Sailing...Yard Sale Style

Today was a day spent yard sale-ing.  I didn't find much today.  Just a pair of overall shorts, a cute skirt, an herb book, 3 rainbow stamp/ink pads (75 cents for the 3!!), a cute stamp of mini flowers, and a butterfly stencils.  I had better luck at the library book sale.  Fill a bag for a buck.  We filled 2!  I scored 10 books!!  Among them: "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", "The Poisonwood Bible", "The Forgotten Garden", a book by Marion Zimmer Bradley that isn't part of the Avalon series, "Three Cups of Tea", "Five Quarters of the Orange", "Fried Green Tomatoes" (I love the movie!!) and a few others.

Between hunting for yard sales, we stopped at Burger King for lunch.  There we are sitting and feasting on our BK delicacies when I looked up and here comes a man crossing the busy street wearing a top hat and ...O.M.G.  he had a monocle too!  Then it hit me, we were near where the weekend anime convention was going on.  Soon I realized there were others in BK from the same convention.  Including the adorable young lady in a Tardis tank dress.

We ended our day at a Barn Sale, basically it was a yard sale in a barn.  This is where I scored the stamp pads.  From there we headed home to relax and then partake of some delicious Papa Murphy's pizza and some cheese cake for dessert. 

Then I discovered I got sunburned!  Surprisingly, thankfully it doesn't hurt.  My lips and cheeks feel a little tingly but my neck and shoulder though red feel okay.  Hopefully it stays that way.

I fully intended or thought about at least of doing some art today.  Just never got that far.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!!
