The Elmira Maple Syrup Festival.
Elmira is my place of residence. Today is our big town festival. We expect thousands of tourists over the course of the day. The festival - and the minor irritation - began at 7 am.
I was up until 2am detangling and winding a ball of yarn to be used this morning. I figured I would sleep until 10, and then get knitting!
It was not to be.
Normally, our little town is quiet, quiet, quiet. I can sleep all day if I want to! There is no traffic noise, the occasional barking dog, no sirens . . . the worst you'll hear is the clip-clop of horses drawing buggies through town. Today the usual quiet is punctuated by the frequent . . no, constant . . slamming of car doors.
I'm a very light sleeper.
There are cars parked everywhere.
I'm UP! I'm UP! I get it!!
Mr. Wonderful and I will be heading out this afternoon to check out the festival. This is our first year in town, and we've never been before. And so begins our vacation.
