This past week Bobby, Emily, and I took a day trip in effort to make the last days of summer memorable. And what we found was a rare gem in the Columbus/Dublin area called Hayden Falls. The boardwalk to the a small but beautiful falls was a surprise to find in the middle of the big city.
This past weekend I also did something I hardly ever do. I overslept. Yes, the woman who naturally wakes up at around six o'clock every day, overslept. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but I overslept on Farmers' Market morning. And despite the extra forty minutes of sleep, I was still tired.
Emily and I were a little late. Some of my tables didn't get moved before my vendors set up. And I was a little forgetful. However, market still went pretty well, and the produce my vendors brought photographed beautifully.
I also stopped at my local library and grabbed a few books to read, and lo and behold, I found a book called Bedtime Is Canceled. Now anyone who has ever been a child can remember the efforts made to extend bedtime as far off as possible. And anyone who has ever been a child can probably remember their parents telling them they were not going to stay up all night.
It never kept us from trying though. And the incredibly funny thing about this story is how bedtime mistakenly did get canceled and the ensuing craziness the cancellation brought forth. This book had me laughing with every page turn and is definitely a book I recommend for kids from about five to ten.
