NAIA Pow Wow 2008–Tennessee

October 21, 2008
The Pow Wow that we went to on Saturday was so much fun. It was a fairly big one with lots of dancing and drumming. I had an Indian Taco served on fry bread–the best! We always go to the same booth because they serve it piled high with meat and veggies. The arts and crafts booths seemed to be a little bit bigger than last year. Lots of venders with beautiful jewelry and other craft ware. I would have loved to stayed and seen the dancing at night by my family was pooped so we called it a day around 4p.m.

My flickr page has many more photos plus you can see the pendant I bought, too.



Weekend Update for 10-18 thru 10-19

October 20, 2008

Saturday morning found my children hanging from an Oak branch.  Does this happen around your house?  My husband was tired of having this limb scrap the top of his big honking truck so he decided to cut it off.  Actually, he thought he could YANK it down and when that didn’t work he called in for back up.  The offspring.  Now, after dangling from the limb for awhile and realizing that this wasn’t the way, a saw was finally called for and the job was completed.

Afterward we drove an hour North and attended the NAIA Pow Wow.  It was loads of fun.  I love the Drumming and the dancing.  I got my fill this year as we went on a Saturday.  If you go on the last day then you usually miss out on all that.  I took tons of photo that I need to upload and share.  Will try and get that done on Tuesday.   

Sunday was a bit more low key.  After breaking up a dog fight (our Beagle is a little too aggressive for his small stature and gets himself into trouble from time to time), I needed a break.  I went to the one place that I can find total serenity, Old Stone Fort.  I hung out by myself for a couple of hours and came home happy and refreshed.  

Onward Ho!  Monday.  Hope you all have a great week!
