I let out a cheer on Friday afternoon when I got home and saw this:
No more gaping hole covered with sheets of plywood. No more orange safety fence, cones, and flashing lights. There's still a bit of that on the next block and around the 'hood, but they are finishing up. Rusty already finessed the wonky bricks and the dirt/seed!
I had a smiley-faced visitor early on Saturday morning:
She stayed with me 'til mid-morning. Such a delight. I don't often have just her in my care.
It was city-wide rummage sale day and, though I don't *need* anything, I couldn't resist stopping at a few that looked interesting.
I spent a dollar and brought home three things, one of which was this sink… and the sink was FREE! It has some goofiness around the drain and may drip a bit, but I intend to use it outside and that doesn't really matter that much. I put it to work right away, re-over-dyeing an Eileen Fisher wrap in indigo that I'd just dyed the weekend before. It was originally a terrible-for-me pale peach color, but I bought it because a) I liked the shape, b) it was fabric I could "work" with, and c) it was on super-duper sale… that was quite a while ago, and I finally gave it a dunk (or three).
I baptized myself!
On Sunday morning, I ran out with Kate to a fun little vintage market where her friend Claire had a booth. I found a sweet little bracelet made by Claire – me, who usually wears nothing more than earrings. I'm wearing it today, along with a bracelet of similar style that was given to me a few years ago! What'll happen next?
On Sunday afternoon, Rusty & I attended the wedding of one of my coworkers at a park in Green Bay.
It was a glorious afternoon for such a thing!
The evening wasn't bad, either.
I hope your weekend was good! I am getting used to the idea of my daughter being on the other side of the world. Thankfully, it didn't take long for her to start blogging… and she's already had a tale or two to tell! Here's Post #1 and Post #2, and feel free to subscribe or follow along if you'd like. She will be leaving Auckland today headed for… I don't know exactly where! Hopefully, wherever it is, she'll find some wifi. :)
