It is Monday Already?
I was not able to work on it that much this weekend. I did manage to add another 2 ½ inches to the back. It is coming along great. So far so good, no complications.
Driving to Ruidoso for the Oktoberfest was a beautiful ride. Living in the desert, we do not see many trees. Looking at all the greenery up in the mountains is extra special for us. Here is a shot taken on our way.
The weather could not have been better. We went to the Oktoberfest first because by the time we got to Ruidoso it was lunchtime. I had the polish sausage with sauerkraut and Chris ordered one Southwestern style. We each had a German draft with our meal. We sat and enjoyed the band. It was great fun watching people get up and dance across the floor. We then shared a piece of black forest cake and some apple strudel. There were about 40 booths selling crafts and stuff. Nothing that I had to have.
After awhile we decided to head out and walk around the shops in Ruidoso.
Ruidoso is kind of a little ski town. It has several shops on both sides of the road. The shops are great. One of my favorites is called No Bones About It. It is all cat and dog stuff. Here are some of the things I picked up while I was there.
So many things I could have bought but I wanted to take it easy on my wallet. They had a real cute terry bath robe with a ducky on the back I thought Haley would like for after her bath. There was also a pair of dog goggles I could picture Brandy wearing. That store is great.
Here is Cosmo playing with his bathed mouse. He loves it.
I finally planted all of those plants. You know you are out of shape when you exert your self a little and can barely move the next day. My muscles are slowly recuperating from all the gardening I did. I still feel like I have Popeye forearms but it is not stopping me from knitting.
