Mom, Downton, Bruce, and Gymnastics.

Sean's mom came into town this weekend and it was such a blast having her at the house.  We ate great food, spent a ton of time on the porch, watched lots of Downton Abbey, and zoomed around to all of our favorite spots in town.  I always love searching through old books, so on Sunday we went to McKay's, and wowza- have you ever seen so many used books??


I got these two books... one of which was only 5 cents.  5 cents!!! 


Sean came home with some great music, including Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska on vinyl.  Amen? Amen.

This morning, after a hearty breakfast at one of our favorite diners, we took mom back to the airport.  So sad. Right now, she's probably soaring towards New England, 30,000 feet above one of your heads :) Wave to her will ya? We miss her already.

How was your weekend?  Have you been watching the Olympics?!?? Are you ready for this? I'm about to drop some major information on you...Our cable is out and can't be fixed for 7 days!!!! S-E-V-E-N  D-A-Y-S-S-S..... If you sense my panic about missing the gymnastics, you'd be correct.  Guess I'll be watching it on my laptop, or consistently inviting myself over to friends' houses.  Oh me...

That's all I've got for today...

Time to brew that second pot of coffee...

I think I'm just going to move into McKay's. I'll just live in it. There's more than enough space, and I'll just move around every day, so I'm never blocking the same section two days in a row.

Wow, those books..I think I'd be in heaven! :)
I watched the gymnastics today! It was amazing! I hope you get to watch it, the whole event was amazing! Foreign men with massive muscles...That's definitely a tick in my book!

Hi Mae
I've just found your blog looking forward to reading more.
I can't believe that bargain book shop it is HUGE!
Hope you got to watch the Mens Gym yesterday it was brilliant. I felt like I'd done every single routine with them and I'm not even able to do a handstand without toppling over!!
Take Care

I love books. Especially old & worn books - you know the kind that you know have been read a dozen times or more. Love them. Which is why I've been hitting up Goodwills on Saturdays - but, never have I seen such a used book selection. Looks like you hit a gold mine!

because of Him,

Wooo Wee! That is a big book store! I went to Powell's bookstore in Portland, OR once and it was huuuuge. I actually got lost. Definitely check it out one day if your around there. ;)

Wowza! That bookstore looks amazing. I could loose myself in there for hours.

I've read Jewel and liked it.
