Our weekends are full, but we still have some availability during the week days.  The fair is Aug 12-22.  It is indeed nonstop fun!
