Brilliant Day

When I got home from my Mother’s Day morning alone, Owen was arguing his case for going fishing. He had everything laid out on the coffee table and proceeded to point everything out. “Tackle, fishing pole, 9 worms, and bucket of water for when we catch a fish. This is going to be brilliant!” He was right. Today was brilliant.
Starting with the glorious weather, today began with breakfast in bed (along with 2 boys bouncing, inching, nuzzling closer to me all while I’m counter acting the mattress springs’ bouncing with my hand clutching my coffee). Not a drop spilled, I must say. Anxious to leave my children behind for some “me” time, I scurried out the door by 9 AM to check out a vintage sale on Camano Island and was not disappointed! Deb Kennedy and her husband Bob and I have some mutual friends in the junking world but I had never met them until today. Again, I’m reminded that it’s people like them that make this group of junkers so appealing and welcoming. We talked like we had known each other for years. I am looking forward to participating in some of the same sales as them this season. I snapped a few pics of their glorious grounds today. Enjoy!

 I couldn’t believe this is what was left after a successful sale in California last week and a great turnout yesterday. I’m in awe of their productivity!

When I got home, we planted some vegetable and herb seeds in our container garden. We’ve talked about doing a garden every year but never actually get around to doing one. This year is different! Hopefully this summer we’ll be snacking on carrots, cucumbers, peas, green onions, basil, chives, strawberries and rosemary. After that we did go fishing and I even cut Tate’s hair. He looks 10! So now I’m resisting the urge to clean the house. It doesn’t really take that much effort to resist. Still basking in how brilliant today really was.

    What a wonderful day! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself… I also found myself clutching my coffee while boys bounced on the bed. Loved every minute of it. Did you buy anything on Camano?!!
