Rainy Saturday Change of Plans

Today’s activity plans were to attend the Color Cruise and Island Festival here in our hometown of Grand Ledge, MI.  There are lots of fun activities that take place on our historic island including displays and demonstrations from historic times and a riverboat to take passengers up and down the scenic Grand River.  This is a great time of year to show off our famous ledges and tree lined river with all the beautiful fall colors.  Looks like Mother Nature has other plans for today.   Earlier in the week the forecast was for a beautiful sunny fall day.  What we got instead was a forecast of day long drizzle, rain, and probable storms.  Not a great day for outdoor activities.

We had planned on participating in the classic car show that is also a part of this event.  We own a 1973 Olds Delta 88 Royale that has been in the family since it was new.  This was the last hurrah car show for us this year.  Time to tuck the classic away for the winter. With today’s rainy forecast we decided not to take the car out of the garage. We are not as bad as most but classic car owners hate to take their cars out in the rain. It takes time to get a car all shined up and perfect for a show and the rain makes that impossible.   

Instead I have numerous other things I can be doing.  I could prepare some future blog posts, finish up my clean and organize my office project, and then there is the ever popular clean the house and do laundry.  Since we have a craft show next week I also need to spend LOTS of quality time with my crochet hook making Scrubbies and other items I will be selling.  Must be time to get to work...enjoy your Saturday!

Until next time...
