Clever little art installment in a shipping container, Neon Dream, on Artist’s Row this Thanksgiving season. Difficult to explain, even harder to photograph!
It’s hard to see, but Santa arrived in Salem at the top of the Hawthorne Hotel and deftly descended the firetruck ladder, mugging for the crowd all the way down. A great tradition and a fun way to ring in December!
Mr and Mrs Snowflake have enjoyed their unintentional year long visit to our mantle and are very happy that their Tometegubben friends have returned to keep them company!
It had been several months since our last visit to Ikea. It was nice to stroll around, make a visit to Smaland, and indulge in some meatballs. We had missed our little visits to Sweden!
We passed a very nice morning at the science museum with friends. I never know what will catch their interest. Today it was this old exhibit that we’ve seen over and over and over. Today they spent almost half an hour experimenting with these programmable fish. Luckily it was a slow day and they had the room to themselves.
They also got a close up visit with a snapping turtle and built fish ladder models. All in all a good morning full of science.
Sweet friends discussing important matters over lunch.
Also of note, the “french fry hot tub”.
My favorite little morning view.
It takes a week to set up our book room for the fair, but at the end of the day it only takes an hour to pack whatever remains up! Three cheers for another Church fair in the books!
It’s always a good time to break out the good old, DDR!
We’ve been spending quite a bit of time in our book sale room getting ready for this year’s fair. Come on down on Saturday. Cheap books of all kinds, reader not included!
