New Things, New Adventures

I hope your long weekend was great.

It was wonderful here.
Weather cooled down just a bit.
Family home. No plans.
We swam. Ate. Hung out together. Played Mario Wii. Started a new book.

Sunday, I got to visit a flea market that I had
been wanting to go to.
It was GREAT.
Better then the Rose Bowl, better then Vets.
At least for me it was.
I can't wait to go back.

It was a beautiful morning today, so I thought I'd play around
with my camera.

I did.
It was fun.
Played with the lighting.
Played with different spots.

Then I ran a few errands.
Got my hubby a few small gifts,
its his first day back to school tomorrow, I like to
surprise him with a little something.
Insert sad face now, he has been home all summer,
and tomorrow he goes back.
How wonderful it has been.
But fun to get back to schedule as well.
When I came home he met me outside.
Wondered why, but thought it was nice.
Well, he wanted to show me this incredible
web and the huge spider who was living
in it.
It was as big as a quarter, the body of the spider, not to mention his legs.
May not be big to you but it is HUGE to us (me).
It was brown and striped, couldn't look at it for to long, it kind a freaked me out.
Anyway, I had remembered that is were I was
playing with my camera, in that exact spot.
If you take a look at this picture below.
Right above her right shoulder,
yep, the spider, its brown.
I know it looks small but I swear, it was pretty big.
You can't see it very good, but its there.
Holy cow, I would have felt so bad if
she would have back up into that web.
Luckily she didn't.

Sunday Drive
Family Days
I remember my mom telling me that's
what they did on Sundays, they took family drives.
No destination, they just drove. The whole family.
I think, back then, it was popular.

So today
my husband asked me
if I wanted to take a drive.
We don't do it often
but it reminds me of the olden days.
I like that.

The girls and I had no idea where we were
going but he did.
We arrived at a great outdoor strip mall
down by the beach.
A few of my favorite stores were there.
It was great.
Found these floors in one of them
I just love them.
We hope to
get them in our home someday.

They are old, worn and wonderful.

What did you do this weekend?
