Endless views, endless garage sales, endless fun! This weekend was fantastic. And I found treasures!
We started our day with a quick stop at the new Cherrywood Cafe & Grill in downtown Greenville, CA for some coffee, and something sweet! Cherrywood was ready and prepared. "Treasure Hunters Specials" were available. Perfect!
Fortified and awake with good strong coffee, we headed out, map in hand, to find our treasures! Our first stop was at Ray's house just around the corner from the cafe. My first find, 7 burlap bean bags and one vintage iron. I plan on using the bags to cover my tent weights, and the vintage iron, well that's for a project I have formulating in my head.
Now, onward we go!
"I am smiling"
"No really, smile!"
The real reason for the day was to spend time with my Faithful Sherpa. We both have been so busy! Even though we are together, we aren't. You know, I'm busy knitting, or building something for the booth, he's busy working on the boat, or the house, or some other project.
It was his idea. I wanted to still hold my Stitching Together group. "Please," he said. "Lets spend Saturday together, just the two of us." Now how could I say no!
We drove around the valley, running into friends. "It's like we're at the county fair," Woody said, at one garage sale somewhere.
But it makes for a wonderful day, when you run into friends. There's only one loop around the valley. You are either heading east/west or west/east. Always passing each other on the road at some point.
The Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce indianvalleychamber.snappages.com/ provided signs indicating a garage sale, but you could tell where they were. There was always a gathering of cars out on the street.
And a trail of people heading to the house. And you never know what you'll find out there!
I expected saddles. The Indian Valley is cowboy country, filled with farms and ranches.
But I didn't expect to find a left hand drive Morris Minor car, and a right hand drive Morris Minor Truck!
It was almost 2:00 pm, and we were getting hungry and thirsty. So we stopped into Young's Market, in downtown Taylorsville bit.ly/2pRtLVF. Of course that's where we found everyone else enjoying their lunch.
We headed back out there, stopping here and there, finding a paper shredder, and beautifully rusted turquoise 2 drawer file cabinet! Treasures, real treasures!
But the best treasure we found that day was time together.
Babe, you were right, we truly needed this time off from all our projects, tasks, and work to spend time together! Thank you for a wonderful Saturday full of adventures!
