Another Weekend Flies By

I had a 4 day weekend and oh, I planned to get so much done.
Not.....

Everyday things that have to be done got in the way

I did take time to pick some of my Zinnia's and Black Eye Susan's

It is nice to walk in the kitchen and see a cheery bouquet.

Friday morning a distant cousin called and was coming through St Louis and wanted to know if we could meet for breakfast, so I was up early to meet them at 0800.


I had to take my car in for warranty work on.
It ended up taking from Wed to Friday when I got my car back.
So Friday morning I headed to get the car and afterward had to make a stop, for a friend who wanted a particular piece of Pyrex I had found.

So, then I went hunting!
Oh no more Pyrex!

2 yellow and black gooseberry bowls.
It was not on my wish list, but won't they look great in the kitchen at 1515?

the daisy is what I went to get for my girlfriend.

I never find anything at GW and rarely go
But, as I turned I saw the box with the word PYREX
A coffee carafe I think had never been out of the box, I actually thought the 
burner was missing but it was under another piece of cardboard.
Best of all it was $4
It may be going home to one of my friends daughter's, not sure, should I keep it?

and since I had to clean the car out I forgot I had this in the trunk
a great picnic basket

Saturday some cleaning and yesterday I went to get a new i phone, since mine met with some asphalt during the Reunion. I could use it still fine but it was getting slow. I swear it took forever to upgrade it and fix a few issues with my husbands phone.
So today I need to do laundry, grocery shop and finish cleaning!
So I better get off of here.

Have a cheerful Monday

Ann,
How well I remember about "life" getting in the way of my planned vacation days off from school. I was always thrilled to have "Snow Days". . .those where you could have a day to do whatever your heart desired!!! Look on the sunny side. . .those chores and errands are done for a while. On to better things ahead!!!
Fondly,
Pat
