Back to work
Well, I had my day off and go back to work tomorrow. It's a short day, but the busiest one.
We got up at 6 am and went to the flea market. It was only 40F when we left. I wore two sweatshirts and a windbreaker jacket over a t-shirt. By 8 am I had shed all but the t-shirt and jeans, of course. It was 74F when we left at 2:30 pm. It was sunny with a light breeze. A truly beautiful day. I was lazy and almost went to sleep sitting in the chair. I only helped unpack and then pack up again. We stopped and brought sandwiches coming home. I made sausage and cheese omelets later in the evening. Chance thought they were good. I always make an extra for her if we are having eggs. Eggs help make a dog's coat shiny. Chance has two blankets on a large round, padded doggy bed. They were a real mess. I picked them up and folded them and made them flat. I couldn't see how it would be comfortable to sleep on the mess they were. A bit later I was making some tea and looked out into the laundry room. She was pulling and tugging and making an awful mess out of the blankets. I asked her what she was doing. She looked at me like I must be demented. Couldn't I see that she was making her bed? Dogs!!!
We did well at the flea market. Sold a lot of stuff that we sorted and packed on Thursday. Sold some things we'd had for a bit. Sold a couple large items. Not expensive, but large. Things that took up a lot of space. I bought a table and chairs. I went back and DR asked me what I bought. I told him a table and chairs. He looked at me and asked, "How big?" He was thinking about how he'd get it home. I showed him. The table is about 4 1/2 by 6 inches and the chairs match it in size. I'm going to use it for little bears. He was relieved that he didn't have to make room for a big table and chairs. I also found a little bear to buy. Only paid 50 cents for it but it's from 1959. DR bought a pig for me. It's a redware planter. I thought since it's a pig I should grow a vegetable plant in it. Something to eat. Maybe a herb? I could grow basil in it during the winter or mint. It's smiling and happy looking.
I have to get a picture of a big pot he bought too. It's garden junk. It used to have two handles but one is broken so it only has one. But I like it. It's that redware too. Pretty soon we will have so much in the yard and garden we won't have room for plants. Time for bed. Dooley
