In between commission work and my life just being… overall, well, interesting/busy, blogging has been more in the back of my mind. As such, I’ve accumulated quite a few posts of happenings and things to share. Life has been a lot of fun, in multiple ways, and other than my recent griping about pretty inconsequential stuff at the end of the day, I’ve had a lot of reasons to feel happy. 😊
One of the recent fun things I got to do is a first outing with both of my friends, Mandie and Shelly, at the same time. It was so much fun –and too short, but I had so much to do in the evening. Even as we got home, Mandie and Shelly sat with me as I began to work on dinner, and at least I spent a few more minutes with them that way.
It’s actually completely alien to me, to be cooking while talking with two girl friends. It felt really nice.
We went to Flamingo Road Nursery, where Mandie and I went recently. Since we went too late last time and Shelly had never been, and we wanted to go on a hayride, it was a natural choice while that sort of event is still going on. As soon as we got there, we went straight to the hayride area:
I decided to bring Frito with me that day. I’d never taken him out before. Here he is waiting while we got our tickets:
And here are Mandie and Shelly! We felt just like little kids sitting on the hay with our stuffies and our feet hanging off the side.
Here are lots of scarecrow photos I took during the ride:
Shelly took a photo of me and Frito too:
After that, we walked around the nursery for a bit, and I took this photo of Frito among the sunflowers:
Then we had lunch in the cafe and made plans for afterwards: Starbucks and a bookstore. I took this photo in the cafe, before leaving, of our three stuffies together:
I meant to share a huge, amazing bookstore with Mandie and Shelly, and somehow directed us somewhere else by mistake. But this place, while much smaller, was too a treasure, and a lot of fun. Mandie and Shelly got multiple books, but as I’ve been quite broke, I just picked up a $1 book from the sale rack outside:
This place had truly wonderful finds, but the prices were $20 or so for anything worthwhile… that’s a little rough.
Anyway, it was loads of fun, and we already have plans for next time. I’m looking forward to it! 🥰
