We went to do our grocery shopping yesterday and no sooner was I in the store than the sole of my right shoe came almost totally off, Just about 2" at the toe part still was attached. I hobbled my way through the store and surprisingly enough only one person kindly told me about some special shoe Goo that I could fix my shoe with. Rather embarrassing.
I did do my shopping and even found some of my favourite marmalade on sale!! Are you fond of marmalade? I've made my own but it's never quite like this brand.
DH and I went to some garage sales this morning. No teacups but books are right up there at the top of my list as well. This whimsical fairy book has secret envelopes that still have their tiny notes inside.
Another book that I was so pleased to find is this one. I'm one who picks up dropped grocery lists and reads what others buy. I pick up notes that I find on the ground in the park ( I've found "breaking up" kind of notes as well as love notes. I keep them all. So you understand why this book appeals to me. The author was a book seller as were his parents. From the age of 8 he sorted through books often finding bits of cards or letters that had been used as bookmarks and forgotten. Even as an adult he continues to be intrigued by what shows up. ( He even found a very old dry marijuana leaf in a cookbook)
That's been my Saturday so far. I did get some outside chores done. Youngest son came by and wielded the big manual cutter as he cut down the row of Lavender then he went on to the Hostas finishing up with the Astilbes. I came behind him and gathered armloads to out in the garden waste cans ( which we'll put out for pick-up on garbage day).
Thanks for stopping by, Granny Marigold
