November 1st and 45 years

What would thrifters like to do on their 45th Anniversary?

Memories. I think I can remember just about every minute of our wedding day. So young and so sure. Boy, we had a LOT to learn. The thrifting genes came from our parents, born in the 1920's and their parents who were born in the 1890's who passed out what they learned and knew about the true meaning of doing without, mending, reusing, repairing and repurposing and so much more.



So, to celebrate today we went thrifting.

Drove up the valley to Chilliwack to check out a Flea Market, found a few of things. Visited a beautifully run Thrift Store (more finds) and had lunch in Agassiz and drove on to Dewdney to the Elementary School Garage Sale. Came home through Fort Langley.



Brilliant fall weather. By 8:30 am the fog clouds were lifting as we drove down the freeway and the sun started to shine through and then, no fog, bright sunlight on the fall foliage. A brief holiday from responsibilities.



Didn't take my camera so just imagine a splendid day in the country (part of the drive was on the freeway, the rest on side roads, back roads, secondary roads...) with fall foliage, eagles diving for salmon, Canada Geese flocked on farm fields, clouds, fog, sunshine and uninterrupted time to talk. A day to remember.


Thanks for visiting.
