Market Warriors

Thursday morning, bright and early, we left to meet a sweet friend in Canton for some shopping and fellowship (mostly fellowship). 

We felt a little bit like Market Warriors as we walked through the antique booths full of "eye candy".

Benjamin found a very heavy sword and decided he liked it enough to spend his own money to bring it home.

The day was absolutely beautiful, and after finding a few treasures for the "Choate Bed and Breakfast", we enjoyed a picnic lunch.  On the way home, we enjoyed listening to "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens.  It's our newest read-aloud, and the length of the book means it will be keeping us company for a while as we hit the road for St. Paul next week.

Oh boy! It's almost time for the real winter! So glad you get to have fun time with friends and family... I hope this year of furlough is truly a feast for you all :D

God has certainly made our furlough a feast and we are so grateful!

I love the sword!!! The thought of Great Expectations, not so much. :-)
