June is such a great month for wildflowers. On a recent hike I especially enjoyed the pale pink rhododendron, with their freckled upper petals.
I recently found a local hole-in-the-wall thrift shop that has an assortment of 60s and 70s pieces. It was so exciting to find because the local chain thrift stores so rarely have vintage. This pansy-print collar blouse is one of my recent acquisitions. It was only a dollar! It's in perfect condition, but the best part is the fit. The arms are long enough, the arm-holes small enough, and - amazingly - the spaces between the buttons don't gape at the chest. I love the brand name too: Ms Bobbie. "Ms" is my preferred honorific - if you must use one in front of my name. I first became aware of "Ms" as a child while reading The Magic School Bus. Ms. Frizzle made it automatically cool.
Steven and I took a big road trip last year, so it's not likely we'll do a lot of traveling this summer. We did get the chance to visit King's Dominion theme park in VA last week with my sister Corrie and my life-long friend Maryanna. Corrie had found herself with some free tickets and invited us to join her. We all had a great time. Nothing pictured, because I decided to leave my camera at home. I also forgot to bring my phone. And a change of dry shorts. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The whole trip worked out well because none of us are thrill-seekers. Maryanna and I enjoyed some mid-level rides like the log flume and Avalanche (a bobsled roller-coaster built in the 80s) while my sister and husband sat back and watched the thrill rides.
Meanwhile, my doughnut appreciation continues...
