-Going to Market Days downtown with my Mom and Hayden. I always went to St. George's Market in Belfast on Saturdays, so there's something comforting about being at a market on a Saturday. Being underneath sprawling oak trees wasn't bad, either. Hayden was (as always) a hit, bringing out baby voices in passerbys ("ooh, hiiiii puppy!") and giving bored children a new friend.
-A random seagull gathering in the skies above the Target parking lot. I live about 45 minutes from the coast, and so hearing their persistent caw-caw-caw was a bit surprising. It made me feel like I was at the beach for a moment.
-Going to Goodwill with Ashley (another Saturday tradition) and finding something amazing. We found our usual fun clothes (me: vintage belt, chinos, a couple of blouses; her: a couple of summery dresses) and were looking through furniture when she mentioned that she had seen a turquoise chair with desk attached outside at the donation spot that she thought looked like my style. We asked about it, the man priced it ($5!) and brought it in. We were accused of having telepathy for knowing it was there. Plus, it was half-price furniture day, so that means I got this beauty for a staggering $2.50. I love it. Maybe even enough to start writing right-handed. :)
