Julia and I are back home, after a busy weekend away visiting with friends. 
The photos below cover our trip to Ikea, lots of visiting, thrift store shopping {where I found lots of good books!}, and seeing Danielle's new house that she bought.


Julia, in the morning drinking coffee.

Self portrait.

The squirrel that took over the bird feeder.

We arrive at Danielle's new place, that is still in the works of being painted before she moves in.

On Saturday it was off to Ikea!

Stopping at the Goodwill Outlet-great deals and complete chaos.


Every trip to Ikea must include chocolate.

Back in town again on Sunday, for another trip to Goodwill (not the outlet), Target, T.J. Maxx, Applebee's for lunch and then ending with a stop at a book sale on the way back.
