Junk Bonanza 2010

Another year of junkin at the "junk bonanza" with Therese, Laurie and Donna. We saw lots of old refurbished, reclaimed and reused stuff. T bought a few little goodies. I did get 5 vintage christmas ornaments for a buck each. The day is always a fun way to spend time with the girls.


Lucky me got 2 tickets as a birthday gift from my boss Michele to go and see WICKED at the famous Orpheum Theater in downtown Minneapolis. Therese Trudell was my date and we had a lovely evening. I really enjoyed the music and the twist in the story is amazing! The costumes and sets were out of this world.

So long, farewell

To summer that sad to see you go. The long lazy days of summer will soon be taken over by homework, religion classes, swim practice, volunteer hours, school get the idea. But until we meet again next June I bid you farewell. I will dream about you when the temps dip down to below zero. You are my favorite time of the year!

It is that time of the year and boy is it good this year! One of the many reasons we love being back in Minnesota, picked in the morning and eaten in the afternoon!
