I walked 6.3 miles.
We enjoyed our time at the auction on Saturday. On the way we stopped and got subs from Subway and put them in a little cooler along with a couple of sodas which we ate at the auction. They have food there but I don't like the whole set up and would rather not eat it.
As I was walking around looking at all the stuff to be auctioned off, this old guy comes up to me and says, "Nice to see a kid here." I look at him and look around and he says to me, "You're the kid," I just look at him and chuckle. Then he says, "Look around most of the women here are old. I'm 87, to me you are a kid." Cheryl must have done magic with my hair trim and color earlier that morning!! : )
I didn't get the things I was interested in but I did pick up a couple of little things. One of the things that I didn't get was an old wooden wash board like this one that I have hanging by my washing machine.
We stopped bidding at $22.50 and I think it ended up going to $50.
There was a nice little green depression glass candy dish with a handle that I wanted but didn't get that either. I forget how much it went for. I only tell about that because Ken was in the back of the room looking at something when he saw a green dish being bid on and he thought it was the dish I wanted. As soon as he made the first bid he realized it wasn't the right one but no one else bid so we got a green reamer and another glass dish for just $2. The green reamer we will sell at a yard sale because I already have one. But I thought this little dish was cute so decided to keep it. The shape of it reminds me of an old bath tub!! I'm not sure what I'll use it for but I like it. I also got another old syrup glass bank for the coins I find on my walks.
Ken didn't get anything that he wanted either but we still had a nice time. It was also a nice day for a ride. We stayed off the highway and went the back way. It's only about an hour and 15 minute ride. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon.
There are always new housing developments being built in our area and we like to go and look in the model homes - I like this better than Ken, but he goes along with me. Yesterday afternoon we went to visit one of these homes. We were surprised when we walked in the townhouse model to find that it was our house plan. It was still fun to see how different it was, though the same. The model looked so perfect, clean and neat without anything out of place and it looked beautiful. I was thinking of how much better it looked than our house. That is until I got home and walked inside our house. It may not be perfect, but it looked cozy, comfortable and so homey. I was happy to be home in my house. : )
I put the television on at 10:00 this morning all set to do Body Electric. Surprise!! It wasn't on. That happened on Friday too. Anyway there was a stretching program on and I did that instead. Oh, it felt so good to stretch and I really enjoyed the half hour. The program is called Classical Stretch.
I also did ten minutes of weight lifting just to round off the workout.
I have had a busy morning doing a bunch of stuff which include hanging three loads of laundry outside. It was coming in from hanging that third load, that I was getting a bit hungry and realized that I hadn't had any breakfast and it was a few minutes before noon!! So I made pancakes and had one. I guess I'll be eating a late lunch!!
So here I am now writing this after eating my pancake. Thought I take a break, then get back to work. I'll be back on the computer later to visit blogs.
The temperature is supposed to reach 80 this afternoon - right now at 12:30 it is 65 degrees. If it does get to 80 or the high 70's I will make some time to sit out on the deck too.
Hope you enjoy your Monday and that you find bits of happiness scattered throughout your day.
A smile from me to you.
Happyone : )
Time is the coin of your life.
It is the only coin you have,
and only you can determine how it will be spent.
Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
