I spent last weekend in the city with my parents; Mama had a cornea transplant, and thank you God that everything went well and she's safely and happily back home in Newfoundland.
Friday night, I stayed at a B&B downtown; I had a coupon that needed to be used before the end of the year, and I thought it would be good to go back to a quiet place after the anxiousness and stress of my Mom's operation. I was right!
|It was a lovely place with a comfortable bed, a mini fridge for my wine and a radio already set to a soothing, oldies station.|
|I lay back in the bubbles and listened to Elvis and Pat Boone and Rosemary Clooney .... and I said a little prayer of thanks as the tension melted away.|
On Sat afternoon while my Mom had a nap, Dad and I went to ValueVillage. Thank goodness for fathers who love thrift stores!
|This was my big prize for the day: a Chinese collapsible brass tray table for $24.99. I've wanted one of these since the 70's: better late than never!|
My Dad insisted on paying for everything including my Skinny Vanilla Latte from Starbucks -- "To say thank you for my giving up my weekend to be with them." I would never have stayed away; but it made me feel like a little girl again to have my Daddy buy me treats.
How was your thrifting this week?
