LESS YOU THINK I AM NO LONG BLOGGING





Some of you might be wondering why I haven't posted quite as much lately!  I try not to talk about how busy I am for fear you make think I am crazy!  This weekend is a good example! 


 On Saturday the Historic District Merchants put on the "Let The Good Times Sock Hop" in Bancroft Park and 800-1000 people attended. I am the director for this group here in our Historic 3 block District.  For this I baked 2 lemon meringue pies, a chocolate cake (my wonderful one) and my peppermint brownies. I was in charge of making the trophies and organizing the prizes for the event.  I made root beer floats at the event and took photos.  You can view the event at:  
 http://oldcoloradocityshopping.blogspot.com/  There won't be any photos of me there - I was taking the pictures.


Our board spent weeks working with our administrator/event planner working together getting ready for this event.  After Saturday was over - the Good Times Car Show (collectible cars) came Sunday and they closed the streets here for that event with hundreds of cars on display.  Today, the USA Pro Cycling came through with the streets closed again.  The bikers rode at about 60 miles per hour  spaced a few minutes apart - there were helicopters, hundreds of vehicles before and after them with mounted cameras - I have never seen a bike go so fast in my life!  It was unbelieveable.  Did I mention that I still have my bike from the 1970's - a three speed in perfect condition.  It is perfect because I never ride it!


Anyway, I am hoping now my life will slow down!   I feel like I have been going 60 miles per hour myself!   Whew......

Bernideen - You sound like me this summer - actually you sound like me for the past two years! Have scaled back to one main thing - not counting the historical group I work with - but that event isn't til May. I am completely wrung out - and school starts this week (setting up) and next with the kids. I am committed to blogging - just for ME! Gotta get my inspiration and have a place to retreat to just for the relax. Glad you had such an awesome time - so much work - but you're making history and blessing your community!
Joy!

I am sure you've been going 75 mph! It will be nice when fall arrives, won't it? The delphinium is so gorgeous!! Some of mine have died off and I think it is time to have some new ones next spring. ♥♫

Good grief woman! Take a deep breath, one of your peppermint brownies, and stare deeply into the hollyhocks while relaxing every muscle! Glad you survived and am glad you had what I expect was a successful weekend!
Cheers,

Hi Bernideen,
that looks like a great party and a lot of fun. And - a lot of work. What a luck that people like you make such an effort to help and work for others. But don't forget to have fun in your own life.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Bernideen,

Hats off to you! I think I would be in panic mode if I had to coordinate an event this big. Your baked goods sound delicious, especially the peppermint brownies. I bet everyone had a wonderful time.

Life can often take over and leave no time for blogging. I like the fact your bike is so good because you do not use it!!

Bernideen, it sounds like you have been surrounded by as many "deadlines" as I have this summer, and it sure is nice to see things reach a slower, gentler pace, isn't it!
