One of THOSE Days

It started with no coffee. 
So I jumped in my vehicle and headed to the shop
had to drive around a dead skunk
at the end of my driveway. 

I should have gone back to bed. 
It did not get better. 

in a friend's behavior
that really hurt my feelings. 
I should have thicker skin by this point in life, I guess. 

But I am still counting my blessings, 
time with some of my grandchildren...
well spent. 

Those little arms around your neck 
a little boy laying in your arms in his blanket
"color with me, Mamaw"
are all the healing 
a heart needs!

And the ladies in the picture?
A yard sale find for $1! 
A pair just like that hung in our living room 
throughout my entire childhood...

I could not pass them up!

more planter that rode home

Loving the pink this summer!

437 Reasons Why JWS Should Not Be Unsupervised At An Auction

Laughing and chuckling
10:30 last night, 
arrives home from the auction
where he was 
serving food.

Two indicators that it was about to go bad:
1. The truck is sitting at the side door and not in the garage.
2. The side door is propped open. 

He is excited
about his finds....

As a side note, 
I did not go to this auction because:
1.  I am still tired from the fair.
2. The cleaning lady was supposed to come today and I did not want a mess. 

JWS did not get that memo. 

So this morning found me 

Piles to be junked,
piles to go back to the auction,
piles of treasures for other people,
a small pile to keep
piles to be priced to go to the shop.

He did get some good finds,

But there was a lot of sorting to find them. 

And a lot of questionable purchases...

This being the BIGGEST 
questionable purchase. 

Is there a clown lover's anonymous?
Because this obsession 
needs help!
