Elephant poo, destruction derby, and good company

I don't know if you guys noticed or not, but yesterday was a holiday. Weird, right? Yeah. It was also a very busy holiday, at least for me. I worked in the morning, shoveling elephant poo for five hours in 90 degree weather. Then I went home and cleaned up (much to my husband's joy), and we went to the fair.

We stayed there long enough to eat some horrible fried food, find some yarn my sister had spun (and won awards for!), and watch the destruction derby. On our way, we indulged in our yearly tradition-- buying a new set of high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets.

Then we went home AGAIN, changed AGAIN, and went to our good friends' house (Keriann Martin and her husband) in the evening. It was a very fun day, but a very long day, and exhausting to boot. I had a good time with everything, even work, especially with Keri and her husband, but I did not have any time to sit down and write a blog post as I'd foolishly hoped I might after an also-action-packed Sunday. So today's post might be a day late and a few dollars short, but here it is!

Tell me-- what did you do for the 4th?

Shoveling elephant poo would be cool at any temperature.

I guess you realize that if this was a zoo mystery, you'd find a dead body at the bottom.

Hooray for good company! We had an awesome time with you guys too :). I felt so bad for you when you said you shoveled elephant poo all morning AND went to the fair before coming to our house. Just the driving alone sounds exhausting. Especially when we played Apples to Apples well past the fireworks. (Though, Apples to Apples is a freakin' fun game.) Hope you're not too tired today!

Gary-- TOTALLY. Hmm... the wheels are turning...

Keri-- We had a blast! And I'm okay :) It was my crazy plan, after all, haha. Just hope I wasn't lame and unfun or anything.
