I got to spend most of last week in Southern California tagging along on BLHubby's business trip. This is the best time of year to visit as the air is clear, the hills are green and everything looks a lot cleaner. We had great times seeing BLHubby's sis and her husband. We had dinner with a couple that have been some of our oldest friends. I said I felt like a young mom cause if I was out with John and Susie then I must be running straight home to pay the babysitter. I stayed a few days with my sister and we did what we do best - thrift shop! I came home with a great haul.
Goodwill bookstore? Best find was "The Jeremy Mouse Book" by Patricia Scarry (wife of the famous Richard Scarry) and illustrated by Hilary Knight. Published in 1960's it is a chapter book for small children. Great for reading a chapter each night at bedtime.
Maybe the best thing I saw I didn't buy, though I did fall in love. This tattered beauty was awesome!
