Fall – on the farm and at home

Our little St. Alban’s Episcopal church held a big annual fund raiser called Fall on the Farm in October. The congregation is small but the event attracted lots of visitors from all over the east county area.

Friends greeted friends.
 The cakewalk was a very popular attraction.
 My friend Sidney did a good job of guarding the cakes.
 The silent auction was a big success because the offerings were really nice. We sat a long tables and enjoyed a delicious dinner too.
 Back on the homefront I was preparing for winter with the help of my son and his boys. They arrived full of enthusiasm to insulate the underside of my house.
 Davis went to Home Depot and bought enough rigid foam insulation sheets to cover the area. He had store cut them in half so they would all fit in his SUV. They are bulky so he had to make two trips. The family crew worked pretty hard trimming and placing a couple of the sheets. They stacked them up and we all decided to find a skilled carpenter to complete the job.

How wonderful to have family to help!!!

The festival looks like great fun - I love smaller events like this that don't have the monstrous crowds.

It is a big job for a weekend. Definitely something a carpenter should tackle. But the guys were there for a visit - that's great.
Happy Autumn. Love, Del

How nice that your son and his sons came to help you. I am sure seeing them was the cream on top!
