This weekend…

This weekend in between soccer games and a quick visit to the hospital after a soccer injury, we squeezed in a visit to the thrift store. We went to see if we could find any Halloween decorations.  There were a few, but none that interested us too much.  My thrifting motto has always been that if interests me enough to pick up and carry through the store while negotiating three children through narrow aisles, packed with people and if I still have it in my hand by the time I reach the check out counter, it is worth purchasing.  This time around I found some pastel dishes (usually not my thing, but I really liked these), a Roseville pottery crock, a corn husk doll sealed in glass from Czechoslovakia and some books for the kids.  Ben found a couple of soccer jerseys and Blackburn snagged a Transformer car from the toy aisle.  I also found two skirts (which I will post a photo of at another time).

Ben and Vita made some gluten-free cinnamon rolls from scratch.  Each time they make them they get better and better. We spent Sunday night putting up some Halloween items, including putting Vita’s Frankenstein monster in the window and hanging up skeleton and ghost lights on the fireplace.

She is much better now.  She went down at the end of the game after scoring three goals back to back. She collided with another girl and hurt her leg.  At first we thought it was her knee because she could not walk so to be safe we took her straight to the hospital.  Turns out she has a very bad bruised muscle.  A very expensive bruise!

  1. Glad your girl is alright. Sounds like a successful thrifting visit. I love the pastel dishes and those cinnamon rolls look delicious! We visited the thrift store (called charity shop here) yesterday and found this an owl rucksack, some DVDs and a black cat torch which I thought would be good for Halloween.

  2. Glad that it was a bruised muscle and it’s good to make sure. Visiting er gets more expensive doesn’t it? She must be an all star with all those plays 🙂
