A small piece of advice...

When you're invited to come help build a rock wall...

WEAR GLOVES.

I was a super genius and used my bare hands this afternoon. And now my fingers hurt like none other. Typing is even a painful activity. But, on the plus side, the wall was looking amazing when I left...

Something else that's awesome? I get to be on our FFA chapter's county fair Livestock Judging team this weekend! It looks like it's going to be my last time participating in the contest, which is kind of sad, but I'm looking forward to it. I've never competed at the county level before, so this'll be interesting, but it's going to be fun. And then I can spend time at our small county fair afterward! Yea! Let's just hope it's a cool day, because hot weather, navy blue corduroy coats, and black pants aren't a fun combination. Trust me.

I was totally there today! My friend was showing her swine.

It was so nice because we went early in the day and didn't have to deal with any warm weather really.

AND! We totally made up the $6 we paid to get in with super-sweet scores of free stuff from the booths! OH YES!! I love Polk County!

I'll be sure to wear gloves if I ever do that kind of thing. Just visited that Harry Potter innuendo site... HILARIOUS!

@ Elisa - Polk County is amazing! That fair is pretty much the greatest. Okay, maybe not the greatest ever, but it's still pretty fabulous... :)

@ Piper - hahahaha... thanks...

@ Jeremy - I highly recommend the gloves... And that Harry Potter innuendo site is hilarious. :)
