I had a great Saturday…
I had plans to meet my friend Doreen. She was so sweet and bought tickets for us for a play at the Gallagher Bluedorn in Cedar Falls on the UNI campus. Plans were for us to meet at 11 am at her house.
Well…that “junk” sale that I really love was happening and it was on the way to Doreen’s. This time around the junk sale was more garage sale. The gals that host the event were cleaning out the stuff that they wanted to move out.
I was tempted to get this toy box.
Kayla is collecting old patches. This was a great find.
Things were really on clearance prices. These lockers were only $1. They were rusty inside but if Kramer would have still been here I’d have bought them and he’d have fixed them up.
Check out the commode chair.
I got a couple of boxes of things for Kayla and a shelf for me..but that’s about it.
From there it was off to Doreen’s. We drove to Barn Happy. It’s a fun little shop just south of Cedar Falls. They specialize in the goodies from Iowa and serve lunches with the option of pies and other great goodies. Here is a sampling of the goodies…
The building was originally a barn but now it’s a gift shop and restaurant. So fun.
I’ll have to go back sometime as Doreen said they have antiques in another building.
After lunch, it was off to the play. Here is the booklet. The play was the Suffragist. It was really good. It’s the world premiere of the play. Doreen and I were both excited to see it and Carrie Chapman Catt was in the play and she originates from Charles City Iowa which is only a few towns over from us.
Doreen and I both very much enjoyed the play and recommend it if you ever get a chance to see it.
Here’s a fun note…
During intermission, I got a chance to read the playbook. Note the part that says Robin Kime. It’s not a super common name. I know a Robin Kime. She graduated with Kalissa and if I remembered right she did graduate from UNI with a theatre degree. Hmm. I wondered if it was indeed the same gal.
I told Doreen about it and when the play came back on, I hunted for the person that I thought was the Robin Kime I knew. I found her!
I later sent her a note congratulating her on a find performance!! SO FUN!!
When we got back to Doreen’s she gave me a tour of her sewing room. She’s so lucky she had a lovely space over her garage…a really nice big space.
I had such a fun day. Doreen spoils me. I really appreciate it lots. I love my kids and very much enjoy time with them but it’s also great to get out and do something with “adults” (not that my kids aren’t adults, I think you know what I mean…) I’m terrible at doing that for myself so having Doreen to get me out of the house is awesome!!
That was my Saturday…it was such a good day it made coming home and tackling my email not so bad!! THANKS a million Doreen!!
