Wet Hammock = Other Adventures

So it rained all day Saturday leaving my weekend plans to lie in the hammock in ruins. What to do instead. I got up Saturday morning and sent my husband and son off to boy scout camp for the weekend leaving me at home with a sleeping girl. What was I going to do? I didn't have plans for the weekend. I cleaned the house, started laundry and still my daughter slept.

Finally, nearly 11 a.m., the sleeping beauty awoke. I pushed a homemade blueberry muffin at her and told her to bring her garage sale money and off we went. First stop, FARR thrift store, my dear friend Becky's favorite stop on Saturday mornings. And who do you think we ran into at the thrift store? Becky along with her daughter and a friend. Yeah! What a happy coincidence. I was wondering what she was up to anyway.

After the thrift store we all jumped into one car and headed out in search of garage sales. We found one really nice one and got a few things and then stopped in my local yarn shop because we were in the neighborhood. I bought more sock yarn (you can never have too much). And then off to visit the community garden to see what industrious folks are growing.

And wow! talk about green thumbs.

We ended up going to a few more resale shops where we were inspired to go home and craft. One of the resale shops had the most fabulous altered book I have ever seen. If it hadn't been over $30, one of us would have bought it. It was lovely inspiration so we headed over to Goodwill to pick up some books to do our own. We cleaned them out of children's board books and headed back to my house.

The evening was filled with going through photos, gluing, paper, scissors, pens, etc. Lovely fun.
