Snook Fest

This past Saturday was our hometown festival in lovely Downtown Snook. Yes, there IS a Downtown Snook! I was in charge of setting up the craft and food vendors this year and I had all 24 craft vendor spots spoken for. I think we had about 4 of them as no-shows, but it was still a nice sized show. I had a booth with my AdvoCare products and Popcorn Shirts from The Magic Scarf Company.

It was a little breezy for the vendors, but the temps were great for festival-goers. I think it was a good idea to move it away from June. Of course, this year was really crazy with the weather and it was actually cold in the morning. Jackets? In May? Whoda thunk it?! 

There was the usual BBQ cookoff, parade, children's barnyard, craft vendors, kids area and antique tractors. This year, we added a car show as well. For our first year, we had a good number of entries. The barnyard area also included the reptiles again this year. It was peculiar to see a large land tortoise being "walked" around the festival grounds most of the day. That thing could really get around pretty quick, too. Lots of people stopped to take pictures of it (or with it). I know we asked that "pets" not be brought to the festival, but I think we can make an exception in this case.

At noon, several geocachers came by my booth for the WWFM X which we hosted as the Brazos Valley Geocachers. That is the World Wide Flash Mob. We met up, signed the log, took a picture and passed out door prizes. I got some of them and some of them were donated by GxProxy and Travel Fleas.  During the festival, we also held Flea Fest, a letterboxing event listed on AtlasQuest.  I explained "Fleas" in a previous post.

Things I Have Learned About OneNote

I have spent a couple of years looking for that planner peace and have not been able to stick with any certain planner for more than a couple of months. Either the planner is too bulky to carry around or it's too small to fit all the info (and my ever-growing sticker collection) or it doesn't allow me to easily add extra pages, etc. So, I have been working in Microsoft OneNote to create a dynamic Digital Bullet Journal and I have learned several things along the way.  #digibujo  
I will share some things with you that I have figured out with trial and error that might save you some hassle. This info applies to OneNote in general, so even if you don't plan or journal, stick with me.
First and foremost, OneNote has several versions.  Each will look different and have various functions.  The most robust and feature-rich is the OneNote 2016 program for the desktop. Then there's the OneNote "app" for Windows 10. It does not have all the functions of the 2016 progr…

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…
