Celebrating Farmers Day, Traveling, This Week, Hobby Hoedown Authors

Happy Monday, Dear Readers. 


National Farmers Day, formally known as Old Farmers Day, honors the hard labor of farmers throughout American history.  Last Monday on this blog, I shared a video of our community's  Harvest Festival celebrating the harvest and recognizing farmers who bring the fruits of their labor to our kitchen tables.  During the Harvest Festival, organizations and individuals build amazing structures made from hay called Hay Art. The public votes for their favorite display by donating food. I am happy to report the total amount of food given to local food banks by the entire community was over 8000 pounds!!

I'll be traveling this week and will not have Internet access. 

No Hobby Hoedown guest is scheduled this Thursday since I didn't think it would be good manners to have a guest author, then leave them here all alone. 

Take a look at the Thursday line-up for this fall. 
You're invited to return for some root-tootin' fun!

Thanks for visiting today. Have a great week!

Hi Ladies, thanks for stopping into the blog. We arrived safely to FL. Just got on the internet last night. Ready for a warm winter here escaping the snow of Michigan. I appreciate your support!
