Spent the morning driving out to Crozet (near Charlottesville) to go peach-picking. They had advertised on the orchard website that it was peach-ice-cream festival weekend. Turns out the festival was basically just a little booth with some homemade ice cream, but I'm not one to complain, as it was quite nice. We opted to go there instead of the Carytown Watermelon Festival that's going on in Richmond today, since it's essentially a billion degrees out, there's no shade, and it's just an entire mass of unruly sweaty people crowded way too close together (often with dogs and big strollers), plus expensive vendors, and a few people selling overpriced watermelon slices in paper bowls. It's just.....not my idea of a good time, really. I'll take a quiet mountain stroll to pick some fresh peaches from a tree over Carytown masses any day.
We're busy packing up all of our stuff to move to the house on Floyd. We donated 3 bags of stuff to Diversity Thrift.....................and then ended up buying a couch there. OOPS. So much for moving less stuff. Still, it's nice to have a real couch, and we'll retire the futon to guest-bed-only use now. We officially have the most hilarious color combinations for a living room:(Top left: new couch; top right: comfy armchair
Bottom left: rug; bottom right: coffeetable)
Now, I don't think the couch-rug-coffeetable colors are that dreadful together (I mean, they're a little loud, but they aren't bad) but the comfy armchair sort of throws a "Thanksgiving cornucopia" mood into the mix. But it is a very, very, very comfortable cornucopia.
