Remember when we talked about "balloons"?

Well.....I've been getting bouquets of balloons lately. Yesterday, it was the serger. Today? Today we got an old Persian rug, in colors that look fantastic with the dining room, in a size that fits PERFECTLY under the table....for $43.

I don't know WHAT is going on....because if we're going Home, why did I need a rug (and why do I need to be frantically painting the walls/trim? I mean.....Anna said "resale"..which I had wondered about, but if so, the rug was NOT necessary. Nor was the serger......)?

It's...odd. I mean......we ran into town to get the pool water checked, and I stopped at Half Price to get a book on using the serger (had to go to JoAnn's, because HP didn't have any - but JoAnn's is just across the shopping center).....and as we were heading home, SG saw the little Antique store the kids and I went to a month or so ago. He wanted to stop.....and there was The Rug.

I'm almost afraid to run to the store again...:lol:

We did hit a letterbox on the way home - it was hard to find. Herself has good eyes, though - and the stamp was pretty cool.

Anyway - anything weird going on elsewhere, or am I just "lucky"? 'Cause this...this is odd, given the Season we're about to enter into.
