In my post where I debuted my lovely covington blue cabinet, I left this sign sitting on the floor. Several people left comments saying that they liked it, so I thought I’d show you the hung version. I cannot tell you exactly why I like this sign SO much, but I love it. It spoke to me one morning on our vacation and it said, “Buy me! Do it for your Town & Country.”
There was nothing to do but open my wallet, swat at the escaping moths, and hand over $2. Yard sales happen to be my number one favorite place to shop. I’d do so well in countries with open air markets.
I even went junking on my vacation…Maine is such a great place to junk…everything is old in Maine. Yard sales were not the only reason I awoke before the roosters (on my VACATION!).
Yes, I can hardly believe it myself; however, ON MY VACATION, I did drag my lazy body out of bed to catch a chilly sunrise. Unfortunately, my waves were a mass of corkscrew like hay blown haphazardly around my head. No, I don’t have a picture!
The fact that my hair expands at night as if it were being pumped with air like a mattress never reaching its maximum firmness, does nothing to help my pre-shower appearance. After almost 11 years, my husband (bald, I might add) still gawks at me upon awakening.
Did I mention my kids?
They were NOT interested in seeing a sunrise; however, it was one of those moments in life that I, as their parent, felt certain would be momentous. So, at precisely 5 am, my husband and I dragged the children from their bunks. With sleep crusted eyes, a staggering gate, and moans of protest, my husband half-dragged, half-carried my son into the shower.
As if the streams of never quite hot water were not enough persecution, my husband, in his best drill sargeant’s voice, stood outside the shower curtain grunting things like, “Come on boy, what’s takin you so long?” and “Do you think we’ve got all day…Move, Move, Move!”
No, it was not a happy morning for my children and they were unimpressed by a coastal sunrise. Did I mention the fact that an extremely thick fog cut down on visibility? I did get some great pictures of a “lobstah” trap and that made the morning worth while in my book.
