We had such a busy day yesterday! It was so much fun! We went junking in the morning as usual. Then it was off to our youngest grandson’s first soccer game and then to our daughter’s house to celebrate our granddaughter’s tenth birthday. It was a long day but fun.
Our Grandson had had only one practice for his first soccer game. He did great! I was so proud of him. When our oldest grandson played soccer, he was more interested in skipping around the field. It was fun to watch and is a great memory. We still tease him. But the younger one got in there and mixed it up, chasing the ball. He loved it. What fun watching the grands grow up and try new things. As soon as the game whistle blew ending the game, the skies opened up and we were in a deluge. We huddled under the only tree, which is a no no in a storm. There wasn’t much cover and we had to get to the truck. We were parked all the way across the parking lot. So I took my shoes off and ran barefoot in the rain to the truck. We were all laughing as we tried to dodge the rain drops. We had to take a detour home to get dried and changed before we went to the birthday party. Between the party, the rain, the game, we had a great time.
As far as the yard sales go, we didn’t find many. I really don’t understand the lack of sales. They’ve just dried up. Most of what I found was at two sales, one on Friday, one on Saturday. I did find some neat things. Friday I found these figurines.
This one is about 30″ tall. She’s so pretty! It’s a piece from Mexico. There are customers out there who collect Mexican pieces.
On Saturday I found games.
And best of all, Vampire games.
I also found books. Cookbooks, fun cookbooks!
I love the “Martha’s in Jail, Forget the Quail” book.
I found unusual cookbooks. Wonder what it was like cooking on a coal fired stove? I have a chance to read about it, hope it never comes to actual experience. Our poor ancestors really had to work to do what we do in such a short time.
I found so many books. I’ve gone most of the summer without finding many books but yesterday I hit the jackpot. I found some books from the Tales from Grace Chapel Inn series. And the Minister’s Wife mystery series. And more:
I brought home bags and bags of books.
I saved the best find for the last. These are wood trays from Indonesia. They are just so neat. They’re teak and they are hand carved. I don’t have a clue as to what they would be used for. They’re very heavy so you wouldn’t want to use them as trays. Any ideas?
