Oops… I had a busy day yesterday and was wiped out before I could post my Day 60, but what a fun day. Every year there is a local craft fair at the community building and the senior high school. Since my daughter was old enough to appreciate crafts we have tried to make it every year to the show and that is what we did yesterday. It was good to see the changes from last years popular crafts. My favorite of the new items was some beautiful decorated leather journals. They were out of my price range but they were wonderfully crafted. We did out usual stop to a repeat stand where they sell flavored pecans… had to get some maple ones, delicious! Then after we had been through both buildings we took a trip to the craft store for more inspiration. It was fun but the day had one more surprise.
I had stumbled across some information about an actual quidditch (as in the Harry Potter sport) tournament that would be taking place yesterday too. So we took a few minutes to she what a sport on flying broomsticks with magical flying balls looked like in an ordinary world. The players had broomsticks they had to keep between their legs, rubber balls to try to score and volleyball to hit each other with as a diversion. It was fun to watch for a little bit, but my daughter had to go to work so we couldn’t stay long.
It was a full day for me and I am feeling the fatigue and pain from being on my feet so long yesterday, but it was a wonderful day spent with my daughter continuing a tradition. Now we wait a year for it to return and offer more inspiration and the potential for a few early Christmas gifts.
