Weekend in review

Well the snow turned out to be a dud. I'm really disappointed. Instead of getting the four inches we had expected we got about an inch and as you can see it barley covered the ground.

We did get a little on the roof tops and bushes had some snow on top

But the only one who really enjoyed playing in it was Lucy

Since there was no real snow to play in my daughter and I decided to spend the day together. We bundled up really good because It was cold enough this morning that a few of the buildings had icecicles

We went out for lunch and there was just enough snow on top of the car that I could didn't need to worry about my drink not staying cold.

After lunch we went to some of our favorite thrift stores. I found a couple of movies and a book along with a really cool find. Someone had given away a brand new deck of tarot cards.

I have not seen this deck before, but for $3.95 I was not going to leave it behind.
I have never been very good at reading cards, but I still enjoy fooling around with them. As you can see my daughters cat Phoenix, thinks he can read them. Almost as soon as I drew the cards and placed them down for the spread he came over and laid down on top of them.

Anyway I was glad to get a couple of good bargains, because later in the day we went by the mall where I found this.

I've had my eye on this for a couple of months now and have been waiting for the store I found it at to mark them down. Today when I went in there were $10.00 off the original price so I grabbed it.
It is haning above my TV where I plan on leaving it. I need to move the nail up a couple more inches, and will need to find a new place to hang the flower wreath that was there.
Well that is about all that is happening here.

A "little" snow is still good. Be glad you don't live in Wisconsin where the wind chill was -30!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I MISS doing the thrift store thing with my daughter. She's away at school at UVA. We used to make a day of thrift store shopping and lunch on the occasional Saturday.
Good times! But the funny thing is that I have that exact Tarot deck, in that same box and everything. I'm not overly gifted at reading cards either, but I like to peek at what might be in store for me from time to time.

I guess some snow is better than none.. and at least you could get out to find those bargains! I don't read tarot either.. but anyone can so I am told, we just have to be open to it..I am always too busy to sit and ponder them!

I'm sorry you didn't get the snow you wanted. Now, why you are crazy enough to want snow, is another matter. LOL!

I love finding treasures at thrift shops. The artwork on the tarot deck is lovely. I bought some "Avalon" oracle cards recently but haven't even tried them.

How funny! I also found the Mythic Tarot set in a thrift store and paid just a few bucks for it. I never use it, but I really like it for the art and Greek mythology.

The Mythic Tarot is one of my favourite decks - very good for doing powerful inner work. It's funny about cats and Tarot - my friends and I always find that our cats appear out of nowhere whenever we start to do a reading. Somwtimes they even dab at a particular card with a paw!
