Five years ago Saturday I wrote this post. ATG has turned 5 years old this weekend.
Cerys and her fifth grade class went on a field trip to Russian Gulch for most of the week. They arrived home on Thursday with Friday being a rest day. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get out to thrift but Cerys was very enthusiastic about going out with me. We hit two estate sales and had a lovely lunch together at In-N-Out Burger.
I also found this collection of fabric.
Groovy tiki mug from Trader Dick's out of Nevada. $3.
Saturday was pouring with rain and most sales were cancelled. Keiran and I did find two sales next door to each other. There wasn't much there but I did spot a good size box marked Sewing under a table. I asked if it was for sale. When the seller said yes I asked how much. I had taken a peek and saw that it was full of vintage sewing supplies including heaps of buttons. She said $10. Woot.
This is our last week of school. This summer is going to be our first summer where we truly enjoy living in California. Last summer was very difficult with the stress of not selling our house. We also thought that our renter was going to move out leaving us with a huge monthly payment of mortgage and rental house. This summer we are going to play tennis, take hikes, go swimming, craft and eat our way through Sonoma County.
This will be a summer of day trips, spending time with the children, not being on the computer so much and hopefully our first real vacation in what feels like years.
