Gonna be a busy weekend! I can't believe I am saying this but I'm going to a craft fair tomorrow. I REALLY don't like crafts and especially don't like craft fairs. I went to two art gallery shows recently - LOVED them both! But crafts?...Not so much. might call me an art snob. And I'm okay with that!

So why a craft show? favorite Farmer's Market vendor is going to be at the fair with her jams and jellies! Everyone on my Christmas list - stop reading NOW...Christmas Gift Spoiler Alert. All my gift peeps are going to get a jar of jam! Her jams are ROCKIN!! Like: Christmas Butter, Pumpkin Pecan Butter, Brandied Marmalade, Carrot Cake Preserves, Raspberry Jalapeno, Habanero Gold, and my personal favorite...Sweet Warning - with sweet red bell, serrano, and habanero peppers.

College Men's and Women's Basketball games in the afternoon! Go Chargers!

Tomorrow night we are off to enjoy Christmas at the Orpheum. The Briar Cliff University Choir, Chamber Choir, and Siouxland Choral Artists plus the symphony. It will be glorious! It is the signature event of the university's choral program.

Plus I need to do a bit of cleaning and preparing for Thanksgiving! (Okay maybe it's more than just a LITTLE necessary cleaning...) Oh! AND I have an order for some Christmas cards for daughter Amy and her friend Jennie. I told you...BUSY weekend!
