Claire and Miranda Go To The Garden Festival

It was a really hot day on The Hill but a really fun day as well.

We got some kettle corn and…

watched the May Pole Dancers.  They have a wonderful routine that was so much fun.  The Roomie made us leave when one of them dressed like a clown came out.  Spiders and Clowns are her weakness, lol.

The Roomie was having issues with the heat and her RA so she had to go sit in the car with the AC on for a while.  We were looking at all the beautiful houses on the street.

We had to go water some plants and took some time to enjoy the sunset in the back field.  BEAUTIFUL with a little taste of early Summer.

Winter Storm Ryan

Winter Storm Ryan blew through town.  What a mess.  The snow was heavy and we didn’t get a snow day so The Roomie was Bitterpants Roomie this morning, lol.

Normie was loving the cold.  He is super weird like that!  I think because everyone calls him Stormy Normie he loves weather and weather storms, lol.

Tomorrow a Polar Vortex is supposed to stop by for a quick visit.  March is shaping up to be a super snowy month, fer sure!

It’s Art

I was a busy Gnome yesterday.  First we hit the Art Museum.

Some of my distant cousins.  The Belschnikel and Norwegian Santa.

My favorite was the Rotunda.  So many wonderful local artist showing their talents.

Afterward we hit up the Grocery Store for some tasty vittles before the Eagles Game.  The Birds beat the Bears 16 – 15.  It was a heartbreak lost in the final moments for the Bears but now the Eagles move on to the Saints next weekend.  Fly Eagles Fly!

Hot Hot Hot Festival

We went with the Roomie to the Chestnut Hill Fall Festival.  It felt more like Summer Festival than Fall.  The temperatures were a sweltering 90+ which made the Roomie melt.

It was a lot of fun even with the heat.  We just need Fall to kick in with it’s wonderfully cool temperatures.

I might not have a cool name like Jack Skellington but I got my pumpkinishous on!  Elliott Pumpkinton is a fine name.  Maybe I will be come famous because of this blog.  I told this to the Roomie and she laughed…like a lot.  I’m too fabulous not to be famous…just saying.

 

Garden Festival Time!

The CH Garden Festival was in full swing yesterday even though it rained.  It was still a good day!

The Roomies bought some new Fairy Houses for the multitudes that have gathered at our house.  J is all like “the more the merrier” but that’s because she doesn’t have to share a bathroom with the merrier.  I’m just grumpy today.

Ingrid had a blast.  This was her first Garden Festival.  She enjoyed the May pole Dancers the most.  She said it really reminded her of visiting Teddy in Germany in the Spring 🙂

The crowds eventually showed up and the weather cleared up and we went on to your next activity.  It was a good day 🙂
