Today we went to the flea market. It is an annual tradition with our friends to go in January, since that month is by far the least crowded. There is a reason for that. It has to do with the temperatures in January. ;-) I figure I saved $20 more than once throughout the day simply because I wasn't willing to take my mittens off and get into my wallet.
I bought ear muffs two minutes after we arrived. I found a gray knitted thing that was pretty cute, but decidedly questionable for a middle aged woman. Im not sure anyone over the age of eleven is qualified to sport an enormous crocheted flower near their forehead, but I would have wrapped just about anything around my head to rescue my ears. I never would have made it without the muffs!
My favorite thing about the flea market in Canton are the fresh squeezed lemonade stands. I probably should have scouted for steaming coffee or hot cocoa, but instead I had TWO iced lemonades. They are so delicious!!! At least I wasn't as bad as Emma, who chose ice cream for her treat.
It was a really great day. I love spending time with these girls, freezing temps or not, and the more we laughed the warmer we stayed!
Oh! And yesterday I posted over at my quilt blog. I'm going to get back to that in the coming year. Blogging makes the short list of resolutions. :-)
