We made it to the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Saturday was a gorgeous day. The weather was perfect, in the 70's with a cool breeze. We have not had much rain so the grounds were very dry and the dust was high. The Maryland and Pennsylvania Renaissance fairs are different. Their lay out and the entertainment are unique to each state. I would say that the Maryland has more kid friendly things to do. Also you will see more families dressed in period costumes there. There are more shops and it looks more like a village. Pennsylvania's is more like a traveling town with more stages. We always enjoy ourselves at the Maryland one. Oh.. it's the Shopping for me, Love their wares. This year I was into the Honey Pot. Shopped at a Honey shop, with local and exotic honey. Bought some Killer Bee honey made from Brazilian Killer bees. Good for the body and very tasty to me. I also purchased some Orange honey which is from a local Bee farm. They had so many to try, all with different taste. Now I will be creating recipes with honey used as a sweetener. The Maryland Renaissance Festival is located in Crownsville, Maryland, if one has a desire to attend you will surely enjoy it. They are open through October on the weekends.
Sunday at church we were able to see Critter and his family. Haven't seen them since our Canadian(NSL) trip. Our summer schedules were crazy, going here and there and having Summer fun. Made plans for next weekend with the kids, we will be going to the aquarium.
Our Minister was back from summer break, the sermon was on the goal of our church. Only one goal, to share the gospel of Christ to all people. We have many ways to achieve that. This has been the Goal since the Resurrection of Christ. Given by Christ Jesus himself to go into Jerusalem, Judah and into the four corners of the earth proclaiming the gospel and the fulfillment of scriptures. Teaching them the truth and the way to salvation. They started in their own town and those that heard carried it out to the world. If you can not or haven't been to a church in a while, there is an online live stream site. It is easy to get to , check it out Here. One can listen to short sermon clips to a thirty minute one. On Sunday there are 3 services broadcast 9am, 10:45am and 12:30pm EST. All these are live with music, like being there only in your own home. You will be able to chat with someone live if you have questions.
After we arrived home hubby and I went to the Movies. Saw The American. Not sure what to think of it. Will have to let it sink in before I write the review. Not your normal flick and truly an adult over 21 one.
Today I will be working on a room in the house. I am thinking of renaming it from the dungeon to something else, still pondering on that name. Will probably have a family pow wow to decide on it.
How was your weekend, anything special or just the ordinary stuff? What ever it was clue me in.
