Most Wednesdays I find myself joining Sadie for a quick car nap while waiting for the boys to finish piano. There are a few weeks, however, when sleep fails to find her on our drive across town and then I know exactly what to do with that precious hour. We hit the thrift stores that are so conveniently located by their teacher's house.
It's a quick break from our normal routine and the thrill of the hunt is always exciting. Three finds from today... Leather booties, a twirly dress (possibly for Halloween?) and a funky yellow lamp. Everything for less than $15.
We always end up back in front of the house with a few minutes to spare. Precious minutes I use to knit or read. Today, both were in the car. It was a tough choice. Next time I need to bring a book on tape. That way I can do both.

(Blogging again now that we're settled... most of the future posts will be from our adventures over the summer, but for now, some of our recent experiences...)
|The 'heart rock' they found for me|
|She was nervous the whole time. I'm not sure if we've ever hiked in the rain...|
|This gate served as a prominent reminder of the ferocity of mother nature.|
|You can see the flooded road here. |
There are three areas where the road is covered.
|Chasing his 'boat'|
We found a taste of fall and a rushing river...two things we didn't anticipate this far south. Our friends mentioned that every time they visit the waterfall it's a different experience. Good to know for next time, because there will be a next time. We're anxious for Dean to see it and to be able to see it when it's not as fierce. Maybe find a place or two where we can slide down some rocks without danger of the river washing us away. For today, it was soggy and perfect.
