Just to be able...and feel good enough to get out and really enjoy it once again!
I would make a terrible long term patient...and yet folks do it all the time. I know some of them...so this lovely warm, perfect weather day, was wonderful!
I have to tell you this..and please..oh please don't get all over me, shun me, or shame me, but I...really do have to force myself to go to church. I do! For the month that I was pretty much bedridden..and ill...I didn't go to church. My sweet husband went alone, and though he likes his "alone time" church isn't really one of those things he likes to do alone. So...this morning..my first day going back with him, I had a last minute personal delay.. :) and begged him to leave me so he wouldn't be late, (he hates being late to ANYTHING!) but alas and alack..he wouldn't. He stood firmly leaning against the dresser outside the bathroom door with his arms folded.
Sorry..but I wanted to laugh! I think he was onto me!
SO...I completed my potty break and followed him to the car...and off we went. I know, I know..but I never was a huge church goer. Yes, that's what I said. I just get so restless in church. I fidget and straighten my wallet..and have trouble concentrating. I'm as bad now as I ever was as a child. But..I think sweet husband is trying to make sure he gets into heaven and I surely don't want to be left alone..so..I go.
Truth be told...I would go to any church...or be content to just sit on the side of a beautiful meadow and praise the glory and wonder of "it all!"
Ok...so that was today!
Now, yesterday...yippee! Garage sales all over the place..but..we started out late..and I didn't find a thing..then..suddenly...last minute...I got lucky!!
Every year I add to my Halloween and Fall collection of goodies...and these two little things caught my eye...(I need to have a garage sale..not GO to one! ARGGG..)
This little black bucket...just right for floating pumpkin candles in..or filled with real baby pumpkins and fall leaves? I put apples in it for the picture..
In the picture it is on my desk...but...it will have a special place when decorating time comes. I loved it...and for 50 cents...what the heck. Right? Yes..I probably have something similar already...but...NO..wait..it's a black witches cauldon ..I'm fine. No duplicate!
Another 50 cents bought me this adorable little Halloween ..something. Not sure what it was..so I stuck a candle in it. A larger one will be in it when I use it. You get the idea though... :)
Another garage sale yield these brand new shopping list tablets...still in their cellophane wrappers for 25 cents. Actually she tried to just GIVE them to me...she had a boxfull..and I think she was hot and tired. I gave her the quarter in my hand...but I should have given her more. They even have the magnet on the back. Not Fall but cute and useful!
Then we were off to a hotcake breakfast. My favorite topping on our Saturday adventures. Life is good! :)
