On our drive out in the country side we came across this little herd of baby llamas...furry and cute too...
and trees laden down with California oranges...
We passed these cyclists thinking of Mim and her DH...
and this bucolic scene...
Finally coming to a good garage sale where I was offered a box of goodies for $2. I'd spied some thread inside and was digging for it when the woman said I could have the whole box for two bucks...when I got it home I found fifty spools of thread, most full and of good quality.
I figure I have here about $150 worth of thread.
Also in same box are twelve rolls of pretty ribbons some with prices of $12 on them!
There were sewing machine needles the kind I use on my machine; pin cushions, something I needed, and much much more.
We went to see a movie at the theater!
DH wanted to see True Grit on the big screen.
We had recently watched the original with John Wayne on TV and were glad
to see they stuck to the story closely; and were even better in the costume department. Except for a pair of furry chaps one cowhand was wearing, which DH happened to know had not been made for quite a few years later in history! I swear, he could be a consultant for the historical aspects of films. The one thing neither of us enjoyed was sitting up close and feeling like the splattered blood was landing on us as well as the person being shot on the screen. We prefer
the old cowboy movies without blood.
You know you are getting old when the prices of movies shocks you!
This was a matinee (4:45 PM) and bargain and senior prices was $7.50~
We saw a family with three kids come in and they had to have paid $37 and the popcorn we got, size medium was $6.50! I didn't ask what he paid for the soda.
Well, when I was a little girl movies were 25 cents and popcorn ten cents!
I don't remember paying more than $4 max as an adult.
So I guess it HAS been a while! *************************************************
At home on Sunday I found two of my daffodils had bloomed open!
And two crows were having a very loud conversation on top of our two redwood trees!
