Narrowing Down Resources
I don’t think my body was ready for Monday after a busy weekend and my eyes were drooping writing before I went to bed but I still managed to get it done. My resource Monday involved listing out my progress from the beginning of the year and writing down my current income streams. Then, I…
Our weekend event went well as my handmade miniatures and my husband’s 3D designs flew off of our new shelves. We stood on our feet and behind our table with other crafters and artists with hopeful smiles at the start of a new location. At the start of the year my husband and I made…
The weekend is here and I’m thinking about the fluffy pancake video I watched last night from a famous bakery in Japan. How many whisks of the wrist does it take to get the perfect jiggle? According to chefs all over the world, about 1,000 by hand. I don’t know about you but I think…

Guess what day it is in Minnesota! It’s the grand opening of the Minnesota State Fair! Everyone has been waiting to fill their bellies and walk around to see what’s new this year. You’ll see some of us sitting the audience during the live news broadcasts or hear us participating in crazy news station contests. Music will be playing every corner and the smell of everything on a stick will permeate the air.
I’ve been having a serious debate about the days before my husband and I plan to walk through the gates. Should I fast or cut down on my normal intake of calories to save room for the big day? This is actually a topic of conversation before we attend the fair up here.
A few days after the fair might mean a grease detox. My counter might be lined with a few bottles of Kombucha and empty yogurt cups to restore my gut health.
Another question we ask up north is whether or to attend a second annual event, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. This festival goes until the end of September instead of 2 weeks like the fair. It’s a step back in time and you’ll see many people dressed up in costumes that require corsets and no zippers. Knights will joust and performances from days long past will reappear. One of my favorite spots is visiting the outdoor blacksmith area where iron and glass twist together.
The food follows the theme and the biggest thing to get is the huge turkey leg and soup in bread bowls. Small shops filled with handmade creations and fairy like creatures fill the shelves. This is one place where you can find fellowship with artists of all things ancient.
Personally, I don’t know if I’m ready for two events but I might attend at the end for the Octoberfest like celebration. I can’t resist handmade. Between those dates my husband and I will be taking our own handmade items to Jacklope Arts weekend event on September 10th and 11th at Surly Brewing Co in Minneapolis. Then, the following weekend on September 17th is our first Kimchi Festival in Mounds View. Like I mentioned before my fingers are getting a workout these next few months.
I might need a few weeks to recover after all the excitement. Don’t worry, I always post daily events here. I’ll also post any new prompts from attending different events. Speaking of prompts, it’s time for a foodie prompt. Write about a dinner, or a favorite food for 5-10 minutes. You can even write about a chef preparing a meal. Remember to use your senses.
My posts are Monday through Friday.
