CARNIVAL TODAY
These Oriental Trading things are cute and all but they take forever to put together.. We gave up on the ticket booth!

SHUDDER TO THINK
I was off today so I had to go check some things out for Glo's funeral… I was out in the North Hills mostly and while I was out I swear I saw a ton of these white trucks. Can you imagine being run down by one of them like in Nice, France?

Anyway, I got a lot of stuff accomplished today but it's still really hard to believe that there's a world without Aunt Gloria in it.

WINNER WINNER DEAD HUMMINGBIRD DINNER
My boss and I spent the day selling tickets for the Benevolent Fund at St Margaret's Hospital.

I went into the bathroom and saw they had these foam hand sanitizer things…  We became aware of them when we walked into the hospital at Norfolk and they were on the doors and they sprayed all over us. We ended up buying them and their holder for Dixon House. I totally forgot about them until now. ;-

Side note - I haven't done this in awhile. Remember my fascination with dead things? When we got back to the office we were walking in and came across this dead hummingbird. I haven't looked up the symbolism of that yet. Not sure I want to. Rest in peace little bird. I wanted to pick you up and kiss you but realized that would have been gross so I didn't.

PLAYING IN THE DIRT
I bought a few things for the fairy garden

A rusty scooter ( I may paint it) and a metal bucket and a red wagon and a rosebud trellis.

I also got a few friends… meet dragonfly, ladybug and, my fave, hedgehog.

Every fairy and pug fairy should have a hedgehog as a pet. It's mandatory.

OUT AND ABOUT
Cara and I went to some church sale yesterday in Greensburg. It must have started during the week because everything was already half off.  I got a dancing Chicken Little and a crewel painting and a butter bell, among other things.

We saw some signs for the Crabtree firework festival so we messed around and did some shopping and were one of the first ones there…all the booths weren't even set up yet.

I love little town festivals. We didn't stay for the fireworks but we did have a funnel cake.

and then found out that the pot of gold is, in fact, located at Target.

TABLE FOR 4

We went to Johnny's tonight. Cousin Roxanne was in from Chicago and she was singing there as she often does when she's in town.

I dream about this chicken…

Pistachio cake… prettier than it tasted. Get the coconut cream pie.
