I"m just now winding down a busy weekend that started with breakfast and an estate auction bright and early yesterday morning. I walked away with some pretty good deals. An antique stained glass lamp (that needs a new cord), a stained glass rooster light for my kitchen, a wicker baby buggy that I used for towels in my spare bathroom, a ladder back chair for the front porch and a wicker sleigh that I filled with a huge bouquet of silk flowers and put it in the center of the dining room table.
After the auction, I came home and floated around the pool with a good book until it was time to pick up my grocery order and stop for Dairy Queen. I'd been craving a chili dog and Reese cup blizzard. And since the weather was nice, I ran through the car wash, even though by the time I drove down the side road coming home, it was dusty again.
This morning we got some much needed rain. That motivated me to work some more on the garden. Which meant a trip to Lowe's. Then to Joann Fabrics. Because I bought a bench at the auction that needs the seat recovered and I needed to find some fabric and decorative tacks. Which I did. I just ran out of time today. And I can't find my hammer. So that's a project for another day.
Tonight, I'm hoping to put the finishing touches on A Not So General Store which will be my contribution to this year's Galena anthology. I also want to get my Independence Day newsletter done, then it's back to work on Ostara. I'm hoping for a late summer release on that, but I"m not making any promises.
Oh! I forgot the best news this week. I have three new baby goats! The summer solstice ushered in the latest additions. And they are already starting to hop and jump around. I can tell you, it's a lot easier having babies in the summer as opposed to in the middle of the winter.
