animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

labor day weekend

We took full advantage of the holiday weekend and actually did some fun stuff for a change. On Friday, Brian and I went to the Ethnic Fest for supper (Jake was at a birthday party). Brian had pierogies from St. Mary’s, which is usually what I get, but I ended up having a delicious pulled pork sandwich from Shorty’s Italian Smokehouse instead. Even though Jake wasn’t there, I snagged 4 pierogies for his Saturday lunch.

On Saturday, we went to the Log House Arts Festival. We used to attend that frequently, but got away from it in recent years. I’m thinking about doing a craft show for Everyone Drinks next year (assuming I can get my act together and get some inventory made), so I’ve been trying to go to some craft shows to check things out (and I’m not doing a great job of that, either).

Yesterday, we went to the Cambria County Fair. It has been years since I have been there. Brian claims that we went once when we were dating, but I can’t recall doing that. Either way, it has been a long time. Jake’s been there a few times with the grandparents, but I think it’s been a couple of years for him, too. It was fun to walk around and check out the animals and other displays. And, I won a couple of goldfish for the pond, so that was cool, too.

Today, we had both sets of parents and our niece over for a cookout. We did grilled pizza and ribs. We have grilled pizza down to a science now. I’ll be sad when it’s cold out and I have to make pizza in the house.
