It depends how you look at it…the day after we arrived.
October 31, 2014 Indiana
The big discussion of the morning was where are we going? Who is doing what when?
Chance, Ernie, Ronnie and I are staying home. Chance and I do not want to get back in that car. Janice (Far Guy’s sister) is off to get her hair and nails done. Far Guy, Andy, Jen, Noah and Adam head out for the Louisville Slugger Factory, a Bourbon Distillery called Evan Williams and Churchill Downs.
It is raining and the weather has turned cold. I straightened up the kitchen and had a nap, later Chance and I take a rainy walk.
The roses are covered with raindrops.
We checked out the Mums…looking much better with their black pots covered up!
Canada Geese on the lake. Many many Canada geese.
Oh ya those Mums will be decorations outside the door at the reception tomorrow.
We helped load the cars with other Wedding Reception and Wedding “stuff.”
It kept raining and getting colder.
Later that day we got all dressed up and headed for the Wedding Rehearsal and Dinner. We got to meet the groom’s folks from Delaware. The dinner menu was homemade rolls, Adam ate four or five, Haricot Vert ( fancy name for green beans with garlic and almonds), chicken, potatoes out of a box and gravy with apple crisp for dessert. You could have wine…duh since we were at a winery…I had a soda.
Soon after we finished our meal it began to snow. Adam, Noah and I went out to watch it snow! Many people from Delaware didn’t even bring a coat. It rarely snows in Southern Indiana at Christmas and here it is Oct 31 and snowing…the bride was so upset…the wedding will take place outdoors the next day. It is what we have travelled so far to see…Far Guy’s only niece on his side of the family…and we are her only Uncle and Aunt.
I am so glad I packed my snowboots.
On a side note there was no candy left out for Trick or Treaters and the only costumes I saw were a few devil horns that the bridesmaids wore, it was perfect for one of those maids. I expected to see groups of kids out and about…nothing doing…maybe it was the weather. I missed seeing all our Trick or Treaters…this was the first year I have missed taking their photos.
