The hubby and I took off for a couple of days (left Thurs, came back today)... it was just a little get away to be somewhere different, do something different. We stayed in the same hotel I posted about a few days ago...the one with the robes. We shopped, ate at two new places, rested, read, shopped some more, ate some more....you get the idea!
One of the places we browsed was a huge antique store called The Queen of Hearts. Didn't buy a thing! But as we were leaving, I saw this little sign and thought, "That is exactly why we are here...we're making a life...doing something fun together!"
Hanging next to that sign was this one......
It made me think of all of you who are such avid gardeners.....especially Kim who mentioned recently that she has been perusing seed catalogs and wants to order everything to go in her garden! It also reminded me of Denise who talked about using seed packets in some of her paper art projects. So, you see, even when I am away, my blogging friends are on my mind and in my heart!! :-)
The funny thing about our shopping was that on Friday, we went to four different places. We bought nothing in the first three. We spent about $75 in the fourth place. You won't believe where that was.....BIG LOTS! ha! ha! We drove 2 hours to shop there when we have one less than 1/2 mi from us! But each one has different things..... so you never know what you might find!
Spent two hours in Ikea this afternoon. Ate lunch at their snack bar...two hot dogs, chips, drink...$2! Best deal in town!
One thing I was looking for was end tables. Been looking off and on for a year... finally bought some today! Yea! That was an accomplishment. I was beginning to lose hope, but as usual, God, in His time, provided. So, it was worth the wait.
We had a good time, but it is good to be home. Hope you all have had a lovely Sat. and that your Lord's Day is blessed "abundantly more than you could think or ask."
Farewell to April ’17
