Art Booty

It was pouring rain when Nancy arrived yesterday morning and I (and she) had lost power. But a sale waits for no one!

The warehouse sale was fantastic - I could have bought twice as much! Sue was very helpful and just as nice as she always is and we both filled up a large brown bag with goodies. Because of the awful weather (although, we desperately need the rain), the sale may be extended to another day. If I hear more, I will let you know.

Nancy had read about an estate sale right nearby in the newspaper the day before and so we had an additional adventure for after the warehouse sale.

It was too early for lunch when we were done "shopping" so we stopped at the Jackson Coffee Company on Mechanic Street and had a lovely cup of coffee (Nancy had tea) and a muffin. Mine was banana and hers was some kind of sweet with cherries and cream cheese. Yummy!

Nancy had brought me goodies as well and her friend had loaned me the book "Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral" by Kris Radish. Once I started reading I wanted to read the whole book, and did. It was fun; it was moving; it was silly; it had too pat an ending; it was such a good read that I am going to go to the library and find more of her books.

I am on my first mug of coffee and am meeting my Algebra tutee at 9 at Panera. I think I'll wait to eat until I get there and then I will have an apple muffin with my hazelnut coffee.

I'm hoping my son is coming over this afternoon and then tomorrow morning to work on his Algebra homework.

I'm getting the baby (22 month old) sometime tomorrow and keeping her until some time Monday. Should be great fun!!

Gotta go! I'll try to work with something from my loot from the sales later today and post about it tomorrow.
