Every since it warmed up, it seems like all we’ve done is work, work, work. Therefore, I designated Saturday as an official Day Off From Chores. Steve heartedly agreed.
Yesterday at the Big Yard Sale in Nahunta, Georgia, was enjoyable. We only stayed for an hour or so but before leaving we indulged in one of our caprices at the Frosty Freeze. I had my Double Fudge Chocolate and Steve had his favorite of Butterscotch, both double scoops on a waffle cone. Hey, if you’re gonna cheat on the diet, go big or go home! lol
Steve bought a Gerber 3-inch folding knife to add to his collection of
ten thousand knives. (Like, he doesn’t have enough? eye roll) I bought a nice pair of blue earrings and an infinity scarf handmade by a local lady for myself. Then Steve suggested the big sparkly pair of earrings for his mother. She likes ’em flashy and gaudy, bless her heart. 😉 Oh, and I also found an Easter Basket that I’m going to deck out in her favorite candy. Thought she’d like that as a treat. You know, since she’s been in the Baptist Home, and off the sauce cough and letting us handle all her finances, she’s been really easy to deal with. I’m actually enjoying her company now. God answers prayer. It only took 40 years, but that’s OK, everything in it’s time, I guess.
After all the yard sale frivolity and sweets debauchery we drove all the way back home, had a quick lunch, then put The Boys (Jack and Sam III) in the back seat and drove around even more. They get super excited when they get to go for a r-i-d-e. Ol’ Jack there on the left looks like he’s giving me a ‘raspberry’, doesn’t he?! Silly boy.
Then we finished the evening with a scrumptious meal of fresh smoked chicken breasts marinated in apple vinegar on the grill, roasted red potatoes baked in the oven and a salad. And, on Saturday evenings, we watch another exciting episode of Midsomer Murders on PBS. The day was so nice I didn’t want it to end! I feel so blessed.
Thank you LORD for these blessings. And thank you friends for stopping by and saying Howdy. Y’all are a blessing too. I hope your Sunday is happy, relaxing and joyous.
