A good weekend

I love a quiet, restful weekend, don't you?  Yesterday I first picked up a grande mocha from Starbucks and then headed to our local Farmer's Market.

 I bought some plants- for the planter out front, a few Violas in yellow and purple and a couple of Coleus.  For the kitchen, an aloe plant and for the living room, a jade.  Both the aloe and the jade are tipped in red.  Then I went to Bloomington Bagel for an orange juice and a bagel with sun dried tomato schmear. 
 And, I wore these:  my NAOTs in pink garden flower.  Are they adorable or what? 
After that I visited my favorite thrift shop where I scored several finds.  When I interviewed for my new job, I wore $5.00 navy Dockers,  $1.00 Eddie Bauer cream oxford and a $1.00 fuchsia pink wool blazer from this shop.  I added a pink floral scarf, stockings and black heels to complete the ensemble.  I was very happy to tell the woman who runs the shop that I was hired after that interview.  Talk about scoring!

Then I came home and did some yard work and tidied up the back patio and furniture.  Doug worked on the chicken coop with the assistance of our special needs neighbor who was happy to pocket the $25.00 that he earned. 

This morning I ran away to the $5. movie and saw the 11:20 a.m. showing of "Something Borrowed."  Total chick flick and I totally enjoyed it.  Do you ever feel like running away and escaping?  I think it is a wonderful feeling sometimes.

This afternoon it was rainy and cool.  I felt like baking a cake.  I made a pineapple upside-down cake using a yellow box mix.  
 Then I made a pot of coffee and Doug and I sat down to read the Sunday paper.
 A quiet, uneventful (delicious) weekend.  Now, tell me all about your weekend!

Your cake looks delish. Can't wait till the farmer's markets up here get started. I'm antsy for fresh veggies and Amish baked goods (pretty sure they're high in points - but so worth it!)
