Hello dear Reader. On Saturday I hit the Church of St. Augustine's yard sale. For once I tried to go when it opened and I think I will do it again. I didn't expect to find much and therefore didn't have much cash. Happily one of the reference librarians was helping at the sale and hid my goods, while I dashed out to a ATM. I found such good treasures, well, to me they are. One of them being another Beatrix Potter figurine. Shari and I are starting to collect them after being inspired by Susan Branch and also for their cuteness. I'm not familiar with Appley Dappley, but that's who I spied on a table of tchotchkes. Mr. Bubbe, was front and center examining everything.
This just like new rug was $10! I overheard that after 12 pm, everything was 1/2 priced. So I went back for this one and it was $5! It looks and feels like silk, but it's Viscose.
If you have read my previous post dear Reader, you know I'm trying to play catch up. This past week in Rhode Island we had a two day spell of hot summer weather. Friday, was in the high 80's and I had the day off. One of my co-workers at the library recommended taking a walk at Rome Point. She had been on a bird walk there and had seen Bald Eagles. I set out with a bottle of water and sunscreen. Bug spray would of been a good addition as well. It was beautiful and some of the scenery was looked like from the pages of One Morning in Maine.
My only encounter on my walk was with a deer and a few mosquitos.
I am shocked to see, that it's almost been a month since my last post, dear Reader. I do a lot more
updating on my Instagram site. It's so easy to use my iPhone, snap a picture and post it then and there. But at any rate, here's some of the happenings of late:
Mother's Day weekend got off to a sweet start, when I received this box of chocolates on Friday night.
I spent a glorious time on Saturday, enjoying British decoration magazines and noshing on a warm apple tart, delicious!
I also visited a new home SUPER store, At Home. It's like HomeGoods on steroids. Everything looks like it was just spat out of the factory in China. Not much in the way of charm. All I came away with was a bunch of lilacs, that I picked in their parking lot. They smelled heavenly.
On Mother's day, I was on my own. The kids were working a full shift selling last minute chocolate gifts for M-day procrastinators. Marc spent the day with his Mom, who is housebound.
I made dinner and we all ate together, which was a nice change. I spent the day putting away Easter
decorations and puttering. It was relaxing and very calorie laden!
