The wonderful thing about this summer is how busy I have been with traveling, visiting, volunteering and ok, to be really honest … eating. I have a paper calendar in my kitchen with markings, circles, words that I have crossed off or used ‘white out’ to remove. I tape events so I can see the advertisement about the dates, time, location and etc.
When I am in the library or other shops and see posters with events I want to attend, out comes my camera and I snap a handful of images for me to use as reminders. They are good, however, when a piece of paper is taped to the date, it’s really hard to ignore.
Last weekend was filled with peaches at the Rotary Peach Festival in Fort Collins. It is a collaborative event put on by the four Rotary Clubs in the city. The Peach Festival started with a Peach 5K run, a Peach breakfast, to be washed down by peach wine, peach beer, peach cider and grilled peaches. There was tasty peach ice cream, peach pie and peach cobbler. Oh my! Along with games, booths, families, obstacle courses for kids, yoga in the park, and it was all staffed by Rotarians and their families and friends.
Sunday was a car show in the neighborhood with really classy cars. The proceeds of over $25,000 was donated to Meals on Wheels to provide food for those who are unable to provide their own.
Add in a few bike rides, hikes, a couple of book group gatherings, movies, books on tape, walks in the ‘hood and that rounds out the past week. Amazing!
