A Day in the Life

It should come as no surprise, if you've been here very long at all, that I am a homebody.  When the kids were little, I called Saturday "Stay Home Day".  I still call it that in my head.  When you have little kids and a full time job and live 30 miles from "town" and have a huge porch to enjoy, why would you want to leave?  So I usually don't.

Today, though, I was lured out of the house to the nearby flea market that happens once a month. There are only a few of them that are neither too cold nor too hot.  March, maybe April, maybe October and November. I wanted to get away from the computer, and it was a BEAUTIFUL day!

My girlie and I enjoyed a little music on the way.  She entertained me with a rendition of "Call Me Maybe".

There was a pretty good crowd.  We were late getting there and it was starting to get hot.  In March.  90 degrees. Too hot for me usually, but I needed the sunshine!

There was some good stuff, like these old sewing machines.

 And some other stuff, like these goats.

We got this cornflower blue fountain for the yard.  If the red one hadn't been sold already, I would have wanted that one. It had a bird on it. :::heart:::

I don't think the roasted corn people were kidding about this:

While the boys were still shopping the chicken/turkey/guinea area, girlie and I ran off to town for a frosty, tasty treat.

A good time was had by all.  Sometimes not staying home on Saturday is really good, too.

May the good Lord send sunshine for your face, frosty treats when it's hot, and loved ones to share your day.

  1. That sounds lovely, Lori! I would've wanted the red fountain with the birdie too.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! I wish I'd gotten a photo of the little red cut out bird. I was sweet! But I'll like the blue one, too, once we get it installed. I hate gardening type activities, but I'm actually kind of excited about this one. :)

  2. Great photos Lori, and it looks like a great market. Post photos of the fountain in your garden.

    1. Thanks, Kim! You bet I will. I'm going to have to sweat to get it there. I'll for sure takes photos of the result. :)

  3. Ahhh...your pics look great! What a beautiful day outside and with your daughter:) I love that sign by the roasted corn-love their sense of humor.

    Since it's pretty much been in the 20s here for days seeing your pictures makes me just long for nicer weather.


    1. I don't think they were kidding, Jill. Ha! I'm not too happy that it looks like we might have skipped most of spring and sprung straight into summer, but I'm glad it's not frozen.
