PD and I went to the flea market at the park today instead of tomorrow. I thought it might be nice to just have an at-home day before going back to work.
I did pretty good as far as not buying too much stuff I don’t need. I think I took about $70 with me and came home with a ten and some change. Mostly what I bought were cds. I got Warren Zevon’s The Wind, a Michelle Branch, Slim Dunlap (ex-‘Mats member), Outkast, Lemonheads, Hooters, (really.) Joni Mitchell and one of those American Eagle Outfitter’s Compilations. I have three or four of those and no complaints. I think maybe that’s it for the cds. I picked up a 3-pack of Yankee Leather scented car fresheners. (Love those.) Pretty much everything else was art supplies. I found a really cool vendor who had printed up a lot of nostalgic art things and framed them or made magnets or bookmarks and greeting cards. A lot were pictures by my favorite artist John Waterhouse. So I had to buy a bagful of that stuff. I also bought a blue glass bottle for my kitchen window collection and two marbles. And a tin of colored pencils. PD bought a dvd and a Batman figure for Little Juju. Oh, yeah and I bought some hair thingies and a mink bracelet for Little Miss Juju. I think that’s it.
We had a fun day. There were tons of people there and some good music and food. I got a lot of ideas for some art projects. Right now my legs are tired. PD has those attractive white lines on his temples where his sunglasses kept the sun off. I haven’t looked at my shoulders yet but I bet they’re red…
Last night we watched Fracture. (starring my hero, Anthony Hopkins.) Pretty good but I can’t figure out why they called it “Fracture.” Like I need anything else to wonder about… I rented Shopgirl to watch. Will let you know how it is.
I planted wild flowers in my flower beds this year, I think I told you. You would not believe how they’ve grown and how tall and thick they are. There were these crazy vines with huge heart-shaped leaves that just took over. They climbed up the foundation and over the porch railing which is higher than I can reach standing on the ground. Yesterday one of the tendrils grew almost a foot from morning to evening. This morning it bloomed and of all things, they are Morning Glories. Huge, deep purple blossoms and they’re beautiful. I just can’t get over how quickly they grow. And they twine around every single thing in their path. If I’d remembered to replace the batteries in my camera I would take pictures. But you wouldn’t be able to see them anyway… so you’ll just have to take my word for it. In the meantime, I came across this painting of flowers that’s pretty cool. Check it out and then I’m checkin’ out.
Goodnight. Enjoy the Holiday tomorrow. (Today, now. Or yesterday if it’s Tuesday.)
PS Somebody let me know if all these links work. 😉
