AWWW MONDAY - WEEKEND SEPTEMBER 18

WEEKEND 

Saturday was a beautiful day, the sun was shining for once and the world looked far better.  I didn't really know what to do with my day, but then in the afternoon I went to a little village not far away where a pumpkin festival took place. 

I was a bit reluctant, I thought maybe it will be the same flop as the Orchad festival in Waterloo, with a lot of publicity and nothing to see or do. 

I gave it a try and was not disappointed at all ! For the first time since 2 years of Covid prison I felt free and just like before this time ! Normal ! Lots of people and children were there, games for the children and adults tents with benches and beer, pumpkin soup, pumpkin juice and a lot of things to see. 

Nobody wore a mask, everybody laughed, kids jumped around and had fun  ! And I too ! I took a lot of pictures which I will show for the meme "Our World" ! Finally new photos and not digging in the past to look for some !

 

It was nothing special, before Corona, maybe I wouldn't even go there, but now it seems to me that people are hungry to get together and have fun without restrictions ! 

On my way back I stopped at the "Grange des champs" (Field Barn) where Mr. G. lives to say hello and show him my pictures. He hadn't expected my visit and was glad to see me. The retirement home is only 3 km from my home and when I am near there  I just pop in after my shopping. 

Sunday morning the sun was still present and  I thought I will go to another fest where people could sell all their junk, decorations or clothes or whatsoever and at the same time there were food stands and usually a cheerful athmosphere.

When I finally found the place because there were building a tunnel and Miss GPS had to direct me around, there was nothing. No people no cars and empty stands ! And then I saw the poster, the fest had been on Saturday and not on Sunday and what I saw were the left overs ! 

I didn't want to return home yet and continued without knowing where I was ! 

Is saw a house with a face smiling at me and my poor car didn't like the cobbled "streets". My car is already very small it is a  Toyota Aygo, and the streets shrank more and more and suddenly I was in the middle of a wood

I saw beautiful horses who didn't care that I was there and continued through the woods. No houses, no barns nothing. Not even a human. I liked driving on these narrow cobbled streets which seemed to date back to Roman times. I opened the windows and smelled the air of the wood. 

As I didn't know where I was, I finally pushed the button "Home" and followed the orders of Miss GPS.

Suddenly I had returned to civilisation and before I returned home I bought some fruits and something to eat for tonight.

This weekend wasn't something special, I didn't climb on the Mount Everest, but I had two days out in sunshine and freedom and no MASKS !!

And when I came home the laundry was done and ready to bring to Mr. G. That nobody tells me about "The good old times " !!

It may not have been a special weekend but it sounds like you really enjoyed yourself and the freedom to be pre covid while out and about.

It used to be Madame GPS. Now it is Miss GPS. Maybe Madame GPS divorced her husband.

What percentage now of your population have now been double vaccinated?

Awww on the giraffe and the kitty. Adorable.

I'm glad you had a great weekend with wonderful weather and no masks. It does feel so free. We're back in masks here. I don't know why, but we are.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Gattina. ♥

Sunny days usually give us much optimism. Pumpkins are the most beloved fall food. The combination of good weather and an attractive fruit-vegetable such as the pumpkin, makes our day a good one. Besides, meeting other people despite Covid is fun and pleasure.
