Happy September!

Happy September, friends! I hope your Labor Day weekend was a fun one. My husband, the kids and I went to a local festival in my hometown. We attended the Liberty Fest in Harrisburg, Illinois, hosted by Little Chapel Church. Both my brother and mother go to this church.

Liberty Fest is an annual festival and everything is free… well, everything except for the helicopter rides, but the money paid to ride the helicopter goes to a charity for kids. Personally, I’m not much for heights, so I chose not to ride in the helicopter. My husband does his best to try and get me in one, but I tell him God planted my feet on the ground and that’s where I intend for them to stay. Besides, there was much more fun to be had other than riding in the helicopter.

Everyone enjoyed the good food (funnel cakes, hamburgers, barbecue, homemade donuts and much more). In addition chowing down on some of the delicious food, we walked around the grounds and admired the old cars, the kids enjoyed a horse and buggy ride, and the list could go on and on. To make a long story short, I’ll just say we all had a great time, and I needed the day off.

Now that the fun has ended, I’m re-energized and ready to write again! As a matter of fact, tonight I will respond to two writing gigs, write two articles, and I hope after all of that is completed, I’ll have time left to send off a query letter or two. Boy, do I have a long night ahead of me! Depending on how my research fares, the two articles shouldn’t take no more than an hour or an hour and a half, and the gigs mainly require me to send information and a few writing samples, which I have already created. I just need to tweak the information a little to fit the writing jobs I’m responding to. Hmm… it appears as if I just may have time to send the query letters after all.

I guess I’d better go. If I keep blogging, I won’t get anything done. Until next time, enjoy the pictures of Liberty Fest.
