’s and my traditions is Topsfield Fair
. This fall is extremely densely packed (among other things with a trip to North Carolina to see my niece and nephew, whom we remembered at the Midway!), and often when we go to Topsfield it’s very crowded, so this year we decided to take a day off work and go on a weekday. By chance, the day that worked for us was today, opening day. The rain made it even less crowded than it otherwise would have been; we got to park right by an entrance. (We’re used to getting satellite parking and having to take a shuttlebus.)
We had a predictably fabulous time. Sheep and goats and cows and vegetables and bees and honey and baby chicks and piglets and oh so much fair food!
And I was enjoying it all with my darling honeywuzzle.
Life is good.
Oh, unrelatedly, last night was our first full-cast rehearsal of the one-act play we’re in. This was the first time we’d seen/performed the entire play (as opposed to individual scenes with just the people in them) since the original run-through. It was lots of fun, and I think it was going to be great!
