We were just sitting around talking about Margie when I realized that today was Tuesday so I thought I would just post it here & let y'all know what's going on.
I've had a busy two weeks so haven't been posting as much -- due to vacationing coworkers I've worked on my last two days off. Then we had a health fair Thursday night so I worked then. Then this weekend Room With a Past was open so I worked there. Whew..... I'm tired now.
Our church's family camp at Lake Tahoe started Friday, too. Mark & Lauren went up with some friends Saturday. They camped. Glenn & Jordann went up after church Sunday. They stayed in a hotel. I took Margie to the early service then we went out to eat & went shopping. We went to the thrift store to find books. At our favorite thrift store hardbacks are always $1.00 and paperbacks are 75c. I told her the price then we started looking. She found a hardback she liked and looked at the dust jacket.
Margie:I like this author. But this book is $18.99. Don't spend that much on me. Me: No, they're all $1.00. Margie:Really??? Wow, that's great.
Looked around a little more. Found several paperbacks & started a stack. Margie: Ann, these books all cost too much. You don't need to spend that much on me. Me:No, they're all 75c. Margie:Really??? Wow, that's great.
I think we repeated this conversation twice more before we walked over to look at clothes. She needs another cardigan because she's always cold & one of hers is getting very worn. She also needed a purse -- which she found for only $2.00 Didn't find a cardigan, but did find a couple of summer shirts. I told her all the clothes were $4.50. I found some & needed to try them on so she sat in the chair right outside the dressing room. When I came out she was gone. She was at the checkout talking to one of the employees. Margie: Ann, these aren't on sale. Don't buy them, they're too expensive. Me: Margie, the full price is only $4.50. Margie: Really? Wow!
She did get a little tired by the time we were through but physically she was having a good day.
So... fast forward to this afternoon. I went out to pick my delicious home grown tomatoes and when I reached in to grab one this HUGE black widow came running toward me! Tonight I was telling the family about it so Glenn & Mark went out to find it for me. It was between the boards of the fence so Glenn sprayed it & Mark smushed it with my broom. Sons do come in handy! I think Jordy was running around screaming with me & Lauren was inside getting ready for VBS.
