Bee-utiful Day


It was one of those heavenly days and we were off to Springs Pa. for the Springs Folk Festival.  I'll have to admit..  
Last years festival was better.  


Why?  Two words.  

Bees and heat.  


One of my favorite things to do is stop at the many yard sales along the way.  My #1 mission today was to find a crib set for the new baby.   I purchased the sweetest crib set for just $3 at the very first yard sale.  Then the bees chased me to my car.


 I found a very nice pack n play for $10 and a like-new car seat for $8.  And much more!   Yard-sale wise..  
today was a big success!


We only stayed at the Festival long enough for me to get my favorite...  a slice of homemade bread with apple butter.  I traded the usual hot vegetable soup for homemade ice cream.  

I pretend to be having fun, when really I was contemplating whether I should put my jacket back on and die of heat stroke, or let the bees have their way with me.

Gary had a burger and fries...


We made a bee-line for the car to get away from the bees.
Pun intended.




I don't suppose this is for me??
I guess it's all about the new baby now...  Whatever.

  16. That bread with apple butter sounds so yummy. I could use a piece about now. Sorry to hear about the bees pestering you. I'm allergic. I would have been scared. Your yard sale finds were priceless. Good job shopping. Take care.

  18. I am no fan of bees either - - - allergies tend to make me scared of them - - - plus who wants to invite pain from a sting!
    It looks like you did great at the yard sales. This new little one is loved bunches before she even arrives.
