Clocktown Arts & Crafts Fair

 

My husband and I spent a beautiful day in Thomaston at the Clocktown Arts & Craft fair with his grandfather.

Ken Killer of AKA had been making ornaments for twenty two years, they hand scroll ornaments made of recycled Christmas trees found right here in Ct. We showed off some projects in the works along with finished pieces.  Cuddle-fish, cronuts, and cozy jars were my focus. As the holidays come closer I’ll also be showing some ornaments.
The fair was on the Thomaston Green under the constant chiming of the clock tower.  The weather was brisk but comfortable, the people were delightful and took their time at the table talking and getting to know us.

The highlight of our day was when an eight year old ran up to our table and said “would you like a cup of lemonade it’s only twenty five cents and I deliver!”  Obviously we had to buy a few cups! 

CT fishin’

Some of our favorite spots to fish and hike in CT are surprisingly close to the major cities we live and work in.  I’ve crossed a pet store parking lot to find the sweetest honey hole full of trout.  In the middle of a huge industrial park there’s a beautiful man made pond that’s full sun every time of the day.

 

We encourage you to walk around your neighborhood or near your work, keep an eye out for some fishin’ spots!

Snow Day Crochet (and other activities that don’t rhyme as well)

We’ve had a few snow days recently, I took the time to finish up a few projects around the attic. 

 

Two blankets combining the moss stitch and half double.  The cats have a really hard time watching me crochet, they usually end up on top of whatever I’m working on.

 

 

We took a walk down to the local convenience store for some supplies, wandered about Fulton Park and held hands a lot.

 

 

Repotted some plants I rescued from the sale section at Lowe’s, hung a string to help keep my vine plant off the floor, it seems happier with the support.

Spent every minute with these guys.

Rainy Day Hike

 

Connecticut has been a little cloudy lately, the manimal was feeling cooped up inside so we bundled and went on a quick but moderately strenuous hike.

Probably safer on a dryer day, we hiked to the waterfall in about ten minutes and came back down.  It was the perfect break from the indoors we needed.
This is Roaring Brook falls in Cheshire CT.  Follow roaring brook road until you come to the second left turn, we spent a lot of time trying to get gps to locate this one!
