Today was a beautiful autumn day here in the Lowcountry, low 70s, clear blue skies, and sunshine. Hard to get better than this when you have plenty of fun errands to complete.
First up: rescue the small sofa/loveseat I bought yesterday from the second-hand store but couldn’t get into my little hatchback. A dear friend was kind enough to lend me her jeep and with back seats removed it was the perfect size. Up the stairs to Reesie’s apartment and hoping she loves it when she gets home tonight. It is a nice solid little piece of furniture and in really great condition aside from a small paint smudge on one arm. Tomorrow I will take the sweet lilac crocheted prayer throw the dear church ladies made for David when he was fighting his cancer. It made him feel better having it, and will be the perfect accent (and smudge hider) for the sofa. Then I will nab a couple of cute throw pillows and it will be adorable.
Next up, take my ‘helper’ (aka Little A) for a quick stop at McD’s for drinks and a haIf hour break on the playground. This one has a tube-slide almost two stories high…and a sign saying it is for children 3-12 and their parents too! Challenge was given, and I crawled up the endless spiral tube, through the maze, following a giggling and taunting boy-child, and there it was: the slide. I got turned…and he shoved me. Middle-aged woman eeeking her way around all the curves and whoosh out the end.
I survived! There may be bruises come morning, ha.
The trip home was blessed with a gorgeous orange half-moon over the river.
Loving life here in the Lowcountry.
