Road Trip!

I met Chris this morning for breakfast and then we headed down the road for a little retail therapy.  :o)   Our first stop was Lynne's in Siler City for some inexpensive linen, fabric, and trims.  Chris bought the linen and fabric - I escaped with just a few trims. 

We then headed down the road a bit to the orchard.  Not a whole lot happening there yet but we did pick up some fresh corn, blueberries, and I snagged a couple of tomatoes.  I can't believe I didn't take any pictures.  I had my camera but completely forgot about it!  I was having so much fun talking and looking it just didn't even cross my mind.

 Isn't this ornament just the cutest?!  Chris gifted me with it and the wonderful apple scented hand soap below.  She also gave me this cute little fall pattern that she just finished stitching.  I promptly hung the ornament on my summer/patriotic tree and I just can't stop admiring it.  Thanks Chris for lovely gifts but mostly for the lovely friendship and time spent together today.  I am already looking forward to the next time. 
We had a new visitor to our yard last week:
We have lived here 3 years and this is the first one I have seen.  I am just hoping he doesn't find his way into my garden - I hear they really like tomatoes.  Despite the drought here, my tomatoes and cucumbers are thriving.  I expect to be picking my first cukes sometime this week and I may even get a cherry tomato tomorrow.

I hope you are all having a good weekend.  I am about to settle in on the sofa for a movie and lots of stitching on the Mystery Sampler.
