Summer Ball Games

Summer Ball Games

Has everyone been enjoying this cooler weather this week?  My husband and I went to a ball game on Wednesday night, and it was very pleasant weather with just a slight breeze.  I need to remember to wear long pants and bring a jacket now that the nights are getting cooler.  We recently purchased scooters since we both have mobility issues.  These have the advantage of folding in half for storage.  We had the opportunity to give them a real try and see what we do and don’t like.  My legs are shorter than Michaels, so I have little trouble putting my feet on the footrest or maneuvering the scooter.  

The scooters are coming with us to Darlington for the NASCAR race on Labor Day weekend.  Our seats for the race are on the start/finish line.  Labor Day is coming up fast and I am excited.  There is still so much to do before we go that weekend.  The plan is to get to the parking lot early and tailgate. 

The following Wednesday after the race, we will be setting up our canopy for the Sunflower Festival Weekend including the VIP night on Friday and the festival on Saturday and Sunday.  Especially For Ewe is in booth number 18.  Plan to get your tickets early.  This is not an event to forget.  There are over 100 craft vendors and several food vendors as well as lots and lots of sunflowers, the reason we are all there.  Plan to enjoy lots of shopping, plenty of food as well as opportunities to take lots of pictures. 

If you don’t have your tickets yet, here is the link to purchase them.  The festival is the weekend of September 9-11 and also the following weekend, September 17-18.  Don’t forget the goat yoga during the week.  Yes, I said goat yoga.

Especially For Ewe has a Labor Day Sale going on until the 12th of September.  Check out the dresses and rompers that are 20% off.  Go to and check out the Labor Day Sale tab.  You just can’t beat the deals.
