Tuesday was an early day for me, I cleaned out the back of the van, put in things to go to Ru, a quick water of some things, and a slight delay while I let the bee wander over my hand until it flew off, then went over to the sisters house to pick her up and the AC unit still in the box. We made it to Salem in good time, and made a quick run through Wallyworld. They dont have Halloween out yet, which is surprising to me. Met up with Ru and Doug, transfered over stuff, Eldest Niece showed up on time, and after visiting, we went our separate ways. We went to Costco which was almost empty, and got the new Louise Penny mystery for the sister and then headed out to the Fairgrounds. We got princess parking right by the gate, and then oriented ourselves and found the pavillion where the horse program was. It wasnt very full, and it was a small show, but the sister was thrilled with the horses. I did ask a lot of questions for her, and after the show, they invited the people up to meet the horses and ask questions. I told sister to go up, and she happlily went and asked her questions. The two biggest horses were Percherons, and yes, the black horse was a Morgan. They also had a miniture horse in the show, and he was ten years old. We then went outside where they had their stalls and admired all of the horses, it looks like they have two sets for the two performances each day. All the horses were well taken care of, and they all had personalities to match. We then walked through the vendor aisles to get back to the Van and we then went to the restaurant to have dinner. Its happy hour all day long on tuesdays. After the meal it was take Eldest Niece back to her car and then home. We got in about 11ish. It had been a very long day. I did have a chat when I got home with what I call my door frogs, I have two of them hanging out by the porch light and they are so froggily cute.
At some point, my reflux kicked in, so it was a very long miserable night despite taking meds.
Wednesday, barely made it out to the car to leave on time for my VAMC dental appt. Traffic was reasonable and I got there early enough. When the appt was over, I ran into my doctor and chatted for a bit. I headed off towards Beaverton, running a few errands and looking for Halloween stuff. I did find a new Cleo de Nile doll at Target, and a few new books at B&N. Still havent found any new cargo pants in the stores in my size, but, ther is hope.
Today, trash prep day, and get a bit done outside, and water, its going to be very hot this weekend, so I doubt I will get anything done but watering. Still breathing in the awful haze from the forest fires, so being outside is a downer.
