All homework done and was even able to work a day or two ahead in a couple of my classes. It also helped that a few of my professors moved the due date on a few of the assignments. The sorority things were quick and simple. Career fair was fun for being my first, and I think I may have found a company that I would really like to have an internship.
Now let's get to the fun. This weekend was one of Ada's biggest events in the town and that is Harvest and Herb Festival. It is basically a little street fair market that some locals will come and sell things they made. It could be from honey to cute little wood figures. A parade even goes through of local groups and the high school band. There was one downside that happened during the festival. Rain. It rained during the whole parade and during most of the festival time. There was also two other small hiccups. A train stopped the parade and festival and a wide load drove through. I was standing near one of the local vendor's stand when the wide load came through and he yelled, "I expect candy to be thrown from them. They stopped our festival and parade!" Yep, he was funny and I bought something from him.

Towards the end of the festival time, the sun came out, umbrellas were put away and smiles were on everyone's faces.
The next day was not as busy but still busy. I did some more homework that only took a few minutes. Afterwards I went out to eat then went a little antiquing, which was so much fun because I saw things that I have never seen before and things that I have only seen in textbooks. I was not able to take photos of the stores. Maybe if I go again I will and show you all the cool things. My boyfriend found two signs that he wanted and bought them. Here are the two signs:
|This sign had a weird smell to it.|

It was a crazy week and weekend but I am happy it was. The rain clouds did not stop me from having a great weekend. I cannot not wait for this week.
