Those Stores I Go To.

Ackshully, those stores I go to...there are two in Charlotte NC  that I love and show things fromhere in the blog...are huge.  I thought I would mention a few things because I haven't in other blogs where I show what I buy or what I enjoy seeing.

They are as large as the so-called big box stores.. and all consignment goods.  Usually somewhat high end.  Especially the furniture.  No clothing, no five and dime type things.   I never take  pictures of the furniture as it does not interest me.  I couldn't afford toby any, any anyway.  There are china cabinets for several thousands..bedroom ensembles for more than that, and desks to make you wish you could have them.  All manner of things, even paintings; and as John said in the last blog, they take you back in time when they have the old old antique things as those flat irons and gas stoves I have shown.  I ought to take a 10 second  panorama video to show how large.

They aren't pawn shops nor thrift stores...just consignment.

Wish you could come along.  I look forward to those stores each visit there !

Been so NICE!

Goodness.  It has been perfect weather.   At least it has been for me.  Cold in the mornings requiring a light jacket and gloves for awhile while walking.  NO sweating as in the summer with sun blazing and humidity settled in, no matter that you tried to get there at 8-8:30.  I love not having the back of my thick hair all wringing wet when I go home.

There has been sun each day!  Gosh, what's sun in this sunless cloudy and rainy land?  We got the sun and have had all the sun all week so far.  Makes walking all the more pleasant.  You appreciate sun when you can get it.

Got my daily step count in all four days this week.   Went out to eat supper with a friend last evening and there went any efforts to keep the calorie count down.  I had a baked potato with butter on the side (I barely used any), broccoli and a child's portion of chicken fingers.  That's where it all went to pieces.  They are so full of calories and sodium.  BUT I only do that once in a while.

Last Week

Last of the fabulous days before 7 days of incessant rain, heat and humidity that was unbelievable.

The past three days have been nice again , with very little humidity and about 55-60 degrees at night.

Here was part of my walk before the horrible weather started again.

See you over at your place.

Looky Looky

I captured a cloud Hummingbird!  Wanna see?  The wings sweep back...the long beak is at 9 o'clock...the tail streams backward as expected.  That lower right hand side wing will clip that tree.  He'd better be careful.  I don't have to feed him or her.  Speaking of that, I do believe my hummers are gone now until next Spring, in April.  I will leave their food up and change it as a matter of fact this very day to keep it fresh for any weary travelers making their way back to their over wintering grounds.

They do remember where they get food, if they are "your" hummingbirds used to eating here even if it's just a stop off  at the restaurant of Chez Katie's Mommy Cafe.  Best nectar around.  Home made meals on the menu every time!
