The kids are away...

including husband.
They're on their way to the beach to cheer Uncle Jon on in his Hood to Coast relay run that ends this afternoon. It ends at Seaside Beach in Oregon, so they plan to give him high-fives and then jaunt over to Grandpa's property to say hello, and maybe even take a tractor ride.

So what am I going to do while my babies are away, you ask? 

Well, before I made any sudden jumps, I had to remind myself of how rare the opportunity. 
So I quickly tossed out my initial ideas of how I might spend this day: 
clean house from top to bottom
(including the marker on Asher's wall and the diaper ointment slathered on his blinds)
insert business invoices
grocery shop

Then it came to me.

The Camas Vintage Street Faire starting in 30 minutes!
I must fly upstairs and fix this mess pronto!
I'm expecting oodles of beautiful finds and treasures beyond my hearts content,
and I'll be armed with my Nikon!
If I make a purchase, or two, or three, I will share them with you.
Never mind the if, this is my day, and I am prepared to shop!

Other events on today's list:

a lake run.  (My back is feeling MUCH better.  Hoorah!)
decorate the sweet cookies for tonight's baby shower (show & tell tomorrow, Monday?)
AND
enjoy the quiet.

Everyone needs quiet.

Here's to a fabulous Saturday!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
