7:50 AM - we take our kids to school. Then we stand in the schoolyard and watch hot-air balloons float past. It's the first day of Balloon Fiesta. We don't go; we just like to watch the balloons.
8:30 AM - coffee and a raspberry-filled beignet at Flying Star. Long, leisurely chat, three coffee refills and a lot of laughter (some guffaws).
9:45 AM - we hit up an antiques mall we've never visited before. It's huge, and awesome. We heart old things.
(A sweet little vintage crocheted hot-pad for me; I think I'll frame it to hang in the kitchen).
11:30 AM - time to get some lunch for ourselves; standing in line for good burritos.
11:45 AM - we take our lunch to a little park that we keep driving past and saying we'll eat lunch in someday. That day has come.
(Burritos and graffiti).
12:15 PM - there's an estate sale in a house right across the street from the park. Jackpot(s).
(Ancient photographic equipment is cool).
12:30 PM - we leave with a lot of lumber for the $5 they were asking...
12:45 PM - Back to school to pick up these two and hang out while they eat lunch. Back home to play in the yard all afternoon in between loads of laundry (me) and fixing things (him).
Private Friday is my favorite. We have one every other week because of his work schedule and I look forward to it so much. It's time for us, to do things we like to do. We love to eat and we love to look around at old stuff. We bring home a lot less than we used to, but it's still fun. He's fun. Cute and fun. I love spending time with him. Always have and always will.
I took all of these photos with my phone. I didn't feel like carrying my DSLR that day, so I decided I'd just rely on my phone's camera. I liked the convenience of it, and I think I want to try using it more often. I have to be careful though; I accidentally put the camera on some kind of automatic picture-taking setting and it took nearly 150 photos of my legs and feet, and linoleum flooring and dusty-rose carpeting, as I walked around the estate sale with my phone held down at my side. So many photos! My flip-flops are cute but not that cute.
