Keeping Hope Alive

Today I had hoped to go to Castle Arkdale with my oldest daughter. They are open by appointment only and didn't answer their phone, alas, so we'll try again next week.

This weekend there are three sales to attend. woo hoo! Perhaps the inventory drought will be over. There are two library sales on Saturday morning. There's a library bag sale at 9:00 and then a library sale that starts at 9:30, approximately ten minutes away from the bag sale. It will be rush rush rush on Saturday morning and the children might whine whine whine. But it'll be worth it, I hope.

Then on Sunday is the fall festival at a rural church a half hour from here. We went to it three years ago and it was like walking into an Anne of Green Gables novel; it was almost excruciatingly quaint and charming. There was a cake walk. Classic midwestern food was served in the church basement, where the fixtures and furniture haven't changed in fifty years, I bet. There were several tables of used books outside on tables.

So that's four scouting trips in less than a week (assuming we make it to Castle Arkdale soon). It'll do me good to get away from the computer, blow the dust off my ScoutPal, and scour the shelves.
