Post #299 Celebration

It's my 299th post. And to celebrate (because celebrating 300 would be just too normal... oh, and I'll probably forget by then), I went out in the world today.

I took a photo so I'd have proof.

I immediately regretted taking the photo because I saw what a bad hair day I was having, and I almost bailed on the plan. Then I realized that the photo showed me still in my house, so what the heck does that prove?

Well, you'll have to take my word for it. I left the house. WOOHOO!

My leaving the house celebration (Oops, I mean 299th post celebration!) included a trip to the post office to mail the notes I'm holding in the photo above. They're ATCs headed to France and Italy. Too bad my celebration didn't include a visit to one of those places. After that, I headed to the antique mall and got the treasures shown below.

My mother-in-law and her friend Yvonne scoped out the green enamel pan and the Railways Guide last weekend, so I picked them up today. Here's the whole lot again all in a pile now waiting to be used in some fan-tab-u-lous collages.

Then I stopped by Java Johnny's to get a chicken salad sandwich and some Chai tea to go.

My little celebration was no thrill-a-minute roller coaster ride, but it was a change from my normal routine. Every once in a while I need to remember what it's like to put on shoes. And pants.

Definately don't forget the pants! It's cold out there. :)

Looks like some fun stuff! Love the green pan.

Good for you for getting out. Nice to venture out and see something other than the same four walls! :)

Mmm...and Chai tea? My favorite!
