Just back from a brief 'holiday' with 'The Girls (+1 hubbie)'.
Beautiful... Relaxing...Layed Back...
EVERYTHING a 'Vacation' (as opposed to a 'Trip') should be! I even sunburned my wrist, as I wasn't wearing my wristwatch.
Needless to say, females 're-kindling' (while '+1' fished...) led to some interesting conversations (okay, maybe a 'bit' of alcohol was involved...). After talking with some other 'native-vacationers', one member our group described the acquaintances as 'FANCY!'. This led to in indepth conversation as to what she meant. We all started inputting our own definitions of 'FANCY'. What is YOUR definition of 'FANCY'???????
|So, now I'm home and unpacked...|
NO, this isn't the luggage I packed to go,
...this is EXTRA CARGO I picked up as we were ending our vacation.
All packed and leaving the lake, on our way out of town at 11am, we caught glimpse of a Church setting up a yard sale - WOO-HOO!! The PERFECT ending to a PERFECT week!!
I think it is a Really good thing that we were on a bit of a time-crunch, as well as space in the CAR being limited!!
Up early to gather some RIPE berries before 'The Rains' that we are supposed to have for the next 4days! Managed to get 6quarts - and did you know that if you stain your hands 'mulberry purple', that 'red raspberry' stains GLOW??
I think I managed to make our stop worth-while (wink!wink!)! A couple of retro 1/2 Aprons, Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Souvenir dishtowel, vintage Dr. bag, Rope fish boat-bumper, Wolf Sculpture Owl, Alexandria Bay Souvenir plate, Austin Prod. chalk sculpture, Blue Mountain Pottery Mug, France Fridge Beverage glass Jar, Tupperware burger, Rubens pitcher, 3metalFrog business card holder (?), WearEver Aluminum Teapot, Mardi Gras mask, 2 'Terms of..' towels (golf & fishing), and a whole bag of Canadian vintage recipe books/manuals/advertising!! Nothing was priced individually, they just looked at the pile and quoted a price. These items averaged out to .40¢ each!!
**I Forgot to mention those incredible 'child' skis that I saved in-the-nick-of-time, as they were being tossed into a truck ~ enroute to The Dump!?!
We've been having a ball going through and researching all of these CANADIAN finds!!
trying to play 'catch-up'!
and then the rains set it.
|PERFECT time to make a Mulberry Pie...|
and dream of
'FANCY dinners at The Lake'...
|...and 'FANCY' sunrises...|
...and my Favorite 'FANCY' turquoise Boathouse...
|...and 'FANCY' sunsets.|
