Well, I've officially decided that I am going to Kansas. I will not be exhibiting at Draft Horse Classic this year. I will have work in the show, but I will not have a booth and I will not be there. In a way this breaks my heart, I love that show and the people there, and I spend an entire year looking forward to the Saturday night hoe-down, but I think in the long run it's going to be a lot more beneficial for me to spend time with fellow engravers, and besides, they have a hoe-down too! :-)
I'm going to miss my DHC peeps though.
I don't know if this Kansas thing is something I'll do more than once. I just hope the dates don't always conflict so that I don't have to make that difficult decision.
In other news, I am all finished making jam and canning peaches for the summer. Whew! The peaches and nectarines will soon be gone. Some friends came this morning and took a few bags of them home for canning and baking. I had to make sure they left me a few! But really, it's all ripe and needs to be used right away.
