I am hoping to reconnect with Wanderlust Hearts beginning this week. I still have a book review to write, new recipes to share, and some upcoming favors to show you. Greg also had a great idea to go along with the favor: I'm going to create new decorated goodies each week and post how to do it with pictures of the final results.
This past week ventured out a bit and visited the Topsfield Fair in Topsfield, Massachusetts. I have gone to the fair every year since I was a toddler. I love walking through the exhibits - fruits and vegetables, flora and fauna, arts and crafts, and the trade center. I love all of the foods, although, as the years go on ,most of the food is carnival junk foodthat I do not eat. Some of the highlights in the food department for myself are German Fries, Veggie Tempura, and Apple Crisp. Naturally, there is a downside to the fair. Animals are kept in confined places, lots of crowds, and the worst offense of all; Elephant rides provided by a traveling Zoo. For more information about why it's bad for Elephants to be in traveling zoos visit http://www.helpelephants.com/. Greg and I avoid this area when we visit the fair but we also speak about how it affects us. Last year we wrote a letter to the Topsfield Fair asking them to not renew the contract of the zoo. We included pictures of how the elephant wasn't being properly taken care of and everything. Needless to say we never heard back.
At the end of the day I feel you can stand up for what you believe in while enjoying yourself.
